My brothers and sister & I went to Willow Creek School many moons ago. When I moved back here from Colorado, my kids got to experience all the wonderful memories of Willow Creek. They too loved everything about the school. At a Grade School reunion (thanks to facebook!) we all got together to laugh about the past & teachers & talk about Mr. McCarthy the principle. The school has wonderful & caring teachers all the way from the ganitors & the lunch ladies to the principals

I moved to Woodridge back in 2004 and my son came in with ADHD. Unklike the Chicago Schools his IEP was ready when he walked through the door. In Chicago I had to fight for his right to be examined and contact alot of higher ups to complain before something was done. Now my step kids are there and they are moving alon and adjusting fine. Thanks to the staff.

I love Willow Creek School! The Principal and staff are great.. It's a good feeling as a parent when your 8 yr old 3rd grader can't wait to get to school in the morning!! In 2nd grade my son's teacher Mrs. Durkin knew my son was a little above average in reading, and on her own time found ways to teach him and help us understand how to at home also.. And even brought the fact of him maybe becoming isolated from his peers to us and ways to make sure that didn't happen..The principal Mrs Sanfilipp and Mrs Durkin took on being in charge of my son's cirriculum from that point on..I have asked friends with children in other schools and most of them say they have never even spoken with their principal..Willow Creek is just such a close school and the parent staff relationship has always been great. I cant wait for my youngest son to start there! :)

Willow Creek has a great principal, Ms. Sanfilipp, who has done a great job running the school. She was new when my son was in Kindergarten which was 12 years ago now, and have been so happy with how things have been run or handled. The teachers have all been wonderful, I couldn't of been happier.

The curriculum is appropriately challenging for children at all learning levels. Special assistance is given to children who need help and gifted kids are challenged. Atmosphere is friendly, warm and clean! Teachers are accessible.

My kindergartener has never been in a big school setting before so I was a little worried when he started kindergarten this year. Willowcreek is wonderful because it provides all the amenities of a big school with the homieness of a little school. My son feels safe, secure, loved and accepted at school and that is very important to his learning process! The teachers and staff are very helpful and do all they can to make sure each child is getting the help and attention they need to succeed! My son says he loves to go to school.

I am a parent of a 2nd grader. We just moved to the district this year and I cannot believe the difference in my child. I didn't realize how lacking her old school was until I came to Willow Creek! The recognized her need for extra help in her reading but also foster her love of math. The small school size is an ideal environment!

This school is fantastic, we love it. Could not imagine sending our kids anywhere else. The staff is great and we have been very fortunate to have the best teachers around in the whole town! Actually I would rate it best in state. Thanks Willow Creek!!
