What a great heart the students of Willow Creek have and exhibit. They care about their fellow students and their community.
It is a wonderful school where the teachers really care for their students.
Willow Creek Elementary has great programs to help all kids reach their potential, whether they have learning difficulties or they are exceptionally bright. Willow Creek Elementary has fantastic motivational tools, from special assemblies with prizes and entertainment, to get kids to read voraciously and comprehend at extraordinary levels.
It's a safe school to send my daughter to. Were staff and teachers care about are kids.
They care about the kids...it is a great learning environment. The principal is proactive keeping bullying out of the school. I feel safe sending my daughter there.
The staff is great and puts the needs of the students FIRST!! Keep up the great work:)
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 am new to Willow Creek this year-and I am very impressed! Great school, my kids love it and I am happy with the education they are receiving!
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.
