Willowbrook Elementary School 1

While there are few great teachers there. The person who claims to own and rule the school, children and teachers needs to retire and stay away from children or any human being. Do yourself and family a favor do not move into the area if it means sending your children to this school. If you have to move into the area please consider homeschooling, transfer schools or private school. I sat during a meeting with this person and when 3 different people who tested the child, their parents, and counsler said "the child is very smart and doesn't need to repeat" THIS person said it was their school and they would do what they want-- and did it while the child was on Summer vacation. This person takes the term REDSHIRT to a new level. (meaning they hold children back to make their record look good-- or throw the kids under the bus) PLEASE PLEASE reconsider sending your children. The damage this person has done to our family and many many others is a silent crime that is doesn't end very well.

being retired military and worked with people in jail and feel the leadership there is more like a warden than a caring educator.

When the leader says 'its my way or the highway'-- I think it is time for leadership to take a long roadtrip

I know a few students that are in counseling due to the Willowbrook leadership. Lucky for one their new school has worked over-time to delevop these skills in their students
