I noticed a big change in school when the got the current principal in the school. My older son when to the school before the the current principal. The school had much better programs and did so much better on state tests. Willow Road does terrible on state tests in recent years, which i blame on the principal. In my opinion she is not a asset to the school at all. The school grounds look like a ghetto (ball fields are awful). The playground has exercise equipment that is for persons 13 and older (Willow Rd goes up to 6th grade). What a shame, 10 years ago the school was so nice.

In my opinon I believe that Willow is a wonderful school. The faculty and staff put the children first 100% of the time. Being a student at Willow I can tell you that it has been a pleasure attending this school. I think Willow is a wonderful school with so much to offer you.

My child attended Dever before going to Willow (Special Ed). Not to sound too negative, I am not happy or satisfied the way the staff has been handling my child's needs. Even though I have voiced my concerns and frustrations, they fall on deaf ears. I thought this was going to be a great experience for my child but it has turned out to be very stressful to say the least.

I am a very proud parent of the Willow Road Community. My three children have attended here and were and are given a fantastic education. There is one special thing about Willow Road that you may not know. We house the special education classes for the district. Having these extraordinary students in our school has helped to teach our children tolereance and acceptance of all regardless of our differences. I have seen on many occasions the children helping each other and participating in many activities together. I am so PROUD of our children and our school. I would not change where they go for anything. They are learning life lessons here as well as academics. That is priceless. This school is helping to develop not only smart children, but caring young people. We very happy with the entire Willow Road Family.

We're actually a Wheeler Family but go to Willow for K. I love WIllow & wish my girls could stay. The staff is fantastic. From the principal, Mrs. Capozzoli to Diane Byrnes the RN to the K teachers. You can tell they care about the children. Wonderful place!
