the staff are really nice and friendly. This school loves to have fun, unfortunately that is not what students need to learn and excel in their future lives and endeavors. This school needs to concentrate on the core subjects that cause children to excel in order to be able to enjoy their childhood while learning and not held back in future schools because of their lack of learning in elementary school. Its sad when a school is more interested in making sure kids have fun and being their friend than their teacher, learner, mentor and role model to strive harder to want to learn everyday and not that playing is paramount in life.

Willow Brook is amazing! As a former student there I remember all the teachers being very helpful and kind. The gifted program I was in was great, I felt it was at the level I needed. 2 of my brothers had maturity issues in kindergarten so they were moved to a transition class to mature more for 1st grade. (Instead of repeating kindergarten and learning things they already knew) One of my other brothers was identified as a student that needed some extra help in math and they immediately moved him into a homework help program-no waiting lines whatsover. The orchestra program is amazing, you can join in the fourth grade which leads to an award winning orchestra in the future. The current principal is amazing (Mardee Miller is not the principal anymore), in the car rider line you can find her every other week or so welcoming and helping students as they get out of the car. The afterschool programs are designed to make sure students excel, some are for students who have trouble in some subjects, while others are for students who are not challenged enough in the classroom. Currently 3 of my siblings go here, all 6 of my siblings excelled here and I would definitely recommend going here!

My son started at WBES in the 1st grade, right after his father and I divorced. It had been a traumatic year, but his teachers and the schedule made a big difference for both of us. The year-round schedule has made it possible to balance our son's vacation time with our work/school schedules, which has been a tremendous help for all three of us. His teachers have been compassionate, the school environment fun and inviting, and issues have been dealt with with care and concern for each student first and foremost. My son, when given a choice between moving to a school with a traditional schedule and staying at WBES chose to stay at WBES. That says it all.

Willow Brook is a magnificent school. My daughter just finished her 5th year and will be moving to middle school. Their academic programs match the high quality of other area schools; they offer many extracurricular clubs and enrichment programs. It is the only elementary school in the area that offers the year round calendar, which is extraordinarily accommodating for vacation planning as well as children s retention. If you are considering the area check-out this school, one visit and you will be hooked. The Principal is creative, inventive and knows how to motivate the children and staff. The staff is compassionate and qualified and the PTO is continually moving in the right direction. Willow Brook staff actively encourages and appreciates parent involvement. Some programs include WBES (student produced TV), Strings, Video club, Wednesday Academy, and Ski Club. These are only a few of the available programs as there are too
