My wife and I began Willow Bend Academy in the summer of 1998 in our dining room. We had 6 students for summer school. In the fall of that year, we opened with only 2 students, but grew to 40 by year's end. The school has been accredited for 13 years by Southern Association of Colleges and Schools/AdvancEd.

This is a safe place to share your honest opinions of a school, whether good or bad.
My son has been attending WBA almost a year and we love the school so much. The teachers are very responsible, and they really respect each student's individual needs. I feel my son's writing skill has been improved greatly. We are very satisfied with the school and the teachers. I personally believe WBA is a descent private school.
Mrs. Lynn Bauer from Willow Bend Academy is my son's 9th grade teacher. She is just about perfect. She is the right mix of patience and understanding, but also accountability. Mark works really hard for her because he has so much respect for her and wants her to be proud of him. Mark has blossomed under her leadership. We want her to be our teacher all through high school! Mrs. Bauer, thank you for all you do. Sincerely, The Von Ahnens
This is not for a single teacher, but for all of them. They are personally involved in the success of each of their students.
It is most rewarding when alumni return to say "thank you" for enabling them to have the college and career successes they enjoy.
I've been this school for 3 years. I like this school too much, teachers are nice and hige knowledge.to be honest, I am enjoy and pround of to be a part of WBA, the subjects could let us make much progress,and the teacher does,too. teachers have patience to teach me.this is my experiences in these years. there's a lot international students in WBA. at the weekend . school will give us a topic to discuss and make more chance for our English progress, it makes our speaking,writing,and listening to be stronger. the school's time makes us to have enough time to study, when we study we don't feeling a lot pressure,
One positive thing I like about this school is one on one time. I feel that it is a great way to prepare you for test or, if you are stuck you don t have to worry about staying after school or come in early before class starts. I also like how we have breaks in-between subjects. The breaks help me recuperate so I can forces for the next subject. Something else that I like is that we go four hours a day instead of a full day. The shorter days help me say pace through the day. One negative thing I don t like about this school is the monthly testing requirements. I understand why we have them however, I do agree for the reason we have them. I feel like they should lower them because it is stressful. I personally don t do very well under pressure of meeting a requirement. I do love being a part of this school. I can say that I ve made some amazing friends that I enjoy being around. I ve also made good relationships with my teacher and in addition other teachers too. I m glad I ve moved to this school this year, and I look forward to being a part of this school. -Reagan Hughes
Willow Bend Academy is one of the best schools that i have ever attended. The main reason that I came to this school is because I really was not making much progress in my old school. I did not think that I would enjoy Willow Bend Academy because it was a school that you basically work four hours straight. It turns out that I was wrong. I ended up loving their method of schooling. This school has helped me manage my time for both school and my personal life. I feel like I am a far more efficient person now. These time management skills will greatly help me for college and the rest of my life. Willow Bend Academy offers a wide range of courses that you can take. The school is is unique because they fit the curriculum to the student, and not the student to the curriculum. I came to this school with a great struggle in Mathematics. Thanks to the amazing teaching that i received, I have been making straight A's in Math for three years. Every single course that I have taken has been fit to my style of learning. You can rest assured that your child will be receiving a quality education if you enroll him or her in Willow Bend Academy. -William Merrill
