This is a great school. My daughter (Mia) is in 4th grade and the teachers are phenomenal. Mia previously attended an all G.T. ( Gifted and Talented) school that we loved and I was worried about her transferring to this elementary. My fears were soon put to rest and the teachers went out of their way to make her feel at home. They always responded to any questions I had and promptly returned calls or emails. Mia's math scores also greatly improved due to Mia's talented mathematics teachers. Thanks again Willow Bend!
