"From the day we first came to see the school and meet the staff, we knew it was the right place for Brendan. Your view was that students should be challenged to their level of ability by a teach-ing staff that was both understanding and sensi-tive to students' special social and academic needs. It was exactly what we were looking for!"

I think WillowWood is the best thing that ever happened to me. This school has given me everything – confidence, happiness, great friends and memories I will keep with me forever … Thank you for giving me the opportunity to learn, play, and grow up here. You truly saved my life!

"John … has gained confidence in himself and smiles a lot more! He is finally seeing results with his hard work and gets excited when a new project is assigned. We never have to ask him to do homework, he dives in as soon as we get home!"

"Study skills! A lot of the teachers helped me figure out some really great study skills to learn the information I needed to know for the future. Not just for in high school, but for university as well. They really prepped me for what I could expect when I got to university."
Rebecca G, Alumni
"The student to teacher ratio is way better than what you'd get at a public school. The teachers are always there for you to ask them questions, and to provide insight into any of the things you're studying at the time.""It wasn't extremely challenging to the point where I wanted to give up or anything; it was very encouraging, always."
Kennedy P, Alumni
"WillowWood had kind of a feeling of a second family. I felt like I got to know everybody, including the staff and the teachers, in a way that wouldn't have been possible at a bigger and more formal school. There was an informal feeling here. A positive one."

"… in Simon's early years at WillowWood, we questioned whether he would make it to college because of his severe Learning Disability. Simon's teachers thought otherwise; they assured us that Simon would continue to university – and they were right. To date, he has received several law school acceptances, including Osgoode Hall Law School."
M and J M, Parents
"There are no words to describe the impact that WillowWood School has had on the life of our family and to Amanda. Her life has been transformed thanks to the amazing staff and teachers who went above and beyond every day. She has been accepted into all of the Colleges and Universities that she applied to, which was something we did not know to be possible when she joined the school."
