Our son loves going to WillowWood. The teachers, they way he's treated and what they do together all really resonates with him. Class sizes are well optimized - not too big, not too small. There is no question we think this a a fantastic school If there is an opportunity for improvement it is that it does take a full year to really get the school's procedures, contacts, events, opportunities timing etc all figured out. There are many clubs that are offered at the school While finding out about all of them can be a challenge the ones I know of are well run, enjoyable and successful. Everyone is encouraged to participate.
Our child loves to go to school every day and missed it during the summer months. The school has so many special events and unique supports for students that she feels very comfortable and excited by the prospect of each school day. The school has spirit weeks, celebrates holidays, takes fantastic class trips, offers leadership opportunities and has introduced her to meditation, yoga, mindfulness, current events, sparks and an amazing music program. As each year progresses, the students are given more and more responsibility for their learning and their attitude and behavior but the support and ability to connect with these students, makes the school a very special and safe environment. The value of respecting others is taught as is the value of respecting yourself.
