I have one major problem with this school. They are constantly combining grades in classrooms like 4/5 grade and 5/6 grade classes.

I really am happy with Willard.When talking to my friends from the surrounding areas where the teachers and principals don't know there children names or needs, I feel blessed to have a principal who stands on the playground to greet the students in the morning no matter how cold or hot it is outside. ...  Read more

Willard School has undergone some great transformations over the past 5 years. We have a greatly dedicated group of educators whom work very hard to challenge our children. They continuously work together to improve the consistancy of curriculm within the same grade and the transition from grade to ...  Read more

It's cool! The academic programs are okay, may need a little work. My daughter's gym class is very challanging, but very fun at the same time, as my daughter says! The parent involvment is about a 92/100, most invovled are the PTO.
