20 Parent Reviews for Willow Springs Elementary School

This is an amazing school! I go here and at my old school here in Fairfax county I got bullied. But at this school I have not been bullied at all, I don't even know if I was made fun of.

I have had 2 children attend Willow Springs. There are some good teachers there. I agree with the other reviews, the principal, Mrs. Rhein and her chilly administration are more focused on the school's and her reputation than creating a positive learning environment for students and teachers. One of ...  Read more

Willow Springs administration is definetly the weak link at this school. As cold and sterile as this school is, the focus really isn't on academics. I say this as an AAP parent who has become very frustrated with this school and it's ability to challenge gifted children. Why be an AAP Center if you ...  Read more

Willow Springs is a good school, but I agree with some of the comments about poor administration. It is true that the school ran out of copy paper several months in a row this year, which is inexcusable. I think that shows poor management of resources. Also, most classes are now overcrowded, and those ...  Read more

I'm quite happy about the school at first time when I believe and send my son to one of the Kindergarten classes here. We'll send my daughter to this school this September as well. We wish all teachers and the Principal all the best in upcoming time.

I am not happy with the school at all. My child is a kindergardener, just started this year, and so far my experience is the worst. I have another child who graduated Fairfax County Public School, not Willow Spring, and never had any problem with any. Teacher and school administration at Willow Spring ...  Read more

This school is excellent. It is a GT magnet school which accounts for some of the high test scores, however, that is only 50% of the school plays an instrument, participates in chorus or the school plays. The school has received several awards for it excellence in education, music and the arts. My children ...  Read more

My daughter is in her 2nd year at WS. Downisde: some teachers are disorganized, and yell at the kids. The administration is fairly rigid. Classrooms are shaped oddly (triangular), which is not an issue unless the class is crowded; then it becomes a space problem. On the plus side: Some teachers are excellent; ...  Read more
