I like the school I see progress in my kids

I was a student at this school, not anymore. I would sometimes get myself in trouble, I've been in the office twice. I believe that it didn't matter if I went to the office or not, I'd still get in trouble. If you were bullied and told your teacher, they helped and send the bullies to the office. In the office the bully would tell the principal that it was your fault ( even when it wasn't ), and it just becomes one big, stressful mess. But in the end you both get in trouble. They ask you to tell them what happened, even if it doesn't matter. You're going to get a 'major' or 'Level 1'. It's like they talk to you to make you feel as if you have power in the situation, they just give you a 'major' and don't bother to fix the problem. An OK school, but some of the teachers way of teaching things might not work for everyone.

Knowledge, like life is a cycle. It starts with a question for which you seek an answer. Next comes understanding the answer and analyzing it which then leads to necessary action or application. This in turn leads to another question and the cycle thus goes on and grows on. At Willow Bend Elementary School, children s freedom and space is respected to enable them to blossom into well groomed individuals who can observe and assimilate knowledge through a process of self-discovery. The school endeavors to keep this flame of inquisitiveness burning in the child and we are pleased to see such developments in our daughter that goes this great school.

My daughter is a fifth grader at Willow Bend. She entered the school as a third grader. When she entered the school, she was behind in math, reading, and writing. She also needed speech therapy and she had discipline problems. The teachers and staff worked with her to help her get caught up and her speech therapist did an amazing job helping her with her verbal problems. Her teachers were very kind and patient with her and she worked with them as well to overcome her discipline problems. Math was caught up in about two months. Reading took a little longer because she didn't like to read. Now that she's in fifth grade, she loves reading and is beginning to excel. I commend the teachers at Willow Bend for helping to instill in her a love for reading.

What impresses me about Willow Bend is that my 2nd grader remains challenged. Her teachers recognize when she is ready for the next level in a certain subject, and they move her up, so she is not bored and so she gets the most out of her classes. Somehow, they seem to be able to do this without discouraging students who are already at the appropriate level. My kids have not gone to other schools for comparison, but I am very pleased with the education my daugher has received so far and give Willow Bend five stars. Great school!
