    "In all honesty, we had no idea what the schools were like when we moved to the district. What a welcome surprise that we just so happened to buy a house not too far from Willard. Willard has been, and continues to be, such an amazing experience for both my children and we as parents. It definitely is more than a school...it's a community. In general, the teachers are great and know their children and challenge them accordingly. Of course, not everything is going to be perfect, but feel that the teachers and principal are more than willing to work with both parents and students to get to their common goal. Would definitely recommend this school!"

    "Not so much. The principal talks a good game but rarely solves problems, particularly social/bullying issues. The teachers are good at the K and 1 levels, but are hit-or-miss in the upper grades. The parents can be unwelcoming and clique-ish, just as many of the kids are (llikely from the example I see) and not much is done to correct this with the kids. No great emphasis on art or phys ed (revolving door). Teachers will move on to new concepts before ensuring kids grasp the earlier ones, which results in struggles for many. I've had three children go through the school (one still in 4th) and given a choice to begin again, I would honestly move to Dewey's district."

    "Willard is more than a school it's a community of lifelong learners! We have loved the experience that our two children have had in this community. In kindergarten, both of our children were exposed not only to rigorous basics (number stories, reading and writing), but also to the context around their new education (field trips, poetry, practical math and science). While both of our daughters came into kindergarten with early reading skills, even children who had limited exposure to the alphabet came away with both the skillset and the love of reading. Our oldest daughter is now in 2nd grade and the learning and discovery process just continues to grow with AMAZING teachers who care about the whole child. The weaving of PTA events to the arts, afterschool programs to classroom learnings, and community events with the fabric of the school are no doubt why Willard is an A+ school!"

    "My son is in kindergarten and I love Willard and his teacher. He's learned so much in his first year of school and has had such a positive experience. I'm so grateful!!!"

    "Majority of teachers are good to very good-only about 3 to avoid. a great school and community spirit w/ lots of activities and ways to make friends. Great music program and 4th and 5th grade school play. Battle of the Books, Junior great books, young authors, separate ability based math at upper grades. New playgrounds sports teams everyone plays for 3rd grade and up. After school child care just ok."
