    "I'm refreshed that a place like The Willows still exists. It gives me hope for the future! It prepares girls academically ... and also encourages them to make good moral and ethical choices now and in the future."

    "Our overall experience with the school has been fabulous. The teachers are caring, helpful, and willing to do whatever it takes to help each student reach her potential. There is always an eye on the social aspects and any problems are addressed quickly."

    "The teachers are highly qualified; there are several PhDs on staff. Most of the teachers have advanced degrees and all of them care about each other and every student. They are available before and after school and often during lunch. They service as mentors and advisers. Teachers are required to update grades weekly for our online grading program and that's great. They provide a lot of hands-on activities for our girls so that the learning retention is high. They honestly prepare them for college in a way that I am continually in awe. Our daughter completed her Capstone Project senior year: her topic selection, research, writing and presentation will undoubtedly help her to be a different and better college student and beyond! Thanks, Willows Academy!"

    "The teachers are well qualified for the classes in which they teach. A couple of them hold doctorate degrees and most have their masters degrees. The students are well prepared for college with almost all of them receiving scholarships to the school of their choice. The teachers have high expectations for each student. The students in turn set high goals for themselves and succeed in reaching these goals. The teachers are mentors and role models for the girls."

    "Many of the teachers at Willows have advanced degrees and have a lot of personal care and interest in the success of each student. The small size of classes allows optimal and personal relationships between students and teachers."
