    I Am a student at Willis and I absolutely hate it. It teachers do nothing and honestly it's just like a prison the teachers nor the principal Doesn't care about the students there. I asked my mother multiple times if I had changed schools and she still thinking about it so I found this website and she's letting me go to a different school but the time that I was it Willis was terrible. The students are even worse than the teachers they don't care they don't listen and they're just mean. Don't get you for what you look like and how you dress and their just snotty people (sorry if I offended anyone) honestly from the time I was At Willis I would never come to school if I choice

    This school is horrible. The teachers do not care about the students. There are 5 or 6 teachers in the whole school who actually care about the kids. My kid has come home crying on multiple occasions because of the lack of questions answered and the lack Of Effort to actually understand what is going on and how to help the kid. The principal does nothing and the teachers do not teach. My kid In 2 years has had 3 good teachers out of 8. The bad teachers were horrible. 1 star for you Willis.

    My daughter really enjoyed her first year at Willis. Best grades yet and when she struggled in math the teacher helped us find a wonderful tutor. Last week my daughter asked if she could have a math tutor again. Can't wait for the new year to start next week.

    Their is no principle leadership here at this school. You can not get the extra help your child needs when you ask they ignore the questions. Some of the teachers give up on the student. And the principle and assistant principle does not follow through on anything. But they have no problem calling you constantly and when you take on the problem there is nothing. No help from that point on. Very disappointed in this school and how the school handles even serious situations they dismiss it all they do not take responsibility for their wrong doing just blame the parent or say nothing to the matter at all. It is a shame I should have left my son in his old school he was cared for much better.

    I am neither excited nor disappointed in this school as a parent. Like many schools in the district bullying is common. My daughter comes home daily with stories of being called names (vulgar ones) in front of teachers who do little to put a stop to it. She has sat down with one of the bullies twice in a period of two months and still is harrassed daily by this child and her friends. Accademically they don't really challenge my kids. One tested high (99th percentile) on the standardized tests and comes home with the same exact homework as the one who tested average. There is no real gifted program.

    I love Willis. It's a little big but this school has excellent teachers and expectations.
