    I really appreciate how this school has evolved thru out the years. Their safety system has improved. I assisted Willow Oaks in my childhood from k-8 grade and now that my daughter is assisting kinder Garden at this school I feel really happy. I like the location of her room. I like the way her teacher Ms. Husty cares about her well being.
