I think that Willard ES has all of the "right stuff" that makes for an amazing place for children to learn. The teachers are amazing (dedicated smart and up to the challenge to dealing with their everyday challenges). The leadership (Principal Collaso) is an amazing individual with NOTHING else on her mind but her school her students parents and staff. The level of support that she offers at every level is evident in the way her staff parents and students speak of her and her leadership style and approach. This is the school for your child...period.

Willard is a leadership school that provides quality education to all students. Various before and after school programs are offered. There is a computer lab where students learn word processing publishing presentation spreadsheet and video editing skills. Students are definitely being prepared to take advantage of technology available.
I personally as a parent do not like the school.The staff are not very professional and are not very attentive.My child is in a grade he is not suppose to be in in the first place.He has the same homework assignment every day and he just recently started bringing homework home after a month of school.
I notice more afterschool programs starting up which is definitely a step up. The teachers seem to be very good with the children getting them informed about the world and excited about what they are learning.
This school is a very good school. If you want your kids to have a good education send them to this school. This school even enters competions like Math Field Day and History Day.
