Open Quote We love the community and the involvement of parents at Willard. The Principal is amazing and incredibly supportive. The IB content is the sort of global focus we liked from private school options. The teachers are committed and create really worthwhile activities to help the kids learn. The Science teacher is amazing and we also love the librarian! Our kids will get a chance to learn Spanish and Mandarin (already have both in kindergarten!) and music when they get a little older. We love it! Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
