Open Quote This is the third year I've had a child at Willow Creek and I have been pleased. The staff is very friendly and the Principal participates in activities for the school in a fun way (i.e. dressing up as a clown and making balloon animals at the school fair & Fist Bump Fridays, which the kids think is the best thing ever). They make learning something that the kids want to do, not just have to do. The teachers are passionate about helping the kids learn and grow. Close Quote

Open Quote A really great community school. There is balance of fun and learning without too much pressure or focus on testing. They are still fairly new and PTA is growing. My child has really grown academically and socially this year. 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.
