The mission of Willow Elementary School (WES) is to successfully blend a project-based learning environment with a rigorous 21st century curriculum with high standards for all students. We are committed to providing an environment that emphasizes learning as an interactive process focusing on the individual needs of our students to ensure that all students succeed.
We strive to develop critical thinkers who are caring, confident and lifelong learners in a diverse community. WES is deep-seated in technology-enhanced, personalized project-based learning. All students are immersed in the learning process through exploration, discussion, and reflection. Together the students think, work and create in a way that demonstrates their new understanding. Students develop qualities and attributes throughout their daily work, such as integrity, character, equity and accountability.
We foster in our students a joy and passion for learning.
The curriculum is rigorous, yet developmentally appropriate, providing the foundation for success. When preparing for new learning, students build upon their prior experiences through an asset-based model.
