Why The Willows?

4th Grade Gold Rush Curriculum

The Willows is an environment "where great minds grow”–by design.

We want our students to live the credo: all things are possible. In order to do this, we strive to create a safe and nurturing atmosphere conducive to taking intellectual risks, independent thinking, experimenting, and dreaming. Our school culture, our flexible approach to innovation, and the beauty of our developmental kindergarten through eighth grade structure create a world where students are eager to learn and grow each and every day.

Balanced Progressive Approach

The Willows is dynamic and embraces innovation–not change for the sake of something different–but innovation that energizes curriculum, creates a dynamic campus climate, lends a new perspective to learning, and generates an exceptional community of learners.

DK-8 Advantage


Willows students grow through the years on a single DK-8 campus, in an environment that recognizes the needs of each developmental stage while fostering connection and continuity.

School Culture


The Willows is truly an exciting place. Vibrant student art graces the hallways. A constant hum of activity streams from classrooms and common spaces. The campus is alive with the love of learning and the “can-do” spirit.
