Our Faculty

Willow classrooms are led by master teachers; about 75% of our faculty members hold advanced degrees. 

Our Campus

34 acres of woods, fields, streams and working gardens is a learning laboratory for curiosity, exploration, and discovery with our robust outoor learning program.

4 buildings built for educational achievement with natural light, fresh air, and other amenities for optimum learning. 3 of our campus buildings are LEED-certified, including one that is classified as a Living Building.

Before and After School Programs

While we typically offer before care, afterschool enrichment programs, and athletics, to reduce the risk of transmission of COVID-19, this year we are only offering our Extended Day program. Parents must register at the start of each semester to participate.

Extended Day:
2:20 p.m. – 4:30 p.m.

Lunch Program

Locally sourced and healthy, our lunch program is available for all to participate in for a small fee. During the pandemic, lunch will be served in reusable containers in the classrooms. Typically, lunch is community-oriented; students in different grades sit together with a faculty member and enjoy each other’s company. We look forward to returning to our community lunch program as soon as we can!
