Post-secondary life is a continual focus at WillowWood. So much seems to be geared around getting the students prepared and really ready to go beyond the school and into the real world. At Willowwood it is not a question if they will successfully progress beyond the school, it is all about how they will do so and how exciting that will be. Many kids struggle when it comes to preparing for exams. From day one at WillowWood they take this super seriously. They almost over-prepare for exams and other things that normally would just get thrown at the students as an expectation. They help the students create then build in work practices that will set them up for success not only for exams but for life moving forward.

The focus of the academics is based on the learning needs and styles of many differing students and uses different pods to ensure that the students are working at a level that they can achieve without feeling overwhelmed. This method has made a huge difference for our child who struggled without this kind of support. There is no stigma for the students as the school environment allows for each child's differences and for their own personal progress at their own personal pace. This is the real reason that our child has progressed academically and is gaining in her academic ability. In addition, the focus on the exam taking process which starts in lower school has prepared her for the rigors of high school where exams will taken on more importance and would be more stressful if the skills had not already been developed.
