Topic: Admissions

The approach to admissions was excellent. After getting a full tour of the school, looking into some classrooms and speaking with some of the teachers, we stopped, summarized, then discussed all the costs. Key fundamentals of expectations not just of the students but of everyone at the school were discussed. Then they suggested that we just "drop him off for half a day and we will assess the fit for him and for us". While I was worried how he would do with this approach we were reassured that they have this down to a science. Later in the day when we picked him up and i asked how did it go, I will never forget his reaction to the WillowWood process: "I really, really want to go to this school!"

The admissions process is very easy at WillowWood with the most important aspect being that the student is the right fit for the school. We liked the opportunity to meet and discuss our child's needs with the leadership before considering the school. Also, a very big advantage was having our child attend the school for one-half of a school day to see if it was comfortable and the right environment for her. The school leadership takes a very thoughtful approach to admitting students and also provides assistance in understanding how each child's learning should be accommodated. They provide recommendations and ensure the proper support is in place before accepting students. It was very helpful to have the full understanding of the classroom and the teacher before admission.
