No question this is a small school where people get to know each other quite well. Interactions seem normal. "WillowWooders" seem to feel quite proud to distinguish themselves from others. The feeling is more casual than what we expected with everyone being on a first name basis. While this took me back a bit at first, they have found a way at WillowWood to really make it work. Now I see this as a best practice in education. I would like to see a few more opportunities for the students to get to know each other better perhaps by using team building types of activities. When you don't live at all close to the school it is harder for the students to maintain friendships outside of school hours.

This student body is very unique and is made up of many special students. The level of talent in the arts is displayed at school events, but also the level of inclusiveness. Students are in a very safe environment to deal with issues with a really close connection to the teachers and leadership. The classes are small and the students get to know each other very well and are generally supportive of each other. It is an environment where the students learn about the different needs of each student. When issues come up, the support of the faculty is one of the best things about WillowWood - they know the students, their understand their issues and they are there to support and provide guidance on how to cope and relate.
