Grade 3-6 (“Lower School”)

WillowWood is a co-ed independent, private school for Grades 1-12
2020 is our 40th successful year delivering student-centered programming


Individualized Teaching

Our small class sizes and individualized programming allow students to work at their challenges, find and embrace their strengths and passions, and reach their potential.

A student might be advanced in one subject area and need help in another. For example, if the student was excelling in English and struggling in Math, they can work at two grade levels at the same time.

"They help the students create, then build work practices that will set them up for success not only for exams but for life moving forward." Jonathan Landon (Click to read the full review)

40 Years delivering targeted, personalized education that considers each student’s unique needs, inclinations, strengths, and learning styles.

Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts, and Mathematics = STEAM

STEAM is an integrated approach to learning. All of our teachers provide individualized support for each student.

Academic Performance & Technology

It has chan­­­ged the way children can learn – and – how teachers can teach.

Technology is an integral part of our teaching and learning process through several evidence-based practices designed to support academic performance.

Finding each student’s areas of passion and strengths is a key focus. All of the staff (not just the teachers) keep an eye out for opportunities which may allow a student to find or explore a talent or interest – whether this is in a subject area, an extracurricular activity, a social situation or any other niche.


Strategies for writing test, project-completion, studying, and social skills are included in every grade.

Personalized social skills development can help your child to:

  • Cope with stress

  • Work effectively in teams

  • Treat others with respect
