  • My suggestion to anyone moving to the neighborhood, if you can send your child somewhere else, do so! The school is on probation and I don't see any small hope of it becoming better. My child went from being on honor roll all four quarters when we were in Willowbrook to receiving her first D ever and absolutely no knowledge of anything learned. All her learning this year has come from home. Although, I am a single parent, I will tighten my belt if I have to and pay for private school. I'm sorry for the teachers who actually care about the students in this school.
