  • I attended this school from 1981-1984 and excelled in all of my classes. It was a great school with the best leadership! I loved Mr. Freeman (principal), Ms. Potter (geography), Ms. Stephenson (PE) Ms. Chadwick (reading) and Mr. Ray (math). I really miss my best friend Kimberly Gist.

  • Dr. Freeman was the reason this Middle School was exceptional. He believed in discipline, rewarding, and encouragement of his students. Willowbrook received alot of Media Attention on the success of Dr. Freeman rehabilitating the discipline problems. I absolutely loved attending this school in 1981-1984. I wouldn't trade that experience in for anything.
