Willard Elementary

Message from the Principal


Francis Willard School is home to about 370 wonderful students in Pre-K - 4th grade. Willard’s school culture and community reflect the spirit of being a true neighborhood school! Children are at the heart of everything we do and our families and staff are passionate about working together to foster a caring, child-centered school community that supports individualized learning for students.


As our talented faculty and staff collaborate to prepare students for success throughout and beyond their academic career, they are also committed to igniting children’s natural curiosity, wonder and desire to learn. Engaging children in building their content knowledge in all areas also involves high levels of student peer collaboration as children work together, learn together and play together. 


Our Willard Wizards follow The Willard Way:

  • Be Safe
  • Be Respectful
  • Be Responsible
  • Be Your Best
