Willow Creek Charter began in 1999, creating a safe, effective school environment while successfully meeting the social, emotional and academic needs of each child.
We understand that a successful school needs purposeful leadership with educators that take responsibility for the students’ academic success while encouraging teamwork.
Quarterly, we have Ranch Round-up, where our students enjoy the last day of the quarter in a fun-filled activity; from trips to the Movie Theater or bowling alley to a water day, where bounce houses, dunk tanks and firetrucks make it a cool day for all!
We all enjoy school performances, talent shows and fun days of learning science hands-on, as well as fun surprises like the helicopter ambulance that came and surprised us for a visit! For holidays, we enjoy a Thanksgiving Feast with everyone enjoying time with family and get ready for the next week off. We try to incorporate all of the fun into our school culture so students enjoy learning in our family-like environment.
Our multi-age classrooms consist of two grades. This teaching philosophy promotes cooperation, collaboration and allows students to develop a deeper and comprehensive understanding of subject matters. This also gives students the opportunity to build personal self-esteem while aiding their peers in a strong academic environment.
Our cooperative learning style fosters high-achieving academic goals while promoting respectful and encouraging behaviors.
At Willow Creek Charter, we are dedicated to providing the best public education for your child. Our classrooms are small; resulting in excellent student to teacher ratios, allowing for all students' needs to be met.
Rigorous academic standards are successfully taught through our research-based curriculum. The use of clear assessment data monitors the progress and improvements in each student’s academic career.
We utilize state of the art technology to engage students in project-based learning and our interactive instruction urges students to achieve their highest potential.
Willow Creek Charter follows the Arizona State Standards and completes required yearly state testing. For more information, visit www.azed.gov.
At Willow Creek Charter, we create a safe environment for children to grow and be themselves. When a student becomes ridden with fear and anxiety, learning is difficult. We have a zero bullying tolerance policy. Willow Creek Charter students encourage each other to reach for their personal best. We teach our students the importance of respecting adults, peers and their learning environment. Our students feel safe and therefore can put their efforts into mastering academic skills and pursuing their interests.
