Primary school

The WillowWood Foundation program teaches children in grades 1-2 and is an intensive, personalized early learning program. The program includes lessons in language, mathematics, science, social sciences. Students are often tested through observation and informal assessment in order to adjust the personalization of teaching methods, to identify the strengths of the students.

The small groups, deep individualization of the Foundation program provide a flexible learning pace.

Students who pass the Foundation program easily progress to third grade. WillowWood studying is becoming more structured. Social studies, natural sciences are taught as separate courses, students participate in many study modules.

The Pod system allows students to access programming at a self-paced level. Children with an uneven learning profile can stay with their peers, access modules both above and below their age level (or both). The goal is to align the student's educational profile over time.

Events WillowWood School Toronto

The school helps students to find hobbies by interacting with clubs, teams, mentors, and the community.

WillowWood students are engaged in various types of creativity: drawing, sculpture, painting, collage, installation art, technical studying.

In recent years, the visual arts program has been strengthened and expanded with digital arts - photography, film, web design, app design - and is increasingly integrated into other courses and areas of the school. Visual arts students showcase their work in gallery exhibitions, film screenings, school performances, and the spring musical. Courses include photography, technical arts, dance, writing, and more.

The theater program has been running for decades. There is a tradition of holding two large annual performances - a holiday, a pop show in December and a theatrical musical performance. They offer opportunities for many to prove themselves behind the scenes - in costumes, make-up, backstage filming, commercials and more. Recent shows include Glory, Beauty and the Beast, Fiddler on the Roof, The Wizard of Oz.

The music program includes music courses, lunchtime bands, Coffee House Open Mic performances, collaborations with a choir, and provides music for theater performances.

WillowWood is well ahead of the competition in its film study program. Students begin to study cinema as part of the language arts in high school; they can study it formally in the 11th and 12th grades of film studies. Many dyslexic students find that they have a good command of the language of cinema, and focusing on the unwritten aspects of storytelling allows them to identify their strengths.


  • A system of modules, a coordinated inter-level timetable allows students to gain knowledge regardless of age and grade. Academic support is plentiful and specific skills practicing is available for all ages and levels.
  • As a family-style school, WillowWood provides friendly, sincere communication between students and teachers: problems are solved directly, and children feel seen, protected from harassment.
  • Interdisciplinary programs and projects allow students to work freely with other students in the school. Projects include elements of science, technology, engineering, art, mathematics.
  • WillowWood teachers are qualified Ontario-based teachers who regularly improve their qualifications. Many teachers, staff members have worked for decades, and the school's open culture allows new teachers to attract mentors.
  • WillowWood classes typically have fewer than 16 students and spend most of their time in even smaller groups.
  • WillowWood students are encouraged to engage with the world - to be it charity, civic engagement, to travel, guest visits - as a positive contribution to the community.
