Principal's Message
Willowbrook Public School is a welcoming school environment where all families are supported and valued as partners in education. We are a diverse school community and we lead by example, celebrating the diversity within our school community and emphasizing the importance of inclusion and acceptance. Our committed staff strive to foster a strong sense of belonging for all students, and we actively demonstrate how embracing diversity enriches our school learning environment, and a safe and caring school climate. Willowbrook Staff emphasize a sense of community within the school, where every student, staff and parent member contributes to its success. We highlight the importance of unity, inclusivity, and support among all students, parents, and staff. Our dynamic, robust school council supports the school in a variety of ways through Parent Engagement, Focused Fund-Raising and collaborative support for families..
The instructional program and teaching at Willowbrook P.S. promote and encourage a growth mindset where challenges are simply new opportunities for growth and learning. Aligning Culturally Responsive Pedagogy to Curriculum, we build Identity – Affirming Learning and Teaching environments that inspire all students to strive for excellence in academics, extracurricular activities, and personal development. We promote a culture of innovation and creativity, encouraging students to think outside the box and pursue their passions. Our team highlights Willowbrook’s commitment to providing opportunities for all students to explore new ideas, pursue their interests and strive for high standards of excellence.
Willowbrook Staff foster a climate of well-being by building students’ resilience and focus on   empowerment. We promote the importance of resilience and determination in overcoming obstacles and achieving success. Students learn to understand and apply effective strategies to overcome disappointments and self- doubt. The Healthy Schools and Wellness Team facilitates many innovative opportunities for learning and exploring emotions and self-regulation. Students are invited to share their stories of resilience to inspire others to keep sight of the path ahead, even when faced with challenges.
Throughout the school year, we empower students to take ownership of their education and become leaders within the school community. With multiple opportunities through the year, our students are successful, and recognize their potential to apply critical consciousness and a social justice mindset to have a positive impact as responsible citizens, who lead by example in their actions, attitudes and words.
