Welcome to Willow Lane Elementary

We have placed an emphasis on being culturally responsive in our curriculum and instruction and provide opportunities for all students to give back to our community through service learning initiatives.

Willow Lane serves a diverse student population in grades Kindergarten through 5th. We strive to meet the academic, social and emotional needs of ALL students on a daily basis. Our culture and climate are core to student success and we want all students and families to participate in this important part of developing your young scholar so that they become leaders and role models in our school community.
