Willmar Public School District Reviews

The district is over stretched trying to cater to the slower students, to the point where the advanced classes are the same as normal, and there’s no such things as truly advanced classes. 3 AP classes in high school, no special classes in the middle or elementary. The school system lacks funding, good teachers, and good amanagement above them. These issues compound into a underachieving system, top to bottom.

I loved everything about going to willmar schools and all the diversity that is found there! You make life-long friendships and meet great people :)
It was a great school to graduate from! I have learned so much from there. I did not participate in sports but did other extra curricular activities. There were so many different activities to get involved in.
