    The Willow School New Orleans

    Public School,

    NEW ORLEANS, LA,

    K-12,

    275 Niche users give it an average review of 3.9 stars.

    Featured Review: Sophomore says As a sophmore that goes this school I really like it! 95% of the teachers you will meet are amazing and are really passionate. The classes are pretty rigorous, and there are a wide variety of them....Also I feel like if you (or your child) suffers from social anxiety the school’s culture can feel suffocating at times, as it is a super social environment. The other students at this school are all usually really kind, but from my experience some times the people can act a bit “strange” but if you find the right people you can easily fit in.Overall cool school, yall should apply.
