There are many positive impacts of being a part of the Willard School District. The clubs and sports teams are extraordinary here and the involvement is off the charts. Teachers support the teams, the town supports the teams, other students support the teams, and parents support the teams as well. Willard is also very diverse in its culture throughout the school in addition to the different clubs that are offered. There are so many clubs in the school, any given student who tries will be allowed to be involved in a club simply because there is a club to suit everyone's personality. Since I moved here in eighth grade, I am very thankful to be a tiger.

I am extremely thankful to have been given the opportunity to attend Willard High School. Almost the entirety of our school's staff is devoted to teaching the future of our nation to the best of their ability. Through this school and their amazing science department I was able to find my love for medicine. There is very little I would change about my school, but the very little adds up to a lot. Willard High School neglects the idea of racism and homophobia in their school and refuses to face it. I would like my school to face this and give adequate punishments to those guilty of bullying my peers because of their sexuality and race. Refusing to face that bullying happens in our school causes many students to feel alone. I want this to change in my school so that all students can feel supported inside and outside of the classroom.
All the teachers care and are there to help. I was new in January and every teacher made sure I didn't fall behind or fell alone. Making sure that I made friends. Students are nice too, no one was distant or just tolerated me. They actually wanted to know me. They are understanding about different situations and will do all that they can to help. The no-phone rule can be stressful sometimes but in the end, it does help me focus more on things I can do during my free time. Some rules are more strict than others. In the end, its a good school and it wants the best for all of its students.
