Willowbrook has so much to offer, from clubs to sports to such a wide variety of classes to take. Willowbrook is involved with the community as well which is amazing! The teachers are awesome! There is always someone to go to whether it is for personal reasons or for educational help. The food could be improved. As a student who is very specific and is driven by education, I would have really appreciated if Physics was not a requirement because it kept me from taking other science classes that would have been useful for my future major in college. However, I appreciate the number of Honors and AP classes this school offers because it has given me and other students the opportunity to not only learn, but to grow and challenge ourselves.

Willowbrook overall is a very put together school. Willowbrook has some of the best teachers. Our sports teams are successful as well as our music and arts. I would ask for more appreciation of the arts. The administration doesn't listen to requests for improvements in the music and theatre department. The one thing I would change about Willowbrook is making student's voices be heard more. Our population is very diverse and there are so many different and wild mindsets that if the administration would pay attention to those students, a lot of progressive changes can be made. Either way, Willowbrook is awesome. Everyone has a place ay Willowbrook
Willowbrook High School has a wide range of extracurricular activities that have proved to be the highlight of my experience at the school thus far. The main problems that I have with the school are the faculty and the overall bias of the administration and school itself. It is very one-sided and if you disagree with certain aspects of the democratic party you are ridiculed not only by a large majority of the student body but by teachers and faculty. Very rare does a teacher, in particular in the English and Social Studies departments, agree or side with a student about any political issue that tends to be conservative. Even the choice of textbooks, as well as the curriculum overall, are a reflection of the liberal bias within. The failure of diversity of thought within the faculty, students and administration proves for an unwelcoming atmosphere from students who think differently.
