Willard is a homey and small community on the outskirts of Springfield. I have always lived in Springfield and went to Willard Schools. There is a certain calming atmosphere here, with plenty of small family restaurants and antique stores. I love Willard because it has small town charm and the benefits of a large school district.

I enjoy the small town atmosphere and friendly people in the community. Schools supply great educators with a wonderful team spirit.
I love how small and personal this town is. The sports, community, and safety of this area is magnificent.
