Willow Lane is a school that is collaborative, friendly, warm, caring, and inviting. Staff members demonstrate concern for all students and share responsibility for all students' social and academic progress. Parents and community members are welcomed and participate in programs and classroom activities whenever possible. Technology skills are taught and used by teachers to enhance the curriculum. Teaching lessons include elements of project-based learning and other meaningful, engaging, hands-on activities enabling students to demonstrate knowledge, equipping them with vital job skills for their futures.
Our hallways and classrooms display student created artwork and projects.
Our students enjoy coming to school as a result of the love of learning that we demonstrate and instill. Second language knowledge is viewed as a strength, not a weakness. Staff members share their love for literature and teaching lessons are multidisciplinary, including art, music, and physical education routinely. Our staff and students are enriched through collaborative work with local organizations such as The Wildlands Conservancy, Crayola, and The Allentown Art Museum.
At Willow Lane, we seek high levels of student engagement, creativity, meaningful assessment, and differentiated remediation and enrichment.
Most importantly, a positive school culture prevails.
