• Welcome to Willard Elementary School

    Our Mission: To guide all students to become responsible, contributing members of a global society who are open and empathetic towards all people. Willard inspires student curiosity, perseverance, and lifelong learning through a rigorous and challenging curriculum.

    Willard School serves over 500 curious, energetic, and eager students from kindergarten through fifth grade. We are always growing and working to make our school a welcoming, engaging, learning environment.

    We celebrate our individual differences and work as a community to help students reach their full potential. Through professional collaboration, well-planned curricula, the informed use of assessment data, and positive home-school connections, we strive to meet each learner’s individual needs.
    Willard Elementary School services students who live in certain areas of Northwest Evanston.  See the links located on the left-hand side of the page for more information about our school. 
    Parents, family members and visitors should all plan to come through the main entrance of the school, on Hurd Avenue, check in and receive a visitor badge in exchange for their ID. If a student is tardy, they must also enter and check in at the main entrance on Hurd Avenue.
