Willowwind is a dually accredited school, receiving accreditation from both the State of Iowa and from ISACS- the Independent School Association of the Central States. While our state accreditation validates Willowwind as a high performing school, our secondary accreditation allows for the autonomy in creating a more diverse curriculum. Willowwind cultivates an environment where students excel. Project based and STEAM curriculums are designed to ignite students’ interests and passions while challenging their abilities; this ensures that students don’t just memorize and read facts, but develop a genuine understanding of the material.
Beyond a solid academic program, we also provides a social curriculum that emphasizes students’ respect and appreciation in themselves, others, and the natural world. Willowwind has a strong commitment to developing positive characters by creating purposeful opportunities for students to act upon their desire to grow as respectful citizens in the local community and beyond.
