Course Registration & Math Placement

Math placement tests are given to incoming students to help our math department identify the best fit math class for your daughter. 

Course registration links are sent via email after students have completed enrollment. Student schedules will be posted on WillowsWeb by early August. Students must be officially enrolled in order for math placement and course registration to be processed.

Willows has partnered with Schoolbelles (school code S3004) as uniform provider. The uniform skirt, blazer, and PE uniform must be purchased through Schoolbelles. Blouses, socks, tights, and shoes can be purchased at your favorite store or Schoolbelles. Visit our uniform page for more information. 

Marla’s lunch partners with national and local restaurants, delivering fresh and delicious lunches every day of the school year.

Marla’s Lunch arranges for delivery to the front office and each lunch comes in a bag or box labeled with each student’s name. Only students who order lunch will receive one. Marla’s does not send extra lunches to be purchased “the day of.” In order for students to get lunch, parents must order it ahead of time.

Parents are provided with a monthly menu and must order lunches at least 1 week in advance; orders for the following week must be confirmed each Monday at 12pm noon.  The system prevents any changes after Monday at 12 PM. 

Microwaves are provided for student use if they prefer to bring their own lunch.

The first two days of school are half days to allow time to get acquainted, meet all of her teachers, meet her mentor, and come together for an all school mass. These two days have a special schedule. 

Your daughter’s mentor will be published in WillowsWeb along with her schedule. She will have the opportunity to meet her mentor during the first week of school.

Textbooks are distributed during the first days of school. Textbooks are the property of Willows and covered by the Comprehensive Fee. Each student is responsible for returning all of her books in good condition at the end of the year. 

Students are responsible to purchase any summer reading materials or check them out from the library. 

The Willows lunchroom has microwaves available for student use. All students have a full-period for lunch. This allows enough time to eat, play in the gym, or go outside if the weather is nice. Many clubs and other student groups schedule meetings during lunch to allow students to participate.
