WPS Curriculum

Comprehensive Instruction

As an International Baccalaureate® Candidate School, the curriculum at Willows Prep is rooted in global perspective.  International themes are interwoven throughout the comprehensive instruction that students receive in literacy, art, mathematics, and science.  Students are encouraged to make connections between their schoolwork, world events, and their own lives.  Interdisciplinary learning is central to the instruction students receive.  Extensive and purposeful teacher collaboration allows for meaningful cross curricular links.

Willows Preparatory School is a candidate school* for the Middle Years Programme. This school is pursuing authorization as an IB® World School. These are schools that share a common philosophy—a commitment to high quality, challenging, international education that Willows Preparatory School believes is important for our students.

*Only schools authorized by the IB® Organization can offer any of its four academic programmes: the Primary Years Programme (PYP), the Middle Years Programme (MYP), or the Diploma Programme and the IB CP. Candidate status gives no guarantee that authorization will be granted. For further information about the IB® and its programmes, visit
