Why Willow? 

The Willow School's renowned academic program engages students and challenges them to think critically, analytically, and creatively. A National Blue Ribbon School in partnership with university affiliates, The Willow School has mastered the art of balancing a rigorous academic program, with accompanying higher expectations, and student well-being. 

Our unique curriculum is founded on the concept of arts integration. The school believes strongly in the power of combining critical thinking skills and creativity to prepare its students for a successful academic future and to help them develop and grow into adulthood.

An Orleans Parish public school, serving more than 1900 students on three campuses, The Willow School maintains an A rating with the Louisiana Department of Education. It is the highest-rated K-12 school in the State.   


Understanding the Admissions Process

All New Orleans public schools participate in the NOLA-PS Common Application Process (NCAP). The Willow School is one of three Orleans Parish public schools with an academic admissions requirement. All applicants must complete the following: 

  • the NCAP application, with The Willow School, ranked as a choice 

  • the Willow Supplemental Admissions Form (SAF) which is emailed to applicants upon completion of the NCAP

  • an eligibility assessment at The Willow School
