The Willow Glen Middle School and High School Foundation was formed in July, 2000, to ensure high quality academic and elective programs in the face of technological, social, and economic challenges. The private, non-profit foundation was founded through the cooperative efforts of local parents, faculty, alumni, and public officials and focuses solely on the advancement of academic and cultural programs.
The Foundation is a 501(c)3, non-profit organization committed to making our neighborhood schools, Willow Glen Middle & High, the best they can be. (Non-profit tax I.D. #46-2106211)
We are parents, community members and educators who care passionately about public school education. We raise money through membership and community events and spend it on academic and cultural initiatives.
In addition, the Foundation is the face for our neighborhood schools, championing their strengths and benefits.
The School Site Council (SSC) is a decision-making group composed of parents, community representatives, and school staff that share the responsibility for the planning, implementation and evaluation for the School Improvement Program (SIP).
A School Site Council is required of all schools receiving school improvement funds designed to provide increased parent involvement, understanding and improvement of the school’s educational program.
The responsibilities of the School Site Council are to advise and participate in:
* Reviewing with the principal, staff, and students the implementation of the SIP program and it’s effectiveness.
* Annually reviewing the plan, establishing a new SIP budget, and making modifications to the plan if necessary.
Willow Glen Middle’s School Site Council is looking for more parents and students who would like to serve on the council. Meetings are held monthly in the faculty lounge.
The Performing Arts Boosters of Willow Glen Middle and High Schools has experienced wonderful growth over the past few years. We now serve over 500 students in band, choir, dance and theater. We are looking for more dedicated parents to join our team! Click here to access the Performing Arts Boosters website.
We are a group of parents, teachers, alumni and community members who believe that the performing arts are an essential part of public education. We advocate, provide volunteer support, and raise funds to ensure that thriving performing arts programs continue at Willow Glen Middle School and Willow Glen High.
