About Willow Crest

  • Willow Crest ElementaryWillow Crest is a Pre-K through sixth-grade neighborhood school located off of Tudor Road in the Spenard area. We are proud to be one of the most diverse schools in the nation. Our students and families speak a multitude of languages and come from all reaches of the earth. We celebrate our rich Alaska Native culture as well as all others, making Willow Crest a pretty unique place for students to learn and grow. While academics are our focus, relationships are at the heart of all we do. Social-emotional learning is woven into students' daily learning with the support of a part-time school counselor to help students learn valuable life skills. We also have a wonderful sports program! Students have the opportunity to participate in sports ranging from volleyball, soccer, flag football, basketball, track and more (all free of charge). For those students with other interests, we offer band, orchestra, and even choir. Willow Crest truly cares about the whole child!
