At Willard Grade Center, our challenge is to bring our student's elementary education to a close and prepare them for the Junior High system.  Willard Grade Center is a 5th and 6th Grade Center with a student enrollment of approximately 400 students. The services offered at Willard begin each day at 7:30 a.m. with breakfast.  As with all schools in the Ada System, Willard too is on the school bus system, which provides transportation within our school district before and after school.

During the 5th grade year, the students are eased into a class rotating system with a couple of class changes each day within teaching teams.  A full 30-station computer lab, music instruction and library instruction are provided each week.  The Accelerated Reader Program is utilized in our 5th grade reading classes.

In their 6th grade year, a full class rotation is utilized with our students exchanging classes each class period.  Each student has one elective course, which includes either beginning band, or computer/music.

Physical Education instruction is provided on a daily basis to all of our 5th and 6th graders.  Each spring during the first week in May, our 6th grade students are offered the opportunity to participate in our outdoor class environment as they may attend Camp Goddard.  Students are bussed to camp located on the southern shores of Lake of the Arbuckle's on Monday and return to Ada on Friday.  This is one of Ada City Schools' oldest and more prestigious programs. 

Willard students are offered many extra curricular opportunities.  Both 5th and 6th graders are offered Basketball in the Fall and Track in the Spring. Students may also choose to join the Honor choir, Academic Team and Science club.  Willard Grade Center also offers one of the top elementary Gifted and Talented programs in the State.

At Willard Grade Center, our challenge is to bring our student's elementary education to a close and prepare them for the Junior High system with outstanding educators and parental involvement.  Willard students are afforded a great opportunity to enhance their academic skills as well as grow socially. 

Willard Grade Center is an exciting place for 5th and 6th grade students to expand their academic an social horizons.  We invite you to come learn and grow with us.
