Principal’s Message: David Johnstone
I am the proud principal of Willows High School. On behalf of all of our staff and the administration team, I’d like to welcome everybody to what we know will be a fantastic year of growth and change. This is my fourth year here at Willows High and I am very excited to be a part of such a great school and such a supportive community. Willows High School is rich in tradition and community involvement, and I am proud to be part of this school. As your Principal, I will do my best to maintain the essence that makes Willows High School great and at the same time, continue to introduce new ideas and programs that are aimed at taking the school into the 21st Century.
We will continue to stress the essence of quality within our school and at the same time, reinvigorate the academics, fine arts, electives, and extra-curricular activities. This cannot be done by just one person; it is the on-going of quality work by students, staff, parents, and the community.
Willows High School would like to thank you for your ongoing support of our students and programs. We hope that you take great pride in knowing that you are personally assisting us in preserving and expanding the “Traditions of Excellence” that have long been the trademark at Willows High. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at or call at (530) 934-6611.
