Emma Hart Willard School is located centrally in Berlin, near both McGee Middle School and Berlin High School. The mission of Willard School is stated as this: We hope 100 percent of our students will demonstrate the ability to: Think critically and problem solve in the disciplines of reading and mathematics. At Willard, our staff will be working to support your children to become better readers, writers, mathematicians, musicians, artists, scientists, and athletes. The school has two gymnasiums inside and playground and athletic fields outside. The Friendship Place, a boundless playground where children of all abilities can play, sits next to Willard School and is one of the most used facilities in town.
