HISTORY OF WILLOW DALE SCHOOL
The name Willow Dale dates back to 1840 when “the Willow Dale School” was built at the corner of Norristown and Street Road. Over the years, the building became a private home until it was torn down in 1960. In 1969, the Norristown School opened and its name was eventually changed to Willow Dale.
The students chose the school colors of blue and gold. The mascot is Willie the Wildcat and our school insignia is the wildcat paw. Every Wednesday is “Wildcat Wednesday”. Students are encouraged to wear our school colors. Willow Dale houses 500+ students in grades K-5 and it draws its enrollment from the Log College, Willow Farms, and Warminster Heights home developments. The population brings diversity to the school setting with 13 other languages presently being spoken in homes in addition to English.
