Here is an excerpt about Willow Glen from San Jose Magazine…
From the message “Smile … You’re in Willow Glen” painted on one of its buildings to the community’s annual street festival, Dancin’ on the Avenue, passing through Willow Glen feels like visiting a small town. Keeping foot traffic flowing, small, locally owned bookstores host authors, coffee shops feature live music, stores offer children’s and adult art classes, and a Saturday farmers’ market serves as a neighborhood meeting point.
Much as some small towns do, the Willow Glen community has a gym and pool that offer high school students free basketball, volleyball, table tennis, weight training, and recreational swimming during the summer. People can also bike, run, or walk along the Los Gatos Creek Trail, and find stuff to do at Willow Glen’s numerous parks, including
Lincoln Glen Park, which features San Jose’s first playground designed for both children with and without physical disabilities.
At Willow Glen’s schools—a half-dozen elementary schools, amiddle school, and a high school—academic performance and student attendance have risen dramatically in recent years, and a record number of students are taking college-entrance tests and going to college. Willow Glen High School offers more Advanced Placement classes than any other high school in the San Jose Unified School District and has met its improvement goals on the state Academic Performance Index for the last three years.
