Wilton Place Elementary School Reviews
This school is wonderful!
They have a dual language program, Korean/Spanish, which is just wonderful. One of only two schools to offer dual language Korean.
The only problem is that this school is underappreciated in the district they are located. Overall, California is struggling to support the public shools as it is, however, despite the budget cuts and stringent requirements and guidelines they are forced to follow, they always come out on top, in my opion.
As a parent, I have always and continue to support the staff and especially teachers who remain dedicated to the children often times spending their own money to ensure that the children in their classes have what they need to have a quality education.
Every community, no matter if of a high or low income level, is affected by the citizens in that and surrounding communities. Supporting public schools and especially ones willing to take on challenging programs such as dual language, is best for all people as students in public schools make up the majority not the minority.
