Willow Glen Elementary School Reviews
This is our neighborhood school and we are so glad to be sending our children to Willow Glen Elementary school. The campus is great, the resources are many and the parents are heavily involved. We are a Distinguished California School.
My children are in the TWBI program. TWBI is a fully Spanish/English immersion program at Willow Glen Elementary School in San Jose. My children are in first grade and are fully biliterate and bilingual. Their teachers are beyond my wildest expectations of what an educator should be. One of our teachers was just named Bilingual Educator of the Year for the state of California. I feel very fortunate to be a part of this program and give my kids the gift of bilingual education at their local public elementary school.
