    Just found out that the overall rating has dropped to 7. We moved into this area because of the school and haven't been disappointed so far. In my opinion parental involvement is as crucial as the role of the teacher. I hope something is being done about the rating drop.

    Considering the large amount of students at this school I think they do a great job here. No school is perfect. Yes with so many students there are going to be so called problem students but I think the administration does a good job handling discipline issues here. My main problem has to do with so many students typically 31-32 in each classroom which is too many esp for the lower grades but that is not the school's fault. One of my children had a poor teacher last year who is apparently no longer at the school but overall the teachers are very caring and do a good job considering the large number of children in each classroom.

    Some of the teachers are very nice and really care about the kids. for the most part its all about testing and administrators do not effectively deal with bullies and problem kids

    WWE is a great school overall. My daughter attended there K-2 grade. She always complained about kids her age being mean to her. I felt like I was always in the office expressing concern. But felt nothing was done. I emailed her teacher and was always involved in her school but like I said I just felt that they nothing to help out in this matter. I wasn't the only parent with this problem.

    This is such a great school. The teachers are top-notch!! The teachers really care about their students. The parent-involvement is incredible. My son loves Wilson. Yet I wish the school wasn't so large. There are so many students. When it a party day or awards assembly the streets all around the school are lined with cars. Dismissal can be stressful. The school has too many buses. The other schools in our area do not have such a large population. The boundaries need some tweaking.

    This school is being punished by the school district because OTHER school are failing API language score Wilson is being forced to spend a mandatory 2 hour period in the morning doing low level language arts lessons which are far below grade level. The principal is LIMITING the AR program access to the students and not allowing the teachers to have parents volunteer in the classrooms. My upper-grader RARELY has time for science or social studies in class due to this district mandate (thanks Superintendent!) In contract this past week the principal announced they are in the process of becoming a CA Distinguished school yet the children are STILL getting lessons below grade level. The poor performing schools should be given this mandate NOT Wilson. I also feel there are SEVERAL mentally challenged children who are immersed in with the regular classrooms that cause great disruptions in the class as I have witnessed in one of my children's classes there is a student who has not finished a single homework assignment this year does not stay in their seat talks and wants attention and disrupts the class taking away valuable time fro the students. A change in admin is needed.

    I miss this school! Principal took my colts hat cause I wore it backwards 10 years ago. I still remember that hat.

    This school is all about looks.. It has a great looking package but when you open it up it's not at all what they make it out to be. The staff are concerned with their image not with the children. We moved from a district where the children always came first your child's teacher called you at the first sight of any academic or social struggle wether it be big or small. My son has suffered since attending this school he has been bullied by children 3 years older than him and was then punished for being bullied. My son used to have a wonderful excitement towards school he was making great strides academically and socially now that has all disappeared. He walks into school with his head down and makes every excuse not to go to school. If I could do it all again I would have toured the school and spoken with other parents before moving to this area. If you're thinking of having your child attend here please take a tour and get other parents input before making a decision.

    As a teacher in another district I am so happy with my child being at Wilson. Her Kinder teacher was wonderful and I love her first grade teacher this year. So far the principal has been very understanding and supportive of me as a parent. Budget cuts have hit every school but I think they are doing the best they can with the money they do have.

    NOT happy with this school's 2010-11 YEAR! Traditional calender has really changed this school! I miss having TRACKS My child is in a class of 30+students=( The PTA President is a really sweet person/parent! But due to unfortunate budget cuts the school has terminated school events! Also the the new Asst.Principal seems very superficial (as well as some of the PTA staff!) I cant take her serious as a professional educator! This school is based on looks! I live walking distance of the school so it's a convenience for my kids and I ! Otherwise I would take my kids elsewhere!

    Woodrow Wilson Elementary is a wonderful school with a highly trained staff and unbelievable parent participation. We have 4 children and have been affiliated with 3 elementary schools 2 in O.C. and Wilson in Corona. Out of all three schools the atmosphere for learning has been the best at Wilson.

    Great school teachers and area. My youngest started in KG all the way through 6th grade with several other boys on our street.

    My son has been going to Wilson for three years now I absolutely love this school the principal is awesome and so are the teachers

    Great Teacher. Principal could be more empathic to special need children. Instead she is more concern over her school's image and stats.

  • (7 years ago)

    Excellent school. A track has the best teachers. Kindergarten and 3rd and 4th are wonderful!

    Wilson Elementary has been a blessing to me and my children. It is a phenomenal school better than I had expected (coming for OC)! Strong points are the Principal Dr. Hall and VP whose #1 concern is always the children (their safety and education). PTA has provided a variety of activities (both educational and fun!) and with the help of enough parent volunteers can really be an outstanding group. We are privileged to have some of the finest teaching staff around who in my opinion are the reason for my child/ren exceptional study habits. Wilson also has superb academic programs to offer depending on the year (they differ) which has allowed my child to be challenged to his/her maximum potential. Excellent school!

    My Son attended Miss Tribolet's (Miss T) Class for Kindergarden. The Teacher is MAGNIFICENT. She is very caring and puts herself on the level of the Children. The programs and Activities were excellent and my Son looked forward in going to school everyday. I was also called to help in the classroom a few times and I enjoyed it along with the other Mothers.
