    We love this school! Our child started kinder last fall and we cannot say enough great things about Wedgeworth. The school's greatest strength is its dedicated teachers who are very resourceful and have the biggest heart our friendly principal is very accessible and highly involved. Wonderful Chinese Dual Language Immersion Program onsite Youth Science Center active dedicated PTA and parents and a low teacher-student ratio are also other big pluses. A small school environment truly makes your family feel like an important part of the school and not "just a number". The school could use some physical upgrades and updates but what school doesn't have room for improvement? The most important thing is that Wedgeworth has a lot of school pride and school spirit and it truly brings out the best in its students.

    Excellent staff teachers students and parents. I like the small school environment. Stronger art music & P.E. programs would make them even better.

    I am very impressed with the overall academic structure. My daughter started kindergarten in the fall of 2010 and loves her school. This school has it all put together! The principal and teachers are great and are very dedicated to their profession. I am a very proud parent and will continue to support this school in very way possible.

    Wonder no more! IT IS THE DISNEYLAND of education. You really know what's going on behind the scenes??? Behind the scenes are the BEST teachers BEST Principal and BEST parents working very hard to make this school the BEST school there is. The school may not have the best facilities but the resourcefulness and the creativeness of everyone working in Wedgeworth has proven that even without the most modern facilities it CAN and it HAS produced the best students.

    I know that this is a great school judging from how much my daughter has learned and still learning. I have seen my daughter progress and how much she is challenged (in a good way of course) by teachers and her schoolmates alike. The balance between educational activities and other extra-curricular activities is so important for the upbringing of our children and I do believe that Wedgeworth has done a great job in doing that. We just totally love this school the principal the teachers the students and co-parents. Keep up the good work Wedgeworth!

    As a new Wedgeworth I am excited and thrilled to know that so much care and atttention is placed on academics as well as social and extra curricular activities. The class sizes are small so the teachers are able to focus more on the students. The principal is greatly involved and always available. I can't say enough great things about Wedgeworth!!!!

    It is one of the best schools in the San Gabriel Valley. It has the hardest working staff supportive parents and wonderfully behaved students. The school is child-centered and wants the very best for every learner.

    Dedicated teachers and staff who go above and beyond for the children. Teachers and principal work very long hours here - way past their contracted hours! Our parents are also very supportive and helpful. Together we team up to benefit the children's academic endeavors.

    The school is not a big facility but definitely a great place for kids to be learning at. Both faculties and parents are friendly and helpful. The DAUL program that provides opportunity to the students to be able to learn a second language (Chinese) is awesome!
