    Excellent school. Great principal. Very involved parents. Great enrichment programs. Safe environment. Transferred my twins from a private school and have loved the difference.

    We were just accepted to this school and so far we are really happy. Great teachers great community! Highly recommend it! AAA+++

    Not pleased with the attitudes of the principal or my childrens' teacher. Refuse to maintain good communication with parents and had continually neglected to keep me informed about my childrens' progress or special events involving my special needs children. Bad experience and wouldn't recommend.

    This is a very good school for most kids. Public schools are not meant for everyone. For my child with special needs I had to go thru the IEP process hired an advocate and placed my child in the righten evironment. It has been a learning experience. Once we had the IEP many doors opened up for my child and she was placed in -a Non-Public School with LAUSD approval. Public schools have to accomodate your child therefore it is important to have everything spelled out in the IEP. It is not an easy process but very worthwhile. Special Ed. LAUSD manual is online and has a wealth of information. Cost of an advocate was so worth it!!!

    A great school unless you have a child with special needs. For my children without special needs I would rate this school a 5; for my child with special needs; I rate it a 2.

    This is the best school my children have ever gone to. It is filled with great kids parents and teachers. The new principal is a sweetheart and knows how to get the job done with care and compassion. We are very happy to have this as our neighborhood school and are looking forward to spending many more years there enjoying the great education opportunities to volunteer and to making lasting friendships!

    We were so nervous about our son's transition from a nurturing preschool to a public school Kindergarten. In addition we were concerned with the school budget cuts. The parents of Wilbur are extremely committed to making this school the best it can possibly be. Parents are always volunteering and raising money for the school through the Friends of Wilbur. We are so pleased to be a part of this wonderful community school. We love Wilbur!!

    Toured 4 schools before choosing. Our principle is AMAZINGLY PROACTIVE and open to new ideas. The Enrichment Program after school is unparalleled in the amount of options there are for a budding child. The teachers allow parental involvement and work wonderful as a team with parents. I feel so fortunate my daughter can go to Wilbur. Each year it continues to get better through the Friends of Wilbur projects and opportunities to make Wilbur continually advance.
