below. I wrote a really long review and somehow erased it. now I can apologize for the predictive text stockings = Wicklund and yup= up. We moved here in the summer of 2011 and I was severely misled by this great school rating only thing I can come up with is that the quality severely deteriorated before we moved here. The principal is unresponsive. Last year my daughter was receiving an award so 4 people took time off of work to come to the assembly and they forgot to print her award okay mistakes happen. Then they COMPLETELY left get out of the yearbook and no she didn't miss picture day. A HUGE part of our decision to move here was based on this schools ratings and we weren't going to take our kids from Pleasanton and their great schools to downgrade. Her last 2 teachers have been great and that's the only reason there are 2 stars. It does seem less challenging though than other schools.

This is THE best school that you could go to! My son is a special education student and the teachers go ABOVE and beyond to make sure he is treated the same by everyone at the school. Just an FYI they transferred ALL special education students to this campus so if the testscores are not 9 or 10 that is why. All students get tested the same and reported no matter what their capabilities which does reflect in the school rating.
Amazing school. Went there three years in a row and even though there is still cussing and bullying which is almost impossible to avoid there are people their who grow close to you in weeks even days. Teachers are very supportive especially Mrs.Michel a fifth grade teacher as of 2013. I have never gotten a better STAR testing score in math than I did last year in her class. Parents are involved with everything so is the principal and the teachers. Best school I've ever been to that's for sure.
Great School hard working and dedicated teachers and also have wonderful group of parent volunteers who coordinates activities to support school. Even though the API score of 2012 went down I hope they will have a comeback this year with a good CST score.Go Wildcats!
My son has attended since K and will enter 6th grade this fall. We've watched the school decline in communication utilizing parent/teacher ideas to offset state budget issues since the former principal Vergara moved to Questa. With his move the best of teachers followed. My 5th grade teacher Ms. Michel was awesome. But as I watch more teaches leave due to concerns of middle school we're now looking also. The biggest concern is teacher particpation. I've heard from several parents/students that assignments are written on the board but not taught. No real interaction. For some reason 12 years in the world means you need less instruction. It worries and saddens me.
Great school great community -- teachers & staff are helpful competent and genuinely care for the kids.
My daughter attends school at Wicklund and the communication between the teachers and parents is great. My daughter loves school which is what every parent wants.
My daughter has done very well at this school. The teachers that she has had were very caring. For a public school they do a great job.
Great school Great community Clean and organized. By far the best schools located in the area by far
My child is in 5th grade at Wicklund and I have to honestly say after moving from the bay area I was a little anxious about finding a good school. I can state Wicklund is the best school that my child has attended. The teachers are very involved and the other parents are completely involved.
Teachers and staff care about my child and is helping her in everyway to help her succeed
This is a good school. Our children have been attending since it opened. There has been a decline in the skills/standards taught since it has opened. The school seems unorganized - little communication to familys teachers office.
My kid has been going to school and is in 4th grade.This school was good before but I see decline in standards recently. We hope Teachers can rally and keep up the level that it was couple of years ago.
It's really a great school and great environment. Our two girls are attending this school and they very much like their school/staff that they don't want to move.
Wonderful School my child just can't stop talking about his teacher and the school. It does feel good to see your child so connected to the school. Teachers are great the Principal is a dynamic young leader who is determined to make the school one of the best!
Great school and lovely environment. Teachers are very nice and friendly. It is one of the best schools in our district. There is lot of hope for more success in near future.
Both of our boys are attending this school. We selected this location because of great school. Teachers are working very hard to make this place exceptional.
Great School! Love their unconventional methods of teaching. My children love it and feel safe and respected.
Great brand new school. Huge campus and Principal and teachers are trying to make this a great school which will be most sought after. Last year was the first year and my son was in 4th grade. He had a good academic year and we are hoping to see a good STAR score card.
