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.
I think this is a great school. I have 2 children that go to this school. If have any problems the teachers have been very helpful. They teachers make the learning fun. I am happy with Wilson
I have two children at wilson and we really like it. D track has amazing and talented teacher. The school does not have a GATE track but that's fine. All TRACKS are the SAME. PTA is also wonderful.
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.
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.
This school offers exceptiona; teachers, and all of the parents are really involved!
I currently have two children attending Wilson Elementry, one in 3rd and the other in 4th grades. I have been very pleased with the teachers they have had from kindergarden on up. The PTA is very involved and parent support is very high. The extracurricular activities have been fabulous. My children are involved with the PDM young actors workshop after school and love it. I feel the teachers are aware of the level my children are at and strive to challenge them where needed. We have bebated moving from time to time however, one of the factors that keep us here is Wilson.
This school has a great atmosphere of learning. Parents are very active and add so much to the learning environment.
The staff at this school is second to none, they are supportive of each other and work together for the best interest of the students. Parents are characteristically very involved, however it depends on which track you are looking at; B-track is the 'GATE' track and most of the kids live in the immediate neighborhood, which is upper-middle class. Other tracks fluctuate as to their demographic makeup and level of commitment to education. The PTA is strong but a little intimidating as it is really led by a few and manned by many. The principal will do whatever the parents want, even if it cancels out what someone else wants....but in Corona-Norco principals can be moved around with a little heat directed at the district office.
Excellent parent participation. The teachers on D track are really on top of the childrens strengths and weakness.
