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.
The dedication of the teachers and principal cannot be matched with any other public school.
Best teachers, best kids, best parents, best enrichment programs, best PTA+ Booster Club combined called Friends of Wilbur! We love our school!
Wilbur is more than a school - it is a family. The children, parents, teachers and staff all work together!
Wilbur is not just a wonderful school offering great enrichment programs and fabulous teachers. It is also a community.

School employees and parents all work together to have a better school for the children.
The teachers and programs are great. The children get a well rounded education.
Wilbur is the greatest! Great teachers, staff and families who all help make our school one of the highest in the district! The kids love it!
The Wilbur team is outstanding. As a volunteer and an LAUSD certificated person, I see this school working to give students a good education with loving support and nurturing.
Wilbur is great because the parents and teachers genuinely care about providing a good education to the students.
I love Wilbur for the staff and of course the GREAT community! You gotta love Tarzana!
