Amazing school!! Teachers really engage with kids. You get a real private school feel at this school. My son loves this school! Turned down a day at Disneyland for his bday as to not miss a day at Wildomar Elementary! They push him to excel & his teacher last year offered him higher grade work. He is excited about school and learning thanks to this awesome school!

So far so good! I have high hopes for this school year and the energy that the teachers give these kids! The office staff is amazing! Nothing like our last school! Just wish I had switched schools earlier!

Such a great school!! Small so it feels more private, not too populated! Feels kind of like a family there. The teachers are kind, sincere, and genuine! and care about the well being of each student! They know how to challenge your child in a comfortable exciting way! My daughter loves the school, teachers, staff and events held at this school! Happy for her to start another year here!

Wildomar Elementary is a great school!! Both of my children are at the top of their class and I really feel my children are being challenged to learn more. My 1st grader is reading at a 3rd grade level and the teacher facilitates this. For me, having advanced children who are still being challenged is very important. Dr Barr is great, and all of the teachers and aids really love these children! I would recommend this school to anyone who wants their children to grow up in a great school!

As an educator myself, I look beyond the API score and beyond the other "Great School" factors. I think Wildomar Elementary School is the gem of the valley and most under appreciated. It is important that students learn to love school and have a passion for knowledge. What is not important is a test score that other parents use as bragging tools. WES educates the whole child and makes sure that its students explore, create, play and learn. I'll take that over teaching my child how to take a standardized test any day. I wish some of the other schools in the valley used this model as well. Thank you WES for making Elementary School great for my children.

Because they provide there students with the tools they need for life. The teachers have shown exemplary work in helping there students achieve success! Great little town and Honest little school to grow up in! They helped me succeed when we moved down to Wildomar in the early 90's. My education was not as advanced because I originally came from a school district in LA that did not keep up with a higher learning curriculum. The teachers there helped me everyday to get caught up with the syllabus and help me become a better student. I thank them for all there hard work and dedication! Today I study Marine Biology. I have been so fortunate to do some work with SeaWorld and help teach other children what inspires me. I also am currently getting my BS in Marine Bio at UCSLB. Thank you Wildomar Elementary ~ You laid a foundation For my future Dreams

I have been teaching at WES since 2000. I have taught at 4 other schools in my career. This school is the best. The staff is extremely experienced, competent, and cares about the kids. Mr. Reyes, our principal, is very polite and wants the best for each student. It's not a perfect school, but it is a great place for kids to get an excellent education.

Its now Jan 2008, and our youngest has been in attending Wildomar now since August 2007. here is my update from 8/14/07 . Her reaading skills have improved tremendously, P/T meetings were upbeat, constructive & overall a good experience. They have family events at the school & the kids all really get a long. Teachers listen and truly love thier job teaching the kids & you can see it reflected in the grades & enthusiasm of your kds daily.

I have found Wildomar Elementary to be an excellent school so far. The pressure is not too high and hopefully it will remain that way. Some of the surrounding districts are so caught up in performance tests that the children wind up with academic burn-out. I am seeing that Wildomar kids are doing very well without extreme pressure. Overall learning is emphasized and the children are treated considerately.

I absolutly love the school! I drive 25 miles to and from wldomar school, my children are doing very well and they are excelling, the teachers are loving and I know and feel how much they care for my children as individuals as a parent that mean alot. The PTA is very active and are very into the wellbeing of the children, they go out of there way to make little things that the kids will allways remember. My children know every person there by name, it is a very close school, like one big family. The parents are close and very friendly, we get there early just so that we can visit before our children get out of school, we are all friends and look out fr each others kids. The aids at the school are priceless! They truely care about the safty of our children, they are all volenteers!

Over all it is a good school, but because of recent rezoning and lack of funds it really has changed for what it once was. The parents are great, but it seems at times that the school is not willing to give the kids more interims of field trips and extra activities.

I love Wildomar School, and so do my children! But it needs more things for the children after school. Even if there is a small fee. Something the kids can have fun in and learn. And I really like Mrs. DeSantigo. I am so happy she is there!

Wildomar Elementary school is a wonderful school. Although it has close to 1000 students now, it still has that small town feel. The principal has gone far beyond her call to make sure the students have the best teachers & score well on state tests. However, the pressure isn't too high on the kids to overachieve, so they really enjoy going to school... :)

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.
