The IB/Dual Language Magnet alone is impressive. My daughter is in kinder. She already reads in Spanish at the 1st grade level and it is only the middle of the year.

Wharton has recently gone through various changes, improving it beyond the great school it already was. The parents are very involved and motivated to get its International Baccalaureate (IB) Primary Years Program (PYP) certification. There is only one other IB PYP dual language school in the city.

Wharton is not a wonderful school, everything has a dual meaning, literally. The parents are told one thing and another thing is done, beginning with the principal, she absolutely hates to spend money (budgeted) on the kids for improving materials, her ethics and professionalism towards insubordinates ...  Read more

What a wonderful school. We have two children that attend. Both have different academic styles, yet their needs are met. The principal is incredible, she really appears to believe in the schools mission. Her daughter attends the school.
