Read what parents are saying about Wilshire Crest Elementary School
We were a bit nervous with the low ratings, but we have had the best experience, our daughter just started the dual language program and is flourishing! Her class has just 12 kids and her teachers have been amazing. Mrs Robinson, the principle not only knows every kid by name, but also has a great relationship with them. We are so happy we chose Wilshire Crest!

First, let me praise the new principal at Wilshire Crest. Mrs. Robinson has done a fantastic job this year. My daughter is in kindergarten and loves her school. There are issues from previous years that the new principal is addressing. She has a vision for the school. It is important for parents and the community to get involved to support her efforts. A bilingual program is starting next year!! And because the school is small, it functions like a family. If you have issues, the administration is accessible and friendly. Office staff is always smiling and ready to help.

This school should be shut down. Principal? Faculty? Counselors? Do they actually work?

I've always been on the fence about this school, but his last year (fourth grade) was it for me. My son has attended this school since first grade and the only reason this school is getting more than a single star is because of the principal. This school has a lot of potential to be great with Ms. Taylor at the helm. She knows the students/parents/families by name and is very attentive, but as one person she can only do so much. Like most LAUSD schools, the 1-on-1 attention for students in grades above kinder is minimal to non-existent, but my son lucked up on good teachers his second and third grade years. Most of the work my child has done this year is repetitive of the things covered in third grade and it seems many of the teachers are sticking to the bare minimum and/or are catering to the under-performing students. Instead of working to bring those students up to the next level, the better performing students in class aren't being challenged. There have also been a lot of "incidents" with students, parents, and teachers this year. At least 2-3 times per week my son was telling me some sort of story about students fighting each other/teachers, parents confronting students and teachers, etc.
