I am so very grateful to WGE for all that it is has brought to my kids’ lives these past 7 years. The PTA is committed and they bring a lot to the school - extra curricular music, band, science, P.E., school festivals, after school activities... but I think it’s also the attitude of everyone there: the energy is We Welcome You and I am so so grateful to have had this happy place for my kids’ to have spent some very important years of their happy childhood.

I have two children in this school that started from tk-3 and I am so pleased that they are fluent in Spanish now and we actually went to Mexico for vacation and it was such a big help;)

We enrolled our kid in this school because of the TWBI program. Even though the academic part is decent enough so far, the bullying issues are incredible. My kid is in K and every 2-3 days we have issues that someone hits him, call him names, push him to the floor, etc.I've been reporting this to the teacher for the last month but until now, nothing has changed.I'm deeply disappointed and I regret to have enrolled my kid in this school.

Great school in every way. Diverse student body and kids learn both academics and grow up with what is normal in society. I have 3 kids that have gone here and all have learned a lot. We were in Palo Alto before and the academics are good but the kids whose parents have taught them they are better than others make it a terrible school system. Also once they get to middle school there is nobody held accountable and with those kids with lots of money drug usage is rampant.

The worst I have ever seen. The principal is unattached, uncommunicative, and generally incompetent. There is a bullying issue and the principal is completely incompetent. He is also completely incompetent in education and management. MUST BE FIRED! Anyone on the school board that supports this level of incompetence must also be immediately fired!
