  • Poor reading skills program throughout the elementary school and school is suffering from severe budget cuts. They have an interim principal with no administrative experience. Oh well, you get what you pay for. i visited the school and was not impressed.

  • Wilshire Private School's principal has just resigned. This is the second principal in 4 months. The school is a has been and needs to close and start all over again with an experienced principal who knows about elementary education and the day to day operations of the school. The school is just existing. The board needs training in fiscal matters as well as educational jargon. They have no teachers there that know how to take a leadership role. The teachers are all like student teachers. The families that remain are families that cannot afford to go any where else or afraid of the unknown. The school had an exceptional faculty last year with the exception of about three teachers that needed to leave. I am hoping that this school gets help from accreditation or an outside sourcing firm quickly. Maybe LAUSD will take it over.

  • Principal and most of the faculty have left the school. New curriculum is Korean based but there is a lot of confusion.
