My daughter has been attending Wilshire Private School for now over 2 years, She loves the family atmosphere and all the teachers and staff. The students (K-6) get along well together. She loves, and I love the fact that the class rooms have very few students each. That to me means her teachers can give her all the indivual attention she may need. Incorporated in the daily lesson plan are two language classes (Korean & Spanish), art and music. That's something you can't find in other school.

If you have read something negative in a review about the school, it was probably written prior to 2008. Try Wilshire Private School! It is getting high praises from all the parents and students currently attending.

This school is a joke! They had 6 heads of schools in 9 years and now the 2nd grade teacher with nooooooo administrative skills, who was about to be fired last year herself for parent complaints is now principal. They obviously couldn't find anyone else. It should close! There is no loyalty, most teachers are first year teachers and each class has about 5 students. The after school program supervisor has a restraining order out against her and should not work with kids and the building has a lot of safety and code violations. If you have any sense don't let the cheap tuition and phony smiles fool you. Run fast......

I had one daughter to attend Wilshire School for three years and was unhappy with the constant turn over of administrative leadership. The school had three heads of school while my daughter was there. There was an excellent Assistant Head that worked very well with my daughter and the school. When I came to see her for fall enrollment to enroll my neighbors triplets for K.I had heard that she was no longer there. The school now has an inexperienced principal that teaches and is a big talker and thats it. Cheap labor. They also have all out of the college 1st year teachers with no experience. Cheap labor. At the expense of our kids this is what they do. Now, there were two teachers that needed to leave. However, don't throw out the bath water with the baby. The enrollment has dropped tremendously over the past three years. I think the school has ill-informed board members that do not know what they are doing. Hopefully, this school will close for the better. Wake up people!

The school went through major changes over the summer including new head of school and new board members. They are taking bold actions to go above and beyond failed American education system. For example, the math curriculum will be based on hybrid of Singapore and Korean math, and Language Arts will be supplemented by an innovative reading program called Reading Town that is being used over many different countries. If you have ever been disappointed by the conventional education system, it is worth finding out what they are all about.

I've sent my kids to Wilshire School for many years and have seen the changes that have happened. The current changes are some of the most dramatic and inspirational changes met to date. The Principal may be an academic celebrity in Mathematics while he chaired the dept in UC Berkley for 10 years but his administrative ability is not limited to just Mathematics. He truly believes in children and their ability to rise up to any challenges given to them. Wilshire School's teachers are not just care givers for kids but are true scholars that have achieved academic success at the highest levels. I believe the changes to Wilshire School are some of the most positive things that have been done in years. I believe these changes will propel the school into the upper echelon of elementary schools not only in this region but nationally. Wilshire School is a school created to serve the community in and around Korea Town. Motivation to provide a top rate education is sourced from their desire to help the surrounding community. This is a key differentiator from other private schools. I'm very proud of Wilshire Private School and would recommend it to anyone who wants to challenge their kids to reach greater heights.

The school has totally changed. It is very chaotic with a new principal that only knows math. They also have two parents that know nothing about running a school in charge of the school as well. They have all new teachers from k-6 grade. The k,1,2 teachers remained. I have twin boys and I was interested in enrolling until I saw all of the congusion and heard that the top teachers in the upper grades would no longer be there. What are they thinking? The tuition is reasonable and I can see why. The curriculum is not great either. I will just pay more and go down the street to another independent private school.

The School has totally changed since the Head of School and most of the staff has left. It's very chaotic now. They appear to be setting up an all-Korean curriculum.

Wilshire Private School has been selected for the 2008 Best of Los Angeles Award in the Private & Parochial Schools category by the USLBA.

WPS is definitely the best private school in LA and well-deserving of the award.

This school was listed in Whitney's guide as a "hidden Jewel" in Los Angeles. Wilshire Private School is a top ranked academy with small classes, wonderful children, and award winning teachers. You won't find a better school anywhere!
