Academic Excellence

All students at WISH are held to high standards of academic excellence. Teachers are trained in innovative instructional practices and implement GATE (Gifted and Talented Education) instructional strategies from transitional kindergarten through the 8th grade for all students.
All WISH students are given access to unique academic opportunities, including classes in:
  • STEM
  • Automation and Robotics
  • Engineering
  • Public Policy Development
  • Computer Science and Coding
  • Music, Art, and Physical Education
WISH’s emphasis on academic excellence for every child has resulted in some truly amazing data. It is evident that WISH students are learning and achieving at the highest possible levels. WISH is consistently ranked among the top charter schools in California. Since transitioning to the California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP), WISH students continue to test far above the state average in math and English proficiency.
