Willow Glen Elementary offers families two outstanding educational programs to choose from: a traditional English-only instructional program or a Two-Way Spanish Bilingual Immersion Program.
Both programs offer a rigorous curriculum based on state-adopted standards in English language arts, math, science, social studies and physical education. The TWBI program offers the same standards in two languages. All students receive classes in Art, Music and Science, third through fifth graders are eligible to participate in after-school classes in Instrumental Music and Choir.
The new Common Core State Standards provide a consistent, clear understanding of what students are expected to learn, so teachers and parents know what they need to do to help them. Click here for more information

Parent volunteers provide our students with hands-on art experiences. The PTA supports field trips, science lessons, and a large bilingual library, which further enrich the students’ understanding of their studies and connections to their community. Everyone thrives in this energetic and fun environment.
