Wise Temple Elementary School fosters a love of learning through an integrated curriculum designed to meet the needs of each child.
We believe children learn best when exposed to a rigorous academic program in a developmentally appropriate, nurturing environment.
Our curriculum is based on the California State Frameworks and Standards and is reinforced by cutting-edge education research.
Children at Wise are taught to ask questions and draw conclusions, cultivate critical thinking, engage in experimentation and inquiry, and build a foundation of essential academic skills.
Students have the opportunity to participate in a wide variety of programs designed for many different kinds of learners.
Our School is committed to innovation and strives to secure the intellectual, emotional, social, creative, physical, and spiritual growth of each child.
