Woodcrest Elementary School in Tarzana has been an outstanding experience for my daughter. The best school ever with the most dedicated principal who actually WORKS for your child's best interest. Ms Paglione and all Woodcrest teachers are great educators and individuals. The kids are absolute great learners.Zero tolerance for bullies and a great positive atmosphere for parents, kids, teachers and staff. We love Woodcrest! . would
