Welcome to the 2016-17 School Year!

WSD made history last September when we opened the first Vietnamese Dual Language Immersion Academy in the state of California.  Following the spectacular success of that program, we are proud to be opening a Spanish Dual Language Immersion Academy for preschool and kindergarten students this year.  Dual language immersion programs are among the most impressive forms of education currently being offered in the United States. Students who participate in these programs exhibit grade level academic mastery, well-developed language and literacy skills in two languages, and cross-cultural competence.

WSD is at the forefront of the digital age and we are proud that we have 1:1 technology devices for every student in 2nd through 8th grade.  Technology is integrated throughout our instruction as we promote 21st century learning skills.  We have been using Haiku, Google Apps and Discovery Education for the past two years and last year we introduced a dynamic program called i4 Blended Learning.  The i4 initiative stands for inspire, innovate, implement and impact.  We are very excited about the amazing learning opportunities and support that our technology initiatives are providing for all staff and students.

All classrooms in our District reflect an interactive and blended learning environment that includes: 1:1 technology devices, CA Common Core State Standards-aligned content, and a balanced educational program. We offer music, arts, and physical education to all students and we are committed to providing every student with an innovative, high quality education in a safe and caring environment. Our teachers, administrators and classified staff work together to engage our students in meaningful lessons, activities, and events that support our educational goal of helping all student reach their fullest potential.  We are “Building Tomorrow’s Leaders Today!”
