Wonderland Elementary, a 500-student campus in the Hollywood Hills, has been named a National Blue Ribbon School in recognition of its outstanding academic performance.
Home to both a traditional school and a gifted/high-ability magnet, Wonderland is one of 279 public and 50 private elementary schools to receive the prestigious honor from the U.S. Department of Education.
“Great things happen at schools when theory and practice intersect,” Principal Sean Teer said. “Our school has chosen many high-impact and research-based practices that help us meet the needs of our students. I am so proud of the hard work of our students, staff and parents.”
Wonderland Elementary has implemented a new math program called Cognitively Guided Instruction that encourages students to create their own problem-solving strategies. They also participate in a Reading and Writing Workshop, which supports the development of literacy and language. In addition, a “Way of Council” program weaves social and emotional development into all aspects of the curriculum.
