Specializing in accelerated classes, ESL, Korean Culture, and Performing Arts in a safe and secure educational environment!
Wilshire Private School prides itself on offering a quality education second to none. We offer a strong academic program designed to pull information from a wide variety of sources in order to fully enhance our academics. As a part of these academics, teachers work to ensure that students keep up, understand, learn, and retain materials. This is done through a series of learning techniques designed to reach both the individual and the group. Wilshire Private School also works towards the development of the “character” of our students. Through a series of programs, projects, and special activities, students, teachers, and parents all work together to create a well- educated, well- rounded, ethically responsible student. Our faculty is dedicated to these goals.
Wilshire Private School was founded in 1985 by the Korean Institute of Southern California for the express purpose of offering a K-6 quality academic education enhanced with courses in the arts. Wilshire Private School was not only founded to serve the Korean Community, but all communities and as such, we welcome students of any cultural background. Our learning community flourishes in a well-located and safe environment conducive to well-rounded educational achievement. Small class size and individualized attention contribute strongly to positive growth among our students. Wilshire Private School has the strong positive support of faculty and parents. Finally, and most importantly, Wilshire Private School has a strong professional administration dedicated to the successes of the Wilshire Private School Community.
Wilshire Private School, in concert with the goals of The Korean Institute of Southern California, provides students with a rigorous and balanced academic and fine arts curriculum while instilling global cultural respect, productive citizenship, and responsible behavior. (This mission statement is currently being reworked by representatives of the Korean community and related WPS parents within the WPS community.)
Our Mission Statement presently encompasses the entire student as he/she acts within a global society as it relates to the Korean culture, as an elite group of students empowered by their educational background destined for success.
Wilshire Private School School is committed to equipping our students with the tools they need for academic, personal and social achievement within a Korean environment.
We enable every student to reach their highest potential by establishing a curriculum that meets or exceeds government standards for education; providing extracurricular programs that develop children’s’ mental, physical and social skills; and partnering with parents and the community to create an environment geared to the success of our students.
