    "The IB/Dual Language Magnet alone is impressive. My daughter is in kinder. She already reads in Spanish at the 1st grade level and it is only the middle of the year. She participates in the afterschool program, which in kinder means cooking, recess, photography, music and always homework assistance. The school holds concerts and has a soccer team (Go COLTS!). The PTO and APTT meetings are always in both English and Spanish and very useful. Teachers teach core values and this creates a respectful and positive environment. The teachers there are so hard working. Also, we live very far away from Wharton, but because it is a magnet, my girl gets bussing for free. The bus situation is very safe - there are only two other kids on her stop. I'm on a cellphone basis with her bus driver, which eases my helicopter parenting tendencies!"

    "The school staff, Ms. Jennifer Day the Principal, Ms. Katy Perez, Ms. Pat Selin are all simply wonderful. Our son was in 2013 - 14 kindergarten class at this school and then we had to move to Wisconsin unexpectedly. During the time he was in school and even when he left we were guided and taken care of nicely! Lots ofgood advice was given by the principal and his class teacher Ms. Katy. Thanks to all of that. And I really appreciate Ms. Katy's never ending optimism with the kids. I also liked their teaching methods. It is a great school!! Thanks to one and all Abhi"

    "Wharton is below average by not having a nurse on campus.If you get sick they call your parents as you lay on a portable bed all the previous sick people have laid on.You are going to expect eating "food" that is almost as good as toy food.When you get to middle school you must do 20 or so community service hours"free labor".But at least you wont have problems with classmates, and as for the teachers about 1/5 are good. The teaching is "ok" you have advanced placement classes in middle school.Spanish: you memorize more than you learn even though you were supposed to learn most in 4th grade where it was almost completely skipped as was the case for our cursive learning in 3rd."
