Wonderland Honored As National Blue Ribbon School

Wonderland Avenue Elementary has been named a 2016 National Blue Ribbon School, one of only 279 public and 50 private schools in the U.S. to receive the honor.

In a press release from LAUSD, Principal Sean Teer credited the entire school family. “Great things happen at schools when theory and practice intersect. Our school has chosen many high-impact and researched-based practices that help us meet the needs of our students,” Teer said. “I am so proud of the hard work of our students, staff and parents.”

Schools are nominated for the award by their respective state departments of education, and then complete a comprehensive application about school practices.

Wonderland received this prestigious honor due to its Exemplary High Performing status, based on academic success but also on its Readers and Writers Workshops, CGI (Cognitively Guided Instruction) mathematics program, its “Way of Council” program, and its highly acclaimed music, art, gardening and physical education programs.

“Today, one more star in the Los Angeles Unified School District family shines brighter. We are so proud of the Wonderland Elementary family for receiving the Blue Ribbon School honor for their exemplary programs,” School Board President Steve Zimmer said.

“Wonderland Avenue Elementary is a special place for our kids and our parent community. As parents it is our role to support the school with both resources and our time. Many of the programs we have wouldn’t be possible without our parents,” said Alexis Maydew, mother of three students and the school’s PTA president.

Principal Teer will represent Wonderland at an awards ceremony Nov. 7-8 in Washington, D.C., to celebrate the school’s hard-won achievement.
