What is Dual Language?

The Wharton Elementary Dual Language philosophy promotes both Spanish and English as languages of equal value. We feel that by placing importance on both languages we are not only preparing our students for the multi-lingual, multicultural world we are living in, but they are also learning the importance and value in respecting other cultures in our increasingly global society.

    Congratulations Wharton!

    The “Children at Risk”, a Houston-based nonprofit organization, has released the results of its 2015 rankings of the area’s public schools, using the most recent data available from TEA.  There are a total of nearly 1,350 campus from the eight-county Houston region.


    The group orders all schools from the highest to the lowest and awarded them letter grades from A+ to F.  Overall, the rankings were based on award 3 indexes: student achievement (60%), socioeconomic performance (20%) and student growth (20%).  


    This year, Wharton’s results are as follows:

    ·         Wharton was ranked an A+ for both elementary and middle school! 

    ·         Our middle school is ranked number 5 in the entire Houston area! 

    ·         Our elementary school ranked number 24 in the entire Houston area!


    This accomplishment is due to our teacher’s hard work and dedication!  Hats off to all of them!  We couldn’t be prouder!
