Polish Our Hidden Gem of the Community!

Project GoalAlmost 70 years ago, our beloved Willenberg School became a treasured gem, nestled in a welcoming neighborhood in San Pedro, CA. Our school was designed to welcome students with disabilities, and our halls have witnessed hundreds and hundreds of happy young people, excited to be spending their school days with very caring adults, and friends who share strengths and challenges. Over the years, Willenberg's mission has always been to provide each and every student with the opportunities to reach their highest potential. This mission is never forgotten, and is practiced daily by every adult who serves Willenberg in all capacities. Many students and staff have spent years returning daily to our beloved school. We are a school family, and Willenberg is a home away from home for many. Just like all homes that weather the changing seasons over time, Willenberg has done the same. We are excited and proud to be standing strong and moving forward with amazing new programs and new adventures as we explore the infinite possibilities that the future holds for our students. The hidden gem still shines bright with hope and promise for the future. It is second nature for us to constantly try to find new ways to enhance the daily experience for everyone. We are aware of the many positive effects that new and improved surroundings, both indoors and out, can have on everyone! We feel that when great care is given to our surroundings, those surroundings can help to inspire! We surprised our students this school year with a beautifully redecorated Student Dining Room. Our students love the new look, and great enthusiasm for the project remains all these months later. Our students take pride in maintaining the space and keeping it clean and ready for mealtime and guests. It's our hope to keep this momentum going! As precious a gem that Willenberg is, it can benefit from being polished so it can shine even more. It is our desire to make every moment count by providing a quality education, and a beautiful environment in which to succeed. We welcome you to meet our wonderful students and staff, and see the good things happening at our school. We ask you to support us as we transform our space and polish it and make it more beautiful and bright and full of promise for years to come.
