School History

In the 1850’s, two Wunderlich brothers, Peter and Jost, came to Texas from Germany. In 1861, Peter was granted title to 577 acres, and the two brothers were joined by their sister, Katherina Wunderlich Hassler and her husband, Wilhem. Peter and his wife, Katherina née Hofius, had six children. Their descendants continued to farm the land for more than 100 years. In the early 1870s, Jost Wunderlich bought 100 acres of land on the west side of Kuykendahl Road, between Spring-Cypress and Rhodes Road. Bridgestone West subdivision is on this land today.

Parent Involvement

Wunderlich Intermediate welcomes the support of parents and the community by encouraging volunteering within the school. There are many opportunities to become involved at Wunderlich, during and after school hours, with both small and larger commitments of time. Jobs range from a single hour of donated time to recurring and/ or longer term volunteer positions. Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) promotes the team approach to strengthening the school and community. Wunderlich PTO volunteers help in the clinic and library, assist counselors, provide sporting event concessions, school hospitality, teacher appreciation, special student events and activities, fundraising, etc. The PTO also enhances students’ experience by raising money to fund everything from student incentive programs, school and classroom equipment, teacher appreciation and direct financial donations to the school.

Core Curriculum

Wunderlich staff believes in building a strong foundation of trust with students; therefore, commit to capturing kid’s hearts and continue to build lifelong learners. This is acheived through open communication, which is an integral part of the core curriculum. Teachers communicate by creating their own school webpage to provide information for their students. Furthermore students may look for their teachers name by subject and follow the website to gain valuable information about each class they are enrolled in. Wunderlich follows alongside the district curriculum for basic instruction, which is listed as follows:

English Language Arts (ELA)

ELA instruction at the intermediate school expands and develops reading and writing skills that are introduced in elementary school. Writing and reading are the core units of study in all three grade levels. Students are taught to write for various audiences, purposes, and modes; grammar skills; and practice techniques in spelling, word usage, punctuation, capitalization, and handwriting. In reading, students apply learned reading skills in both fiction and nonfiction reading selections. The study of literature also increases in intermediate school.

Math

At the intermediate level, students build a foundation of understandings in number, operation, and quantitative reasoning; patterns, relationships, and algebraic thinking; geometry and spatial reasoning; measurement; and probability and statistics.

Science

At the intermediate level students learn science skills and learn to identify components of the solar system including the sun, planets, moon, and asteroids; systems of the human body; and relationship between force and motion.

Social Studies

In grades K-12, students build a foundation in history, geography, economics, government, citizenship, culture, science, technology and society, and social studies skills. The content, as appropriate for the grade level or course, enables students to understand the importance of patriotism, function in a free enterprise society, and appreciate the basic democratic values of our state and nation.
