We have loved being a part of the Whitesburg family the past three years! Whitesburg has a fantastic diversity of students, passionate teachers, and committed administrators. Thankful to be a part of this special community!
We almost sent our first grader to WCA and last minute change our minds and I'm glad we did! She is learning at a fast pace and is very happy. Amelia Sutton is our teacher and she is AWESOME! Brad Scott is a WONDERFUL principal! My only complaint is the lunchroom staff is grumpy. If you live in the neighborhood and are currently attending a private school I would say consider supporting your public school because it takes a whole community to raise our children. Proud WES parent.
Whitesburg is undergoing great changes this year, and next year will have a new school building with wonderful opportunities and state of the art facilities for the kids. There are a lot of new staff, including the principal and vice principals, and the PTA works hard to include parents and volunteers in every aspect of their child's education. This is a school with so much to offer, and if you contact them for a tour or just to chat about information, they will accommodate you.
I see significant improvements in the school organization and parent involvement this year. The principal, Mrs. Little is on a mission of making the school best in the region :). There is much improved parent-teacher and principal- parent communication. Teachers are working very hard to help children grow academically while introducing modern technology in their classrooms. Way to go!
We love Whitesburg school! The staff is amazing and their is great support by Whitesburg PTA and families. I feel like my kids are getting a very good education and seem to love what they are learning. We couldn't be more pleased.
Currently, the new principal Mrs. Little is running the school like a prison ward. Some of the teachers are nice and do their job. While others, don't inform you of anything until your child's report comes out. By that time it's too late to try and rectify any issues. The kids have a pass now in order to use the restroom. However, there are only 5 lines on this pass. Once those lines are filled the kids are NOT allowed to use the restroom. The only way they can is if they PURCHASE a new pass or have to wait until the next quarter to get a new one. I dont know about you but i find this to be foolish and unacceptable. Using the restroom isn't a special treat, it's a right. It seems to me that this principal is more worried about numbers. Several parents are disgruntled by her "rules and regulations". She is a dictator. I as well as other parents will pull their child out this coming year. Which is unfortunate because Whitesburg is a nice school overall.
