Most horrible school you can send your child to! I went there for 4th grade through 6th grade. Some of the teachers were nice, but thats not the point. The point is that the standards are horrible. When i went to jr. high i was a little far behind then most of the kids. When I told the teacher that I didn't understand, they just told me that I'll figure it out or "your not trying hard enough". I had horrible grades. I didn't think I would EVER pass in any of the class. The school I went to previously, had sooo much better standards and I understood soooo much more! I wished I could have stayed at my previous school. During the Band and Orchestra concerts, the principal has to be given flowers and told thank you and stuff like that. I didn't understand. What does she got to do with the Band and Orchestra. The principal is just completely a bad principal. I didn't like the standards with this school... they're not very good.. I never really got to learn cursive through the school. I would have learned if I NEVER went to the school.

Best school to provide so much curriculmn & instruction not just to their students but to parents for parent involvemnt plus has brought back sports activities for students to be involved & get a good workout to stay in shape & control some of the obesity in the schools.

I had my oldest son @ Whittman for K and then again for the beginning of 1st and his younger bro. for the beg of his K year...After having to switch schools due to family changes my kids continued to beg to go back to Whittman...After experiencing a school in a mid to upperclass economic area in comparison with whittman I believe the dedication and comittment to the students excells at whittman...My boys will be returning to whittman this school year...

I was fortunate enough to be able to do some student teaching at this school. Mrs. Flores, a first grade teacher, is a fantastic teacher. Her students are achieve because of her dedication, commitment, and caring. The staff works well together and really are a team. The principal is supportive and has high standards for her school. The teachers and the students easily meet these high standards. A great place to send your child to school.

Whitman Elementart School provides an excellent academic education with a diverse and supportive learning environment. The teachers and the principal are wonderful. The school believes in literacy and emphasizes daily reading intervention sessions. They support the children and believe education is important to the success of each child. We enjoy Whitman!

At the current time I have two children attending Whitman School. They love going to Whitman and as a parent I am always informed about my children's progress. Whitman School encourages the parents to take active roles in their child's education. And most important I always feel welcomed at my children's schools.
