We miss the last principal, Ms Cabrera, she spent time with kids and parents all the time. She took pride in the teaching staff. She cared about the school and she was available. The teachers are great. I am happy to have my kids taught by strong, caring teachers.
I am so proud of the students and teachers at White Rock Elementary. The DPA test scores (tests students take 3 times a year to show growth) demonstrate growth in ALL areas: English Language Arts, Language Conventions, and Math. Congratulations and keep up the good work!
Excellent leadership by Principal! She takes a stand for her students and her staff. She has lead the school along with the teachers and staff through great improvement. I am so happy my kids have gone through White Rock.
This school lacks a principal who supports her staff, parents and the children. I would like to see a change of management soon before this school falls apart anymore than it has. I m really upset to see that once again White Rock is the lowest school for the STAR student testing. I will be switching my child s school this year.
I am very proud to be a parent that has a child going to White Rock. The staff, including the Principal, is wonderful!
I went to white rock as a child, now today my children are attending. The teachers work so hard to keep our children ad
The teachers and staff are GREAT! All three of my children went there. I am sorry to see the roses and trees go, but it looks good. Unfortunately, the principal leaves a lot to be desired. She does not support her staff and alienates parents and teachers (even though they might not say so). Not sure what the District was thinking, but I don;t think she is the right person for the school. The school gets a % rating because of the teachers and staff, but teh principal needs to go!
White Rock school was a great school when my daughter attented.She was there from 3rd onto 5th grade.The teachers were the best around,my daughter still talks about her teachers that she had there.They left a big impact on my daughter. The programs they had were great.My daughter went to one of the after school programs,they were so good to her.The school would let students know and praise them on their accomplishments that they have made.My daughter participated in track when she was there which she just loves now.They put on alot of school programs for the parents,students would participate in singing and play instruments. I would recommend this school to anyone.My daughter says she wish she was still at White Rock.Everyone there is wonderful.
White Rock is a very caring school, where the well being of children comes first. Children are encouraged to do thier best in every thing they try. There is a terrific after school program available free of charge for any 2nd-6th grader. At White Rcok every child is cared for by every staff member. All are welcome to get involved in various clubs and the school choir. Band is made available to all, with many loaner instruments on hand for those that cannot afford to purchase or rent one. All grad levels have PE. Computers are used in all grades for various subjects. The only draw back to White Rock is the lack of parent involvement. But the staff is working on that too.
White Rock Elementary is thebest kept secret in the District. Yes, it is in a rough neighborhood with some inherent problems, but the teachers are the best in the District. They want to be there and help the kids. I wish more parents would be involved, though. Our PTA is almost non-existent. I would strongly recommend that parents become involved. If they can't volunteer in the classrooms, volunteer to cut things out, donate materials or provide special snacks. The smallest things are appreciated by everyone at the school.
