When we first moved to Santa Rosa, my son attended Steele elem. and had a very hard time, was always getting in trouble for ridiculous reasons and did not have a dedicated teacher. We moved to rincon valley and he began attending whited. I saw the change right away. I spoke with his teacher about the difficulties with Steele ln. And asked her to communicate any issues with me. He has been there for 3 1/2 years now and is doing great, his teachers are great and I couldn't ask for more. My daughter just started kindergarten and loves. She comes home everyday and tells about the new things they learn each day.

This school has helped my children become excellent students! My son struggled with school until we moved here and the school helped me identify his LD. Now he is getting the help he needs as well as the friendships and support it takes to have a positive self image! I LOVE my childrens school!

We love this school! We switched schools in Dec. of last year due to the increase of violence, lack of enrichments, P.E. music, etc. Best choice we made. Staff welcomed us with open arms. Both 4th grade teachers are amazing as well as the principal and office manager. My kids love everything from PE with Sam to having a library again as well as music program. I feel my kids are now challenged academically in this safe nurturing environment .

Both of my children have attended Douglas Whited and I believe the staff and teachers have help with my children's social and academic growth. The teacher's are very committed to the success of their students.

We moved here two years ago and both our kids go to Whited. We love the school: the principal and the teachers are excellent, parents are very involved, they have enrichment and after-school programs, art, PE, a librarian, the atmosphere is caring and nurturing and our kids love being there.

My son's transition was very smooth. A lot easier then I expected. Almost from the very beginning he was coming home and sharing the new lessons he had learned for the day. His favorite day is Tuesday 's when Mrs. Hughes class gets to go to the library.

We came to Whited a few years back and had Mr. Ord and Mrs. Rhodes for K and first grade before we moved again. We loved it! What a kind and nurturing group of teachers Whited has. I would recomend this school to anyone.

We have had two children graduate from Whited and our youngest is still attending. We have been very lucky to have a school as good as Whited available for our children. The teachers and staff do a wonderful job preparing the students for junior high.

My son has attended K and 1st grade and will attend second grade this year. I firmly believe that there is no private school around that could teach my son better than the teachers at Douglas Whited. From our first day it was evident that the teachers have a genuine concern for the children and are not just 'punching a clock.' Whited has first class teachers and a devoted and effective Principal. I would highly recommend this and actually any school in the district.

The teaching staff at Whited is superb, with a great esprit de corps. This particular school, like all public schools in California, has been stripped and gutted financially.
