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.
The teachers and staff at Whited create an environment of leadership, excellence and trust. They have the best interest of the students first. In gratitude ...
whited is an excellent school. The teachers are great,my children love there teachers, they love to teach and that makes a huge difference. the principal is by far the greatest principal, he is really there for his students. the staff is whited is by far the best school my children have had the pleasure to attend.
My child is has finished her first year here and she has really enjoyed it. Her teacher is very gifted and patient. The principal does a great job as well as the office staff and science/computer lab. We are very happy with this school overall.
I'm new to this school and I have learned a lot son far.We have assembly on Monday's, which is a lot of fun. Our principal is really nice. And our P.E. coach is super awesome awesome, cool and fun!
This is an outstanding school.. My son loved having Mrs. Hughes as his kindergarten teacher. All the staff is great and the before and after school program is wonderful. My son has learned and excelled greatly from Whited and I recommened it to anyone.
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!
Great school!!Teachers are very nice and willing to help each student.Tom Castagnola is a very hands on Principal he has helped alot with my child with his overall learning.
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.
Whited has excellent, child led learning. The children are always first. Their test scores prove how serious they take their academics. We love them!!
My granddaughter goes there and is very excited about learning. This is a great reflection of the school and their teaching methods.
We have a great school. My kids have been attending this school for 4 years. We have great teachers and support staff. We could not be happier with the education our children are getting!!
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.
Both of our girls transitioned incredibly well from the Montesorri environment to Mrs Hughes' kindergarten class & were astounded by how much & how quickly they were learning! We LOVE this school!
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.
Whited received the California 2008 Distinguished School aware. Well deserved! Great teachers, great staff.
