I have taught as a substitute teacher at over a dozen elementary schools for Saint Lucie County, and have taught at this school many times, for all different grade levels. The children are well behaved, and the atmosphere is very pleasant. It was always a pleasure to pick up a job call for White City.
White City Elementary's A rating is far from thr truth. The 2010 administration does not care about their students well being. All they care about is their scores at the end of the year. I would not send my children to this school.
I believe that white city is an exceptional school. Ms. DK is a wonderful principal. She is accessable when ever the need arises. THe extracurricular actiities are such to pull the best from each student. My son loves being part of the Tech Team (computer club). All parents lend to the school in one way or another. The academic standards of this school are excellent.
I have two children enrolled at White City Elementary.I am very suprised to see the 'scoring' used in judging the schools.I urge parents to speak with other parents whom have children enrolled in the school instead of taking heed to the scores listed on the previos page. White City Elementary is a small school with a caring, yet no-nonsence prinipal that makes it her bussiness to learn parents names,send personal thank-yous and yet still run a tight ship.I have been very proud to be part of the White City 'family' and I ask parents of other schools if they feel that teaching values such as team work(used in the reading buddy programs)and creativity(expressed when taking part in the Wild Cat Writer program)are important to their children's development or what the absenteeism percentage is at a school.Again, as a parent with children in this school for four years now,I couldn't be happier with this school.
