THIS SCHOOL IS THE WORST the principal does not demonstrat good leadership the staff is rude and the assistant principal is a total nightmare if this is what professional staffing equals up to in the public school system thank goodness there's other options I took a chance trusting them with my child this school year and came back to bite me I'm definetly looking forward to moving on to a better, caring, and professional environment hoping to not ever look back to Whitebluff Elementary
This school is the epitome of why Chatham County schools have a bad name. From the lack of professionalism, concern and care shown to the students, and their ability to carry out the basic duties of their jobs, by the receptionist, principal, vice principal, and school nurse are total failures to the children that they serve. They have lost VERY important paperwork on multiple occasions, gotten angry with me for my concern that they were not adhering to my son's allergy and asthma protocol, fed him things that he is allergic to, and refused treatment as per protocol. The receptionist's lack of professionalism was the least of my concern. It is schools like this that give Chatham County Public Schools a bad name. Also abhorrent behavior towards students from bus drivers at drop off seems to be tolerated from the other teachers and administration. I would seriously advise against placing ANY child here.
A parent's personal experience with a receptionist or other school administrators should not be taken into account when assessing the capability of a public school. White Bluff Elementary has the same problems that any Title I school has. Most of the students at this school live within walking distance of the campus, which is situated in the center of a community that fits into the low income demographic. Most of them are also latch-key kids who return to an empty home after school every day. The redeeming quality of White Bluff Elem. is the initiative its staff and faculty has taken in the past two years to greatly increase student access to after school programs and tutoring sessions.
Terrible school. I too had a bad experience with the receptionist. If the rest of the school staff is as terrible as the principal and receptionist than I would definitely not send my child there. There are plenty of other schools....just don't go to this one.
Are you kidding me? 4 stars? What a JOKE! This school was the worst I have seen down here. The receptionist was mean and completely unwelcoming and I will not send my child there. I had a chance to send my child but just by walking through the front doors and completely being treated horribly I decided to send mine to another school. Don't waste your time.
Our experience with White Bluff has been a nightmare. Academically it is NOT up to par and as a parent I don't even feel welcome there. The principal doesn't seem to care about dealing with any problems. My child spends more time watching TV (movies) at school than she does at home. Some of the staff has been down right rude during drop off and pick up. If my daughter doesn't get into another school next year, I will homeschool her before I send her back to that place.
This is an excellent school, although there could be more extracurricular activities.
