The teachers and princable are really kind and generious. I am an 8th grade student and I can tell you this, you don't need a Private school to get the kind of learning we get here. We have the Highest mcas scores in the city. Sincerely, E.C
the teachers and teacher assistants have a lot of dedication to the school and the students. they put in the extra time needed to support the students because they care.
The Whittier School is like an extended family. Teachers ,parents and students communicating and cooperating in order to help the children be successful.
I love the Sumner G. Whittier School. It has the best teachers. They really make our school a place where learning is fun for the students.
The Sumner G. Whittier school has a lot of heart! With a caring staff and teachers, awesome students, and great parents, it can't be beat!
The students and staff work great together to form a fantastic learning environment!
this school is edgecational ,nice fun students, and u will meet friends have wonderful teachers to help u through the year.
My step-daughter recently immigrated to the U.S. within the last six months. I have been impressed by the school with help in her learning to speak English as a second language. She really enjoys the variety of programs that they offer. I also am pleased that they know my little girl well. They have several programs that are fantastic: For Kids Only; Fast Forward; and a jazz/hip hop dance class she really enjoys. Her teachers Ms. Bergeron & Mrs. Borgonzi have been helpful and have been great with the communication.
My daughter attends the Whittier and although it is listed as a school in need, my child is doing very well, she gets all A's and B's in her report card, in my opinion. The parents should get more involved with their child and their assignments. This will help the students to bo a better job if someone is interested in what they are doing each day. This will also help them to be more responsible for their work. The only thing I think the Whittier should offer is extended programs for parents who work until 5.00 pm.
I am a Mother at the whittier..i don't like the lack of communication of the staff. I did have postiive experiences with the teachers, however communication with students parents of preschool and kindergarten to 1 st grade is really lacking to say the least. I and several other parents have faced serious doubts as far as the nurse and the way they handle mistakes on their part. The women whom works the front office is very unfreindly..and as a parent that is not acceptable, I am thrilled to get my daughter out as we are moving. Good luck to any new parents, I am serious when i say think twice about this school.
Wow! is all I could say about this school! I have been attending this school for almost 7 years and i had never seen such a school be so involved in everything they do. All i am saying is that the last 7 years at this school have been the best i have had in my life. There was some ups and downs but it always got better. We had the proper guidance counseling and were taught from right to wrong. I recommend this school to just about anyone! These have been the best years of my life so why wouldn't they be for your kids? Even though Ill be attending Everett High next year, i just want to say that there will always be a place in my heart for the Sumner G Whittier. (aka Centre) I love the school so much i recommend it to all other parents!
My daughter has attended this school since kindergarden she is now in the 8th grade ,getting ready for high school. I can't say enough about how involved this school is with their students. She has always received excellent grades which partly come from the motivation of these teachers. They really get involved with each child. She is now going to be attending a private all girls high school in the fall. Best of all she is the one who wanted to go there, she was motivated by teachers and staff. Every little bit of positive influence helps. I don't see it very much anymore. Thanks for getiing my child to value her education!
