Unfortunately, I am not pleased with my oldest son's education thus far at Whittemore Elementary. His teacher continues to 'look' for solutions instead of 'teaching.' Much of my concern lies within the evolution of the testing mandates that schools are under. There is way too much pressure for our kids to 'meet' expectations. They should be encouraged to enjoy the wonders of education NOT be made to feel like they are a number or a score. Consequently, this has affected the ability for teachers to teach children because they are so overly concerned about where their class lies on a bar graph.

Profile Completeness


Want to improve this school's profile?

All schools on GreatSchools begin with BASIC completeness, which includes important information like contact details and test scores. It’s up to the school community to take the next steps. As a parent or community member, you can share what you know with other families by writing a review or answering a few questions about what the school offers. As a school leader, you can upload photos, describe school programs, and more with an Official school profile.

The completeness meter moves to INTERMEDIATE, then ADVANCED, and finally HONOR ROLL as you complete the following: 10 or more reviews, at least 1 photo, and 9 program questions parents find helpful.
