Most teachers seem very involved. My daughter learned an incredible amount in kindergarten and loved learning it. The principal is great and everyone is the office is so helpful & kind. We love this school!

As an active parent at the school I see the daily ins and outs of the school. It has a great community involvement, parents, teachers and students.

Wonderful Staff who are always welcoming to the kids and parents. My daughter was in the school from Pre-K through 5th, loved it and is a 4.0 student. My son is also doing well, again, loves his school. No school is prefect and academically I wish some things were different but with budget cuts, they are doing their best with what they have. No one wants split classes (kids, parents or teachers) and we need text books, but again with lack of funds, the teachers have to improvise and kids have to share books. My son is happy, learning and motivated to go to school... therefore, I am happy and I enjoy helping in the school.

The kindergarten class size was over crowded but the principle did eventually open a 3rd kindergarten class which has been a great difference. I know the district is struggling with financial issues but I still think it's a great school so far. My daughter's teacher and the Principle seem to really care.

Unfortunately Whitmore Bolles has turned out to be a horrible school. Classes are so over crowded that my childs education is suffering. There are 30 kids to 1 teacher in my childs class. The old principal was amazing and ran a wonderful school. The new principal seems to be struggling to say the least. The PTA has only about 5 active members. I was told that because of the school districts financial trouble they are unable to hire teachers or provide teacher assistants or paraprofessionals to help with the large class sizes. What was once a great school turned out to be a huge disappointment.

Whitmore is a great school. You can tell that the teachers and staff really care about the children and their success. I am thrilled that my son is having a great experience. Also, for 2008/2009, we have a new principal, Dr. Chocol. She is just wonderful. It is refreshing to see her outside during the morning with the children and at dismissal. She is very down to earth and easy to talk to. Many thanks.

I love WB. There was so much for the parents to do on a Volunteer bases. I was not involved with the PTA but found that there was so mcuh I could do for the school. They have a wonderful group of staffers and I am very pleased with the security. I love that they have a Deaf Education program there too. How wonderful to have my children learing about deaf people and how to sign!!

Our son attended this school for half a school year. I wasn't not pleased, this school doesn't involve parental involvement on a volunteer bases, I am used to a school that thrives on having parents and welcoming them to come in. I then chose to remove him after several attempts to have some involvement with the school.
