Due to the size of the students to staff, students get one an one and learn more and also learn from the staff interaction with each other.

100 % Recommended. Husband was hesitant to send our kids to WPA, due to something different. We are absolutely love 100% happy with our choice. We have two kids that are doing great. Love the 10 - 15 class size, the great teachers and the staff of 3 that cares and knows each student and family. The staff at WPA wants our children to succeed as much as we, as parents, do.

This is the most wonderful school in exsistance! The principal cares for each of his students on an individual level. Most of the teachers are of extreme quality with a few exceptions. The students feel very safe and loved at this school, it truly has a family feel but still maintains the structure & disipline needed for our children. Leslie is blessed to have such an extrodinary place for our young minds to grow!

White Pine is such a wonderful school. It offers so much more family interaction than large schools. The teachers make themselves readily available so I am always aware of my childs progress. White Pine has no tolerance for bullies and it seems whenever I have been at the school that the kids are always getting along with eachother. My child has ADHD and the personal attention he receives has been so helpful. I would highly recommend WPA.

The teachers are closed-minded, and don't show any respect to the students. I wouldn't recommend this school, or any other school in Leslie to anybody who wants their kid to have a healthy social life, or respectable education.

Five years now. There are some absolutely fantastic teachers. There is also a recent feeling of complete complacency at White Pine as we become fixated on NCLB. Is there better?

I am very happy with the education my child is getting at White Pine Academy. Half way through the school year my kindergartener read me the entire Cat in the Hat book Green Eggs and Ham. I was amazed to say the least. The teachers at White Pine Academy are not just doing a job, they are there making a difference for every student.

I love White Pine. My daughter has just blossomed since I transfered her here. The teachers are on top of everything. Many thanks to all of the teachers. And a special thanks to Mrs. Parish and Mrs. Pallone for helping her all the way.

My children have gained so much knowledge and have an importance of education as a basis of their learning experience. The teaching staff know all of the children and are there to make a difference, and it shows in the attitudes of all the children in the school.
