I believe all in all, this school is very good. The upperclass grade teachers are excellent, especially the science teacher, he is a great asset to our school. HE has written the textbooks the 7th and 8th graders use and has done so for other schools as well, he is very inventive. He is the one that allows kids to utilize cubbies in his class for the enormous amount of books they have to carry. I wholeheartedly agree with the foreign language. This has been ongoing for years. The teacher is very lazy, loves to go on his computer during the day, takes his shoes off, pops in a video to teach a lesson, and the jar of chewed gum in his classroom is appalling.This school has had a very large turnover of very good teachers, music and nurses .On Language Arts grades, the teacher who taught 6th grade LA was moved down to a lower grade in 2011-2012 because she wasn't qualified to teach that level, hence resulting in lower grades in my opinion. Parent involvement has slowed since the change in principles and PTO. Grades 5-8 have to carry a huge load of books all day as well as their lunches. No backpacks allowed during school day, not even a rolling backpack to ease back strain! Hunchbacks

Well from reading all the reviews about this school back in December 2011- March 2012, I felt hopeless by all the negative reviews back then. I bought a home in the beautiful area of Belvidere and was highly skeptical in the beginning of this school that my girls would attend. It took a good six months to a year to adjust as my eldest was way ahead of where hey placed her. The chartered school she attended before usually was head of most schools so I weighed it out and moved forward. I have no issues with the school being biased, lacking, or not willing to address any issues. There is a strong support system with this school and the community in general. It is now 2013 and I have been implanted and welcomed into being involved in my children's updates. Very friendly and well educated teachers ho actually cares. There are Facebook groups as well for the PTO. Excellent school policy, anti bulling, improvements to school property, etc. http://whitetwpsd.org/wtsd/ Saw major improvement with my special needs child. Great program specialized for those most challenged. Very nice principal and staff. Very organized school and still improving. We ALL work together to better our schools!!!!!

This school is terrible. If the housing market didn't collapse, we would have moved out of this town within 6 months. So for anyone thinking of moving here, find another place to raise/educate your children

This school is average at best. My son took Spanish from second to eigth grade and none of the kids new they Spanish they needed to know for High School. There are some good teachers, but the administration is lacking. Any problems that arise they look the other way.

I am a parent of children who are book smart and they are held back and arent afforded oppertunities and I believe that there are not enough programs for the children who are book smart either.... The foreign lagauage program right now is a joke.... K-5 are all learning the exact same thing and none of them know anything...... The administration is laking but I do beleive we have some very good outstanding teachers who try their best and who are very very very good teaches>>>> Bravo to them>>>> You know who you are and I tell you all the time>>> Although they are not afforded the oppertunities to work their programs to the best advantages of the students...

Foreign language program is poor. Music program is poor. Administration lacks leadership and consistency.

School definately plays favorites and all kids should be afforded an equal education. Focus should be on improving grades for all students not just giving extras for students who are book smart. Students who are in the middle, between special needs and book smart are not given the same opportunities.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
