Whitehall Preparatory And Fitness Academy5

My son attends Whitehall preparatory and fitness academy, he is in the 1st grade and i must say he has progressed so much now that he attends this school. The teachers are great very helpful and show so much care for their students and their education. The best thing about this school besides the teachers, principal, and office managers is their after school programs for those students who need the extra one on one help teachers take the extra time to stay after school to help students. I haven't had any problems or issues with this school and or with any teachers and most importantly my son loves his school and he is getting the education he needs, this is why i rate this school as a five star school.
My grandson attends this school and for this school year the environment is very negative, non engaging and the staff need training. He is 5 years old in Kindergarten and there are so many events from 5 year olds changing clothes for gym and coming home with other children's shoes and clothes that are not up to the quality of his clothing to him getting suspended multiple times for things he has been taught by the environment he's involved in within the school. I would NOT suggest any young children attending this school where the teacher sits a 5 year old in the corner facing the wall in a room where there are no windows for 2 months. And if the social worker observed this and allowed it shame on them. I would like to know where they received their credentials. Not a positive or healthy environment for a 5 year old.
An AMAZING school!!! Under Mr. Young's leadership, this school has transformed into an institution where my child can learn and excel. The teachers are spectacular, and give my child what she needs and so much more! Above and beyond!!!
My 1st grader was a first time student here in 2008. He is doing the same work at the end of the year as he was at the begining of the year. He is also not up to par with the work he was doing in K. He spent K. at Millenium Community School. They were in transition to a new building. Now that the building is complete, he will go back and get the education he deserves. I would not recomment this school to anyone.
My son is going into 2nd grade, The parent and teacher relationship is great. My son's teacher was very involved. I cannot say very much for the principal Mr. Mohannon. I am looking forward to them telling me that they have found another principal that is more involved with the students.
My daughter started at WPFA halfway through the year in third grade. She's now in fifth grade and we love the school. When we moved in Columbus, I was so upset by the fact that I thought she was going to have to attend Columbus Public Schools. I was thankful for WPFA. My daughter receives instruction in Martial Arts, Tennis, Soccer, Etc. She gets to participate in the Tennis Competition every year too! I have definitely seen an improvement in her grades since she's been enrolled at WPFA too. I think it's a great school and I wouldn't send her to any other school.
