Average isn't always a good thing but still better than Pauls Valley schools. This is a much smaller school with great emphasis on safety and we loved it the first few years. It sure isn't what it was for my nephew many years ago or when my child began several years ago. As we have moved up in grades I have noticed an increase in favoritism and parents who will speak privately but not stand up for kids being bullied or verbally abused or emotionally neglected by being intentionally left out, all by a teacher. I have been shocked as I watched people overgift teachers to obtain favor for their kids/grandkids and have been advised to do the same! I can't count the private comments and calls I've rec'd in the last two years alone (more and more ppl confide once they see you won't sacrifice the ones before them) . There is an air of "don't talk about it and it doesn't exist". I have seen that speaking up will turn into other parents/teachers shunning and even commenting to the parents with complaints, even family members and friends they have known for years. It often results in further unfair/unkind treatment of the child.

Whitebead is an excellent school. The school is known for it's great teachers & staff. They have high expectations of their staff, students, & parents. I know this very well as I attended 1st-8th grade there & my daughter is currently attending. She was excited yet nervous about her 1st year of school. The staff at Whitebead took her in under their wing & made her first year of school a very memorable experience. I have questioned a lot of my decisions regarding my child but I know I made the right choice when it comes to my daughter's future. Thanks Whitebead staff!

My son went to a larger school in Southern Oklahoma, he struggled on a daily basis with classes, and dreaded going to school. Since being at Whitebead he is a much happier kid in the mornings! The enitre staff at Whitebead has had an impact on his learning. I would recommend this school and staff to anyone.

Wow! What an awesome school. Almost like a private school. My 3 kids attend and my oldest has been there for 10 years. It is a PK-8 school. Test scores are great and the kids are like no other school we've been in. It is like a little family.
