The leadership of AJ Whittenberg is stellar! They hire the best teachers. When the school opened they "stole" some of the best teachers from other schools in the district. It is a STEM school and their use of technology in teaching is impressive. AJ Whittenberg students have been called "the littlest engineers" in the state. It is a school of choice so parental involvement is high. (You have to care a lot about your student's education to go through the admissions process.) Next year students will be selected by lottery.
Potential is stifled by the leadership. Great teachers will only last so long and before you know it, it will be a school that 'could have been great".
We are not zoned for this school so it is a school choice for us. The teachers for the most part are top notch! The principal does a phenomenal job hiring. The curriculum is amazing, the things that these children get to learn at this age never ceases to amaze me. This school has a ton of support from outside businesses which help fund all of the amazing opportunities presented. If you have the opportunity to attend this school I highly recommend it!!
