I feel that the teachers are going beyound what is required of them in educating my children. I am pleased with the environment, it is always conducive for learning. My children are being provided the age appropiate educational skills and materials they need. I visit the school often, and every time I am greeted with a smile. My children are blessed to be at a school where their academic needs are being met, safety is top priority, the staff works together, and the principal is making a difference in the school and community.

I think that Whiteville School has gone beyond the call in helping my grandson. They have really helped him a lot and encouraged him to try harder to excel in his grades and to do the very best that he can do. Thanks for all the help.

My three children have gone to school here. Now I have grandchildren here. If you are looking for a school to give your child a well rounded education, this is the place. Children here are not only given academics, but life quality lessons as well. This is one of a very few Blue Ribbon Schools of Excellance in rural West Tennessee.
