We were hesitant to go to a DISD public school and figured the obvious choice would be one of the abundant private schools in the neighborhood. I am SO glad we listened to the enthusiastic push by the many people who told us "just give it a try - what coud it hurt?" BEST DECISION EVER.
We LOVE Withers! I grew up in Dallas and attended a private school growing up. Withers has exceeded our expectations as a parent and our kids love it. If you are in the neighborhood, strongly consider sending your kids here.
Withers is a wonderful place to work. My co-workers are dedicated, and the support of the community is amazing. I would like to note that the test scores posted by Greatschools are incorrect. We are a TEA Recognized school with a Reading score of 84%, not 72%. Thank you for your interest in Withers Elementary!
Best Parent involvement Best teachers and Principal. Lot of support from the Latin parents. Best PTA. Great Community
Great stability, leadership and community support. Everyone works toward student success. Its a complete effort.
Great school! Great Teachers! Great Administration! And yes I agree, parent involvement is outstanding. I have never seen a more involved PTA, Dads club, Hispanic Group ever. Such a large parent involvement makes me want to be as active as I can to help out. I proudly take my two daughters there and know that when I drop them off in the morning they are excellent hands. Thank You Withers community for the excellent school.
The principal, teachers and parents work together to make this an extraordinary place for our children.
Experienced teachers, small class sizes, great support groups, dual language program, abundance of extra-cirrucla activities for a public school.
Families. Teachers. Principal. Art and Creativity. Dual Language. Dads' Club. They're green. United Community. Come see it for yourself.... And I forgot to click the frog?!?!?!
School is great because evryone works together as a team. From the principal, to the teachers, to the parents, to the students. Everyone is involved which is great and Iam very happy to be a part of that.
Withers' staff has really helped build the self confidence in my two children that currently attend. With the strong help and drive from the teachers, my 5th grader was able to achieve perfect TAKS test scores and has been accepted to attend a top rated magnet middle school for 6th grade. I know my kindergarten child will follow in the same footsteps with the continuing support of Wither's staff.
The reason I love Harry C. Withers is because it's such an awesome school. The teachers genuinely care for their students. Students here are involved in many activities put on by the teachers themselves. It's again just an awesome school. I wish every child could have a school like this to attend!
Challenging curriculum, high quality teachers, high level of parent involvement, 2 way dual language program
Dual Language program, highly involved principal, teachers, parents and kids
Involved parents and teachers, great principal and unique opportunity for my son to learn a second language.
I have two children in school at Withers and I am extremely happy with the quality of education and level of professionalism and caring of all the teachers and staff. They are in a fantastic dual language program that is such an enrichment to every aspect of their curriculum. They are benefitting more from this program than I ever imagined.
My son is in Pre-K and loves going to school everyday. They are very helpful with any concerns or issues.
