I had my child transferred into this school going into kindergarten and I have loved the support that I have gotten from his teacher and the staff. From what I have seen is it there is an issue with a child all teachers will try to get involved to assist. Now with that said... it is up to us parents to be just as involved. I work in child care myself and I know that it is not easy but as a PARENT I am involved. You have yo be involved some kind of way. We had our kids not the school, staff, or the teachers!!!

I really like the teachers' involvement level, their compromise with the students are very seriously; however the learning process of every child does not depend only on their teachers, the parents involvement is also important in their learning.

I love this school! My son has been here since kindergarten and I have no complaints! The principle is a great dedicated individual as well as the teachers my son has had. I also love the after school program.

Wow!! A school that has 80% of their students at the poverty line, all apartments feeding into their zone (causing a 'revolving door' effect for the students), a population the size of a middle school, uninvolved parents, and a reputation in the district for being a 'tough school' still manages to perform at a 'Recognized' rating. I have never met more dedicated teachers. The teachers aren't there because it's easy, they're there becasue they know these kids really need a difference in their lives. Before you complain about this school, consider what exactly this school is having to deal with that other schools do not. I think they're doing a pretty good job!

I'm sorry but I don't agree with the other review. The personal's apparent disregard to the rate of children being bullied in their school is affecting their students education and educational needs.

McWhorter is a wonderful school. The teachers work hard to bring out the best in the students. Keep up the good work.
