I love this school. The staff, all of them, are amazing. They truly care about each child and make sure they address their individual needs. My son has a disability, so he has a long list of needs on his IEP. Mrs. Shaw goes above and beyond to push for him getting the best she can find for each specialty he needs help from. I really don't know what we are going to do when he leaves WFAA. He has had amazing teachers, but every teacher I have had interaction with has been truly wonderful, the office staff are so loving and welcoming and the administration, I just can't boast enough about them all. He is thriving educationally, socially, and his self esteem is so strong. The staff expects the kids to do their absolute best and they really are able to pull it out of the kids. You could walk into the school any time and you'd see all smiling faces. Kids really enjoy being there!

My daughter who is now a fifth grader has attend this school since kinder. We love Whitt fine arts academy! The teachers are always supportive and helpful. The staff is also very friendly and make it a point to know who you are. My daughter struggled with reading since kinder. Because of the support of the teachers and parent involvement my daughter is now on the A-B honor roll. My only complaint would be that Whitt only goes up to fifth grade.

This is the best school I have ever been to. My now 7 year old went to PreK here and we ended up moving to Arlington for Kinder, we moved back here half way through 1st grade just to be at Whitt. They have the friendliest staff. They include my other 2 younger children in everything. They know the names of the students and even what class they are in. They always have time to talk to the parents.

This is my son's 6th year attending Whitt, He has been there since the 5th grade. The teachers and staff have always been very helpful. I will really miss the school next year, but I do believe the teachers have fully prepared my son for middle school. Marilyn Sturdivant

My child has gone to this school since 1st grade, she is currently in 4th grade. It definately pays to check out all the teachers and request the one you feel your child is compatible with.

Our school is Ervin C Whitt Elementary, Grand Prairie, Texas. You could never find a better school than ours. It was a new school four years ago. We are blessed with the best Teacher and Staff anywhere. My 5th grader received commended on his task missing two or less, my 3rd grader missed 0-. With the ratio over Texas showing so many children failing its awesome that so many of our children not only passed but got commended. I work for GPISD and would not move my children anywhere. The principle loves each one of these children. It s a committed staff to the education and wellbeing of each of these children. I had a teacher even see one of my children struggling in lower grade and found out she was Dyslexia now she is in MTA program and doing great. Thank you Whitt Elementary for all the fine things you do!

Whitt is an excellent elementary school in a stellar district (GPISD). Whitt teachers and administrators work very hard to engage and enrich the children. They make the parents want to be involved just to be able to be a part of it all, which is a definate plus for the children.
