It s very important to me where my kids attend school and I always worry in the beginning, but my daughters 3rd grade teacher isn t just a TEACHER she really cares about her student s individual needs and does more than enough to help the students that need the extra push. I would like to thank my daughter s teacher Mrs. Sauter she has really did above and beyond for my daughter. And the front desk staff is awesome, very sweet people, they try their best to get to know and speak to all the parents every chance they can get. The teachers and staff at Mcwhorter are some hard working staff that REALLY actually care about these kid s needs. Thanks so much Mcwhorter!
Great school with excellent teachers and my kids love it. They have really have a challenging academic program. They do lot of extras for kids.
I'm dissatisfied with this school. As a previous student, I would say that they didn't handle bullying situations well at all. They more or less temporarily fixed the issue I had with a student and didn't focus on the fact that, after the fact, I was being tormented by her friends. The curriculum standards weren't quite up to par. I felt the assignments were too much of a cakewalk and I wasn't challenged (in a good way) at all. Most of the time it was review and I felt that my peers were keeping me from learning. The teachers themselves were okay. I believe they were trying, but they didn't really handle the situations with bullying or fixing a class problem all that well. That being said, I'm glad that I've completed my time there and that I'm in a middle school away from my old classmates.
Amazing wonderful School the student to teacher ratio is not great but doable. and they handle it well.
I have a 6th and 4th grader@McWhorter and the teachers that they have both had in the past up until are not just qualified to teach but are very caring and show a lot of concern and committment to their students.Thanks Mrs. Carrol and Suzanne Watson.
I would like to say that I have 2 daughters. One that is in the 2nd grade and one in the 4th grade that are both attending McWhorter Elementary for 2 years now. That is a wonderful district and a great school. They have some really caring teachers that are there to help the children grow and learn and they are not just there to get a paycheck. I like the school so that we have been talking about moving and haven't yet due to the fact that we dont want to take our children out of McWhorter Elementary. I have a son that turned 4 in December and he will also be attending there soon. It is a great place and has a wonderful new look because of the new facility.
I would rate this school an 'F' for failure. The teachers treat the upper levels kids like they are in kindergarten and not about to move up to a higher level. The principle and vice principles need to learn how to deal with kids of this age. They all need re-education themselves, and some psychology classes.
I am a parent of 5 children and all of the kids went to McWhorter. I am very unhappy with the teachers. Often they seem disinterested in the student. There are a few very good teachers and if your lucky your child will be in their class. The principle is one of the best. She has great people skills and the kids really seem to enjoy being around her. The teachers are not good at communicating with the parents.
