This is a beautiful, unique school with lots of history located in Historic Williamsburg. Teachers and staff are very caring. My daughter has attended 3rd and 4th grade at this school and she says "This is the best school ever". They make learning fun !The communication between the teachers and the parents is great. This school also offers after school activities for the students on certain days and consistently provides opportunity for advanced education.This school is a 5 star!! Definitely a great school!~!!!

4 years ago, our family moved from Williamsburg to Florida. My son was at MW for Kindergarten and 1 semester of 1st grade. Sadly, Florida schools were all they are rumored to be. What a contrast! Now, we're finally back 'home' and I'm happy my son gets one more year at MW. I couldn't be happier with the attention and kindness we've received through every moment of our re-entry. It's great to be back and my kids love coming to school here! Honestly!

I was sad when i heard the Mrs Miller had moved to a differnt school my daughter really likes her she looked out for her.

My children were enrolled at Matthew Whaley for only a short time before I began to see a difference in their attitudes, their love of school, and their reading abilities. It was amazing to me that so much growth could occur in such a short period of time. I feel as if the school community as a whole engulfed my children with support and high expectations. From the moment we first arrived and met with the office staff and the reading teach for placement (and incredibly detailed feedback for such a short 10 minute assessment) till the end of the year fifth grade graduation experience for my oldest child, we have all as a family, appreciated how lucky we are to be at Matthew Whaley. Partners in Print, an incredibly involved PTA, strong teachers who keep in great communication, super after school programs, building cleanliness....the list goes on and on!

As a teacher at Matthew Whaley, I've been amazed at how much effort the entire staff puts in to make everyone successful - students, student-teachers, new teachers, and each other. Kids are challenged but very well supported as they learn. We use lots of research-based strategies for best practices. Being right next door to Colonial Williamsburg is a plus too!

What a wonderful school! My daughter Brittany went to Matthew Whaley from kindergarten to the first few months of 3rd grade,until we moved. She is now in the 7th grade and still talks about how much she misses this school. The teachers she had were all wonderful and there was always something fun planned for the students. You do not see an elementary school now that offers art, music, computer, etc. for our younger students. It's wonderful! This is the best elementary school around. Thanks, D. North

Being a military family I am always concerned about moving so much with the children. Matthew Whaley has made our children as well as us the parents feel very welcomed. I take my hat off to the staff and principle of Matthew Whaley.
