I'm very very dissapointed in Whitman. I've had a problem with one teacher, and especially the principal. He doesn't even excuse the child when two adults are having a conversation and blames the child for everything even speaking about his own personal opinion making the child feel belittled, making them out to be a lier and feeling that they have no self esteem.. I've had problems with one parent threatening me as well as their child bulling my child and nothing was done about this issue. As well as catching the teacher pulling my child by his hood to correct him, I've went to the district as well. The principal reused to move my child to another class while saying to me infront of my child that I'm full of excuses and for that reason only, he's refuses to move my child. In the end I had to leave my child in the same class. When I address the bulling it was lead to be my childs fault. I thought the school is suppose to have our children in thier best interest, well they are not, it's their staff who is in their interest. My child WILL NOT BE RETURNING

i am extremely dissapointed in Whitman's staff. my child struggled with what i can only determine as a personality conflict with the teacher. We spoke many times to the teacher who was unwilling to accept any fault in the issue, we spoke to the principal who is uninterested in working with parents, rather he trys to make it the childs fault so that his staff looks good. The lack of communication between staff and parents is frustrating at best and the school is highly unorganized.

At Whitman the students are the number one goal. The school is like a large family. The staff knows every student by name. They are very motivated and encourage the students at all times. Many of the teachers have continued to teach at Whitman for years.
