Whitaker Elementary Ratings & Reviews

October 24, 2017 Submitted by a parent
My son has attended Whitaker for Kindergarten and is currently in first grade. His teachers have been outstanding. There is a strong focus on social skills as much as academic skills. The PTA is strong and very involved. I would highly recommend this school.

I was told not to teach my son so that it was easier for the teacher to handle the classroom. They also would not give him any more challenging math work even though he is at least a grade level above in math. Not impressed to be rated so high. His Kindergarten teacher was unprofessional and did not communicate well. The principal seems to be sharp and in control.

Our son attended first and second grade at Whitaker. His teachers were simply wonderful. They developed a great connection with the students and showed a clear commitment to providing the best educational experience possible. Our son found the school atmosphere to be fun, warm and supportive -- and academically challenging. The school as a whole is also run extremely well. Interactions with teachers and the school's administration were always positive and professional.

I am a previous student of this school and my advice to you is do not send you child here if they have learning disabilities. 98% of the teachers do not care about your child only test scores. Also they do not understand learning disabilities I have ADHD and dyslexia, they said that I would never be above a C student and would never learn a language or play an instrument. After they told my mom this they gave up on me. I switched to one of the top private schools in NC and am proud to say that my GPA is a 3.9 and I play the violin and take Latin. If your child is a "normal" learner than it is good school for them

I had two children go through this school. I am also a teacher so I know both sides of the coin so to speak. The state sets the curriculum and the teachers/schools are required to follow it. I think it is interesting that the one parent mentioned teaching to the test. In actuality, the test is on the material that is taught. It is also important to remember that when you are looking for a "good" school most of the time you look at the state report card's evaluation of the school in question. A major part of the state evaluation is the test results that a school earns. I haven't met many parents who want to enroll their children in a school with low test scores. This school is a good one and the teachers do care. Every child won't love every teacher that they have in this school or any school that they attend-- nor will the parents. It is important to remember that that is life too. Part of the school experience is learning to adjust to all different situations as well as acquiring "book" knowledge. It's important we help our children learn this lesson as well as the standard course of study or core curriculum material.
