He started in 2012 and it was awful. Staff Do not care, people are rude, extremely overcrowded. My Child learned the ...  Read more

If you want your child to learn math, don't send them to this school. There's a tremendous amount of homeschooling/tutoring in math, because Whitman just doesn't teach it. Students have to "discover" it. The LA department is great. Science is non-existent. Yes, there are good teachers to support, but ...  Read more

I went to this school in 6th and 7th grade (Not 8th grade because I moved) and this is by far the best Middle school I have been in.

I love Whitman! I'm going into the 8th grade. I couldn't ask for a better school. It may not seem like the safest neighborhood, but Mr. Starosky (principle) and all other staff keep everything in order.

This year at Whitman we have a new principal who has shown great pride and commitment to the school. The parents and teachers are very happy with the results. The PTSA parent involvement is growing and parents are excited about what is happeining at the school, from Writers Workshop to CMP3 math.

Our 7th-grader enjoys Whitman and the school is improving under a strong principal. Students are now separated by grade, each with its own counselor, 6th grade students get a taste of all elective programs, overall number of students is declining, teachers are enhancing their skills by working in teams. ...  Read more

Not helpful to twice exceptional kids. My daughter is gifted and learning disabled. This school was not practive in assisting her. The after-school program coordinator is wonderful though.

Very disappointed that they eliminated jazz band this year. Although there is a music program, it has been effectively dismantled in the last few years to give way for more 'academic' subjects or to make room for P.E.
