14 Parent Reviews for Whitman Middle School

Some statements in the other reviews don't reflect my experience. I've never heard that a math teacher or any teacher has screamed at my children who both attended Whitman.

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.

My son started 6th grade this year at Whitman and overall we've been very happy with it. There are many dedicated, hard working staff members, the principal is wonderful, parent involvement is strong and there is a unity in working to make it a great school. It is scheduled to be torn down and rebuilt ...  Read more

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.
