8 Parent Reviews for Whittier Elementary School

I pulled my daughter out of this school for a couple of really big reasons. First and foremost, the bullying there is horrible.

I took my children out of this school. My kids were not given a chance at a quality education in this school, so now we are a homeschooling family.

There have been changes in leadership ...  Read more

Very poor. Do not consider this school especially if you have a child with special needs as they will be simpley passed through the system. They are very luckey to have just a couple of caring teachers, but administration is all talk. This is not a great school..see test scores.

I wont say it is the best in Waukesha but it sure isn't the worst.. Dr. White loved all of his kids in that school however some of the other teachers really didn't always go the extra step to help the kids out.. :(
