    "Whitlow is a phenomenal elementary school. The principal, teachers, staff and administration are so dedicated the education of our children and they are involved in every aspect of helping our children learn and thrive in an environment that is best suited for their needs. The principal stays involved with the parents, offering monthly principal "chats" in which she covers a broad range of topics. From what I have heard, Whitlow is a sought after school for teachers because of the principal's leadership qualities. I have not had one bad experience with anyone at this school. It's a warm, welcoming and friendly environment and the children thrive here! Whitlow is also in the process of trying to gain STEM certification, the children have STEM classes as specials and the teachers in all grades incorporate some aspect of STEM each and every day, which the children love! I could not ask for a better school for my children! Great job Whitlow!!"

    "I have a child in kindergarden here. There are 25 kids in her class and 1 full-time teacher. Another teacher comes for half the day, but that is not enough individualized attention for kids that age. Her report cards baffle me, since I know she knows things they claim she doesn't, and the teacher never explains why she drew those conclusions (or talks to us at all, except one 15-minute review all year that was not helpful). My child cares more about her behavior than what she learns. The focus is all about being quiet and putting your head down so you can "move your peg up the board" on the behavior chart and get a reward. They only care about controlling the class, not what is actually learned. She enjoyed going to Goddard School pre-K now she doesn't want to go to school, because it's "boring." She can't even tell me what she has learned at the end of the day, only what she did in gym, art, or science class, which they don't have every day. Despite missing 4 snow days this year, none of them were made up because they "still met the minimum hours" the State requires. They got more funding from the legislature, but I see no extra days added to the 2014-15 calendar."

    "Whitlow Elementary is a wonderful school. i am in 5th grade going into 6th grade. The only reason how i got to middle school is the teachers. The teachers are WONDERFUL and in 4th and 5th grade the students get to change classes. This school is AMAZING."

    "What a GREAT school !! The teachers really care about the students. The school has great test scores. My experience is that the homework is not overly taxing. Some nights more than other - but overall reasonable. The admin is caring and responsive both to students and parents. It's a very program rich school - there are lots of resources to motivate and allow your child to be involved. From art and science fairs to additional help afterschool - this school has it all!!"
