    "I have had 4 kids at whigham and I have to say the teachers are amazeing. The teachers are always smiling and very friendly, especially Ms. Borgess, Mrs. Lupus, Mrs. Tranthum and Ms. Fernandez. I am grateful to these teachers and many others for making my kids succeed! Ms. Borgess is a great teacher and communicates good with parents. I am guessing that is why I have seen her at the school for many years happy. I hope whigham continues this way. I recommend it for anyone who wants their kdis to be with positive teachers that make it such a great place to learn."

    "The worst school ever! Principles and rude and not helpful. The office stuffs (except one or two) are very unprofessional and rude! The kids have to seat in the basketball court on the cement floor no matter if it's hot, cold or rainy and wait for their teachers to pick the class up!! Do I need to mention that the teachers are always late! Besides are we not teaching our kids that the floor is dirty and unsanitary? The breakfast is a joke! You have the choice of Stale bread or Sugar loaded fruit bars! I have experienced teachers screaming at the kids just to get them to seat down. Just keep in mind our kids are the future! What ever they see and learn now will effect their behavior in the future. I can't wait to change her school!!"

    "It has been great 4 years of my children being in this school. I am so pleased to say this is one of the most friendly schools, in Miami district. Teachers are very professional, friendly, and helpful. Staffs are professional. After changing 2 different charter schools which so called Miami dadeschools A+ schools, I had to change my kids school due to other schools lack of professionalism! and staff. I decided to register my kids in public schools, Which I am so greatful to be in this school now. I will recommend this school. I like to send special thanks to Mrs. Tranthem, Mrs. Reyes, Mrs. Delesdenier , Mrs. Tarboosh , Mrs. Branon, Mrs. Dasilva, Mrs. Horn, and Mrs. Berdick , and many other teachers for wonderful job you have done. Thank you."

    "This school is one of the worst I have ever had to deal with. We recently moved to the area at the begining of the school year and had read all of the negative reviews about this school. Against our better judgement and on the advise of the staff that this school had recently been revamped and to please please give it a chance, we enrolled our son here. Being new to the school disttrict and state, there was no welcome arms from the school. There was no information or advise shares with us on how to make this transition easy on our child. The staff is rude, the teachers teach by intimedation and my chid has come home in tears on many occasions. They greatly lack communication with the parents and it takes an act of congress to set up an appointment to see an administrator. I am so upset that I have taken this to the school board."

    "I'm not pleased with this school at all. Ready to puts my kids out and enrolled them at a private school. Administration is horrendous and so is the office staff. Take you kids out. Thought new administration would change things, but has not. As a matter of fact it's worst."
