    "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."

    "I just moved to this location and both my kids are attending this school for the 2013/2014 year, and so far I really like it, from my kid's teachers Mr. Rey and Ms. Richardson, the afterschool staff Ms. Mckham, Ms. Harris and the very nice people in the library, and not to forget the office staff like Ms. Vivi . I always get smiles and greetings and a positive motivations they give to the children like Ms. Richardson is always promoting "never say you cant" , very organized. They are always assisting me and giving me the correct information and honetly they go the extra mile which to me that is very important "and a good attitude goes a long way", it is easy to get in contact with them in case I have any questions. I dont need to make appointments because they've been avaliable when I have needed updates about my children, and most important my kids LOVE IT which that make me super happy."

    "I'm writing this review because last year I wrote one regarding the principal & I'd like to say we have a new principal and things seem to be getting more organized and in my opinion they're better. You can really tell the difference in the office personnel since Mrs Suarez has joined the school. I like the changes she's made so far regarding entering /exiting school grounds & healthier choices for snack sales. Hoping they'll have some FCAT tutoring for the children since last year scores weren't great. Especially in 3rd & 5th grade. The teachers at Whigham have always been great & are easy to approach. My children are happy at the school & this year mom is happy , too. :)"
