    "Whitman is a great school with caring teachers who are making a difference in my child. I special love the extra curricular activities school offers, like an Annie's Art School and Music Villa and Heartlight classes. It is a great place where parents and teachers can offer their students a highly motivated learning environment. Thank you Whitman!"

    "Whitman Elementary is a highly diverse kindergarten through sixth grade school. It has a dedicated staff and very caring teachers. It also has an outstanding music program. All students receive one hour a week instruction in grade level standards based music. Third graders get extra music instruction for learning to play recorders. Fifth and sixth grade students receive a second hour each week for instrumental music. Students also have the opportunity to participate in Villa Musica, an after-school instrumental music program for further instruction and practice. The Whitman PTA puts on Family Science and Literacy Nights, Family Movie Nights, a Spring Fiesta, and more. Our school could be made even better if we could bolster parent participation in the PTA and school functions."

    "Whitman Elementary, a great neighborhood school in North Clairemont. I have four children who have attended Whitman. The dedication of the teachers is spectacular and they truly care about each student. For my family, attending a small neighborhood school, where my child can be a stand out student and I am invited to volunteer and be a part of the school community is very important. Whitman is a STEM school, Science, Technology, Engineering and Math the abilities needed in todays world. Whitman also has a Music program, an After School Music enrichment program; Villa Musica and Annie's Art School, a great afterschool program for aspiring artists. The PTA is very active. They hold events such as Science Nights, Family Nights and various community outreach events such as the Spring Fiesta this Friday, April 11th with a Salsa contest.. Whitman also has a Deaf and Hard of Hearing program, which specializes in the Oral DHH program from the age of 3. Overall Whitman is a great neighborhood school, with caring Teachers and staff. If you would like your student to attend a school with caring teachers and be prepared for Middle School, Whitman is the school for you."

    "Don't be fooled by the lower API! This school has such a wide range of students of all learning styles and abilities. Children are bused in from all over the district for their Deaf and Hard of Hearing program it's so good. The principal is one of the most caring I've seen. And the teachers really go all out to help each student with their individual needs! The Kinder teacher, Mrs. Kemp is probably the best Kinder teacher you will EVER meet! Our kids learn more here than in a private school. Small and friendly community, and a staff who really cares about the achievement of the children. Amazing!"
