    Great great great school. Wish I never moved out of state. I may just move back to bring my children back to this wonderful school. Thanks to Mr. Guertal and Mrs. Dye for the great start. We always refer back to your school and class when things here are tough.

    Whipple is the greatest school and a perfect start to a fine education in a wonderful system. Parent involvement is great. I like the feedback and constant flow on information passed on to the parents I always know what is going on. This is my daughter's last year at Whipple and all the teachers have been great! I am looking forward to my son attending Whipple in a couple years!

    Being Perry graduates we know that our kids will receive a top notch education! We couldn't say enough good things about Whipple School! The principal and staff all know the kids by their first names and are firm yet caring and compassionate. The parent involvement/PTO are not like any other school ~ they are #1!! There are always great things happening at Whipple! What they learn in Art class are phenomenal and the music shows they perform in are always excellent! KUDOS to the staff at Whipple Heights Elementary School!

    We are preparing to move to a new home but have found it difficult to find a school as beneficial as Whipple. As a Perry graduate I appreciate the education my son is receiving. No amount of money can replace the high level of quality education he receives here.

    It is an awesome school with teachers that actually care about teaching.

    Although my child has moved on to middle school she could not have received a better start to her academic career than what she obtained at Whipple Heights. Throughout her years there all of the staff were very caring and put forth extra effort to help her succeed. By the end of her time at Whipple everyone was like a family member.
