    It's a new day for Whiteley School! Thanks to the wonderful decision to appoint our new principal the future looks great!! What a wonderful atmosphere he has created in the short time he's been in his new role. Outstanding choice for is about time! The teachers now have a strong decisive leader to support and guide them! Go Whiteley!!

    Frank C. Whiteley is recognized as a Blue Ribbon School of Excellence. The school is nestled in Hoffman Estates. It is a wonderful school that has excellent and dedicated teachers providing a quality education to students. This school is committed to the whole child and parent involvement is important too. This school also provides a variety of extracurricular activities and after school programs to promote student growth! I feel very fortunate to have my daughter attend this school.

    I have three children attending or attended this school. Whiteley is one of the best schools around. The teachers talented dedicated and very hard working. The students test score has always been on the best in the state. The Really BAD thing is the District 15 management. They have been slowing transferring in students with rude bad behaviors and kids with special needs into the school. They currently have three dedicated classes and soon will have more. About 30% will require additional assistance and careful watch. I am very concerned about the future of this school. The direction does not look bright.

    The administration is confused at best. I agree with previous comments. Some teachers are great but many are not monitored or taught how to run a classroom properly. The principal buries her head in the sand it is frustrating. I am amazed how many parents are resorting to home schooling after experiencing this school. The PTA is good but too protective of the principal.

    I have found that the administration of this school is below my expectations. the principal is not responsive to my concerns. She seems very arrogant...kind of paternalistic. Her attitude is "my way or the highway." the teacher that my son had seemed adequate but nothing to rave about. My daugthers teacher was a dinosaur with teaching methods that were abhorrent. I would recommend another school in the district or a private school in the area.

    My son is going to preschool at Whiteley. I really like how teacher reacts with kids and the activity they do in the classroom. The teacher really takes time to learn about each child and helps parents with any concern they have about their child. My son had a seperation anxiety and the teacher really helps us in it. Now he enjoys going to school.
