    White side is not a good school. The teachers are too hard to work with. They are always trying to medicate students with the purpose of receiving additional funding from the government. They treat minority children poorly. I would hate to be a parent of a minority child attending this school.

    We wrestled over whether to send our son to a private school or to this well reviewed public school that we were districted for. We have never been so happy with our decision. They have a wonderful staff. They are so friendly and seem truly concerned about the welfare of the students. The principal is the best! I have never seen a principal so actively and passionately involved in the daily activies of the school.

    This is an awesome school! We moved to Lubbock from out of town and our girls have fit right in. We love all the teachers and the principal is awesome.
