    I am a former student of M.S. 246 and I am proud to say so. I am currently a high school graduate and I believe that with all of the great teachers I had while attending this school I wouldnt be where I am today. The treachers cared for and encouraged me to do my best in all that came my way and for that I am thankful! The friends I made ther are lifelong friends who even to this day as we live in seperates states stay in contact with me and the treachers and the [th]ings they have taught me will always be with me. Ilove this school and if given the chance I would most definately go back! --From a former student c/o 2003-- Euphrasia McQueen

    I love this School.I graduated in 2004 and have realized that it offer much more education and program than the High School I attend now.Walt Whitman Middle Schhol has their own broadcasting studio besides great techers. I go to a High school were I study Journalism and only wish they had a studio. I also had a upper advantage on knowing how to writing a resume because I learn to do it Whitman.Every event in this school everyone would attend.It feels like a place truly were education is not only taught but lives and showen in it's teachers and students.

    I love Walt Whitman. I graduated class of 2004 and my experience was amazing. My favorite teachers were Ms.Delauney Mr.Foster Ms.Barrows Mr.Sears Mr.Gooding and Ms.Roche. Walt Whitman is a very good school and it is very dicipline. Students that have a higher average get a chance to work with other students at their level in the magnet program I was once a member of that program and I could tell it is excellent.
