Whitson is an excellent public school. Principal administration and teachers are very committed to excellence and challenging students. We transferred into Whitson and feel very blessed that we had this option. The school seems like a large family everyone is open and very diverse. The PTO and school work very well together working for best solution for school and students. There are lots of activities for kids to get involved in such as Spelling Bee Math Bee Geography Bee Dance Club and Running Club just to name a few. My daughter says this is the best school she has attended and she has been in a catholic school as well as another 501 School. Whitson Rocks! I'm sorry she will be moving on to middle school but I can hope we have the same type of experience! More schools should be modeled after Whitson and all parents should be involved in their child s education.
