I have 3 kids that go to Whitehall Elementary. My family has been apart of this school since 2011. So far I have loved every single one of my kids teachers and even a few of the other teachers I got to know along the way. I have never had a problem with anyone at this school UNTIL THIS YEAR! There was a teacher that I witnessed getting way out of line with the students. She was screaming at them and scaring them. When I asked why she was doing that she proceeded to start yelling at me! When I called the principal to report a complaint she responded with "well I have never had a complaint for that teacher before". I was completely dissatisfied with her response and she seemed like she couldn't care less. The principal at this school is very rude and talks condescending. She doesn't care and I honestly don't understand how she is even a principal. Also the school secretary is always very rude and always in a bad mood! I'm not really happy with the district all around.

Whitehall elemantary school is the best school there. i went there myself. the teachers help you all along the way.
I am not satisfiedwith the way the principal runs the school she does not care about the individual child you cannot go to her with any concerns you may have . She is very unprofessional an has an attitude that you would not normally expect from a principal . the school is definitely in need of a new principal someone who cares about the children and the parents concerns.
I am not happy with Whitehall elem. school. Some teachers do thier job but others no. They have to deal with more bad issues then just teaching. I am taking my child out of this school. Paul Fly school is so much better. My friends kids go there. I wouldn't send my student at Whitehall Elem. School.
I went to Whitehall kindergarten-4th. I loved it! I really feel as if they prepare you. A lot so in Math. The teachers were very nice and helpful. Of course there will always be students who ruin the rep. or are just bad plants. I truly love this school and I will be sending my baby brother there!
The faculty and staff are absolutely wonderful and extremely caring. My daughter loves the school and her fellow students. She is advanced and the teachers have always challenged her academically. The resources there are also excellent and readily available. I am thrilled to have my child attend WES.
My experience with Whitehall was excellent. My son began in the autistic support program for kindergarten and his teacher went above and beyond in helping him adjust to school. Her expertise in the area of autism allowed her to make my son's experience overwhelmingly positive. The teachers and principal were wonderfully accepting and tolerant of my son's and other student's special needs. There were many unique programs offered that allowed my child to be included in a typical classroom envrionment while still being supported through a special curriculum. In the typical classroom I found the teacher to be in full control of her classroom and students with a great deal of respect paid towards one another. Her class responded to her direction and she was able to accomplish all of my son's learning goals and more! I think this school (and especially its staff) is wonderful!
My daughter is in kindergarten at Whitehall and will not be back there next year. She loved her preschool but now begs me to get her out of Whitehall and send her somewhere else. Far too many kids in there that are out of control. I brought my concerns to the attention of the Principal (and told her what my child told me and what I have seen) and she was irate condescending and completely self involved. She wasn't concerned at all about my child's difficulties. All she cared about was defending the school and saying how great the District is. All I was asking for was help for my child but she continued to avoid the topic while almost yelling over me. If you can send your children somewhere that the Teachers and Principal care more about the kids than they do trying to cover up the schools lousy reputation.
