    My children attending school at whitesburg for 3 years we moved and changed there school. I have recently moved back to the area and all 3 of my children attend whitesburgs again. There grades have improved and their overall attitude of school is great once again.

    My son transferred to Whitesburg in the middle of 1st grade. I was very concerned about the move but after talking to the secretary several times and the teacher calling me and speaking to me personally I felt much better. This school is much more disciplined than the school we moved from. He seems to get more one on one and I am very impressed with the school thus far. Everyone is so nice. I call often and am always greeted nicely. Also I go have lunch with my child often. Everyone is great there and I always feel welcome and am encouraged to come back. My son loves his classes and I feel that we are very fortunate to have the chance to attend this school.
