We offer a rigorous academic program to include all subject areas. Common Core State Standards guide our curriculum and student learning is challenged on Bloom’s Levels of Cognitive Awareness. Our students are regularly and consistently provided the opportunity to apply real-world applications.
We are academically based with “high expectations” for every Whitman student.

Half Day Schedule
WALKERS: Pike Street Side
All walkers, students who get picked up, and /or dropped off, must use the Pike Street side of the building only.
BUSERS: Auburn Avenue Side
All students who ride the bus will use the Auburn Avenue side of the building only. For Safety reasons, we ask that no walkers ever use this entrance to avoid walking between buses.
All visitors must report to the office. For the safety of all children, parents and visitors are not to remove children from the classroom without visiting the office first. Teachers are not available during the school day to meet with you about your child. Please call the office to make an appointment.
Early check-out is highly discouraged and your child’s attendance record will reflect the absence. Children checked out before school is over miss out on important classroom instruction. All students need to be at school on time and stay the entire day, according to state and school attendance policies.
Last minute dismissal changes: Due to the high volume of phone calls the office receives during the day, dismissal changes or messages left after 3:30 p.m. cannot be guaranteed to reach your child in time. Please plan ahead and inform your child how he/she will be getting home before you send them to school. If there is a change in the normal plan, notify your child’s teacher of any after school dismissal changes in writing.
