Welcome to the website of Whitman Elementary!
Whitman Elementary is a wonderfully unique public school. 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.
Comprehensive learning is provided through homework/practice,
instructional resources, projects, and technology. In addition, Project Excel
and Kirk in the Hills offer after school tutoring to assist Whitman students who
need added academic support. As a part of the district wide intercessions,
students are provided three weeks of extended learning opportunities which
focus on reading and math interventions. During this time students are also
involved in hands-on science activities and extracurricular activities, such as
computers and physical education.
In cooperation with DHS/Pathways, Whitman is committed to involving parents
in student learning. DHS/Pathways hold monthly parent meetings that inform and
support parents with strategies to help students at home.
We are academically based with “high expectations” for every Whitman student.
