Niche User: Many rumors exist about Whitman Middle School. While most of the stories have sound foundation in truth, they should not define the school. The truth is that Whitman is a school filled with passionate hard working teachers. 95% of the students are well behaved and trying to focus on their education.
Unfortunately a small portion of the student body (5%) control the schools image---the negativity perceived by the community is caused by this vocal minority. There is a small group of unruly students each year who make things difficult for the school as a whole.

Alum: Our 3 kids attended Nysmith from pre-K to 8th grade and it was the best decision of our lives! They never wanted to miss a day of school, because Nysmith knows how to make learning fun. Our kids went on to a great high school (TJ), that was perfect for their math/science/technology interests, and attended their #1 college choices. They were not only ready academically after Nysmith, but they were also happy and confident. The teachers, who are experts and passionate about the subjects they teach, treated the kids with kindness and respect, welcomed their questions, nurtured their curiosity, and helped my kids discover their gifts and abilities - sometimes before they even knew what they were. I highly recommend Nysmith. Or, better yet, don't listen to me...look at their website, see how their alums are doing, schedule a tour and a couple of student visit days for your child. See for yourselves what Nysmith is all about!
