The mission of the Whigham School community is to empower all students with the knowledge and skills to think critically and independently. Our students will become productive members of society who are self-motivated to becoming life-long learners. Whigham School provides a variety of rigorous educational programs through the use of engaging and relevant instruction. Whigham maintains high expectations of all students and educators while simultaneously addressing the effective use of multiple talents and intelligences. Whigham School provides an environment that nurtures the social, emotional, and academic growth of every child. The Whigham School team, consisting of parents, community, educators and staff, works together with students to provide a safe and orderly school climate wherein excellence in education is paramount.


             Whigham School is committed to providing a workplace where the viewpoints and talents of every employee and student are valued, welcomed, and appreciated. Our goal is to provide a safe, secure, and nurturing environment where students feel connected to and supported by faculty and staff. 

             Overwhelming evidence shows that parent involvement is a key factor in student success. When parents are involved, students have higher grades, higher test scores, better school attendance, increased motivation, and more self-esteem. When parents sustain their participation in their child’s education at every level, student achievement increases substantially. Our goal at Whigham School is to engage families and connect them to the school. I strongly encourage parents and guardians to get involved in our Parent Teacher Organization (PTO). The objective of PTO is to bring into closer relation the home and the school.

            Once again, I am honored to be the Principal of Whigham School. It’s a special place to so many people in our community. Our goal is to build a foundation for academic success through high academic standards and a safe, nurturing environment. We are a “Tribe of Excellence”.
