  • My son started at Whispering Forest in Pre-K, he is now nearing the end of third grade there. It has been a wonderful experience. The teachers were always willing to help & the staff is amazing. The parent involvement and P.T.A. sponsored events are fun and have raised funds to help further programs for the school. My son loves movie night! They have a great aftercare program run by a fantastic woman who is also the head of the cafeteria. The school recently won an award for having healthy lunches for the kids presented by Mrs. Obama! We love this school and will miss it when my son moves on to fourth grade! :)

  • My daughter attended this school and my youngest daughter will start 2010-2011. I am so excited because this is a wonderful school. The teachers are great. Mr. Sacks is a excellent principle. Overall I would recommend Whispering Forest.

  • My kids attended this "wonderland" and this year my granddaughter will attend Pre-K. Mimi and PaPa are as excited as she is--of course, my daughter is just numb, because her "baby" is starting school :0)
