​Principal's Message


Dear Whitford Families,

Welcome to the 2016-2017 school year! I look forward to serving as Whitford's new principal and anticipate a successful year partnering with the staff, students, parents, and our diverse communities to ensure our students receive an outstanding educational experience.​

Whitford has continued to grow over the past few years, and our dedicated staff now serves over 750 students speaking 22 different languages. Whitford strives to provide programs that not only support our students academically, but socially and emotionally. We are proud to offer a challenging educational program, a summa program for our most gifted students, a dual language program where students are becoming bi-literate in both English and Spanish, and three specialized programs that serve students with a variety of needs.  We host after school club opportunities that offer something for everyone. Whitford encourages students to get involved and stay involved. We believe it is important that students have a clear vision and the skills needed to be successful in high school and beyond by the time they exit Whitford.  I will often ask students what they are going to do to make this school, town, or world a better place.

Our staff recognizes the role they play in helping your children reach their full potential, and they do not take the responsibility lightly. We truly believe all students can be successful, and this belief drives the work they do on a daily basis. Parent involvement is vital to your children's success, and we ask that you continue to play an active role in their education.

I am honored to lead such an outstanding school community and eagerly anticipate a rewarding and successful year. Please do not hesitate to contact me with questions, concerns, or input at any time.

Proud to be a Coachmen!

Brian Peerenboom
