Whitehouse ElementaryIn 1926, Whitehouse Elementary School #51 opened its doors. The original building housed five classrooms, a library, and served grades one through eight.Since that time, Whitehouse has grown considerably. Located on the west side, our beautiful campus has strong roots and is growing towards the future. We have a computer lab, TV production lab, a dedicated science lab, and garden areas throughout the campus for students to explore and observe.
A Duval Choice SchoolOur staff is committed to working with students and their families as a team. Whitehouse will continue to be a standards-based school making the transition from Next Generation to the Common Core Standards. Instruction will be conducted using an “I do, We do, You do” model. CHAMPS will frame our routines as we explore reading, writing, science, social studies, art, music, media, and PE. Our planning, discussions, and sessions will focus on enhancing speaking and listening, as well as writing in every subject area.
Strong AcademicsWhitehouse Elementary is an "B" school.
We maintain advance instruction within a classroom setting that meets the needs of diverse learners.We provide extra coaching for writers. Extra tutoring before, after, or during school for students who need clarification of concepts, additional time on tasks, or to master a particular standard.
