ANNOUNCEMENTS:

 

Dear R&D Whitman Academy Community,

 

We had a lovely board meeting last night honoring the board members who have served so well over their terms and welcoming the new board members. I am excited to continue working with such a positive, energetic group.  They are all committed to continuous improvement that impacts students.

 

The seniors had their last school day today. We wish them success in their next endeavors and pray that they will find their God directed path to joy and abundant life.

 

Thank you for all your input on the uniform issue. We have listened to your concerns and comments and have decided to make the transition into uniforms more gradually. Please see the table below to explain how the transition will work from 2016/2-17 to 2017/2018.

Mission: The Roy and Dora Whitman Academy exists to provide quality Christian education in English to Third Culture Kids through creative hands-on-learning and guided opportunities in servant leadership.

Vision: The Roy and Dora Whitman Academy aims to produce well-educated, globally-minded disciples, transformed by the Gospel, with a heart for people’s physical and spiritual needs and the ambition to make a difference in the Kingdom of God.

Classes at Roy and Dora Whitman Academy are held in  a converted 6 story apartment building. Grades 1 and 2 have ground floor access to the sand playground that is equipped with swings and a climbing fort and the large, paved basketball court/play area.   Grades 3 and 4 occupy the second story, grades 5 and 6, the third floor. Classrooms for grades 7-12 are on the 4th-6th floors.  Secondary students have access to the fenced in roof for break times.

Because of the location of the school, physical education classes are held in a local club. Students in grades 3-12 are bused to a private club twice a week for sports activities.   Drama productions are held at a rented theater.

The current premises are at maximum capacity and lack the facilities needed for all the activities the school would like to offer.  Though we have added two additional floors to the original building, further changes are prohibited. We are filling every inch and turning children away for lack of space. Please visit our NEW CAMPUS page to help us raise the funds for a bigger school building.
