The Whitten family bought the property in 1919, and now six generations have lived on the land – with the new generation being among the first group of students for Whittenberg Country School. The 50-plus acres of land stretch from one side of the Reeds Creek Valley to the other.
The current students come from as far as Corning and as close as around the corner, and are a diverse group of boys and girls, but all of them come to school to learn; every day, they are challenged and encouraged to move ahead, both academically and personally.
Whittenberg Country School is a small school with a staff of three full-time teachers and two part-time art-specialist teachers. Besides the teachers, we also have an aide who helps with tuition accounting and many parent aides/helpers who assist in many different ways.
