Our school is home to approximately 285 students, where educators work with children to help them grow academically, emotionally, and socially. The Whelan community builds together, and educates the whole child through encouragement, creativity, innovation, and personalized learning to meet student needs.

We build on the skills and passions students have at the earliest stages of their educational career, in kindergarten through 5th-grade, setting our children up for success and enthusiasm-fueled instruction. All students at Whelan are respected, heard, appreciated, and engaged.

We’re committed to ensuring our students and families are able to make the most out of these essential elementary years of schooling, an experience that will serve as the first chapter of their educational career and create priceless childhood memories.

A love of lifelong learning begins here.
