    Any student applying to private schools for the next school year should review the following instructions before submitting requests for school records and teacher recommendations. These are two separate requests and are handled separately by Whitman staff.

    Please review the following instructions:

    School Records

    Requests for Academic History, standardized test scores, MS report card(s), attendance, and discipline records should be submitted to the Registrar, Janice Brown in the main office. Please include $5.00 or pay on School Pay for each application requested. This covers the cost of a 9.5” x 12.5” envelope, postage, and copy fee. Be sure to allow time enough to meet your specific school deadline.

    Teacher Recommendations

    Your requests for a teacher recommendation should be addressed to the teacher from whom you require a recommendation. Please provide a standard business sized envelope (addressed to the applicant school with adequate postage to cover at least two ounces.) This is required for each school you are applying. 

    It is also courteous to ask the teachers in advance (via e-mail) if they would be willing to fill out the forms, before dropping the forms off in their mailbox at the school. 

    Please submit requests early. The teachers and staff will process recommendations as time permits during their normal work schedule. We will make every attempt to mail the information from Whitman Middle School by the private schools’ deadline.

    If you need to know when the records were mailed to a particular High School, please attach a postage paid self-addressed postcard that can be mailed at the same time as the records.

    Thank you – Janice Brown, Registrar
