The Wonderful Whittier
“Focus on Student Learning”
We are “all in” to transform Whittier into a destination for innovative urban education. We are dedicated to creating a culture of engagement and personalized learning today, so Whittier Students will become the creators, innovators, and leaders that pave the way to a better world tomorrow. We are passionate about improving the learning and lives of our students. Whittier is a trauma-sensitive school striving to provide a safe and respectful environment that enables students to build caring relationships with adults and peers, self-regulate their emotions and behaviors, and succeed academically, while supporting their physical health and well-being. We are committed and willing to do whatever it takes. Come walk with us on our journey. Our destination is not a place, rather a new way of seeing things.
Whittier staff are committed to these common themes of high performing, hugely diverse schools that have made significant learning gains.
