About Our School

Whittier School values individual student progress and achievement throughout each year in elementary school by providing a supportive and challenging atmosphere. We provide excellent academic instruction targeted to the needs of each individual child, so that all students have equal opportunity in achieving their potential. We encourage Reading and Mathematics literacy by practice in the classrooms and in the home, and value parent participation throughout our school community.


Whittier Elementary School focuses on developing successful students who will become effective contributors to the community. The school boasts a highly diverse multi-cultural population of students.

  • Whittier is one of three magnet schools for the Extended Learning Program. One class per grade level is enrolled in this program and students are transported from all over the district to attend.
  • All students in grades 3-6 learn to play the piano. We are proud to have Youth Enrichment Foundation teachers who provide this wonderful opportunity for students who would most likely never have this chance.
  • Our fifth-grade students participate in the Ballet West “I Can Do” program, which encourages student progress and success in school.
  • We have established a school-wide behavior management system to encourage all Whittier students to be safe, respectful, and responsible citizens.
