This is an AWESOME school! I graduated from Whittier Christian HS over a decade ago and thoroughly enjoyed the encouraging and supportive environment. The teachers and staff are excellent. They genuinly care about the students and their families. Quality education isn't cheap, but WCHS is well worth every penny. There is also a considerable amount of financial aid available for families who qualify. I defiantly plan to send all four of my children to this school in the future.

Whittier Christian High School has excellent teachers who take a personal interest in the education of each of their students. The Principal is loved and respected by all. He has an outstanding administration and his Vice Principals are equally loved. The leaders of this school are great role models for the students. This school has academic programs for all kinds of students. The Honors and AP courses are more challenging than all the local high schools. Also offered are Cal State Fullerton classes. Students graduate from WCHS well prepared for college. Whittier Christian offers classes for all types of students. If you are looking for an academically challenging school or looking for a school that will offer help to the struggling student, this is your school. This is not a school for the wealthy or school for the poor, this is a school where all students can excell! There are scholarships for those in need.

Teaching is ok, comparable to public school. Your paying for small classroom sizes and spiritual growth. They push you to send your kids to summer school, getting more money from you. And if your child plays more than one sport, count on spending a few thousand more. Unfortunately it's not a school for the middle class.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.

Oops! We currently do not have any student information for this school. We rely on the state Department of Education, the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), and in some cases school administrators such as registrars and principals for this data.
