This school is a great school. 3 of my children have attended or attend this school and I have been very happy with the teachers,staff, and principal. The principal knows every child by name and that shows me that the children are acknowledge and they take the time to know their students. Teachers work hard and implement the " every child goes to college" motto and this also shows how much they want our children to succeed. The school has great challenges for the kids like perfect attendance & reading challenges with great prizes that the children look forward to. My oldest is an Honor student and I thank West Whittier for that, they really guided him in the right direction. This school has a great leader, principal Dr. Soltero-Ruiz and excellent teachers, they keep you informed and on top of things. They welcome parent involvement and parents can volunteer as much as they want. West Whittier has a great pick up and drop off system which makes it easier and safer for the children. Overall this school is awesome with and awesome staff which has made my family and I proud to be a West Whittier Wildcat. Did I mention the teachers are Great!!!!!

West Whittier is a great school. I went to this school back in the 80's and now my children are students there. The teachers, staff, and the principal are very caring and want the best for the students. The principal knows every students by their first name, which makes our children feel special. Their motto "College Bound" speaks for itself! They have a great transitional K program that one of my daughters attended and it was beneficial as she moved on to other grades.

This school is amazing i remember when i went here i had the best time of my life. I am glad to send my kids to this school they are now well educated and are achieving their goal. Before my kids went to this school they went to phelan, and their grades dropped tremendously. I do not know why phelan is a distinguished school.

My child has been attending West Whittier for 3 years. I feel that the safety of the school is a problem and has always been an issue.Parking is another story! Parent involvement is limited to helping 1hour in class.Our school needs more teachers outside during lunch and recess due to multiple accidents on the play ground.When attending PTA you have to know Spanish or tuff luck.Although there are some good teachers here the over all quality of instructions is poor.I feel my child is not being academically challenged at this school.I also feel that the school has a lot of new young teachers that lack experience needed to teach more active children.As for our Principal I feel that she could do a better job. Overall this is not a school for any child seeking to advance his/her academics.
