About this school

Whittier is a healthy school. This health is displayed in how the school staff enroll their OWN children at the school...in how many families move far away, but drive the distance to keep their kids at Whittier...in being able to boast of a virtually 0% staff turnover rate....and in having a staff with an average of 11 years teaching experience. Whittier is a school that subscribes to a no-nonsense nurturing culture and maintains a wide open door for parent involvement.
