Whittier Elementary has been wonderful for my son, who has had struggles due to ADHD. Every year, (he's in 4th grade now), he has shown amazing improvement, and this is due in part to the exceptional teachers and staff who work with him daily towards success. I am promptly notified of any issues and/or accomplishments my son is having, and have had excellent communication with everyone involved in his school life. It's this perfect team effort with my son that has led to him not only meeting his IEP goals, but to surpass them and literally SOAR above, allowing his IEP to be completed! I feel so grateful for having such a wonderful school for my son, and couldn't be happier. Thank you Whittier!!
Whittier has an amazing atmosphere, geared toward student learning and their success! The staff always makes themselves known in a kind and caring way to students, parents, and even visitors. They help each child be successful and meet their needs by going above and beyond any expectation.
Whittier is a fun place to learn! We have supportive parents and awesome kids who work hard every day! We have after school programs for kids who need extra support. The kids love the therapy dogs that roam the halls! Our PTA is amazing and supportive! We just raised money for new playground equipment!! We have fitness Friday's and the kids exercise to fun music as a whole school for a minute every Friday morning! We have a school wide positive behavior incentive party every 6-8 weeks!! It's a great place to learn!
I have had experience in different school systems and I find the warm ,inviting , caring attitude from everyone!!! Very genuine they truly care and will not let your child / children just slip threw the cracks. They teach ,evaluate , communicate and give the help your child needs. We live this school!!!!
Whittier Elementary has amazing teachers who care about our children's education, but more impotantly, they care about their well being and their emotional needs. I am a very proud parent of two children who love their school and take great pride in telling people about Whittier, their school environment and the amazing teachers and staff.
Whittier Elementary is truly a great school! My son looks forward to going everyday and always comes home with a smile on his face and always proud of what he learned/accomplished that day. All of the staff at Whittier strives on our children's success and main purpose is to teach our children! Lastly I can not say enough how lucky we are to have Mr. Kennney as our principle, he goes above and beyond for our children and also cares so much about his staff! He knows all of the students names, and always remembers something particular about the student, so he always has something to talk to them about!
Whittier is a great school with an amazing staff! The teachers and principal are almost always available for questions or concerns. Whittier curriculum is based on child success and ensuring each child is equipped with any and all means to help them be successful in the classroom.
The staff is exceptional! They truly care for the needs of the students. The principal has a lot of experience and is wonderful with the students. We switched from another school in the district and we couldn't be happier with the change in our child.
Whittier is a great school with caring teachers and an involved principal! I have 3 children that have all gone to Whittier. They continue to thrive and ate well mannered and respectful. Everyone is friendly and inviting whenever I enter the doors. The facilities are clean, safe, and conducive to learning.
