our daughter has attended Whittier for 2 years and we really like it. The principle, teachers and other staff are great. Do not let other kansas city mo schools color your opinion of Whittier. One piece of advice for any parents of an elementary student in the kc district: request a Teach for America teacher. They are young, energetic, forward thinking, and well educated. Your children will do great with such a teacher.
