Whittier Elementary School 5

I have a son that attended Whittier Elementary a long time ago he is now 28 year old. When he was there it was a great school then and that has not changed except it got even GREATER than it was back then. Teachers come and go over the years, but what that school stands for doesn't. That is for the way that school has been ran that helps out for the care those teacher give the children. You have to have a strong teachers to do what they do everyday and it really helps to have a very strong principle like Whittier has in Melanie Nungesser. Now how I know that now is because I have 2 grandson yet again that going to Whittier and one going to being there in a few more years. Mrs. Nungesser and all of the teachers that I have been in contacted with and seeing all of the other teachers that haven't had contact with yet are the most caring, loving and they want what will be best for each and everyone of the children that attend Whittier and even after they leave and move on to middle school and high school they try to keep tabs on them to make sure BEST!

My daughter is in her 3rd year at Whittier Elem. School. I have always heard wonderful things about the staff at Whittier and the children who graduate from Whittier. My daughter is a transfer child. (Our home is out of Whittier school area) I am so pleased that my daughter attends Whittier and she enjoys going to school everyday! The teachers and staff are so friendly, and the loving attention that is given to each child is apparent for everyone to see. I volunteer frequently at the school and enjoy the time spent with students and faculty. The children that attend Whittier are proud, caring, supportive, smart and talented students. The opportunities to learn a musical instrument and/or read music are given. The children are praised for their academic achievements and attendance is applauded by everyone. To be apart of the Whittier team is a privilege and I know that my daughter will have a brighter future for being apart of it!

Whittier is a child centered school. When you walk in the halls you can feel the warm, friendly atmosphere. It's been a Great Expectations Model School the last 10 years. The annual Arts for Small is a tradition like no other. The staff provides hands-on experiences to make learning FUN! Whittier is amazing!

I love this school! My sin attended two years for first and second grade. This school was like a second family to him. It's a tight knit community. It is a Great Expectations model school making the classroom and school wide management absolutely amazing. Children really do learn to love and respect each other. All in all it really is an amazing school.

My daughter's teacher could communicate more with the parents but the over all impression of the school and staff is very good.
