WHITTIER CITY SCHOOL DISTRICT
The Whittier City School District is committed to the learning and development of the whole child. If you are browsing here to explore if the Whittier City School District is the right place for your child or if it’s a school district where you’d like to teach, we would like you to get to know us.
The phrase "Students first, every decision, every day" is the best descriptor of the nature and character of learning and teaching we desire and value in our school community. We strive daily to become a place that meets the needs of students, parents and families by attracting, retaining and supporting our staff to meet the needs of our community.
The Whittier City School District appreciates that parents have entrusted us with the most precious gift they have received, their own children. We view parents as partners in helping children and adolescents to reach their full potential intellectually and socially. We encourage and practice open and regular communication between schools and home so that parents are aware of the progress their children are making.
Among the various links on this website, you will find details on registration and admission for students, employment information, and current details on activities at each of our schools. You’re invited to communicate with us by phone, e-mail, or by visiting in person. I look forward to seeing you as part of the Whittier City School District and welcoming you to our warm and caring family.
Over two thousand years ago the Greek Philosopher Plato described the role of the teacher as to "Find the particular genius of each student." The Whittier City School District believes that all of our students have special talents and we want to encourage and enhance those special abilities.
We hope that this web site will help parents and staff more easily be able to find information on schools, programs and services we offer and help you understand that the Whittier City School District is a special place where we put "Students first, every decision, every day."
