Whittier's principal, Mr. Jai Palmer, is outstanding. There are also wonderful benefits for Whittier students because Whittier is a small school. This small size enables the students and their families to be part of a close community which supports the learning of each individual child.

Whittier has been like a home to us for the past 11 years. All 3 of our children have gone or are still going to this school. The principal and staff care deeply about the students, and it shows. The academic rigor, strict rules, and cultural diversity make for a rich learning environment. Parents are always welcome to volunteer at the school and there is a very active PTA there. We wouldn't send our kids anywhere else!!

I've especially appreciated the way the special education team cares for my child and has been there for him over the years.

There are some amazing educators at this school, hence a two star rating instead of a one star rating. But, the current administration has major problems relating to parents in a constructive, healthy manner - especially parents who raise up concerns.

The principal lacks responsibility of bulling and assaults that happen at the school and on school ground I have been trying to get an incident report from him on a incident that my child was the victim in and he refuses to meet or even get on the phone with me. my child problem has been swept under the rug. So do not approve of this school or the bulling ( physical and emotional) that goes on in this school.
