Whittier Elementary School Reviews
My daughter started the year 2 months after the school year began but she has learned so much more and is now at a great level her teacher is great she has high expectations and goes the extra mile for her students to do their best. every parent I have spoken to thinks the same
My child attends kinder-garden he is doing so well he has learned so much and is able to develop his academic skills, mrs. Castillo is a wonderful teacher I could not be happier.
I think Whittier is a great school. The teachers do their best to provide a great learning experience for each and every student. Their Special Day Class (spec ed) is not quite working up to par. But, the staff and faculty sincerely seem to strive to make it better (and it DOES get better) each year.
