WHITTIER SCHOOL educates the whole child through an integrated interdisciplinary approach. We value all dimensions of a child's development: emotional, physical and intellectual. We respect the diversity of the student body and strive to cultivate a school culture that is grounded in positive ideas.
We seek to provide an educational foundation that prepares students to be active, involved and responsible citizens in the increasingly complex, diverse and technologically sophisticated 21st century.
