Students at the Whittier Union High School District continue to raise the bar for college- and career-readiness, with the latest state data showing more students than ever taking Advanced Placement exams, passing the California High School Exit Exam (CAHSEE) and narrowing the achievement gap.
Santa Fe High School students returned from their summer break to find a new addition to their campus: a new building comprised of three classrooms, a conference room and modern furniture that houses some of the programs and services available for students with Individualized Education Plans (IEPs).
