The Whittier Union High School District would like to share a concern with our families about a mobile application (app) called “Ogle”.

Students and others are able to do this anonymously and without censorship.

  • Whittier Union Standout Student Receives Early Acceptance to Harvard University

    When California High School senior Lauren Anderson opened a letter from Harvard University, she was on the school’s track preparing for practice. Only two words – “congratulations” and “accepted” – sunk in before she ran across the field to her coach. During what she described as a surreal moment, Anderson’s track and field coach read the letter for her, which stated she was accepted to the Ivy League school for the 2017-18 academic year as part of its early admission program. Only 14.5 percent of early applicants – or 938 out of 6,473 students – were admitted to Harvard’s class of 2021. The overall acceptance rate is 5.4 percent.

  • Santa Fe High ‘Make A Difference’ Baseball Game Brings Athletes, Special Needs Students Together

    Wearing batting helmets and fielders’ mitts, students in the special education program at Santa Fe High School swung their bats, ran bases and fielded their positions in a baseball game as part of the third annual Make A Difference (M.A.D.) game – a cheerful event organized by student-athletes and the school’s Associated Student Body. Guided and assisted by the student-athletes, dozens of students wearing commemorative M.A.D. T-shirts had their names announced over a loud-speaker as they approached the field, with friends and family cheering them on in the stands.
