Hundreds of students from Whittier Union’s three AVID schools celebrated an important next step toward achieving their academic pursuits during College Signing Day on April 26, establishing their commitment to continue their education at a university, community college, the military or vocational school. Clad in college apparel and smiling ear-to-ear, Titans, Chiefs and Cardinals from Pioneer, Santa Fe and Whittier high schools signed banners of the colleges and universities they will attend in the fall, inspiring crowds of cheering underclassmen.
The new California School Dashboard – a tool that evaluates district, school and student performance – was released March 15 for a statewide field test, providing Whittier Union families and educators a glimpse of the new accountability and improvement system before its official release in fall 2017.

Whittier Union in September hosted its annual District College Fair, attracting hundreds of students and their parents to the California High School campus, where they met with dozens of college representatives and learned how to prepare for college.
