Whittier Union High School District To Achieve and Maintain Excellence...

Superintendent's Message

August 2020

Dear Whittier Union community,

Earlier this month, we launched the most unconventional and challenging school year to date – remotely welcoming 10,500 students who will learn fundamental skills, engage in rigorous academics and receive a first-class education from our dedicated teachers and staff from the safety of their homes.  
As you have already experienced since classes began on Aug. 12, the 2020-21 school year will look and feel different. However, our commitment to student success across our five award-winning comprehensive high schools, model continuation school, independent study school and transition program, as well as our Adult School, is as strong as ever.
We have built a network of supports and services designed to meet each student’s individual needs and have established a focused instructional program and robust online learning environment that will continue to raise the bar for college- and career-readiness.
Every day, our students are engaging in remote learning, receiving guidance and support every step of the way from a team of educators who are devoted to their success during what is a very challenging time.
I want to thank our certificated and classified staff, administrative leaders and Board of Trustees for their support, dedication and visionary leadership in the face of adversity.
We are grateful to our Whittier Union community for entrusting their children to us and supporting our efforts to build our students into the leaders of tomorrow.

Together, we will persevere.
