    I am a parent with 5 kids attending Whittier and I believe that Whittier is a fantastic school the staff is great and I love that I am able to talk with the staff about issues that may be arising with my kids and the staff is willing to help. Ms. Bennett is the best always willing to help with anything. My child had Ms. Camp in first grade and she was amazing. Mr. Medley is also an amazing teacher and I love how he is a role model for the young boys at Whittier Education Campus. Mr.Woodruff is a gem added to the school with his vibrant energy and how he interacts with the kids. Keep up the great work Whittier Education Campus.

    Whittier Education Campus is a wonderful school! I am so EXCITED about my child's education at Whittier Education Campus. The staff (Ms. Bennett) is so warm and welcoming! The staff is very knowledgable and excited about the school the student's education and their academic program; that is a trait that should be at every school and in the heart of every person working with children but that would only be in a perfect world. So if you are interested in those traits you should definitely visit Whittier Education Campus! I LOVE THE POSITIVE LOVING ATMOSPHERE!!!!! I cannot wait for 2014-2015 school year! Whittier Education Campus is preparing our future generation to make a positive impact to society!

    I liked the school better when it was a true elementary grades Prek-6. There's no separation between the older kids and they are not the best influence on the younger kids. Both my kids attend the school and I'm considering transfer because I dont want their growth hendered by all the language and behavior seen from the older kids. The school is going to reconstuction and I'm not sure if it will be done by time the 10/11 school year starts. That is poor timing/planning on part of administration. The education is good depending on the teacher because not all teacher seem to have the same level of care and expectation for the students.
