Welcome to Whittier International Elementary School!

Whittier International Elementary is a public PreK-5 International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme (IB-PYP) World School (since Feb, 2007).  Learn about the Whittier IB World School journey/timeline

Our Vision
All Whittier International Elementary students will become independent global thinkers through inquiry and action

Our Mission
Encourage exploration, inquiry, and critical thinking
Provide learning opportunities that integrate subject areas
Promote local and global action
Respect cultural similarities and differences

 

As a public school, Whittier International School belongs not only to our families, but also the community at large. We welcome and invite all to visit and observe the hard work our students and teachers do every day.  You will see teachers engaged with small groups of students, or the whole class.  Because of this, classroom visits are not a time to have private conversations with teachers, interact with the students (unless invited to do so by the teacher), or interrupt the learning.  

When you come to visit a classroom at Whittier International, you are asked to please sign in at the front desk, put on a visitor's sticker, and wait for the greeting desk to contact the classroom teacher to make sure the timing is good. We appreciate your patience.  We want all visits to Whittier International to be a positive experience, and welcome feedback.
