Whittier School is a separate school option for students who are non-diploma bound in grades K-12. The students are significantly impacted by behavioral, communication, academic, sensory, and/or social needs. Whittier School provides a highly structured educational environment to assist students in acquiring academic, social, independent living, and vocational skills through alternate standards-based instruction. Only students with IEP’s attend Whittier School, so opportunities for mainstreaming or access to general education peers cannot be provided. Students who attend Whittier School have received extensive interventions with minimal effectiveness, often in a number of environments. The ultimate goal of Whittier School is to provide students with the necessary skills and supports to successfully return to a comprehensive school site.
