Welcome to Whittier Elementary!

Whittier Elementary is a wonderful place to learn! We are a transitional kindergarten through fifth grade school located in culturally diverse central Long Beach. Whittier is a single track (Track B) year round school.

Our school provides students with a strong instructional program. High expectations for academic achievement are coupled with the right of all students to a safe and secure school environment.

We encourage all of our students to become life-long learners and contributing members of society. We believe all students can learn and succeed. Our teachers and support staff work very hard to make sure all of our students receive the best possible education.

We are “Wizards at Teaching and Learning!”

Track B will be on Spring Vacation starting on Friday, March 30th. We will return to school Monday, May 8th.

The Long Beach Public Library will offer an amnesty program for overdue book fines during the month of April, in celebration of National Library Month. From April 1 to April 30 the library will welcome back its overdue books and waive associated fines. Return any undamaged, overdue library materials to your local Long Beach Public Library location, and your overdue fines will be waived. If you have overdue fines from previously returned materials, donate a new book to the library and those fines will be waived, too.  For more information, visit the Long Beach Public Library in person or online at www.lbpl.org.
