Whittier Elementary School Ratings & Reviews

February 01, 2018 Submitted by a parent
It just feels unhappy a lot of the time. Recent climate survey was down 40 points and in the fifty percentile. I want my teachers to be happy and confident.

Our son is thrilled to go back to Whittier this fall. As a struggling student, he's had the chance to work with top notch, committed teachers who keep us informed of his progress and relentlessly encourage his growth. The principal has been accessible (she hosts morning meetings about once a month and is responsive to e-mail) and the staff passionate and smart. We feel so lucky to be a part of this community and appreciate the leadership and vision from the principal who has made the school the wonderful place it is.

I'm not certain how some of these negative comments are reflected in reality. Whittier is an EXCELLENT elementary school! My son has attended for six years and loved just about everything about it. Every single teacher he's had has been top-notch; Whittier's test scores are above both the Seattle and state averages; and the administration has addressed every single issue (and we've had very few). To say bullying is condoned is patently ridiculous. Now, if you're expecting a private school experience for $25K a year, you'll probably be disappointed. But as far as public school performance is concerned, Whittier is excellent.

I attended UW's MIT program and interned in a number of SPS elementary schools over the course of '05-'08, which set my high expectations for public schools. The test scores and demographics online make Whittier look like a great school. Unfortunately, Whittier has been nothing but a disappointment since our arrival: terrible for new families not entering through kindergarten--little orientation or effort made to properly place students in leveled programs; the school had a high turnover of principals in the last 5+ years, over which time the parents and PTA gained too much power in the school and the teaching staff became dysfunctional and feudal, per the current principal; veteran families are better equipped to navigate the strong vs. weak teachers; and most glaringly: the school tracks the kids at the end of kinder with no hope of movement up or down (assessment and teacher recommendation dictate initial groupings, but then the kids are stuck. No kids move down to avoid parental upset, which means no kids can move up. New kids are just plopped in groups with minimal data and then stuck.); the Spectrum students and local affluence are what inflate the scores for this school.

Whittier has outstanding demographics and a very involved parent and community base. Both of my children are in the Spectrum program at Whittier, and I never imagined I would be so pleased with a public city school. Whittier is a fine example of what city schools can be like again in good neighborhoods in the post-busing era. My youngest is taking up the unicycle now, making her a real Whittier Wildcat.
