Whittier Union High School District has a reputation for providing high-quality instruction. Whittier High School recently earned a coveted six-year accreditation from the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC), an endorsement that in recent years has only been awarded to 2 percent of schools. WHS’ high marks follow La Serna and Sierra Vista high schools, which also received six-year accreditations in 2013. Contact: Laura Flores, (562) 668-7833
