  • I have two children at John J. Whittier. My husband and I are very pleased with the staff. The teachers are wonderful, fun, very involved, helpful, and my children love them all. Every year my children go through the, "I don't mind who I get next year because we love them all". That is a great thing to hear. Whittier Wildcats are the best!
