Programs and Services

Whittier School offers educational programs for students in kindergarten through transition (ages 18-22). Whittier is a separate school setting for students in the moderate to severe range of disability who have an Individualized Education Program (IEP) and are working towards a certificate of completion. Students who attend Whittier are significantly impacted by behavioral, communication, academic, sensory and/or social needs.

Whittier School provides a highly structured educational environment to support students in acquiring academic, social-emotional, behavior, independent living, and vocational skills. Individual behavior plans as well as school-wide positive behavior interventions and supports are implemented to support student behavior. Whittier's students also receive art instruction through SDUSD's Visual and Performing Arts (VAPA) program and daily physical education classes. 

Designated instructional services (DIS) are provided to students who have these services detailed in their Individualized Education Plan (IEP). DIS include, but are not limited to, Language and Speech Services, Occupational Therapy (OT), and Adapted Physical Education (APE).
