My Students

We are a Preschool- 5th grade International Baccalaureate Magnet World School that is committed to developing inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people who help to create a better and more peaceful world through intercultural understanding and respect.

Whittier International is a microcosm of the world, diverse in language, race and ethnicity, socioeconomic status and ability.

38% of our students receive ELL services and 71% qualify for free and reduced lunch. We believe our diversity is one of our many strengths in this ever-changing world!

My Project

Children's Theater Company (CTC) , "Neighborhood Bridges" is a critical literacy program that uses theatre, storytelling, and creative writing to empower students to become the narrators of their own lives and the world around them.

Students will be encouraged to think critically and work collaboratively to solving problems as they imagine and create their own original short - theatre pieces.

Third grade classroom teachers will collaborate with the CTC Teaching Artist to develop a unit of inquiry and an extended learning experience that integrates Performing Arts, Literacy and Science.

The CTC residency goals for students include:

• Students will explore and animate stories and texts related to 3rd grade unit on the physics of sound and light.

• Students will work collaboratively to create an original theatre piece to share.

• Students will explore how physical and technical elements of theatre and staging can enhance and impact the overall mood and presentation.

• Students will view and analyze a live theatre performance of The Hobbit at CTC.
