The mission of South Whittier School District is to prepare every student for success in high school and beyond by focusing on the core academic subjects in an effective and integrated curriculum.

We believe:

All students can learn.

Students learn best when they are engaged in challenging and appropriate learning focused on the core academic subjects of language arts, mathematics, science and social studies integrated with physical education and the fine arts.

Quality teachers are the single greatest predictor of student success.

The diversity and uniqueness of each student should be respected.

Students learn best when families value education, and teach their children to accept increasing responsibility for their own learning.

Quality education improves the quality of life for students, their families, and the community now and in the future.

Dear Loma Vista Families,

            It is with much excitement and honor to be part of Loma Vista family as your newly appointed principal.  For some of you this will be a continuation of a long-standing relationship with our seasoned staff and welcoming school community.  For others this will be your first year in what we hope is the beginning of many great years to come. 

            As principal I welcome the opportunity to build relationships with the Loma Vista students, families, and staff.  This year will be exciting, busy, and rewarding for all of our students. Join us in making school a great experience, as parent involvement is an integral part of our students' education.   We have a number of opportunities for parents to be involved and support the school.  We appreciate the parents and other family members who participate on our School Site Council, Parent Teacher Association, and classroom volunteers.  Please speak with someone in our front office if you’d like to become more involved at Loma Vista School. 

The Loma Vista staff and I want to take the opportunity to thank you in advance for your partnership in your child’s education and for everything you do to make education a top priority in our community. Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions, ideas, concerns or if you are interested in becoming involved in our efforts at (562) 941-4712 or you can send me an email at I am available for appointments with parents, community and business partners.
