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 School Community,

It is with pride and pleasure that I welcome students, parents, family members and staff members to the new school year at Loma Vista School. This year promises to be a special one for our school, and we have many positive goals we are working toward.

Our teachers and other staff members are looking forward to making the next nine months the best they can be. I know that each day of the school year will be filled with quality teaching and dedicated learning. Our focus continues to be on standards-based instruction, student achievement and creating an enriching educational environment that allows each child to reach and exceed his or her potential.

You can help us each day by making sure that your children arrive at school on time and are prepared to learn. This means that they've had a good night's sleep, that they've had a healthy breakfast at home or at school, and that they have their textbooks and homework in hand.

Throughout the school year, we will have a number of opportunities for parents to be involved in their child's education and to support the school. We appreciate the parents and other family members who participate on our School Site Council and our parent/teacher group, and who volunteer to assist in classrooms, on fieldtrips and at special school events. Please speak with someone in our front office if you'd like to become more involved at Loma Vista School. There are many areas where your opinion, skills and hard work are very valuable to us.

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 kmerrill@swhittier.k12.ca.us. I am available for appointments with parents, community and business partners.

Thank you for supporting Loma Vista School and for everything you do to make education a top priority in our community.

Sincerely,

Ms. Merrill
