Whittier Union has spearheaded the important task of disaggregating achievement data – from attendance rates to graduation rates – to know which students need additional support, leading to continual improvement in its student achievement over the last 15 years.
Below are just some of ways WUHSD measures success.
Four-Year Cohort Graduation Rate
Whittier Union graduates attend such prestigious universities as Harvard, Stanford, Columbia and USC, campuses within the University of California and California State University systems.
On-Target for Graduation Rate
More Whittier Union students than ever before are earning the credits they need to graduate on time, earning among the highest on-target to graduate rates in District history.
A-G Completion Rate
More than 60 percent of students are completing the courses necessary for entrance into the University of California and California State University systems, known as the a-g requirements. The courses mark a level of academic preparation students should achieve to successfully take on university-level work.
Attendance rates across Whittier Union schools have consistently followed an upward trend with a District average of 96.4 percent in 2016-17, demonstrating increased student engagement.
