Our Monarch

At Whittier Dual Language Magnet School, we proudly embrace the Monarch as our beloved mascot. Inspired by its migratory nature, the Monarch perfectly symbolizes the essence of our school community.

Just like the Monarch's ability to travel back and forth, we foster a dynamic environment where students seamlessly navigate between two languages. Here,language is not confined to a single space but rather empowers our students to communicate effectively everywhere they go. Whether expressing themselves in English or Spanish, our students have the freedom to use their linguistic skills and thrive in a truly inclusive and diverse learning environment.
