Whittier offers a dynamic and comprehensive academic program. Our students take academic classes in English, mathematics, history, science and health/physical education. Students may choose from a variety of course offerings and academic levels, including college preparatory and honors courses. We also offer a large number of elective courses for juniors and seniors and foreign language courses in French and Spanish.
We also offer concurrent enrollment in conjunction with Northern Essex Community College. Students who take these courses earn college credits that are accepted at every Massachusetts State college and university, and many private ones as well.
Our students have excelled on state-mandated MCAS testing - consistently earning scores that are highest among all other vocational-technical high schools and that are comparable to the scores of students enrolled in comprehensive high schools.
Whittier Tech is proud to be a 1:1 school - each and every student is provided a school owned iPad. Technically savvy and innovative instructors create lessons that include individual and cooperative learning, self-paced assignments, peer editing, virtual biology dissections and more.
