Leffingwell Elementary School Home

Principal Scott Blackwell and several students.


Our belief is that dreams are the launching pad for all students in their educational journey through life. Our dream is to be accepted for what we are, challenged to become what we can be. Our intent is to motivate our children to seek and reach their maximum potential through honorable and productive behaviors, which will enable them to become responsible members of society. Our ultimate goal is that our students will never lose their thirst for knowledge, or their joy for learning and living, and that they will always “Reach for the Stars.”

Opening the Door

At the East Whittier City School District, we are preparing our students to be 21st Century citizens by teaching them five essential skills: Communication, Collaboration, Creativity, Critical thinking and Community. These skills will open the door to our students' future education, careers and other important areas of their lives.
