    my kids love this school to death it not like no other school because washington is the best-Pamela Dean

    I love Washington! My daughter went to Pre-K here and then because we live out of distrcit had to attend another school for Kindergarten After two weeks I requested an innerdistrict transfer back to Washington. The staff is so friendly and the academic performance is great. The only year I was unsatisfied was when she was in a 1/2 split and she was in second grade. I felt she was taught down to. We are both looking forward to this upcoming school year. They have great activities after school like Math fun night and a reading night with the students and the parents. Some schools are filled with snobby teachers and are full of political issues not Washington it is a great school!

    I have 2 children attend this school. one from the first grade and the other from the 5th to 6th. they were treated very well and there academic scores were high. i am very pleased to have my children attend this school and have not had any problems with the teachers. i am sending my grandchildren to this school when they are old enough which should be next school year. I am very pleased with this school and would recommend to friends which i have. I support this school 100%...
