I have two Childern attending this school and can't wait to move them! This school is okay if your child don't the extra help. I have been trying to get help and it took me 3 months to make a appointment with this new Principal( 2 cancellations on her behave)..There are only a few good teachers (only by requested) they have no cross grads at all and the only reason I rated with 3 stars is because of the few good teachers. This new principal seem too busy to meet with parents. Not happy at all with this school.

My child attends Washington Elementary and has had the best teachers. Test scores from the CST are in with my child scoring Advanced in both Language Arts and Mathematics. The school looks nicer since the new principal came in. The principal is very friendly and approachable. The office staff is not as nice as the administration and teachers. My child participates in the after school program and it is wonderful. They have a school band and perform many recitals throughout the school year.
School is ok not the greatest. to get a real good teacher you need to request. The school principal seams to lean towards the latin community re bilingual learning which I belive takes away from the english speakers. The surrounding community is good no observed crime. children appear happy and wear uniforms.
I would like to see more after school programs available to the students. I think most teachers are working hard in teaching our children.
The academic programs are hit and miss depending on the teacher you get (It is based really on who you know).
I would give the school a satisfactory score. I think there is plenty of room for improvement when it comes to comupters reading and math profeciency.
I had four children attend Washington Elem. from 1990 until 2003. What a wonderful experience my family had at this school. The teachers were great hard working and very friendly. They brought out confidence in my children and encouraged them to do their best. So much so that all were identified gifted by the time they were in the 2nd grade. The school's gifted program challenged my kids so that they can succeed as they grew and to prepare them for middle school. I Thank all the teachers that were there for my kids. The staff and the various principals that we saw come and go.
