    This school is amazing. The teachers work very hard to meet the needs of all students. The community is incredibly supportive. I wish all schools had the friendly environment found at New Washington Elementary.

    Education was unacceptable. Lack of discipline was evident. Gifted program is a joke.

    New Washington Elementary is an excellent school. I have two children here and I volunteer often. The whole staff is very good about making parents feel welcome. The principal is as sweet as they come. The teachers all seem to really love the kids and vise versa.
