    This school is an excellent school. We offer more opportunities for children to show what they know than one test on one day can show. I had some realitor call me and make all kinds of accusations about this school based on the innappropriate and mislabled one test rating. You cannot learn what a school is like from reading three people's opinions and looking at the results of one test that this website has mislabled. We have a great school - come for a tour and see for yourself.

    The staff is the most caring staff in Iowa. They pushed my child academically and focus on respect and responsibility is evident.

    Extremely supportive staff. I love my child's school and will be sad to see him leave.

  • (6 years ago)

    The most caring group of teachers I've ever met. My child loves Washington!
