    There is a genuine interest in the children

    Terrible School. I agree with the above poster. Your child would be better off learning at home than to attend Washington.

    The school can really use some improvements. Aides in the class rooms would really be helpful to the teachers and students. My child is in their last year here and /I am really glad if I had a choice 'I would transfer but I don't have a choice.

    I definitely agree with the other parent this school system needs some serious help. Most of the teachers are there for the paycheck and do not give seem to care if the kids are learning or not. At this point I am so frustrated I am looking into selling my house and get out before another child gets caught in this horrible system.

    If you are considering enrolling your child at htis school...don't do it you would be better off keeping your kid at home and allowing a pcakof wolves to teach him or her...25 kids crammed into a classroom (kindergarden) no aid the teacher looks exhausted and cleraly freustrated by 10 30 no regular recess they complaint its too difficult to take taht many kids out at a time duh! Principal has the nerve to tell me well by law we aren't required to have an aid wiht under 26 kids...not required and unwilling are two different things no after school activities no pre or after care its a waste land [parents had to complaint o get them to keep bathroooms clean yet every other day its some fundraiser or school assembly. I'd rather my kid learn at school not go to a yo-yo assembly...stay away at all costs.
