    I have had a total of two children complete wsahington and one still enrolled. The staff at thsi school is amazing. The teachers know the names of every student and most know the child's siblings. I had a child who suffered form mild learning disabilities the program and the way the regular classroom interacted with the resource room and teachers was phenomenal. They truly were ateam doing whatever was necessary to help my daughter get the most out of it. My child was more prepared for middle school because of the work they do at Washington.

    Washington Elementary is an example of great staff and great students working every day to achieve excellence. I am a parent volunteer at the school and am always welcomed with warm greetings. The school is secure organized and efficient. Their first and foremost concern is for the kids. From the custodial staff to the principal to the teachers to the lunchroom and recess staff I see a commitment to excellence that I didn't believe existed until I had a child go through Washington. Washington is not only academically educating our children they are instilling values and character that will remain with the kids throughout their school years. The children truly come first there.

    I have 2 children at Washington. The teachers work very hard to adjust the lessons to fit the needs of each child. The parent involvement is so much higher than the other schools I've visited. Also student membership in boy and girl scouts is higher at this school than at any other school- showing me that the families are investing in their children.

    My son is in the 5th grade at washington right now and he has gone from the beginning. He loves it the teachers are great the principal is great and they have wonderful families attending. Of all the Sioux City School I chose Washington and moved to the area from NE and I have never been sorry. You couldn't make a better choice!
