    This school is excellent with academics and early intervention of children with academic challenges. The only downfall is about 75% of the staff is neither culturally competent nor friendly to minority or children of color. This is an epidemic that many public schools in the area need to gain a sense of balance for within the environment.

    Washington Street is a wonderful school. Both Kindergarten teachers are so friendly and really care about the students. Miss Wilson is the perfect first grade teacher. She was so helpful in teaching our children to read basic math etc. My son loves school thanks to her. She takes her own time to do special programs withthem and has great communication with parents. She always call you back promptly and has called our house just to say what a joy our child was in class.
