    This is my son's first year at Washington Elementary. I chose this school for him because statistically it is one of the best schools in the city of Trenton NJ. I had to realize that statistics should not be the only factor in choosing a school for my child so I had to ask God to place my son in a school where he can get a good education socially as well as academically. Overall I think Washington Elementary is a good school. They do however have a few flaws that needs to be addressed and corrected. The school does not provide the classrooms with adequate amounts of paper to use for daily activities. The teachers have to ask parents to donate them to the school. Donating is not a problem however if there is not enough to go around in the school what will they do when they run out?
