I have lived in this neighborhood 35 years. My daughter went to BTW and now my grandson. We are very involved in PTA and other school programs. It is a diverse school with lots of activities and wonderful staff and PTA. I can't imagine a better school or faculty.
Washington has a great mixture of students. The teachers have been there many years and are very supportive of their students. The principal is a very good communicator. The PTA has been extremely active for many years. They do a great job at supporting the students and staff with all the educational and family type projects. This school participates in activities within its community and has a great relationship with its neighboring schools.
The quality of teachers at BTW is fantastic! Each teacher my daughter has had has been above par! There is a great music program with both band and orchestra being offered. The PTA is highly involved in the school even though parent involvement is not where it should be. The principal cares about her students and teachers and is very supportive of the PTA. There is an accelerated reading program that the students are very adamant about as they are rewarded with a store at the end of each quarter in which to 'shop' with their accumulated points. (Provided by PTA.) PTA also offers an Art Masterpiece program in which parents present great masterpieces to students twice a month. The students love this progam! I've done it for 4 years and have seen the kids retain what they've learned over that period of time! Overall BTW is a great school!
