The one thing that makes this school awesome is the staff! The teachers are super. The principal is very aware of her school and dedicated to making it better each year. My son is in third grade and has struggled in certain areas. The staff has come together to help him be successful. The teachers are very supportive. The only thing the school could use more of is parent involvement.

My daughter has been in Washington Elementray since Kindergarten and is now a 3rd grader. This has to be one of the best schools in Burbank. The teachers are fabulous. Mrs Zenian , the Principal is wonderful and very forward minded. Not to mention they have one the largest Environmental gardens in Burbank. An outdoor classroom for my child! I wish more parents would get involved with the garden committee and the PTA though. The parents of this school are quite uninvolved.

I've had 3 kids in this school - and I still love it. Ms. Clausen the principal is so nice and the staff are so helpful, lovely and friendly, and surprisingly for an LA School - They never smell like a freshly burnt cigarette. This is an amazing school which I highly reccommend.

Washington School is dynamic,engaging, and prepares the students for the real rewards and opportunities in the future. The diversity demonstrated at the Olympic Dance celebration was educational and fun for all involved. Ms. Zenian, the new principal, is extraordinary because she is open to ideas and willing to provide individual assistance to parents, teachers, and students. The school has one of the most beautiful landscapes of all the Burbank Unified Schools with a large garden, an academic garden program, a big yard with lush trees, and a lovely grass field. As a California Distinguished School for some time now, Washington provides excellent support and guidance academically from its teaching staff. In fact, the substitute teaching staff also goes above and beyond with their lessons and pedagogy as evidenced by Ms. Santanastaso who substituted for Ms. Lincoln in 2nd grade this past year. The school is small, warm, and a wonderful place!

Washington is a very nice school- especially for LA County. I feel that the teachers and principals have been honestly dedicated to helping in my plan to mainstream my son, who is worked his way out of SDC, into a full inclusion class without extensive Spec Ed services. This means, so far, his 1st grade teacher, Mrs. Hernandez and his 2nd grade teacher, Ms. Petersen have maintained patience and diligence in calming him and redirecting him, when necessary. Because of their commitment and faith in us, he has been able to reach greater heights. Therefore, I believe that this school will support each child as an individual. The parent community is friendly, too! Lastly, I noticed upon entering the school from another in the area, that Washington promotes American patriotism and that was very important to me, as well. This is a safe school for your children!

I love this school. Ms. Clausen, the principal is excellent. My daughter started going there in Kindergarten in Mrs. White's class and she learned a lot. It wasn't just a play all day kinder, they actually had homework! She is now in the 1st grade with Mrs. Hernandez and the the level of commitment has not changed. All the staff is fully commited to make sure your child does well and if there is an area that needs improvement, they won't wait to the last minute, they let you beforehand so that changes can be made. The PTA is very active! They have made accomodations so that no one feels left out and all suggestions are taken seriously. I love this school!!

This school has great potential to become a strong school, but better parent support is needed. There needs to be more enthusiasm on behalf of the staff and parents.
