I am considering WSMA as a possible option for my bright 4th grade son. I am so far very impressed with the safety and cleanliness of the campus, the responsive STEAM staff, the friendly, dynamic, can-do Assistant Principal, and the new PTA president, who is a maverick. Also very happy to know a couple of super involved families who have chosen WSMA for their daughters next year. Will post updates as the year goes on.

We choose this school for the new STEAM (Science Technology Engineering Arts Math) program, which is in its second year. The school is a bit of a work in progress but great things are definitely happening. My 6th grader tells me that he enjoys many of his classes and really likes the teachers and staff - this is from a kid that for years told us that he hated school (and he was at one of the highly regarded, very rigorous pusd elementary schools). There are great teachers and administrators here and as it's a new magnet program, there are also district staff working hard to make the new program a success.

About this school

Currently, we are named Washing STEAM Magnet Academy. Formerly Washington Middle School, we re-branded our school after being awarded the Magnet School Assistance Program grant in 2013-2014. Our magnet themes are science, technology, engineering, art, and math. Courses are designed to integrate those themes in core classes via hands-on, student-centered, project-based learning activities.
