Washington Elementary School, Redondo Beach. My son attended kindergarten and is now in first grade. So far, everything about this school has been outstanding. The teachers show great care for the children and my son has demonstrated that he is learning at a top level. The school is well organized and the staff are always friendly and helpful. I highly recommend this school.

My daughter has attended Washington from K-4. Initially I was a bit hesitant because of online reviews, test scores, and the fact that the school doesn't look so amazing from the outside. But we decided to give it a try, and I've got to say that this is truly a wonderful school. The teachers really make the difference--they are dedicated, motivated, and positive! I'm not a fan of the PTA, and do think there should be some improvements made to the physical plant, but I'll let the next story illustrate how impressed I am with the place. We're about to move to another home in Redondo Beach that is much closer to one of the other, higher-rated schools. My daughter and I jointly agreed that she should attend 5th grade at Washington--it's just that good.

Washington Elementary is our home school and we could not have wished for a better school for our child. Every teacher is top notch and the staff could not be more caring.

My child has been going to this school the last 6 years. I am so happy with the beautiful and organized the school is. The play grounds are huge and clean, where children are suppose to play. The teachers there are warm, caring and attentive to their students. The teachers are so loving during drop offs and informative when I pick up. I hear lots of funny story of what my child did that day and how much pride the children have for their class. All in all, I am able to go to work in ease every day knowing my child is happy, safe and loved.

So far so good! My son has attended his first 4 days of Transitional Kindergarten at Washington and is having a good time and getting into the swing of things. His teacher, Mrs. Carpenter, seems very happy and positive. He comes home each day telling me of a new story, song, or other fun thing he did, with excitement. I hope it continues going well!

Historically, Washington Elementary School in Redondo Beach had a reputation as the worst among the districts seven elementary schools. Many of the families are working class, and parent participation was low. That's all changed. Parents are more involved, test scores are soaring and Principal Jackie O'Sullivan is leading the charge. The teachers are all enthusiastic, caring and strict (according to my kids, anyway!). The PTA is a small but dedicated group that works hard to find ways to enhance the education experience and keep improving the school. We're proud to be Explorers!

Washington Elementary is a great school. My niece is in the dual immersion program and she loves it. My nephew graduated from Washington and is now in the eighth grade. He also enjoyed his elementary school years. The teachers are very nice and informative. The kids respond well to them. I am proud of my decision to put my kids in Washington. We have come from another school district where they didn't even supply the classrooms with paper to do written work and Washington didn't ask for any school supplies. Everything was provided.

I am not only a parent at the school, but also a teacher. My child has attended Washington for 4 years now. I chose to have him attend Washington over our high-performing neighborhood school because I love my school so much. I haven't regretted the decision for a second. I have been happy with every teacher my son has had. The teachers and principal at Washington are extremely dedicated and work very well together. There are many opportunities for after school classes and in-school enrichment.

Excellent school. We do not live in Redondo beach but have a permit to attend Washington for the Spanish Dual Immersion program. Not once have I regretted my decision and am thankful everyday that she is in the program and school. Not only are the academics stellar, but the kindness and support of the teachers are amazing. This includes both English and Spanish kinder teachers and classes. The Principal is so easy to talk to and makes everyone feel like Washington is their home. Also, the parent support and participation is phenomenal, and that is because we are all Very proud to be apart of Washington Elementary.

Never could I have imagined a more loving, warm, inspirational school! As a teacher, I tend to be critical. Now I am just jealous because I want to be a part of this incredible school. The staff is so happy and motivated which in turn makes the parents and students ready to excel. My child is in the dual immersion class and I am just in awe with the entire program and teachers. I feel like we are incredibly lucky to be part of Washington Elementary!

We absolutely love Washington! Our daughter is in 1st grade now, and we have had 2 fabulous years so far. I am a teacher in another district, so when the time came to decide where my children would go to school, I was very particular about making the right choice. My husband and I are both on PTA and he is also on the School Site Council, so we are very involved in the school. The teachers are well-trained, the principal is enthusiastic and dynamic and the population is diverse and friendly. There are so many great activities available for people who want to be involved. Our daughter also goes to the Child Development Center on campus for afterschool care and we love that as well. My daughter loves school!!

My son is in the dual immersion program at Washington this year. It is the first year they have done it and it has been an amazing experience for us. We love the teachers, the families, and the principal is the BEST around!!! They are implementing a lot of great program at Washington!!!

We moved to Redondo Beach from Northern California and was hesitant to put our daughter in Washington for Kindergarten. The previous principal talked me into keeping her in the school (to try it out) and we DO NOT regret that decision. My daughter had an engaging, challenging and inspiring program in her Kinder class. She just re-registered into 1st grade coming from Utah and we love love the program in Washington. Teachers and staff are very helpful. Principal is top notch and caring about everyone - very accessible and listens! I have no doubt that my child is getting the best education. My son will be entering into Washington next year as a Kinder and I know he will receive the best as well.

We love our school. We have been at Washington for 3 wonderful years. My oldest is in 2nd grade and my middle is in the spanish immersion kinder. Every teacher we have had has been academically spectacular but the caring and kindness my children receive makes them want to work hard. The principal and staff are approachable and they all want the best for the kids and their school. The principal has even come to our home and read our children a bedtime story. Our PTA works hard for the kids, and the effort shows. I love how the school from the principal to the hard working custodians care about the campus and how they are so GREEN. They started a Green Program this year that has the kids actively involved in decreasing their impact. It is also important to note how demographically diverse Washington is. My family is looking forward to many more fantastic years here.

We came to WA for the Dual Immersion Spanish/English program they started this year, and for the fantastic leadership. We have a son who is thriving, is academically challenged, and is supported by his teachers and after school staff. I am so grateful that they have leadership with a long term vision. As a person who works in education, the staff takes care of my son, like they would their own. Two thumbs up to WA!!

Washington is a great school. My child loves it. Today (Friday March 9 2012) there was a PTA party and my daughter told me to sign up for it 2 days before the party. Signing up makes her happy to go to the party and makes me happy to support. GO EXPLORERS, BIG BLUE!!

I won't lie. We tried to get our son out of Washington because of the school's reputation (mainly based on test scores). We couldn't get in to our school of choice, so we started here for kindergarten. We had a great year and this year decided to no longer petition to leave the school. The teachers and the principal are wonderful, caring, and so dedicated, and I'm proud of my son's academic progress. The events and programs are a lot of fun, and great community builders! There is talk of implementing a dual language immersion progrm. I've heard such programs enhance crtical thinking and multitasking- and of course second language acquisition! This is the school people are going to be lining up for!

I think that Washington Elementary is an excellent school. Coming from the east coast where the schools have consistently out performed California schools, I was very concerned about the education my children would receive. I'm pleased to say that they are thriving at Washington. I could not be more pleased with the education that they are receiving. The teachers and administration are excellent. Our principal has cultivated an atmosphere that is conducive to a positive learning experience and my children LOVE going to school everyday. When we first moved to California, we were in an awful school district where no one cared. My children were miserable: stressed out and crying every morning because they didn't want to go to school. Now, I feel blessed to be a part of the Washington community where my kids need for an excellent education, as well as a positive learning environment are met daily.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

The different student groups are identified by the California Department of Education; if there are fewer than 10 students in a particular group in a school, the state doesn't report data for that group.
