I am a former student of this school and I found it terrible. The restrooms were unclean, the faculty were too lenient when it came to enforcing the rules, and some of my teachers provided little instruction. I also didn't like being told to get to class by security guards who didn't even look like they finished high school themselves. Overall, I was not motivated to work hard and stay in line in such an unsafe atmosphere.
it is our second year at Washington and I have to say this was the perfect fit for my child. The adminstration are very open and accessible, I have no safety worries at all. The staff really cares about the kids and are doing their best to provide a quality education in light of budget cuts. They have a small but strong PTSA (would love to see it grow) that partners with the administration and on average provides upwards to $7,000 annually in the form of teacher grants to help improve the ediucation. Lots of clubs to hit every interest, strong sports, student rallys and spirit days, service groups throughout the school, Beacon Center and an online posted Dalily Bulletin for parents to be kept in the loop!. Go Eagles!
I love the diversity at Washington. Students from all corners of the earth are enrolled here, and their joy and energy bring excitement to the classroom every day. I feel privileged to teach them.
George Washington High School is a great department. Fulfilling education that stays in your mind. Preparing students for a bright future.
Great View! Great Students! Caring and Hard-working Staff! Wonderful PTSA Support! We want to be The Best!
GREAT VIEW! Great staff & students there is more that i can't fit it in this short massage!!!
I'm a former student at Washington. It's a great school, very diverse and has many great teachers. I loved going there and I stayed there until I graduated.
GWHS has so many creative and artistic opportunities for it's students. We have ceramics, choir, dance, band, orchestra, drama, drawing, painting, graphic design, stage tech, video production, musical theater, etc.
great school. they try to keep kids busy which is good. they have lots going on too.
It's a diverse comprehensive school. There is a good sense of community. It is a great place to work.
I am a student currently attending George Washington High and so far I love it. GWHS is a great school with many great clubs, after school programs, and best of all lots of academic tutoring and help. We also have great sports teams. We have lots of good opportunities to help your community and to get involved. We have many great teachers who go out of their ways to make sure we all learn. We strongly believe in equality and we have one of the most diverse student bodys in the SFUSD. Overall i am very pleased with GWHS so far and i encourage new students to come to GWHS because its a great school with many great things to offer. We also have a great view of the golden gate bridge...on a good day. By the way GWHS is what we call George Washington High School for short.

The students and teachers have lots of spirit, and you have fun while you learn a lot.
I love Washington High School because I can always find help when I need it.
George Washington is a smaller version of a mini city! The school represents the diversity found in California and offers students a rigorous academic program along with services and support.
