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!
