Rankings look great test scores super awesome! Visited the school with my child last week before he started school, today. The staff is awesome and we love the environment! Washington is definitely is a great public school!
Washington Elementary School is the closest thing to a private school, offering the children all the things they need. Fantastic teachers, office staff, P.E., science, music and art are part of every childs weekly offerings. Fantastic leadership from a principal that is forward thinking and believes our school is a community in itself. The school parents and PTO is invaluable in providing fund raising for after school enrichment and field trips.
My child is Washington's GATE magnet program, which is a great program. Kids are taught a GATE curriculum all day. For the first time, my child isn't bored. Wonderful PTO. Great teachers and staff - GATE and non-GATE. Fantastic music (Konrad Kono) and art (CCP) program. Inferior computers in classrooms - limited Internet. Good after-school enrichment thru PTO. Excellent PE and science programs. Needs more playground supervision, better food.
