Washington Elementary School 1

Terrible School. Mr Zamarripa is the principal 2013 school year. Mr Cash is my sons 5th work was under par and would not be accepted. I called the teacher and he declined to give me further instruction on how to do the assignment correctly during a window where grades could be reviewed. The teacher declined to give my child any further instruction stating he had already told the class what to do. Mr Cash reported my son should have consequences for not doing a good assignment, and getting a zero would be the result. Very punitive. Mr Zamarripa met only to state he would support whatever the teacher said. This, I feel is very weak leadership. Mr.Zamarripa must just want to be "buddies" with his staff. And this type of pleaser personaility is a great way of not listening. Unfortunately Ive now spoken with 2 other moms who pulled their children out of Washington. We had an advocate attend the meeting and her advice was to avoid this school. She's had a lot of experience with them. Washington is inflexible and I feel bad for my child for subjecting him to this school.

My two children and my two grandchildren all attended Washington School. The teachers and staff were great for both generations.

My son went there 8 yrs ago and it was a great school for him to get his foundation. I have heard from other parents with their children going there now, that it's still a wonderful school.

Wahsington Elementary is a great school with a very eclectic base of Students and Teachers. They have an excellent special ed department and encourage parent envolvment. Both of my children go there on choice pass and love it.
