Booker T. Washington is a great school. Don't listen to the people that say, "oh, it sucks" or "I hate this school" or "the teachers are bad". Those are the people that don't give any effort. You have to play a part too. Don't just sit back and be lazy. I have been going to this school for 4 years. I'm just an average student. I make average grades. Well actually, this year I've been making all A's on my report cards. That's a first. But anyway, I mind my own business, I don't get involved with many people, I pay attention in class and I am respectable to the teacher. I promise you, these 4 traits will keep your grades up, it'll make you have a good reputation, the teachers will respect you and you WILL graduate. Stay positive. Be active. If you do, you will realize what a great school this really is. What we stand for, which is perpetual hope and striving for the best. Come to Washington!! Also, we have the best band in the land. The Marching Wildcats!! Not forgetting to include the best drum line. So if you're in middle school band, join Washington's band. You will NOT regret it. But overall, Washington is a great school. And always remember, it's great to be a Wildcat!!

Washington high school is overall a good high school. There are many great long term teachers there. The curriculum has been updated to accommodate advanced students, but there are still controls in place to limit acceleration. AP courses are available and instructed by effective teachers. College campus dual enrollment is not encouraged but tolerated by this school.

Worst math department I've ever seen in my life. I've been to 5 different high schools and this might be the worst. There's nothing positive about this school. Teachers will fail you just to fail you.

Washington High is a good school im going to be a senior this coming school year at washington and ive been there since my freshman year and i love the school. The foreign languages i love along with the pep rallys and the homecoming dances at school. We have decent to good teachers there and some of the students are okay there not all. The school has became a little more populated and its harder to move around but overall its a good school.

You get out what you put in any school. I wonder if the parent who complained about the administration ever took the time to volunteer to help out and be part of the solution instead of sitting back complaining. I didn't sit back and let anything stop my kids from getting a good education. Both of my kids received college credits and where able to dual enroll on campus and also take AP courses at BT Washington. From sports, band to academics opportunities are there. Get up get involved and help. Don't sit and wait for the teachers to teach your kid. After all they are you kids!

The administration of BT Washington is horrible...how the principle was promoted/transferred to run this school is amazing. Hopefully the new Escambia County Sup. of Schools will clean house. It is what it is...

I love all my teachers, I was new this year and my teachers made me feel accepted. Mr. Roland really opened my eyes to the study of psycology.

The leadership of this school has changed quite a bit since I was there, but many of the instructors are still around. This school has a lot of resources available to the students, especially in the arts (photo lab, video studio), and industrial arts (mechanical drafting, architechture, wood shop). While those are nice, the school has a good social studies and English faculty. When I was there (graduated a few years back) the math department was horrible, hopefully that has changed.

I being a former student got a full taste of what Washington High was really about behind closed doors. I have moved to another school and since then I have been given the attention that students deserve. I have been concerned and cared about. The faculty at Washington High was never willing to go out of their way to do anything for any students! Many people have complained about Washington and I am one willing to speak out about it. When I become a parent in the future I can assure you Washington is not the place I would choose to send my childern. The lack of motivation and concern the teachers and staff show highly discourage students from wanting an education and wanting to be involved with school functions. Statiscs have shown students who are involved with school functions spend their time being productive and not doing the 'cool' thing.
