Washington Elementary has a staff that gets an A in my book ! Their goal is truly making sure that each child succeeds. Washington has great teachers that love their jobs and make themselves available to the parents. Title One teachers are available for children who need a little more one on one, and all teachers work well together for one common goal. I think Washington is a great school and I'm happy that my children get to be a part of it. Keep up the good work!!

Terrible school apparently, I am trying to go out of my way to make sure my kids don't go there. Sadly when we moved into a new home from Chubbuck. When asked what school our kids are going to, I asked the neighbors and they said Washington elementary. I asked a few friends who both live in the area and also people from work. I have not heard 1 positive thing about the school and Sadly I have talked to a lot of people. Things I have heard- Principal is self righteous and does not agree on any solutions unless it comes from him, Always has to be right, One person said he bully's threw words or talks over them. Comments towards Teachers- Not a lot of parent interaction, Many kids are behind, so the children that are ahead it pulls them back. One teacher went threw a divorce or separation and everyday the mom would hear her 3rd grader bring home emotional news of the divorce. Teachers do not connect with the kids because there are to many in the class room for the teachers to handle. PTA- 2 of the PTA presidents have been caught embezzling the money from the program. The school is not easy on the eyes... Sadly, I have heard and more.

Way to many student to teacher ratio. Very unorganized. It took the pricipal over two weeks to call us back, over an important issue.

I am very excited about how well my daughters teacher relates to the children. My daughter not only has learned from the class room material; but also from how well her teacher is at being a roll model to all the children. I can not say enough good things about this school and the staff.

I was pleased at how well my child's teacher actually knew her. The teacher knew her moods, her talents, and reinforced her positive learning skills. I was uncomfortable at first putting her back into a public school after being in a private one for two years, but I see how well the teachers try to teach each student on an individual level.
