This my child's first year at BTW, I must say I'm impressed with how things are being ran Ms. Jackson the assistant principal goes above and beyond to make sure that issues and concerns are handled properly. I would like to see higher test scores. However, at the begin of the school year I had a bit of an issue with my child's teacher Ms. Dabrowski using the wrong choice of words with my child. The issue was handled, but I believe she's picking with my child because I made the complaint. In a way I'm fine with it because it teaches my child that she's going to have to deal with a supervisor like this someday and she'll know how to handle it, but as a mother I don't like it. On the other hand, I must say Ms. Dabrowski does her job as a teacher, as far as, academics she does an amazing job, no complaints there. In my eyes that's all that matters, as long as, my child is getting a quality education from her I can tolerate the rest. Just as long as she doesn't take it too far.
I am very pleased with the principal and the teaching staff at Washington. It's the best kept secret in Unit 4 School District. I really appreciate the level of concern and special attention the staff has towards the students. I enjoy seing interaction between the teachers, staff, parents and students that is encouraging, positive and uplifting. I'm glad I choose this school because my daughters exposure to other cultures within this university town is priceless.
Fantastic teachers, enriched curriculum, and positive school culture characterize this building. I have had children attending this school for the past 8 years and have never been anything but pleased about the education and treatment they have received. I appreciate the respect for children evidenced by the staff and the way that children are taught to respect each other. The art and music programs are the best in the district. As a parent, I feel welcomed, supported, and encouraged to become involved in the education of my children. I have enjoyed meeting diverse groups of parents in the community who have chosen to attend this school
The teachers in this school work so incredibly hard to help our children excell. I have never seen a school where the teachers are working late and providing so many programs for the children in a wide variety of areas including Spanish and English.
