Washington G Elementary School5

The school is great, the teachers and the goals it has set for the children's future! The vice principal is very nice as well, he personally handles problems that arise and has no problem calling or emailing a parent personally. None of the staff is hard to get a hold of if anything is needed. I do wish they would have perks for the kids hard work such as a dance or extra curricular activity would be nice just not a dress down day. But as a parent i understand the goals they set so i could not take a star away as the future is most important. Terrific school!
the school and education is very nice but the principle is a cheapskate. he took out every fun activity. there is no more dances, rally, night assemblies , poor lunches. and the teachers a re very strict. my child prefers the school how it was 3 years ago
I love Washington Elementary School for many reasons. 1) I went to school at Washington Elementary. Had such great memories that I came back to teach here. 2) The staff is great. Everyone supports one another, everyone is easy going and fun. 3) The school has excellent students. Students are respectful and motivated (at least most of the time:) 4) The administration is extemely supportive and understanding. 5) Our school has always scored above average on state tests and we are one of the top schools in our area. 6) A few years ago we made it onto the top 50 Chicago Schools in Chicago Magazine. It's no secret, GWES is the best!!!!!
It's an exemplary neighborhood school where you find a hard-working and dedicated staff. Every grade level knows what goals are to be mastered,so the teachers help the students achieve those goals. As a result, our students are successful when taking the ISAT.
