My child attended Washington as a kindergarten student 2012-2013. Her class size never exceeded 16 students and her teacher was wonderful. Ms. Banta is one of the most caring teachers out there! We were very lucky to have her! My only complaint is in the physical education department. The PE teacher is a little too demanding of 5&6 year old kindergarten students and runs the show as if it was a military camp.

I found this school to be lacking in it's education for the incoming Kindergarten students. The class size was huge 34 kids, one teacher, and over 15 if the children only spoke Spanish. Not a problem if they had the original set up for the kids with English as a second language. My child was basically taking preschool over again. The teacher seemed frazzled and angry as we saw her yelling and getting upset in front of the kids. When I spoke to the principal about my concerns he basically patted me on the head and said to get over it. Very disappointed in the direction that Wheaton has taken it's schools. This coming from a life ling Wheaton resident who attended these very same schools.
