THIS SCHOOL IS HORRIBLE. . There is a huge communication problem between staff and the students and parents. This is our first and last year at a school where the environment is tough. Washington does very little to educate the child in all areas of academics. If your child is above average I do not recommend this school because it will not help them reach a higher potential. This school simply does not have the resources to accomodate such students. Its too busy trying to improve phonics and reading skills in order to improve their low testing scores. Its sad but this is a reality. The scores will improve as the teaching and communication improves...

My grandchildren has learned so much at this school. I was worried about the Montessori concepts but found it to be a great asset to their education. The Principal and staff cares about the students and makes parents and the community feel welcome.This school also have great programs that show the student's talent.Music,Arts and Spanish classes is a plus!

I am a new teacher and have been at Washington Montessori for two years so far. I chose to stay at the school despite some of the problems. The teachers are wroking with the students constantly. They discipline consistently in ways that work one time, but perhaps not the next. The communication home is probably one of the weaknesses, because there is so much that goes home that it becomes too much to follow. The school is getting better with parental involvement. The parents that show the interest in providing opportunities for their students really make a difference. Approaching a parent that isn't open to the child's poor choices is difficult because they won't support the consequences and show their student it is unacceptable. Otherwise, I love the school and plan to stay to see the wonderful changes that happen over the years.

I had a prek daughter who went to Washington elementary and I must say I was pleased with how well organized her teacher was and how caring she was. My daughter learned so much and everyday she looked forward to going to school. The plus for me was the way she came home telling me what she learned, what activities she did at school, and about her teachers. The negative side is when I went to the school I seen so may students wondering the halls and cursing. Lastly the buses ran poorly most of the time the bus did not show up and when you were to call and report it in the office they didn't know anything about it. .The office administrative communication to parents were very poor you asked the principal or even the secretary a question about the information they sent how they seem to know nothing
