I was not too happy with this school. I myself, go to the school. The teachers never really seem to care what students do, and that is a major factor to controlling a school. Also, if you have a bullying problem or school problem, the school will simply tell you to leave and figure it out on your own. One thing that is insanely bad about this school is racism, drugs, and constant cussing. Washington has great sports and athletics, but they have terrible education supply along with a rude community. I fully recommend Borgia over this school.

WHS values all disciplines. It reflects an awareness that kids grow and prosper when involved in activities outside the classroom. The arts as well as athletics and academics are important here.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Missouri used the End-of-Course (EOC) Assessments to test high school students in Algebra I, Algebra II, Geometry, English I, English II, American History, Government, and Biology. The EOC Assessments are standards-based, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined by the state of Missouri for each subject. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the test.
