My fondest memories of childhood come from attending Washington Elementary. The teachers were wonderful caring individuals. I count one of them, a Mrs. Bossman, who taught sixth grade many years ago, as one of the teachers who influenced my decision to become a teacher.
Washington is a good school. It offers a helpful staff and a diverse student body. I am so glad we sent our son here. His first year experience was fantastic. It is a smaller school so the staff know most of the students by name. The staff is very flexible in accommodating the cultural and religious choices parents make for their children. It is also great that my child gets to attend a school with deaf children. The staff teaches and uses sign language throughout the day with ALL students. We are thrilled that our son is able to learn a third language because of the school's diversity. As this is our first year, we have little experience with the PTO. So far it seems good. They have pulled together many activities, both during and after school. It appears that many of the parents participate and get involved.
