This was our first year at Washington. All of the staff and teachers are great! They offer extra help clubs after school for an hour to help with reading, writing, etc. My son's first grade teacher was great. The principal always informed the parents about upcoming events. Looking forward to meeting more teachers and spending the next 4 yrs at Washington.

I have my child go to this school for 2 years now and am very satisfied. The teachers are caring and the teacher/student ratio is good. My son was in the ESL for some time and I can really see the effort taken by his teacher to correct his mistakes and bring him up to speed. Any class early dismissals are announced clearly and well in advance. Overall I am very satisfied with school

Since both my children have attended Washington Elementary the teachers have always shown great Initiative in the children and their education. I am proud of the teachers at Washington for making it easier for the parents and the children to understand their curriculum. It is a difficult task to educate other people s children, but they have shown that they can work through cultural diversity and educate all children equally and for that I am proud to have sent my child for the past four years to Washington and even though this is the last year my child will attend this great school the teachers and the faculty will surely be missed......... I would hope that the new principal be successful in her endeavors

The teachers at this school are great and the principal takes great leadership. Since the principal has changed I have no clue what is going on. Thank you for reading my review on Washigton Elemantary School.

My son is lucky to have great teachers in his entire years @ Washington School. He's been here since Kindergarten & this is his last year at this school. He's an excellent student..thanks to all his teachers. PTO did a great job for the students activities & school projects. The concern I have is the traffic..some parents drive like maniacs.

I like this school... except for the traffic safety... the parents are complete animals when it comes to driving safe, they have very little respect for the crossing guards. The parents need to take a class about crosswalk education! Besides that issue, I really do like Washington School.

I'm shocked the Great Schools rating is not higher. My son has had a wonderful experience in Washington, he scores advanced proficient on the NJ Ask and his teacher was amazing this year. All of his teachers have been great but they seem to get better and better.

My son is graduating from this school after 6 years. He has had such a wonderful experience. It seems that his teachers got better and better. I like this school because the teachers enjoy working with the children and they all work closely with the PTO. Many attend afterschool events which is a highlight for all the children. Keep up the good work!
