I was a student there for K -8 and I wouldn't have changed anything about it . Although it was a long time ago Hawthorne is a great town with great people. You can do a whole lot worse, Washington School is and always will be a great school.

This school really impressed us. We moved into the area 6 months ago and couldn't be happier with "the little school on the hill" as everyone seems to call it. My daughters teachers are very attentive, knowledgable, and on top of my child's progress. There are many activities, events, and programs that we have already enjoyed. The parents are very involved and the school intergrates our involvement well. I was nervous at first of the change, however the staff at the school has been great. There are 3 schools in Hawthorne and I was told many different ideas about which school was best. From talking to other parents, I think the Hawthorne school district is just great all together, and I am happy my daughter (age 7) is thriving at Washington.

I have 3 children in Washington School. I could not ask for a more caring school. From the Principal, to the teachers, the paras, even the custodians are helpful (lets not even get into how much Mr B is being missed right now!). The PTO sets up so many great programs. I think it is great!

I have been a parent at Washington School for 6 years, our eldest has gone on to the middle school and our 2nd child is still there. From my first day at Washington I could tell how special it was, the teacher, principal and head custodian all knew my daughter and who she belonged to and knew her by name at the end of the first day. She did very well, academically and socially. Washington School is one of the smaller schools in the district and this promotes a very family like feeling from the principal, teachers and staff. Our children have excelled at Washington. The PTO is very dedicated to the children and enriching their education at Washington.

You could not wish for a better school. The teachers are fantastic and so dedicated. The Principal and other support staff are fantastic also. My son will be going into the 3rd grade, he has been a strait A student for the past three years and he scored in the 90% tile for the NJ state test. This school is great!!!

This school is great. Our son attends this school and has been a straight A student for the past three years and part of PATH. We can not wait for our other children to start their education at this school. The administration and faculty are very devoted and supportive in furthering the education of the children. All said, education starts at home.

Washington has been our children's 2nd home for 6 years now. It is a very family-oriented school. Parents are encouraged to be active, either on-site or at home. The principal knows each students name, and greets them each morning. The head custodian also knows each child's name, and Mr. B. is a favorite of all. My children have participated in the PATH program, and have been given appropriate supplemental work. The band program has grown, with almost the entire fifth grade participating. They lost their amazing band teacher, but hopefully, the new one will keep the enthusiasm up. All in all, I think its the best school in Hawthorne.
