Washington Elementary School. I can't at all say enough good things about it. It's wonderful. Teachers make sure that everyone is involved, the principal couldn't be nicer or more supportive in everything anyone does. They atmosphere at Washington is top notch. Teachers never miss a beat if a child is struggling. Everyone's always respecting one and other and this school is a big family. Washington offers art, physical education, music, library classes and spanish. I would recommend this school to anyone. Washington is just an amazing school and I couldn't be happier with it. It challenges the kids in a good way and never lets kids fall behind. The secretary is one of the best you could ever have. She takes her job very seriously and can juggle 20+ things at once. Overall, Washington is just an amazing school and I would recommend it to anyone who ever asked!

Last year I had 3 kids at Washington School and I've had children enrolled there for the past 6 yrs. I can't say enough good things about this school. The academics, activities, teachers and parent involvement are way better than I expected. This school does not get NEARLY the credit that it should....LOVE IT!

We are new to the school district having come from a nearby highly rated school district as well. But Washington provides excellent attention and the teachers are progressive but emphasize the basics of reading, writing, and mathematics. I suspect my kid(s) will continue to perform way above the state (& national) averages as a consequence. We are very happy in our decision.

Best Elementry School in Summit! The teachers are involved and really care. It's challenging...even for my future rocket scientist! The parents are the best group in Summit...very real people. I know a mother that just moved to town and she is in another school district. She says that of all the moms and children she meets she likes the Washington District the best. Summit is the best town in New Jersey. We moved on up from Short Hills. I meet so many people in the Washington School District that would never move from this school district, they all want to stay here. Once your kids experience it here, you'd never want them to leave. Simply the best of the best!

I've long since graduated from this elementary school, but now that my children are there, I can see that the quality of the teaching staff, volunteer system, and kids education are still top notch. This school provides an exemplary basis of knowledge for young ones future.

My son is a first grade at this school and has been since he was in preschool. (PreK and K is now being offered at Wilson School). I'm very happy with the quality of education he received there. Class instructions include Art in Class, Music, Spanish, Computer, in addition to Math, Reading, and Writing. Reading has also been a focus of the district for the past 2 years, and I'm pround to say my son is very comfortable reading chapter books (magic tree house series) by Christmas time. Parent involvment is also extremely high, and my son has made a lot of friends in class and on the playground. I would recommend this school to anyone who is considering Summit.

This school will no longer offer any language courses K-3rd grade. There will no longer by music offered to the kindergarten. Other programs are also being cut. There has been erosion of programs at this school for the last few years - ironic, since there has been tremendous influx of tax dollars during the same time. The level of parent involvement is very high and my daughter enjoys school at WAS.

My daughter has been in Washington School from K through the 1st grade. She loves teachers, she loves everyday activities, because of the warm and friendly atmosphere in class. From my side I want to note that there is special attention to each student, though there is no program for advanced children. The first grade includes Spanish, Art and Music classes. This school does not offer an afterschool program. I would recommend it to anybody who moves in the area. Your kids will gain all necessary skills for their age.
