My son attended kindergarten at a different school in the district and continued it be in reading. He was still at a level A at the end of the year. We finally moved into Washington's grid for first grade. He was able to receive the specialized attention and let the first grade reading at a level J. He was show that with practice comes great reward. I couldn't have ask for a better school to be in. The teachers and staff are incredible. Washington is by far the Best school in Minot.
Washington is an incredible school with wonderful and caring teachers and a top-notch academic program. Please don't be fooled by the low 'Great Schools Rating'; at one time, it was a 9/10. The difference has to be the new Common Core and testing procedures in place. The school is amazing and we couldn't be happier that we chose it for our child. One of the top two schools in Minot.
My son is a kindergarten student and he loves it. I have been around the state to many different elementary schools and Washington is by far the best. The teachers are wonderful, and the setting makes me wish I could go back to school.
