My autistic child has attended this school. Washington Elementary School has a great special education program. I have been very impressed at the teachers and the progress my son has made.

Our two children have attended Washington since kindergarten. We have been very impressed with the teaching staff - they are thoughtful, caring, and knowledgable. Teachers go out of their way to help, even when your child isn't in their class. The school has a welcoming atmosphere - parents feel comfortable visiting their children's classes and the principal is very approachable.

Fabulous! It has been a wonderful experience at Washington Elementary for my daughter, both socially and academically. We have enjoyed all three of her teachers thoroughly and expect only great things in the future. Our current principal is very personable and open to suggestions from students, parents and staff. There is also a very well organized PTSA that shows strong family and community support for our kids.

I am very impressed with Washington Elementary so far. I have a child in Kindergarten and am very impressed with the high expectations of her and the caring supportive environment. The curriculum is very focused and intentional, the teachers work together, and I have been kept very informed about my child's progress. Great job!

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Washington used the Measurements of Student Progress (MSP) to test students in reading and math in grades 3 through 8, in writing in grades 4 and 7, and in science in grades 5 and 8. The MSP is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Washington. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.
