Safety is a HUGE issue at this school. Parking is basically street only. There is not even proper disabled parking for parents/children. A child has been hit by a car within the first month of school. We find the Steps Program to be shaming. My social kindergartener refuses to go to school, saying her teacher doesn't love her. WOW. A very upsetting way to start kindergarten.
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!
Great school! Wonderful caring and supportive staff! The teachers really work hard to do what they can for each individual. Parent involvement is fabulous as well! I am very glad that my child has a safe and caring learning environment.
