If you are considering moving to this area and have school aged children RUN...don't walk elsewhere. This school is run by small town bureaucrats that are very unwelcoming to newcomers. They concentrate on meaningless ideals and have no idea what these kids actually need to succeed in life outside a small community. Washington HS has not met the AYP in a number of years and the principal is more concerned with her own personal agenda than the well being of the children. There is absolutely zero communication with the parents and her lack of leadership and knowledge has been exhibited on a number of occasions such as allowing children to miss buses when sporting events have been cancelled and she didn't have enough insight to verify facts before the end of the day and shrugs her shoulders and says I didn't know. News flash...it is your job to know! If this is the best school in WV it is no wonder WV is 48th in country for education!

Wonderful school! I have noticed care, concern, empathy of the all the staff towards the young men who attend. The curriculum is geared toward college preparations, the athletics department is growing and the atmosphere is always positive. I am very grateful my kids have been able to attend such a wonderful learning institution.

What an awful place. We left this area a few years ago and I never knew how bad I had it until I left. I thought I respected the school at the time but it turns out I was just trying to justify the bad education my son was getting. There was very little other than football and basket ball offered in the way of extra curricular activities. Bored kids equal trouble and let me tell you, I know there still is trouble there. My son has great extra cirricular activities where we are, his GPA has sky rocketed, I have seen support staff actually support students. Not there, his guidance counselor was very unkind. If you are considering moving here, don't. It was the worst decision I ever made. Stay in Virginia - schools are much better, resources are much better, more for kids to be involved in. Just beware.

This school is such a great place. It's clean, fresh, and bright. The environment is nurturing and expectations for students are high. This is the only high school in the county where the principals regularly check in on substitute teachers to make sure they are doing alright with the class and answer any questions they might have. Discipline is fair and even-handed. The music program is strong and has dedicated personnel and band boosters.

Washington High school is the best run school in the state of WV. They care about their students, parents and staff. They go above and beyond to make sure the learning enviorment is top notch for the students @ WHS. They have a great graduation rate as well as college rate. I wouldn't want my child to go to ANY other school in the state!

At Washington academics is the number one priority. It has a great learning environment and everyone wants the students to achieve and reach their individual potential. Many teachers go beyond what they are called to do to re-teach and also provide confidence that each student may take with them into the future.

I am an employee here and enjoy being a part of the awesome Patriot pride that is shown during the school day as well as in our community. Washington is a true and positive atmosphere for our students to help prepare them as mature and successful adults.

The school is very well run and organized. The principal keeps everything the way it should be and truly cares about her kids and the staff. She supports all organizations, sports and clubs equally and encourages others to do the same.
