Washburn Schools are green and healthy, have high academic standards in which art and music are valued as an integral part of the curriculum. Our school campus contains a garden, an excellent nutrition program, a school forest is located within walking distance. Our teachers/staff are supportive; parents are involved at the school.
We recently moved to Washburn from Madison and have had an excellent experience with our two children @ this school. The campus is beautiful, the lunches are excellent and we have teachers who are intelligent and obviously care. This place and it's people are great I would highly recommend Washburn to young families!
I love all the 'green' stuff going on at our school. They eliminated cardboard milk cartons, in favor of a milk dispensing machine! Also, my son's first grade teacher no longer sends home snack calendars or end-of-the-week notes, she has them on her website. Brilliant!!! This school rocks in lots of other departments, too.
I attended Washburn, and I love the fact that my kids can experience the small tight knit atmosphere of Washburn too. I really love the fact that my children want to go to school and learn. The teachers are helpful and supportive. The staff keeps everything running smoothly. I am in complete support of our school being a 'green school.' The kids are not just learning academics they are being taught life lessons. Go Washburn!!
We are a small school in northern Wisconsin & have implemented many changes to our school over the last couple years. We have implemented gardening into our curriculum & have one of the best food programs in the north woods. We also have a very well rounded group of teachers and parents who help implement arts & music, along with the core classes. We have even had square dances. We have been able to provide the children with Missoula Childrens theater for the last several years. It's a great place to live & thrive.
