Washington Elementary School Reviews
My student is in second grade at Washington. He has been there since K. I am very pleased with the staff, many teachers that have been there for years, and some great younger teachers as well. I find the new principal - formerly from Chipman Middle - wonderful! She has brought a sense of excitement and more structure than before. I love the diversity at this school, as my child is white and it is so great there are children from all over the world that are enrolled here. The PTA is growing and in need of parent involvement. I feel our public schools really need our help, and one way is by keeping our kids in them and changing them by being involved.
