When I first started teaching at WPHS, I was scared! The students seemed rowdy and the teachers seemed unwelcoming. Here I am 5 years later and still there. I love this school. The majority of the teachers at Washington Preparatory are there because of their love for the students, and many will go above ...  Read more

As a new teacher, I learned how to become a strong, effective teacher at WPHS. The students are amazingly unique and talented; I miss them greatly.

As a senior at George Washington Prep, I've seen the transition from tracks, to tradition, now to block scheduling. A few things have changed for the better. I have books for everyone of my classes and I'm finally being challenged. But my biggest concern now is what will happen to those of us who ...  Read more

This school is horrible, meaning disorganized, no discipline, lack in teacher - student relationship, and many other things. Most of the kids here are here because they were forced to go to school by their parents. To send your child here is a mistake and a last resort your child would not succeed in ...  Read more
