I agree with most that is being said about Washington School. Unfortunately, it does not get the credit it deserves. My daughter was an advanced student who transferred to Washington from Boston.

I would rate this school as having a quality program for students. The administration and teachers care. They are very particular about expectations and helpful if there is a problem.

The problem has been constant battles with the school administration. They do not encourage parents to participate ...  Read more

Washignton is a great school although lacking in a culturally sensitive staff and curriculum. The ratio breakdown of Blacks/Whites is incorrect. There are more Whites in the school than Blacks making the percentage breakdown biased. The way it is broken down indicates that there are an equal distribution ...  Read more

Before my son attended Washington we lived in Massachusetts and the class sizes were almost double what they are at Washington.
