I know many think that this school is amazing, but it's not. One of my sons goes to Peoria Academy and the other goes here. I've been comparing homework, and the homework from Peoria Academy is much more challenging. Overall Peoria Academy is much better.

Washington Gifted School recognizes that gifted students need specialized education just as much as students with learning disabilities do. My child is challenged by the teachers at his school to think analytically as well as creatively and not to be satisfied with doing any less than his best.
