This school has changed my life. With out it i wouldn't be challenged enough, and would simply be bored with school, probably leading me to do reckless, dangerous things. Washington is a great school, the teachers push you to the limit and always are open to one-on-one time with the kids. Love it!

The attendance ...  Read more

This is my sons 2nd year at King Elementary. I have been extremely impressed at the difference between this school and other elementary schools in the area.
