So far, it's been a great experience. My daughter started at CDC, now she is in Kinder garden. I've never heard her say anything negative about the school or the teachers. She loves going to school and I think the roll the teachers play in making sure the kids are not only learning but also feeling that they are at home it's one of the most important key factors to ensure a good academic performance and a fun learning experience for our little ones. Thank you to all of them!

As of 2014 things have improved greatly! I can't say enough good things about the new principal. He is so involved in every aspect. From running around helping parents with parking to saying hello to each child in classrooms. Since he's been there New programs have been added and Washington Elementary is now a Steam Magnet school. My kids love the school and they both have great teachers. My oldest son has been there since Kindergarten and is now in 3rd grade and we've seen how much this school has improved and we are happy there.

Horrible, there are bullies in this school. The administrative staff tends to find ways to cover it up and find excuses to save face. It is sad that many downtown parents have to find schools outside of our own jurisdiction. We live here, work here and pay the local taxes for our local school. Yet, we have to find charters and go on wait lists or choice out. This school receives a lot of good funding and has good partnerships with local businesses. Why can't they manage the issues at this school. Maybe they should hire a new principal. Many parents have had an issue with the principal.
