This school is absolutely horrible! The teachers do not do anymore work than they have too. They are not held accountable for their actions. The principal does not listen to any concerns. I was referred to the Board of Education, who turns around and gives me back to principal. This school is a joke.

There are many imperfecrions but they are some good things. There are good leadership qualities in the school but they just don't function right because of the type of atmosphere Washington has. Another thing that concerns me is the uniform policy that is set in place. This policy causes student to be ...  Read more

There are many good teachers at Washington High School. Unfortunately some under-achieving students make it hard for the rest of the student body to learn what is being taught to them. There also seems to be a lack of Parent involvement with students UNTIL there is an issue that comes up. Although ...  Read more
