I cannot be happier with my family's experience at the Washington School!!! The school felt like home as soon as I walked in. My children loved their teachers from pre-K to 4th grade. It is a very strong school academically and the dedication of each and every teacher is a reason for celebration in my opinion. During our first few years in the school, we were constantly hearing rumors about the school closing and then Mrs. Cunningham appeared and it was a game changing moment for the Washington School. She fought for this school tooth and nail! Soon we got a new roof, new boiler, and new windows... She still didn't get tired and we got new fencing around the school and a whole new renovated bathroom!!! I have spent a lot of time inside the school helping whenever possible or necessary and these students are kept busy the entire day. The school might be small but the effective use of every inch of the school is amazing and the living proof of that is the amazing Mr. Z. He is one of the best PE teachers I have ever seen and my kids absolutely adore him. To top it off, the school has one of the BEST MCAS score in the district!!!!! And that is a FACT for so many years that always makes me wonder "how do these teachers do it?" The Washington School is Lowell's rare gem, hidden, formed by caring, professional, and experienced people working hard for every single kid I have known there. We are proud to be part of it!

Great school! I have been working at the Washington school for 2 years now and since the beginning I have noticed nothing but the utmost respect towards everyone. The principal is caring, understanding and very empathetic towards all the children attending the school, and their parents. I have seen her go above and beyond for families. The entire staff comes together to help anyone who is in need. I am honored to be a part of such a dedicated group at the Washington school!

It's awful! I never have been so humiliated in my life! My child was being bullied and instead of helping me they retaliated and now all of a sudden I'm getting reports home! Where are the notes home when my child was hurt? He can home with marks!! So please be careful and talk to your children! The principle is not warming or caring! FYI they teachers/principle office gets FREE pizza while we pay 2.05 for one slice for our children!
