Auburn Washburn Unified School District Reviews

Washburn Rural has been my home for several years now. I have grown up in a family who was rooted in the school district and we have always been very involved. I am now a senior and I have been able to leave my own mark on the school district and our community. The major thing I have learned while attending Washburn Rural is that being involved is what makes every experience worthwhile. Through this experience, I have found myself as a person and was able to affect my community as a whole. Washburn has given me several opportunities that I could not be more thankful for. I will forever be proud to say that I am a Jr. Blue!

I have been attending this school district for my entire life. I know that because of the experiences that I have had to prepare me through this school district, I will be ready to take on the real world. With world- class academics and a club or sport to match everyone, Auburn Washburn strives to provide a voice and the best and personalized experience to all students as we try to embrace exceptional education. There is no major changes that need be made to this already wonderful school district.
I liked how much opportunity there was within this district like the arts programs, sports, clubs, and other after-school activities, but I did not like how it seemed political in terms of money and families who donate or contribute more then recieving more benefits for their students.
