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 had to pleasure of learning from some of the best teachers in the state at Auburn Washburn. Their approach to teaching with many different techniques allows students to figure out their own learning style, helping students succeed later on in life. The only thing I would like to see change is to have more support available particularly for students who suffer from mental illnesses, as these schools stimulate immense amounts of stress for their students as they urge them towards success.
Washburn Rural high school is a school that helps students excell academically through their high expectations of the students. Staff and faculty are genuinely invested in the benefit of the students. My favorite part about Washburn Rural is the opportunities for leadership and individuality their music program (specifically Band) offers, which promotes success for students in their post-secondary education/career
