Metropolitan School District of Washington Township Reviews
Washington township schools have been fantastic from Kindergarten through high school. The opportunities for student academics as well as extracurricular activities are endless. Everyone can find their niche, especially at the high school level. From a wide selection of sports to academics to arts and music, there is something for everyone! In addition, there is also the J Everett Light Center for students to begin career development at the high school level. If college is the plan, then the opportunities for college classes and credits will help both students and parents begin this college journey.
North Central is a very good school for a public school. My experience has been good overall. The one negative thing I would say is that the school culture is extremely left leaning and a majority of the students (a loud and outspoken group of students) aren't tolerant of center or right of center ideas. This isn't the schools fault, but the culture in the school isn't something I find very appealing. The students who do have right wing views are often socially excluded which isn't great. Diversity of skin color is huge, but diversity of thought is not. If you want to get good grades in advanced classes, you have to seek out the help, and some teachers don't like to help (I assume laziness).
Washington township is a very good school district overall. The entire district is an IB world school, meaning that there are certain criteria that teachers must do each year. The music and arts department is amazing compared to other public schools. The majority of teachers enjoy working there and the district is relatively liberal. There is very little engineering and STEM related support from the district currently but it is slowly growing.
