Washington Community School District Reviews

Washington Community School Districtl has great facilities ranging from the bathrooms and newly built auditorium. Their musical and arts departments are great place to study any type of music. The food is very good and the ladies in the kitchen are some of the sweetest people you will ever meet. One major problem I had is the biases by teachers. Specifically, some teachers have political biases that they claim they don't have. These same teachers are not open to diversity and new opinion of anyone that disagrees with them. However, on the other hand in the terms of college readiness Washington Community School District excels in preparing students for college.

Washington prepared me to succeed in college as well as in the real world. Both the school and community are so great I couldn't wait to move back to live and raise our kids in the community. Brand new high school, brand new 7.5 Million auditorium, brand new childcare center, 1:1 for everyone, Technology, technology, technology, almost every athletic facility is brand new or recently renovated and the teachers are the best!
Overall, the schools in the district are great. There have always been issues at the middle school, so more authority is needed. At the high school level, some teachers are newer and do not know everything that they should, so some students feel as though they are not well prepared for college.
