Washington Elementary School District Reviews

At my school district, it’s honestly one of the best places I’ve ever been to. Not only is it excellent in the Academic area. It also excels in safety and discipline. My school district may have some downs, like not letting us bring siblings on field trips. It’s a place we’re I was able to make friends with out any hesitation. No bullying has happened to me so far. Nor any teasing that makes me feel dejected. Mostly, bullying is stopped. There is never a bully problem or fights at my school. The food is not 5 star quality, but it’s good enough to not make us gag. WESD also offers us many school activities, and many contest to win spectacular prizes. I’ve never been so lucky to attend the WESD.

We are new to the district this year. No enrollment fees and all of the kid's supplies (including backpacks) were donated to the school. Also, lunch and breakfast is free. Smallish classes (approx 25-30) per teacher.
The teacher are very nice and help my children learn. I have had a great experience sending my children to school within this district.
