We are so thankful for the outstanding education and enrichment our son received from Washington Community High School. Of course you will hear and read about their athletic programs - and they are outstanding - but, the value that this school and community place on the arts is phenomenal. From theatre to marching band to art to choir to multiple band categories, you name it, the experience is unparalleled in the Peoria area and rivals the best in the state. There truly is something for everyone at Washington. The opportunity to find your passion and grow tremendously in that field is the greatest attribute of this school. We are forever grateful!

I liked that Washington High School had so many outlets and options for the students. So many teachers have provided a safe place for their students over the years and have remained up to date in their accomplishments passed graduation. The administration is looked at differently by a lot of students, but in my personal opinion, they tend to not think through things in the best way possible. Overall, the high school experience at Washington is average, but the teachers are what really made a difference in mine and so many others lives.
Attending high school here has been alright. I feel as though there policies on dealing with mental health and suicide are extremely weak. They don’t have a solid plan for construction during the school year and I feel like the administration wastes a lot of money. However, most of the staff are amazing people who have taught me so much about the world and I could not ask for a better high school!
