Washington Community High School Reviews
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!
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!
My experience at WCHS was great! I really liked my teachers and had good relationships with them. I was able to take college credit classes in high school, which gave me a head start on my college career. Overall, I feel I received a high quality education and made good friendships and relationships during my high school years.
