While this school and the Illinois school system in general aren't the greatest, especially compared to my previous district, it wasn't a bad school at all. Students were encouraged to participate outside of school, and it was generally really fun - especially the week-long 8th grade field trip to Lorado Taft, everyone's favorite thing about Washington.

The doors are always locked and the front office controls everyone entering/exiting. There are security cameras in most halls, but there are also large windows all around the school that are usually open during the day due to the school's complete lack of AC that are extremely easy to climb through. A tiny little 5th grader broke into the band room that way during a concert since the teacher was MIA.
The hardest part about being part of a sports team at Washington is our lack of athletic students versus all the schools around us. Especially in basketball and track, the MUCH higher percentage of black kids at our opposing schools is enough to crush us in most every sport. Regardless of the lack of talent - it's a "smart" school - sports are still fun to participate in.
