Washington High School Reviews

Washington definitely opened only so many doors for me. I started as a freshman extremely introverted but the staff and students were so welcoming that I worked my way up to be the spirit leader captain and joined the highest performing arts classes! There’s definitely a lot of parent involvement activities and only so many people that could help you whether it’s homework, your mentality, colleges and so on. At Washington, I learned how to face reality and will continue to take what I learned here into the real world, college. The school is very underrated for its greatness, the students are kind and there’s very rarely any issues here. I’m proud to say I’m part of the class of 2020 and will definitely be coming back to visit! Thank you to my Ramily for sculpting me into the person I am today!

Washington High School has given me the best high school experience ever. Starting freshman year, the environment was so warm and welcoming; there were barely any "cliques," everyone was just friends! There's tons of clubs and sports on campus that allow something for everyone to be involved in. The campus is so diverse, and that gives such an interesting outlook on life; especially when exploring different cultures. The academics are also amazing, with great teachers and award winning AP teachers! I have always been supported by a plethora of teachers who care about my college readiness, personal life, and my future in general!
My experience with Washington High School is pretty good. The staffs and faculties is very supportive and respectful towards the students. They spend time with the student if they need help. The thing that I feel is a drawback of the school is the opportunities for university and college which seems to be less. Maybe the school does not have much exposure towards vibrant electives or college classes. The school should imply more college classes for students who wish to go to university which will be beneficial. Washington also gives a bunch of homework everyday, increasing a huge stress among AP students. Overall, the teachers are doing a great job.
