Teachers are horrible! Other than the lack of motivation from the staff it's alright. People think their are only unintelligent people that go to washington, which is false. They don't stand out because the bad behavior is only rewarded. The people who are brilliant are robbed of a good education not just from students but from the staff. Students at Washington students shouldn't just be taught material to take a test. They should be taught to learn! And help better the community.

I like my school because it is a small school, and I like the uniform policy because everyone looks the same, and I don’t have to spend much money on new clothes. Then, I don’t like the uniform policy because we cannot wear shorts. Also, I like that the classes are short, so they get done much faster. The things I don’t like about my school are: the misbehaving kids, the food, that is why I bring my own lunch every day! Most of the teachers doesn’t make it enjoyable, then the teachers don’t know how to control their classes. These are things that I like and dislike about my school.
Washington High School is a wonderful school in terms of academics and sports. The teachers actually care about the students' education, and are very reasonable with coordinating due dates in relation to what the students' may have doing on outside of school and in other classes. The environment is safe and healthy. The only thing I would like to see change is the Cheer program. The cheerleaders are fantastic and full of school spirit, however they are not granted with the same respect as other athletes. They do not have a place to do their homework after school or just a place to hang out until practice or a game. That would be the only flaw of Washington High School, and it is easily fixable.
