Washington High School is a smaller school, but that makes it great for getting involved and easily finding people you connect with. I was personally in at least sport during each season and I know of countless clubs my friends were involved in. I also believe the teachers make Washington High School a place you WANT to learn. They connect so well with the students and are willing to help you in any circumstance. One of the biggest changes I would like to see are for classes to work on college preparations. Some classes were incredibly easy and I was blown away by the amount of information presented in college with no idea how to properly study for them. Overall, love the school and love going back to visit.

I honestly loved Washington High School. I would recommend it to anyone. However, you need to be involved at WHS to have a great time there. I know people who weren't involved didn't enjoy it as much, but I was very involved and loved every minute. Whether that was cheering on the side lines of a football game, performing in a play in the auditorium, or wrecking people's ankles on the soccer field. Washington High School gave me so many opportunities for education and activities wise.
Washington High School is a very good school to go to. This school is very safe and is small enough that you know everybody but big enough that you can have your own space. I have been going to the Washington Community School District all my life and I would have to say the best thing is the teachers, they are always willing to help their students.
