I've had the High School experience. I will be the first to admit yes I have skipped classes, I have had missing assignments, and I've failed tests. I have had bad days and cried, but that's high school. You fight with your friends, you think you don't like your teachers, but now as a senior I look back and I LOVE the staff and everyone at my school I regret wishing away all that stuff. Our staff is so friendly, we have the best janitors, they stop just to make sure you are having a good day. The ladies at the front desk, are the nicest people you could meet. Our sports team work their hardest at games/ practices. The only thing I wish I could change applies to all school, which is the threats we get to our school, because some people are scared to go to school and that shouldn't be how HS is. Washington is a great place, and I am glad I got to cheer for this school through the years!

Washington Union High School may be a smaller school in the area, but this school has provided so much for students academically and athletically. This school has brought a whole new community that you can trust and rely on. The staff and administrators are very connected with every student, from those who’re are having trouble in class to those who strive in class, all students get the same amount of support. Coaches and parents from this school have also made an impact to students, they brought positivity and support no matter the circumstance. In the little town of Easton California where this school is found, it has prepared teens for their bright and big future ahead of them all.
Washington High School has given me so many opppurtunities: joining multiple clubs, 3 Journalism classes, DECA, and the oppurtinity to go to Four Rivers Career Center. The school has many different options to choose from depending the field you are desired to fulfill.
