It's not a bad school but it isn't the best, for the most part students are separated and they don't interact much with each other because of the split between general ed and APP classes. Teachers are very good for the most part but most of them have left the school. Students aren't generally the best behaved. And there was a lot of drama in the time that I was there. It has good programs but they're not available to everyone. I tried to get into harder classes because my classes were not academically challenging for me but they didn't allow my because there was "not enough space" but there were clearly some white students who were able to get in with no problem... that's all I have to say.

I had one teacher in seventh grade who was clearly not qualified for her position, but that may have simply been the lack of teaching experience.

However, all my other teachers seemed as though they at least loved their field. My band teacher was certainly amazing. We had one of the best middle school bands in the entire state! I loved all my language arts and social studies teachers, especially my eighth grade social studies teacher. He had one of the most effective teaching styles I've ever seen, and he was also one of the teachers who knew what was going on with everyone.
The school schedules frequent assemblies speaking on topics such as bullying and security. PAWS was the program they used during my time there; it acted similarly to a class that shone a light on social situations middle schoolers may have to deal with, and how to prevent them, or how to take action to stop the situations.

The school nurses are very kind. You can even get your vaccinations at the school health center.

Washington MS is not located in the safest neighborhood ever, but the teachers do watch out for us, and we practice shelters-in-place, as well as lockdowns consistently.
