It was a large school that you could find all kinds of people in. They have some of the best resources and a large amount of things you can get involved with. The school is diverse in socioeconomic status and academic levels. I enjoy the large size of the school. You get to experience and talk to many different people, while also being able to know everyone in the school. You have people who are very smart and excel in academics, passionate about the arts, and great athletes. They offer many opportunities to choose your path and find what you like, with the large amount of classes and clubs they offer. High school is a place where people are often trying to find their interests and where they fit in, and this school definitely allows you to do so.

Washington Township High School has many electives to choose from. The school also has many wonderful teachers, yet they lack teachers that actually help the students. The school is very biased with some students and sports and it's clearly obvious too. I want this school to spread the wealth to other sports than football so they aren't left in the dark. I want this school to find teachers that can teach the kids and engage them so they won't fail due to boredom.
Washington Township High has been an amazing experience. Between the amazing teachers, clubs, activities, sports, and support from the entire administration. Township high is an amazing school for college readiness. Their academics are higher and the teachers are amazing at explaining the materials thoroughly. You will not be left out in this school I can tell you that much! The only thing I would truly want to change is their scheduling. I would rather have a block schedule rather than 8 periods a day for 42 minutes. Other than that Washington Township High is a positive learning environment!
