    "Overall, a well-organized school. Good academic opportunities, and a balanced curriculum with nice options like testing out of classes and school support of clubs/sports. However, guidance department was terrible, inefficient, and the discipline style didn't really allow for any kind of fun. Discipline deferred to negative punishment rather than negative reinforcement. Students were not permitted to go off campus for lunch, we had about one recreational assembly per year, and rules on clothing and electronics were ridiculously stringent to the point of ignoring more severe problems, like drug use on school property. Students were not permitted to be on school property before/after hours unless accompanied by staff. Felt the lack of high-school culture deeply."

    "What I really like about Washington is its extracurricular and its openness to students who want to try new things. The band program is absolutely fantastic and open to anyone who wants to try to be in band. Some of the teachers are absolutely fantastic while some are not so much. In terms of college readiness, I do not feel that prepared for college and wish I had known things ahead of time before deadlines."

    "I liked most of the teachers at Washington high school. I disliked how strict the school could be at times. Washington high school does not have a lot of school spirit, and the students are not given much of a voice."

    "Washington is definitely better than Jefferson, although still pretty lackluster due to it being underfunded. Academics: changed often, not enough niche classes, but great honors and AP programs Diversity: Very diverse, although slight majority of white males Teachers (only experience with Honors and AP, sorry): friendly but fairly strict. Tries their best with what's given College readiness: Pushed to research, well-off in classes Clubs & Activities (not much experience due to executive dysfunction): Fantastic art club and music department! Safety: some verbal harassment, little physical, some drugs, but nowhere near Jefferson's Administration: very... involved? Resources & Facilities: severely underfunded, otherwise fantastic"

    "I've lived in Jefferson County my entire life, and I have little to no complaints. I would have to say that the only negative things I can think of are that, when I went to Washington High School, I never really felt as if they were properly preparing us for our college years and beyond that - into our adult years AKA the real world. I wish I would have had more opportunities to learn about real-life tasks and issues that our American people haveon a day-to-day basis. I.e. I would have liked to have learned about finances, insurance, filing taxes properly, budgeting, and so much more. Other than that, I enjoyed me entire academic Carter in the Jefferson County School system."
