    "Although it is true that parents are "cliquey" who cares. I'm more concerned for my child's education. Anytime there has been a problem, I've gone to my child's team of teachers. If I coudln't find a satisfactory resolution (which was rare) I would escalate and at that point the principal and Asst. principals would get involved, stay involved until all was resolved. My child has been on honor roll every single semester at GWMS and it is due to the hard work and dedication he receives from his teachers and his IEP. LOVE this school and can only hope this HS years are as good as GWMS has been."

    "My son is in his sixth year at Washington. Yes, some of the parents are too close with lifelong friends too really get to know, and some parents are "cliquey" but that in no way impacts the quality education offered by this school. My son has an IEP and has revived more than necessary in terms of academic, social and emotional support. The teachers and staff are truly a community and a team. Extracurricular activities such as the talent show, parties for parents and children and the PTO are exceptional. Hot lunch, pizza day, safety patril, walkathon, field day, outdoor education trip and field trips have a balance of fun and responsibility. Is this school or its families perfect? No. Is any? If someone ever feels left out, parent or child, the solution is to join a group that they are interested in or volunteer to be a crossing guard. That's how I met people when I was new six years ago."

    "Excellent school, caring teachers and supportive parents. Not sure why some of these posts are worried about which other parents are being nice to them or looking at them funny. In the 10 years we have had children attending this school I have never encountered anything but pleasant, supportive parents and exceptional staff. I would (and do) recommend this neighborhood and this school to anyone and everyone. I will be forever grateful to the teachers and staff at this school for helping shape my children into kind, compassionate and intelligent young people."

    "My son currently attends Kindergarten at George Washington Elementary. He is exceeding beyond what I'd imagined him going into this. I believe they work hard at teaching the children above and beyond just academics, but also responsibility, kindness, etc. However, the staff tend to be extremely judgmental and the parents are very cliquey. They should teach the parents some of what they're teaching the children. My son missed a total of 10 days (not in a row) due to multiple bronchiolar infections as well as streptococcus, was pumped with antibiotics the whole time, and they sent a letter home basically stating it was wrong. The PTO sounds great, except for the fact that it makes you not want to join due to the unwelcome feeling and dirty looks you receive being "the new one around town", So I backed away as far as I could. Educationally the school is great, but other than that, I've felt bad most of the time my son has been there due to the adults."

    "There are not enough positive words to describe this amazing school. All 3 of our children have attended or are attending Washington and it is second to none. From the principal to the teachers to the resource teachers and the teachers aides, the positive learning environment makes sending my kids off to school each day a joy. We feel very fortunate to have this school and these educators working with our children every day. As a parent of a child in the "gifted" program as well as a child in resource for a learning disability and ADD, I have had wide exposure to the breadth and depth of the staff at this school and have yet to come across anyone that is not completely professional, compassionate, intelligent and caring. Simply the best."
