    "Unfortunately, leadership is lacking. Pulled my daughter out after 4th grade and sent her to Olinda."

    "This school only offers a sub-par dual immersion program. Some of the teachers are competent while others are not. So you must hope your child is assigned the higher performing teacher. There is little teacher, parent or student support. Leadership is lacking and there is no synergistic approach to student learning between teachers or the day and after school programs. Don't expect any enrichment or support for high performing or average students - no literacy night, art night, meet and greet with principal, no math night, no science fair, no attendance assemblies, no student awards, no teacher awards, no spelling bee. If it were not for dual immersion most of the parents would not enroll their children into the school. You sacrifice so much for language immersion. The PTA host most of the events but the principal doesn't attend, even when it is at the school."

    "Qualified, dedicated, enthusiastic teacher retention is low. No leadership. The afterschool program is disorganized. Bathrooms are unsanitary. Sometimes your child is assigned to a competent teacher and sometimes they are not. My son would have been enrolled in the 6th grade class there this year but the program is compromised after 3rd grade. Too bad. The former principal was a gem."

    "Washington seems to have two very different schools on one campus: Dual Immersion (bilingual) and English only. Unfortunately, the English only classes are crowded (33 students to 1 teacher) with no aides and almost no volunteers in upper grades. Teachers deal with broken desks, windows and doors and are often missing state-mandated education materials (including textbooks). My child didn't have all her math books and materials until early December. Many of the teachers are excellent, but outside class the atmosphere is one of constant bullying which is tolerated by the principal. Even students who start physical fights, shout racist and sexist slurs, and throw things at adults are allowed back in school the next day. There's no clear code of conduct for the entire school and teachers are on their own. The free after school program (different from Y-Care) is plagued with the same discipline problems and high staff turnover. There have also been too many intruders on campus, including men who aren't parents or staff. We didn't feel safe there and were very disappointed."

    "Washington's dual immersion program is a gem! My son is entering 6th grade this Fall and has been in the program since kindergarten. He has had one terrific teacher after another -- the program attracts not only seasoned professionals who have continued to build their skills as dual immersion educators, but we have also had inspired, energetic Teach for America teachers who have been terrific. This is a great program and school for families who want their children to be bilingual and biliterate."
