    "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."
