    "I think the hype about Burlingame having top rated schools is a misnomer. I believe it's something that is generated to keep the home prices high. The education is average. The math is laughable even with the change to Swun Math from Everyday Math (which was even worse!) If your child is good at math there is absolutely no room to advance a grade. It takes my child literally 1 minute to do the math homework, yet he is not allowed to advance to something more challenging. I've been frustrated and discouraged by the lack of understanding from the teachers. The community at Washington is what makes this school special. The parent involvement is incredible Some of the staff is very caring and involved, but other teachers yell at the children in class regularly. The school has had iPads available for the children since the beginning of the year, but they weren't used in our classroom until the end of February! Last year the kids didn't get into the computer lab until the year was almost over. Not all the schools in the district are like this, some are better than others. If this is one of the best school districts around then I wonder what the supposedly lesser districts are like!"

    "If i can give this school 0 stars I would. The undereducated teachers YELL at children to sit down, take a knee and STOP TALKING during end of recess. I am horrified to have heard this and witnessed it myself. If i could fire the teachers that I have seen personally yell at children like they are dogs I would. I have been tempted to record this, post it online so that other parents may see this. How do these adults feel better about themselves yelling at children not to talk??? Thats what children do, you rude demons. The principle seems to be oblivious to all of this or chooses to be just as cruel to the children. If this does not stop I will personally start recording and posting online the way the children are being yelled at and mistreated by staff. Think about this parents is this the type of person you would want as your nanny???"

    "Washington is an amazing school--from great teachers to huge community involvement to wonderful extra curricular enrichment offerings. Washington produces avid learners, great readers and responsible citizens. From the father/daughter dance to the science fair to the great art program to band to just everyday classes, I feel my kids are getting the best education around!"

    "Washington Elementary school is an outstanding school for our child. The Principal responds to incidents with results. The Teachers/Staff listen to the needs of the Students and partner with Parents to achieve the greatest education for each child's learning capability. The Parents are dedicated to the success of not only their child but, the whole school to better the community. The Burlingame community is one of the most outstanding communities in the Bay Area. Rich in culture, children/families from over 20+ countries, Washington Elementary is supported by an outstanding Superintendent and Burlingame School District. The business community of Burlingame takes a responsibility in the education of Burlingame youth and Burlingame sports. I am proud to be living in the Burlingame/Hillsborough community for over 20 years."

    "Our child is getting a good education here and loves the school and her teachers but I wonder if she could do better elsewhere. The administration is terrible at communication with divorced families. They claim their system only allows them to send info to 1 parent so notices and results about advanced testing, tardiness, etc. only get sent to 1 home. It would be very nice if the parents could share the info but the sad reality of divorce is that it's rarely amicable, and the information is used as a weapon.The school is clueless, even after conversations with the principal. The calendar on the website has not been updated yet this year and the school directory came home to parents in late Nov! Until last week we weren't even on the e-mail list so we had no clue about school events and happenings. This is a great community and if it weren't for the parents working so hard at fund raising, volunteering and oversight I shudder think what the experience here would be. There also seems to be a lot of rule setting based on the behavior of a few bad kids, why does everyone have to suffer, can't you discipline the offenders instead of treating the entire student body as a whole?"
