    "The school is underfunded, leading to programs such as the school band and art department's budgets being heavily cut. The band itself gets 1/5 of its promised funds. Every year we see the leave of several teachers for various reasons, whether they were fired for poor conduct as was the case with our AP Biology teacher for drinking on public grounds, or because they couldn't take the low budgets and unhelpful management, such as our AP Psych teacher who quit just after one week of taking on the class. We also had our IEP coordinator be 'persuaded to quit' after not meeting school standards and has been replaced with a far less qualified women who is not capable of being in charge of special needs kids. The best teachers generally come from the fine arts department, as they're dedicated to making sure the programs can run efficiently despite the severe budget cuts they recieve. Overall this school is poor in terms of it's performance and severely needs more funding and better staff."

    "Washington High School is an outstanding learning environment that prepares all students for college and beyond. While some may consider the school and administration to be strict, simply following the rules will earn you favor. I love Washington High School and would not want to go anywhere else!"

    "Love that there are rules that are enforced! The majority of the staff I have met all genuinely care about the students. I do wish that there was a more equitable distribution of funds among ALL the sports programs"

    "Many believe Washington is super strict, but when you stop listening to everyone else's opinions you'll realize it's an amazing school. A vast majority of the teachers are amazing and are very helpful. The atmosphere is just really phenomenal."

    "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."
