School Highlights

Washington Elementary School was established in 1953 in 8.2 acres overlooking the Pacific Ocean and the Channel Islands.

A program of academic and personal goals focuses student attention on behaviors important for developing well-rounded citizens of tomorrow. Each month there is an academic and a personal goal. One month may highlight perseverance (personal) and reading (academic). Students all have the same definition for perseverance and discuss it in class during the month. At the end of the month, specific students are acknowledged in a school assembly for excellence in the academic and the personal areas.
