    Welcome to Washington! Everyone here is committed to growth, mutual respect, and a drive to strive for the common goal of being the best we can be.  I could not be more proud to be associated with such an amazing team of students, parents, and staff.  There is a wonderful legacy here of common purpose, identity, and core.  Washington students are involved in many activities that  support the school and community.  I welcome you to investigate Washington...and discover why we believe in  Dignity..Respect.. Achievement..for all.
