Principal's Message with calligraphy pen

Welcome to Washington Elementary, I am honored to be part of your child's academic success.  We are a school of approximately 500 students in grades Kindergarten to 6th Grade.

 Our staff is committed to the academic, behavioral and social well being of all our students.  Our site aligns instruction to the new Common Core/Arizona Academic Standards.  We provide a diverse curriculum including MesaREADS/Dibels, math, social studies, science, physical education, art, music and library skills.

 Your child will have the option to participate in a strong music program in orchestra or band in the intermediate grade levels.  Washington also offers the Kid's Corner After-School Program for after school care.


Our teachers, specialists, and support personnel help create a warm learning environment for students in the classroom.  Our school grounds have a fantastic environment with mature trees, shade cover , gardens and individual building pods where classrooms are grouped by grade levels.  This provides common areas for staff to meet to discuss best practices, common core lessons, and data for improving student learning.  We believe that good teaching practices are directly connected to student success.


The Washington staff is committed to preparing students to become outstanding leaders and contributing members of our community.  We appreciate and support parent involvement in your child's education as well as your involvement in our school community.


Thank you for choosing our school!
