Washington Elementary School District


The Washington Elementary School District in Arizona serves 33 schools, including 28 elementary schools and 5 middle schools, with a wide range of academic performance. While the district has some standout high-performing schools, there are also several lower-performing schools that struggle with low proficiency rates and poor statewide rankings.

The top-performing schools in the district include Lookout Mountain School, ranked 236 out of 1,245 Arizona elementary schools, and Abraham Lincoln Traditional School, ranked 200 out of 1,245. These schools boast strong test scores, with 42-82% of students proficient in English Language Arts and Math. In contrast, lower-performing schools like Mountain View Elementary School, ranked 1,237 out of 1,245, have dismal proficiency rates of only 2-19% in Math and 7-19% in English Language Arts.

Across the district, there are significant disparities in academic performance, with a strong correlation between socioeconomic status and student outcomes. Schools with higher percentages of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch tend to have the lowest test scores and rankings. Additionally, the wide range in per-student spending, from $6,668 to $16,398, suggests unequal distribution of resources, which may contribute to the achievement gaps. Addressing these challenges and ensuring equitable access to quality education will be crucial for the Washington Elementary School District to improve student success.
