Open Quote The Best School I have ever had any connection to. My daughters will have far better lives because of their time there. Close Quote

Open Quote My daughter was at Washington from first- fifth grade. She received an amazing education, went to school with great kids, and the teaching staff was outstanding and committed. The only bad spot was they were not given the same technology the rest of the district was given and he PTO had to work hard to fund the school to district levels. Special shout outs to Mrs. Woodin, Bubnack, Johnson, Wallace, Worly, and Cejka. Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.

About Immunization Rates:
Each year, public and private schools across the state are required to send data about their students’ vaccination status to the Illinois State Board of Education. The state Board of Education compiles the data and shares them with the Illinois Department of Public Health. Public health officials use the data to monitor trends, track compliance with state immunization laws and identify pockets of vulnerability should an outbreak occur.
