Washington Community Schools


The Washington Community Schools district in Indiana consists of 6 schools, including 3 elementary schools, 2 middle schools, and 1 high school. The data reveals notable differences in academic performance, student demographics, and other key metrics across the schools in this district.

Veale Elementary School stands out as the highest-performing school in the district, with strong academic results, low chronic absenteeism, and a relatively higher socioeconomic student population. In contrast, the middle schools, Washington Junior High School and Washington Upper Elementary, generally lag behind the district and state averages in academic assessments, suggesting an area for improvement. The district as a whole appears to be struggling, with most schools ranking in the bottom half of their respective state rankings and receiving low ratings from SchoolDigger.

The data also highlights significant disparities in student demographics and socioeconomic status across the schools, with Veale Elementary having a much higher percentage of white students and lower percentage of free/reduced lunch recipients compared to the other schools. This suggests the need for the Washington Community Schools district to address equity gaps and learn from the success of Veale Elementary to improve outcomes for all students.
