What Makes Our School Special
Washington School has a culturally and ethnically diverse population that includes Caucasians, Southeast Asians, Hispanics, Bosnian/Serbo Croatians, and American Indians. In such a diverse environment children learn to accept and appreciate others whose background and life experiences may be far different from their own.
First-time visitors to Washington often remark, "What a warm and inviting school you have!" Substitute teachers, who work in many schools throughout the Sheboygan area during the year, often say, "I love subbing at Washington School! I feel so welcome and everyone is so friendly, helpful, and caring!"
Creating a school that is warm and caring to everyone who comes - especially our students - is absolutely critical for working successfully with children and families. Children, who feel safe, secure, and appreciated - children who truly enjoy coming to school every day - will be successful learners!
Washington is a school with a professional staff who are relentless in seeking and trying research-based best practices that engage every child and who display a never-ending commitment to improving their own expertise. Yet we know we cannot be as successful as we might be without the support and involvement of students' parents. We seek and we value meaningful partnerships with parents.
We truly believe that if we all work together our students will soar like eagles! That is why our students and staff voted to call ourselves the Washington Eagles!
