Mission & Vision


Our mission is to provide all students with a positive and challenging learning experience. Critical thinking skills are developed through literacy, fine arts, mathematics, technology and the sciences. Individual excellence and a desire for lifelong learning are promoted through a partnership between home, school, and community.


The vision of Washington Elementary School is to be a community learning organization that unites the strengths and talents of students, parents, and staff with a focus on rigor, relevance, and the “whole child.”

To achieve our vision, the following goals have been established:

  • Strong Academic Program—Create a challenging, relevant, and engaging instructional program provided by a staff working interdependently and in conjunction with parent and community volunteers that allows all students to master grade level standards.

  • Enrichment & Arts—Create and sustain a comprehensive and standards-based enrichment program that includes the areas of science, visual arts, physical education, and instrumental music. This program is meant to extend, enrich, and deepen the core academic program.

  • Healthy Environment—Maintain a supportive learning environment by developing in all students, staff, and parents a sense of PRIDE (Positive Attitude, Respect/Responsibility, Integrity, Determination, Empathy).
