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 into a single learning organization focused on: rigor, relevance, and an attention to 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 art, physical education, and instrumental music. This program is meant to extend, enrich, and deepen the core academic program.
  • Healthy Environment—Maintain a healthy, supportive learning environment by engaging all students, staff, and parents in a discussion about the Washington Way (Respect and Responsibility). Create and maintain an educational nutrition program that allows students to grow their own food, cook their own food, and eat their own food.
