Students enrolled at Washington Junior High School will be motivated and challenged to meet high expectations. We are a body of educators, who along with parents, partner together with one common goal of developing life-long learning and productive citizens.

In order to boost academic achievement, a new focus is being placed on Math, Science, and Technology. To meet the needs of our diverse population of over 700 students, teachers and staff will complete intense training based on differentiated instruction and methodology.
