MESSAGE FROM PRINCIPAL
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.
Over 1,130 eighth grade District 86 students graduated from Dirksen, Gompers, Hufford, Washington, and Thompson Schools.
The Joliet Grade Schools Foundation for Educational Excellence approved nearly $24,000 for classroom grants for the 2016-2017 school year.
