Our students receive college-level experiences beginning in grade 6. As a technology magnet school, Washington prepares students to be ready for high-tech, high-demand jobs that probably haven’t even been invented yet. Throughout the school day we use technology that includes iPads, 12 computer labs, interactive whiteboards, sophisticated microscopes and robotics. All students across grades 6-12 gain long-term relationships with staff, making for a smooth transition from middle to high school. In the state’s largest extended-day program, every Washington student has at least one hour daily of academic or enrichment activity, including world languages, competitive athletics and computer programming. Students learn in interdisciplinary teams in specially designed “house” areas of the school. Washington is also a BioSMART school, which stands for biological science, math, academic rigor and technology. Students select one of two BioSMART pathways offering specialized courses in biomedical or engineering.
