Washington School, located in Vinita Park, opened its doors in 1930 and is one of the Collaborative’s oldest buildings. Washington enrolls approximately 300 students in grades 1-8.
To help provide needed resources and services for students, Washington has several partnerships with local groups and organizations including The Gathering Church, Mid-County Fire Protection District, Tony’s Donuts, and Dhvani Foundation. Recently, Washington received a $25,000 grant from insurance company Allstate which was used for library renovations including new furniture and equipment including two digital cameras, Chromebooks, media production equipment and software, and of course, books!
The new library equipment now has a new home! The new addition and building upgrades which include a new library media center, secured entry way, and STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts, mathematics) studio. The addition was made possible by the voters' support of Proposition N, the no-tax-rate increase bond issue.
To help address possible trauma some students may experience outside the classroom, Washington established its Student Care Center. The Student Care Center helps meet social/emotional needs of students.
