Team Organization Information

  • Washington Middle School began organizing students and teachers into teams in 1995. Our teams are the ideal models for middle school education, creating "schools within a school." Each team has 50-120 students and 2-4 teachers. Washington's excellence in academics, discipline and a positive, safe environment stems from the small team structures within each grade level

    -Teams maintain the benefits of small neighborhood elementary schools, ensuring that every student is well known by one teacher and receives individual attention.

    -Teams add the best of secondary education by allowing for strengthened academic instruction through teacher collaboration on each team.
