This year, there will be approximately 455 students attending Washington Elementary School. There are three classes for kindergarten (two morning sessions and one afternoon session), grades 1, 2, 4, and 5; four classes for grade 3. Continuing this school year, in first grade, will be our highly successful Literacy First program with teachers co-teaching during the Language arts block of the day. This program includes specially designed instruction to help children experience success within the regular first grade curriculum.
In addition, an autistic support classroom for the Boyertown Area School District is located at Washington Elementary School. This program is designed for students enrolled in kindergarten through second grade and provides appropriate educational experiences for students with autism. The autistic support program consists of an autistic support teacher, occupational therapist, speech therapist, and four para-professionals. Washington Elementary also provides a variety of specialized instruction and/or supplemental services for students including special education programs, Student Assistance Team and remediation services from highly trained professionals.
