About Us

The mission of East Washington Academy is to provide opportunities for students to achieve their personal best, become responsible and productive citizens, and embrace lifelong learning in a safe and positive environment.


At East Washington Academy, we believe:

  • All children can learn
  • All children benefit from developmentally appropriate materials, practices, and strategies
  • All children deserve a quality education in which individual needs are met, exceeded, and supported
  • Social skills, such as Life skills, deserve the same attention as academic ones
  • School is not just about children: it encompasses families, parents, community, stakeholders, society, the environment and the world
  • Children must be encouraged to see the connections between new learning and prior knowledge
  • Children are more than test scores
  • Children learn best in a safe, caring environment, one that values diversity, collaboration, and risk-taking
  • Children thrive when expectations are high and self-esteem higher
  • Direct instruction of students helps to increase student achievement
