In 1891, the first school in Reedley was built and named Reedley Grammar School. In 1918, the school’s name was changed to Washington Elementary. Washington Elementary School serves approximately 350 students in grades K-5 and included a staff of 15 teachers. In 2005, Washington added State Pre-School to their program which houses 40 preschool age students and received a 5 star status in 2014 and maintained a 5 star status in 2018. In 2018-19, Washington enrolled 165 students in an After-School Grant called ASES which we partner with Save the Children and the City of Reedley Parks and Recreation. That program continues in current year, serving approximately 160 students.
