About the School

The WES mantra encompasses our collective/shared core values and is recited by all stakeholders frequently.  It is recited during morning announcements, Friday announcements, and whenever we're together as a school family.  The WES mantra is ...

Be kind!  Work hard!  Share your feelings, and read, read, read!  Go Wildcats!

Washington Elementary School (WES) is situated on a beautifully landscaped, tree-lined five-acre campus. The colonial style structure, which now comfortably houses 581 children, was built in 1931. The structural plan of the building provides: a full gym, a well equipped library and media center, a separate cafeteria complete with hot lunch and hot breakfast programs, a computer lab and device to student ratio that exceeds 1:1, a classic air-conditioned auditorium with a seating capacity for over 430 persons, 34 standard sized classrooms, a nurse's suite, individual instructional rooms for art, music, speech, special academic areas, and English as a Second Language (ESL) instruction. WES now has a Social and Emotional Learning (SEL) lab too!  Having an SEL lab at WES is the result of an orchestrated effort between TUPS, Rutgers University, and Kean University.
