Washington Middle School was completed on Kenosha’s north side in 1919. It was initially built to serve 450 students. Along with the other middle schools being built in Kenosha at the time, it was named after a former president.
In 1965 a 40,804 square foot addition was added to allow the school to grow along with the growing Kenosha population. This addition included a modern library, the cafeteria, and several classrooms on the first and second floors. An additional wing was built to house the locker rooms and gym. The osd and the new can be in the physical building but also in the spirit of Washington.
A Century of Learning
100 years later and 811 Washington Road remains a bedrock for the neighborhood, serving the children and the educational needs of the community. With a faculty of over 75 dedicated professionals, Washington prides itself on a strong school spirit, a deep sense of purpose, and a never-ending commitment to the community. Students from Washington receive a great education that exposes them to modern technology, challenges their thinking, and instills in them a strong self-confidence to be prepared for High School. While providing many opportunities to learn and experiences to grow, students are offered many great memories from Spring trips to Washington D.C., Madison, an overnight camping trip, enrichment through a Fine Arts program, Saturday School, clubs, sports, and more.
