  • Located in the backyard of Mount Vernon, Washington Mill Elementary is equally proud of its past, present, and future. The land where George Washington once walked continues to serve as a farm, planting the seeds of a solid education for the students of Washington Mill.
  • Staff members recognize the importance of technology as it is woven into the curriculum. In grades 3 - 6, all students have a laptop.  While technology is a focus, staff members continue to emphasize basic skills in the instructional program.
  • Washington Mill enjoys rich diversity in its population. Diversity is a strength that adds to a multicultural educational program. The community celebrates family heritage through a yearly program focusing on each student's family history.
  • Just as it was during the time of George Washington, Washington Mill is an exciting place to be.
