Principal's Message

Welcome to Washington Junior High School…home of the Warriors!  Our mission is to prepare students to be successful in high school so that they can pursue college or career.


Washington serves approximately 500 students in 7th and 8th grades from the Rock Island community.  We offer a comprehensive core curriculum to support our students’ learning needs.  WJHS is home to a strong AVID (Advancement Via Individual Determination) program that prepares the academic middle for advanced coursework and a pathway toward college.  Students also have opportunities to be a part of Project Lead the Way pre-engineering (PLTW), Art, Music and Computer electives.


Washington follows the PBIS model (Positive Behavior, Interventions, and Supports).  Our students are taught the Winning Warrior Ways: Be respectful, Be Responsible, Be There/Be Ready.


Our students have many extracurricular opportunities in a variety of sports, clubs and before and after school academic supports.


Our priorities at Washington and in District 41 are to 1) Increase student achievement, 2) Build respectful relationships, and 3) Improve operations.  All of our work aligns with these goals.


We look forward to working with your student and getting to know your family!  Please feel free to contact me at any time.


-Principal Kristin Allen
