Washington Local School District
Washington Local Schools recently joined a dozen other local school systems in northwest Ohio and became a governmental member of TMACOG. Superintendent Patrick Hickey said,"The Washington Local School District prides itself on offering students individual attention and infinite opportunities. TMACOG works to connect communities. As Washington Local becomes the newest member of TMACOG, I look forward to the new connections we'll be making and the new opportunities that will be created for our students and community."
The Washington Local School District is within the City of Toledo, roughly bounded on the west by Talmadge Rd. and on the north by the state line. It includes all of Washington Township and much of Point Place and north Toledo. The district’s schools include Whitmer High School and its Career & Technology Center (9-12), two junior high schools (Jefferson and Washington) and nine elementary schools (K-6). Together the schools serve approximately 6600 students. The district is rated Excellent by the Ohio Department of Education.
With 2100 students, Whitmer High School is one of the largest high schools in northwest Ohio. The school offers more than 200 courses, 22 varsity sports, and 15 career training options. Demonstrating a commitment to technology as a learning accelerator, the district has Smart Boards (interactive white boards) in virtually every classroom in the district.
