Profile of Hope - Washington Elementary School

Washington Elementary School sits in an older and densely populated portion of San Jose just across the interstate from Downtown. Fully 95% of Washington Elementary’s 500 students are eligible for the Federal Free and Reduced Lunch program. They live in need, below the Federal poverty line. Washington Elementary has the smallest and densest boundary area in the San Jose Unified School District, a situation that fuels constant challenges for the school. Learn how the Family Giving Tree is working with YOU to bring hope and joy to this community. Read more...
