About Shaw Butte
Shaw Butte is a learning-rich mosaic, a community of many cultures, where we appreciate differences and celebrate diversity, while focusing on achievement. Our staff believes that all children can dream, achieve and deserve equal access to a full education. Critical thinking skills are taught to enable children to resolve conflicts, make decisions, and identify problems. The love of learning is nurtured as a lifelong process. Shaw Butte's curriculum is fully aligned with State Standards and provides art, music and PE for all grade levels.
The Washington Elementary School District (the WESD) is committed to a learning environment that is physically, socially and emotionally safe for all students. As a part of this commitment, the WESD affirms, supports and values all students and staff and will continue to further efforts in our schools to create a welcoming, safe and inclusive learning environment for our transgender, non-binary and all LGBTQ+ students and staff.
