Celebrating a Decade of Excellence: Washburn School's Class of 2015


Dedicated to Washburn School's remarkable Class of 2015! This exceptional group of students holds a significant place in our school's history as they were the first graduating class since our establishment in 2003. As they embarked on their academic journey in 1st grade, when Dr. Lopezcepero and a group of educators started Washburn School, they played an integral role in shaping the foundation of our school community. We express our heartfelt gratitude to each member of the Class of 2015 for placing their trust in us during our early years and for being a part of our growth and success.

To the esteemed Class of 2015, we invite you to take a walk down memory lane and share your cherished stories of those formative years.
