A Message from Principal Burner



    Welcome to another fantastic school year at Washington High School. My name is Chris Burner and it is my privilege to serve you as principal. At Washington High School, we serve Colton Joint Unified School District students who have a variety of educational needs. We can serve students from Kindergarten to High School Seniors, through five different educational programs. All of our programs keep students progressing towards promoting to the next grade level and ultimately earning a diploma.

    Because we are a small school, our students receive more individual and small group attention as teachers and tutors work side by side to instruct and give help to students. Washington High School emphasizes the phrase “Be The 3!” which translates to “Be Respectful, Be Responsible, and Be Safe!” We believe we are successful in providing a great education, great social support and a safe environment for students and staff.

    We invite you to choose Washington High School as an educational option for your child if they are struggling in the large comprehensive school program. As always, we are here to answer any questions you may have and we are here to serve our students, so WELCOME TO WASHINGTON HIGH!

    Always at your service,

    Chris Burner
