The former high school was located on Willard Street on the eastern side of town. Originally, the current middle school was the town's high school, but in the district's late 1960s attempt at expansion, the current high school was built. Only one high school exists in the Washington Local School District.
The new high school (and middle school) building was constructed on the massive Elm Street construction site between the corner of Elm and Willard and the current McDonald's restaurant.
Washington Senior High has approximately 50 staff members and approximately 600 students in grades 9-12.

Residents recently voted on a levy in order to secure tax monies to replace the aging school buildings currently in use, with a total budget of $60,693,801. The majority of funds, $39,694,272, will be provided by state, while the local community will provide $13,946,000. Locally funded initiatives will provide an extra $7,053,529. The companies overseeing this project are Ruscilli Construction Co. Inc., Heapy Engineering LLC, Shell + Meyer Associates Inc., and Ruetschle Architects.
On May 7, 2006, a groundbreaking ceremony and celebration took place near the high school and Eastside Elementary to raise awareness and mount excitement for the buildings coming in the near future.
