About NWES

North Washington Elementary School is located in Willisburg, KY, nestled in the heart of Central Kentucky. NWES is one of the few Preschool-8th Grade public schools in the state, allowing for a strong continuum of supports and services for the students and families we serve. Family partnerships are extremely important to the success of our school, and we strive to work alongside parents/guardians to make our school the best it can be.

NWES serves over 550 students in grades Preschool through 8th Grade. Opened in 1999, it is the product of two community schools, Mackville Elementary and Willisburg Elementary, merging together to become North Washington Elementary School. School colors are Red, White and Blue and we are proudly the “Home of the Patriots”.
