Washburn is home to its own schools from grade school through middle school and high school. Sports and extra curricular activities are available at all of the schools and the Summer Recreation program offers T-Ball, Baseball, and Softball during the summer months.
While established with many small businesses to meet the needs of daily life, Washburn continues to grow with available commercial spots within its business sector and its own Industrial Park area as well.
