I liked Warren Central it was very diverse and had a different culture than anything I ever experienced! I enjoyed the teachers and different things that Warren presented us, we had fun with the different things that they had us do like dressing up as characters, elderly it was exciting. Some things that I would change would just be the environment that some of the students may bring in, but overall it was cool.

I found an incredible community and belonging in the clubs that I participated in. However, the overwhelming population of students who misbehave began to ruin the experience for me. My freshman class totaled up to about 900 referrals in this incomplete school year. Nonetheless, students can still find their groups in this school and its a dynamic I’ve never experienced before. Warren Central High School doesn’t have the typically cliquey high school groups, but rather everyone has their groups of friends and goes through their high school life. The school has a stigma for having fights way too often and I agree to extent. While I witnessed a large amount of fights, it wasn’t as hyped up as the rumors perceived it. Warren Central is known for not being the best. They are great at some sports but doubted almost everywhere else. If a student affirmatively chooses their experience at this school they will most likely find a good time.
I liked that Warren Central was very diversity, I believe having different culture backgrounds is a big help with the students. Students should feel like they belong considering their background. I feel as if with Warren Central being culturally diverse with many different people with very different backgrounds definitely helps students. Attending Indiana University as a young African American female definitely made me realize how important cultural diversity and having a sense of belonging is important. I would definitely recommend Warren Central to other individuals.
