Warren Central High School Reviews

I loved Warren! The staff was great. There is so much diversity that shows students what the world is like. There are many after school activities for students to choose from. There are of course, down falls, but most of these are not specific to Warren but instead schools around the United States (i.e. flaws with graduation tests). I knew a lot of students that felt like Performing Arts did not get the same attention nor funding compared to athletics. Additionally, I always felt a lot of pressure to get the highest grades I could, even if I had to sacrifice sleep, social activity, or fun. On a separate note, the lunch lines would sometimes be so long that students only had a few minutes to eat their food.

Throughout my experience at Warren Central High School, I have had a variety of teachers who are very helpful in explaining concepts in the curriculum as well as assisting with individual questions that pertain to them. The community is welcoming, and there is a place to fit in for everyone who comes to the school, whether it be through classes or extra-curricular activities. Additionally, plenty of AP courses are provided for students who wish to better prepare themselves for college, including subjects in mathematics, sciences, writing, and fine arts. This allows for a myriad of choice for students planning their schedules. Overall, the experience that Warren Central offers is golden, and is more than capable of readying students for education after high school.
Warren Central has given me an abundance of opportunities to pursue my academics and areas of interest. It offers an amazing performing arts center, as well as a great staff! In my four years of learning, I have never met a teacher nor any other staff member that did not not care about their job nor their students. Warren Central is definitely the Pride of the East Side!
