I am a Senior right now and I have to say that I am going to miss my school so much. Warwick Valley High School (WVHS) gave me the whole high school experience I wished for and much, much more! Of course, just like every high school student, I had my ups and downs. There were times when I just blamed my high school for everything. No high school is perfect. But I have to say WVHS is definitely close to being perfect. You will make friends here, your teachers will be your best friends sometimes, you will make enemies too but you will make more memories than anything! I am so proud and lucky to be a wildcat!

Warwick Valley High School has given me a great experience in meeting other people, leadership opportunities, and us electives that have exposed me to several different fields that colleges offer. I loved high school because of my experience at Warwick Valley High School, I've grown so much in the past four years and am hoping for the same type of experience/exposure in college!
There was a multitude of interesting electives from computer science, to veterinary sciences, to floral design. The classes were well constructed with qualified and caring teachers. Many of the varsity sports were very competitive and did very well in the district, the clubs are very widespread, there really is something for everyone, however, my main complaint is the lack of diversity. Warwick is a school that is almost completely lacking in minority groups, leaving all of the opinions and views to be Brough to the table by an almost completely white population.
