Warwick is a very good school. The students are very bright and my daughters grade (6) have grown up together and they get along very well. There are some really great teachers and not so good ones like any school but overall the school excels in academics. Since we moved here the API score has gained almost 60 points and continues to improve. They are on the right track. This is a very large school - over 850 kids but they do a good job of getting what each student needs. There is a lot of parent involvement which makes a big difference. We looked at houses in the Mission area and others where the API score is higher but they are a pressure cooker - this school has high standards but it isn't over the top which suits my daughter well.
I am very happy the API increases to over 900. Warwick has 840 students and it is a very high achievement for Warwick to have such API especially with a large number of students which is also including the students with disadvantages situation. My son loves his kindergarten teacher, Mrs. Thornton. She is very awesome. She has good methods of teaching students. Every student is special to her. My son is in the first grade now. His teacher is Ms. Euginio. I cannot rate her now because the school is just start, but so far she is great, always friendly. That's a positive attitude I want to see from all teachers. I want my son to have teachers that love to teach and love the kids.... not because they have to teach.
Warwick is a diverse school with great teachers, caring staff and involved parents. The school is high-achieving academically and students from different backgrounds get along well with each other. I am very pleased with Warwick!
Principal is a bonehead. Does not seem to pay any attention to parent requests and seldom meets them when they have concern. She lives in her own world. Mr. Murphy is the Gem of the school and probably best teacher in fremont unified. All kids want to be in his class. Staff at office is good and supportive as well. Most of the teachers are very easy type which equates to kids learning practically not much and will be at disadvantage when go to high school and compete with others.
This school has great teacher's. Lots of the parent volenteer's. My son enjoys going to the school. The teacher give extra help if needed.
Instead of using positive discipline, some of the teachers and staff here seem to enjoy meting out punishment for minor or arbitrary infractions. For example, if a few kids are being noisy at a lunch table, ALL the kids at that table must stay behind and delay their recess. There are 400+ kids together in one big gym for lunch so it will be noisy anyway but that doesn't matter. Another example: if a parent forgets to return something to the teacher, instead of the parent getting a phone call, the child gets punished by losing a recess. Definitely not a nurturing, caring, or positive environment for learning. After 3 years we've had enough. The school has good scores, but that's not enough to make a good school.
Warwick is a huge school, the largest in the district. With the California budget cuts class sizes have increased to 28-32 students per class. There are at least 900 kids at this school now, so getting such a large number through lunch and recesses can be frustrating. The lunch lines are long so kids get maybe 5 minutes to eat if they're last in line. The Vice Principal, who helped keep order in the school, was laid off two years ago. The teacher my son has this year will be retiring in January, so with her added load of extra students, she is mean and doesn't seem to care about her students since she won't be around to see the STAR scores anyway. Three years ago I would have rated this school excellent but now it's below average. It's a large, impersonal school. We hope to transfer out next year or send our son to private school.
This school is wonderful for children. My daughter goes to 2nd grade and she loves it there. She gets enough homework to keep he busy after school and we feel its just right for her, no too much or too less. The teachers are very committed.
This school is wonderful for children to learn. This past year due to the economy, we lost our beloved Vice Principal, Susan Hernandez, who was a fantastic administrator who knew every child and their parents/guardians. She was highly visible, friendly, and had a genuine interest in all the children. She will be missed dearly by the entire Warwick community.
My child attended Warwick since 2002, so I had an opportunity to compare schopll performance under Mr. Hurtz and Ms. Paratore leadership. I have to admit the quality of education, communication, and organization have gone down, mainly do to the teacher's great turn around rate following Mr. Hurtz' departure. first thing I like to state is the constant absence of regular teachers (in every grade except kindergarden), that has a very negative effect on student's performance. Situations with teacher's maturnity leaves are handled poorly, with no solid plan of replacement. Weekly lunch menu includes only few items that are creatively given different names to make it appear as if there is a variety. No care is provided for children during back to school night - not even parent volunteer care, and yet administration complained about the noise that was made by unsupervised kids on the playground.
My son has attended Warwick from K-6 and through out years, we had great teachers like, Ms. Carson, Mrs. Barnald-Batausa, Mrs. Crossman, Ms. Rubalcava, Mrs. E. Long and Ms. Clark. They all are great teachers. If you live in Warwick area, consider to send your child instead of spending tons of money in private school. Thanks.
This year is my son's first year at Warwick and I found the school to be very good. I truly enjoyed the parents and teachers involvement in getting events coordinated and completed. I also found the school's way of communicating to parents very practical by sending newsletters so every parent is informed of upcoming events at school.
My two kids are going to Warwick School.My kids are really very fortunate to get teachers like,Mrs Fread,Ms Eugenio,MsRubalcava,Ms Clark.They are very nice teachers both as a teacher and as a person. Warwick Rocks...
Warwick Rocks! My New Teacher Ms. D Ramirez is nice but sometimes we get on their nerves. I love this school
My son went for kindergarten and had teacher, Mrs. Deh-Lee. He learnt a lot than earlier private school he used to go. The teacher was really hardworking and knew how to get job done from students. As compared to nearby schools like Ardenwood or Forest Park, this class had more disciplined homework and activities.
I am impressed with the quality of leadership and teaching quality at Warwick Elementary. The test scores have been increasing steadily which could be attributed to the increasing parent-teacher involvement in school activities.
The administrative team is highly responsive to student problems. Their focus is on the safety and education of each student. There is a high level of parental involvement. During the past few years, the administrative team has moved the school in a positive direction including raising the test scores alot during 2005-2006.
Warwick needs to work on it's response time when it comes to students problems. The principle and teachers need to have more communication with each other.
My second-grade daughter is new to Warwick this year and I was worried about the transition from her small private school to a comparatively large public school. Her teacher has been the primary element to calm my concerns. A veteran of the public elementary system she remains enthusiastic about teaching and about children. She quickly identified my daughter's interests and finds ways to encourage her love of reading and writing that go beyond daily class work. The other members of the staff and administration have also been friendly and helpful to someone new to public school. Overall we are relieved and pleased with Warwick School.
