I strongly discourage anyone from enrolling in cosmetology at Warren Tech. I attended WT for the full day hairstyling program during the 2014-15 school year as a high school senior. At first the school seemed great until some of the "favored" students began cheating. When myself and several classmates brought the cheating, which the school supposidly has "zero tolerance" for, to the attention of administration, we were shrugged off and told it was our problem to fix. The cheating continued to go on until those students graduated. In addition, we could hardly ever find our teacher when we needed help. She would disappear from the work floor and not return for sometimes over an hour. If you were not a favorite of hers you would get little to no help if you were struggling. Our tests were ill planned and often sprung on us at the last minute. This resulted in more than one student being run out of the school because they were so discouraged. Many students were verbally abused for laughing "too loud", the teacher even went so far as to maliciously call one girl an "attention freak". Our "instructor", if you could call her that, even made a few girls cry after yelling at them. So, if you're looking for an upstanding high quality school LOOK ELSEWHERE. Be warned this is an awful place to go to school.

I do not recommend goin to warren tech. Especially if you are attending as a college student. During the first week of school, my teacher, Mrs. Flower, took me and another college student aside and told us that we were expendable and didn't mean anything to her class because we were college students. She also told us that if she decided she didn't like us, then she would kick us out. The teacher also neglected to teach anything useful in class and spent most of her time gossiping about other students to other teachers and students. It was also very dangerous to get on her bad side. I was out of school for a week because I was really sick. When I returned she was upset because I was gone for so long. Then suddenly out of no where, she was trying to force me out of the class. When I asked her why she got really defensive and would not give me a legit answer. She then left and brought back 6 security guards and told them to make me leave the school. No longer feeling like I was in a safe situation, I left the school. The security guards followed me and one guy in a golf cart parked directly behind my car and blocked me in! Going there was the biggest mistake I have ever made!

The quality of programs at Warren Occupational Technical Center are exceptional. The outline of the Culinary arts program is above and beyond. The exceptional leadership that the head chefs lead with is again above and beyond. The involvement the parents have is outstanding. It helps us parents be a part of our kids educational experience. My son has been able to build, develop and exemplify the skills, abilities and job sets he has learned while attending Warren Tech. This program is a wonderful welcome to my son in helping him to develop a career in something he thoroughly enjoys. Thanks to all the wonderful and exceptional staff at Warren Occupational Technical Center. You have made my childs high school experience a wonderful one, one that will not be forgotten.
