It is interesting that the people submitting negative reviews are unwilling to sign their names. Every community has its distracters and Warren County is no different. It just happens that this group in our community is the one who controlled the school system for six years and led it to the bottom of the rankings in Georgia s public schools. My three daughters have all graduated from WCHS and gone on to successful college and professional careers. My oldest daughter earned two undergraduate and one graduate degree in less than 6 years while maintaining a 4.0 GPA at Georgia College and State University. My middle daughter is successfully balancing a career in business while working on her undergraduate education, and my youngest daughter is a freshman at Georgia Tech. Warren County citizens and taxpayers have demanded reform in our public school system and have ousted the poor leadership group that drove us to the depths of record substandard performance. After a nationwide search, Carole Jean Carey was appointed superintendent just over two years ago and she immediately reshaped the leadership team in the school system. As an accomplished expert in school improvement, she has turned this system around and is leading Warren County schools to a level of achievement that was only dreamed about just a few years ago. Our elementary school was recognized as a Georgia School of Excellence in 2003. We were one of only 26 schools in the entire state to earn this distinction. All of our schools are off the state and federal government s needs improvement lists for the first time in six years and we will soon earn SACS accreditation for the first time in our system s history. Our high school is the first in the state to incorporate the Performance Learning Center concept throughout all classes. Our middle school, under the innovative leadership of Mr. Truett Abbott, is nothing less than exemplary and should soon be recognized by the state as breaking every record on the books in remediation and improvement is test scores. Warren County schools biggest problems are parental apathy and racial divisiveness. We are a small rural community which has suffered from decades of low expectations. Fortunately, the spirit and desire of the vast number of our citizens for our children to have the best possible opportunity for a quality education far outweighs the destructive comments of a small disgruntled group of losers. Warren County is a great place to live and raise your family, but I encourage you to judge this for yourself. Come see us soon! James H. Newsome 1968 Graduate WCHS Vice-Chairman Warren County BOE

The teachers at this school have made tremedous strides in improving the quality of education here, despite former system-wide administrators who didn't have a clue as to what 'quality' meant. Unfortunately, many of those who laid the groundwork for these improvements (principal, assistant principal, technology director) but are no longer with the system did not receive any recognition when this school was named a Georgia School of Quality. The current superintendent has reserved all the glory for herself and her assistants, although they have been here less than 2 years and had almost nothing to do with the improvements. Teacher morale would be greatly strengthened if more efforts were made to honor and publicize the achievements of individuals at the school (teachers as well as children). Parent involvment is very high, but teacher morale is hurting.
