I'm a graduate alumni for the class of 2008. I just want to say that Warren is such an amazing school! the campus is great and the student population is very diverse. Many of the teachers at Warren are very passionate about teaching and it really reflects through the students. Graduation rate is very high and the school does a great job motivating students to continue a higher education. There are so many school atheltics and clubs to join and everyone definitely loves showing their school spirit. The Principle and Deans do a great job getting involved with school activities and really leading the school to the success that it has been having from generation to generation. There is several AP courses provided that give students an advance placement with college credits.
My daughter is a sophmore at this school and attended as a freshman as well. Wonderful school experience. We had the choice to go here or Libertyville school district and so glad we choose Warren instead.
I think the school is excellent I never had a problem from any teachers, or others staff members. I had two that graduated and one more there and never was unhappy about the school. If I came up on a problem it was quickly resolved and leaving me pleased. I never felt that the school was more for the whites nor the blacks. I think that they were more for the students because education shouldn't have a color. Reguardless, of how we feel about the staffs if the students don't want the education then it will be hard for the teachers to teach which will make it hard for the other students who wants to learn. My family and I don't have much but I want my children to know that having an education is like having gold that no one can't take away from you no matter what.
My daughter is a freshman at Warren Township High School. Even before she started her first day, the school was involved with making her high school experience the best it could be. The principal at the Almod campus id GREAT and you can tell that he truely cares about the children in the school. They encourage the parents to be involved in thier childs education. The teachers are really good with communicating with the parents and keep you well informed of your childs progress, especially when there is a problem that can be addressed before it becomes a detriment in thier performance. For the number of students enrolled at the school, you would expect they would be too busy too busy, but that is definately not the case at Warren. It truely is a great school, with caring staff and educators, and they provide a top quality educational experience.
I'm a junior at Warren and I've gone here all three years.Yeah, it has its flaws. For example, it's so big. For some students its overwhelming, but its size enables students to have opportunities that smaller schools just can't provide. And even though Warren is so large, students don't have to get lost in the crowds. One merely needs to take initiative. You want extra help from a teacher? You merely need to seek them out, they won't come to you. The teachers are of quality and there are many opportunites given where students can take the opportunity to get extra help. And because Warren is so big, we have colleges visiting from around the country to court students, and it is easy to be able to speak with, and get info from, someone from a college in California, New York, or Texas. Many AP courses are offered, there's even one for freshmen, which is really helpful later on, and economical. The fine arts programs are awesome, and the sports are plentiful. Yes, there are issues, espcially at the O'Plaine Campus. But no school is perfect, and things definetly improve as students mature and move to Almond Campus.
You know I have never walked one step in this high school, but I am contemplating moving to Gurnee. Thanks to all the selfish parents and students that have their two bit opinions about the most minor issues, and then you read it and are not sure what to make out of it. My goodness can people complain. I guess it's your God given right, but the glass is not always half full. Their facilities are too nice! Not enough emphasis on sports, too much emphasis on sports. The floors are clean, no they aren't.. Lord.. Get a grip!! I give it a 5 just to balance out some of the stupidity!
i was a a student at warren, it does have really good education but the racism is incrediably higghh the teachers and and the staff willl always favor the whites I WILL NEVER EVER SEND MY CHILDREN HERE !!!! so they can get mentally and emotianally damaged? NO THANKS!
i am currently a junior at warren township high school i love the school and all that it has to offer the teachers are great and really interact with each and every student and are more than happy to stay with you after school if you need extra help also the environment is great
I've been impressed by the interaction and support my daughter has received from the administration and faculty.
I am a Senior at warren, it is nothing like libertyville i have a varsity athlete and sports are not the top priorit. last year seniors had a senority in the school, this year nothing at all. At the main football events, we cant even black out or white out because its against school ruled which is crap. If i were a parents id sent my chile to libertyville,vernon hills, carmel they are all better then warren
I am a sophomore at Warren currently. I am an all honors/Ap level student (who does well in the classes as well) who is currently in two sports and the top band. I love Warren. The honors program is high level, many students accumulate large scholarships. There are so many things you can be involved in from music, to sports intramural and competitive, clubs(most where anyone is in) and voulenteer programs. There is a place for everyone. There is a good diversity of teachers and teaching styles that is a good mix and preparation for further education. I like almost all of my teachers. One of the challenges Warren faces is the diversity, there is no way around it. It is very difficult to cater to all types of attitudes and people to succeed academically. The plus side is it best exposes everyone to learn to interact and except diversity.
I am an actual student of Warren and it is a great school. I feel totally safe when I am there. Warren has a great atmosphere and great teachers and staff.
I am begining my sophmore year at Warren in the fall and I have been very pleased with everything that it has to offer. The population is indeed large but to succeed in extracuricular activities is not that hard. There are so many activities to choose from it would please even the pickiest student. I love all my teachers and if you try your best you will go far through Warren. 'It all starts here.'
I loved warren and all my experiences throughout my four years there were very beneficial!! I can still remember my ILS teacher....Ms. Schmitt....she was the best teacher I have ever had all my years at Warren and I am glad I had her.
We moved to Warrens school district a few years ago. We have been very happy with the school and all they provide. It is much better than the school district my kids were in previously. Is it perfect? No. Are there are other schools nearby that are better? Sure. Do we all want to pay higher property taxes so more can be spent? Probably not. So it's a catch 22. The money has to come from somewhere right? But where? My only complaint is with athletics. There is a lot of favortism in some sports while others don't get the same consideration and attention. Overall though, I'm proud to send my kids to Warren.
my concerns,regarding academics,are not the issue. However, the lack of courtesy, indifference/disrespect,the administrative faculty displays towards parent should seriously be evaluated! afterall, we are all educating our children, either directly or indirectly.
i am currently a sophomore at Warren Township High School. and i must say that i am not happy with the school at all. We have excellent extracurricular activities but since the population is so large there is a very slim chance of actually making a team. The teachers are mostly mean and not very helpful, but don't get me wrong i have had some amazing teachers while at this school. My brother also went to this school as well, he is from the class of 05, and his opinion of the school was also not so good. I think money is being spent on the wrong things. if i were a parent i would not send my kid here.
Our school has a lot of fun stuff to do and a lot of good programs that a lot of schools don't have. Being a student at the school I think that we kind of take advantage of it all and not even how good our school really is. All the teachers are pretty young but yet have vary good teaching methods. Overall I think that Warren is a great school
Quite a few new teachers that don't know how to work with adhd kids. The teachers and system want them to fit in rather than work with them. They will help if pushed but you (the parent) must stay very present and participative. Most of the guidance counselors are helpful but unless your child is average or above, it may be a bit of a struggle.
We were disappointed in the quality of education provided to our children. They have had growth and population issues that they were slow to deal with. Because of the rapid growth in the school they have facility crowding and discipline problems. However, they do have a new superintendent that is making some postitive changes. It may be several years before they will be in fully effective enough to make an overall impact educationally. They have a very diverse ethnic base and a lot to offer in the way of activities for the students.
