My daughter went to kindergarten at Warren. She came home crying almost everyday. The teacher threatened to make the class spend the night, until several kids were crying. She told my daughter that she was disappointed in her. Very negative atmosphere. I found it to feel like a learning factory. I have found a new school for my children.

I've gone to this school from kindergarden to 6th grade and I found it unsatisfactory the school doesn't have a lot of money the students constantly complain of the numerous teacher problems and i don't blame them. Every kid I knew in 6th grade couldn't wait to get out of this school. I would come home crying somedays just because of the days I've had there. And the worst part is I went to middle school unprepared and lost. The school didn't prepare me if I were you don't take your child to this place. Take your child where a teacher will be happy to teach them. I found around 3 good teachers in the 7 years I was there

We loved WCS its the best public school I have sent my children to ,the teachers are willing to work with the parents and children the classes are small so the teachers can give the students the time that they deserve we had to move :( a couple of towns away to Washington and now that the kids are in a different school we wish they could go back to WCS

My children attend WCS and I have had some wonderful teachers. I must say that I feel very secure knowing that my children attend a school where everyone looks out for your child as well as their own.

My son is in kindergarten this year, so I am new to this school. I feel that he is getting the best possible start. The teachers and whole school have been amazing in working with him and his individual learning style. His teacher has been in constant contact with me the whole year.

SAD 40 has problems at the District level. Leadership in the late 1990's to 2002 was very poor. However, Warren Community School has done well despite this handicap. My two children have had positive and rewarding experiences there. As with all schools, much depends on the involvement of the parents. All things considered, I am happy with WCS's performance.
