This is one of the worst high schools I have ever seen. Students are left without any real guidance, supervision, encouragement, care or concern.

Posted July 21, 2009

The school districts policy of everyone passes, regardless of their effort and results, is very discouraging to me. That someone who did nothing would receive the same diploma as someone who worked at being a student is disgusting. It is an 'everyone needs to feel good about themselves' school system that does a poor job of preparing it's graduates for the 'real' world.

Academic wise, this school is pretty bad compared to most schools in KC. It doesn't focus much on AP classes, nor does it offer calculus 2 and such. Mr. Richner was probably the most educated and dedicated teacher when I went to high school. Everyone also believed Mr. Pauling's class was hard, but that's exactly how the standard should be to prepare students for college.

This school is ok. Sometimes i get pushed around and the teachers don't believe me and other times they do. Good on the outside but gets worse in the middle.

This school is very good from a students viewpoint. They offer many academic advantages that I don't see very much in other schools. Warrensburg High School deserves a five star rating!

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Missouri used the End-of-Course (EOC) Assessments to test high school students in Algebra I, Algebra II, Geometry, English I, English II, American History, Government, and Biology. The EOC Assessments are standards-based, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined by the state of Missouri for each subject. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the test.
