If your child has ADD/inattentiveness the school will not help you. Will not give your child special ed or related services. I have been trying for 2 years. Horrible degrading teachers. The child study team is unwilling to help. Question doctors and neuropsychologists diagnosis of my child and still refuse to give my child help. DO NOT SEND YOUR CHILDREN HERE.

Some good teachers some not so good. My kid was an underachiever throughout HS and it wasn't until senior year that a teacher felt he wasn't getting the best and referred him to guidance. He ended up getting A's in that class and decided to pursue a major in Physics. Not enough homework is given so that they can be proficient in reading and math. Kids need to practice to be proficient - it's that simple.

Great school with very nice teachers who want you to suceed. Same with the principal who is trying to make the school have a safe enviroment. The classes are hard, but the teachers help you and treat you like a friend.

THE WORST SCHOOL SYSTEM EVER. IF YOUR CHILD HAS ANY LEARNING DISABILITIES DO NOT SEND THEM THERE. THE HEAD OF GUIDENCE (MRS PETRILLO) ONLY LIKES CHILDREN WHO GET STRAIGHT A'S . THEY PUSH KIDS THROUGH THE SYSTEM THEN ENCOURAGE THEM TO DROP OUT. (OR FORCE THEM TO) NORTH WARREN DROP OUT RATE IS UNEXCEPTABLE. HALF THE TEACHERS NEED TO BE FIRED. MY CHILD WAS SUBJECTED TO A HORRIBLE FRENCH TEACHER THAT COULDNT TEACH , FAILED 90% OF THE CLASS AND WAS FIRED THE NEXT YEAR. DID THE SCHOOL DO ANYTHING ABOUT THE KIDS SHE FAIL . NO

North Warren has a great teaching staff and a fair principal leadership. Athletics seem to be improving and school spirit is up. The teachers seem to be very involved with their students. The new administration is showing great improvement.

North Warren is slightly above average for a high school. The athletic programs aren't well supported by the community, and a general lack of school spirit is present. Few AP classes are offered, most troubling is the lack of AP Physics. There are a number of great teachers at the school, especially in the English, Science, and History departments. North Warren provides very little guidance on the way to college (no fee waivers, parent-student-college meetings, etc.) The campus is aging, but well planned. The students are of a high caliber in the upper level classes, and are generally amiable and friendly to all.

A whole new administration in the last two years has pointed the school in a very positive direction. The staff is starting to believe that they can be part of uncovering the full potential of NWR. Many new teachers in both regular and special ed coupled with a whole new attitude will restore this school to a higher level of learning. Increases in AP classes this year and despite the reduction in state aid projections they will continue to add more. They have also placed a lot of emphasis on correcting the past mistakes in the special ed area and providing all kids with educational opportunities and growth. The extra-curricular activities and the sports programs have flourished. The only down side is the need for additional space. While class sizes have been intentionally reduced in the last few years there is still a need for a little more classroom space.

In the past 5 years, I have had way too much contact with the administration of this school. In being the 'squeaky wheel' I have been able to receive services for my children they definitely would have never received otherwise. The staff goes through the motions, but never seemed to be held accountable for their students success or failure. On a positive note, almost the entire administration has been replaced, and Dr. Fogelson seems to really be taking the bull by the horns. I am hopeful that by this time next year, I can give this school at least one more star, maybe two!

This school does have great potential, however, the school administration, seems unconcerned and uninvolved. They go through the motions, and a lot gets swept under the carpet. There is a new superintendent which may enable this school to rise to its potential. This remains to be seen.The school does not take advantage, and even seems to deter, an untapped resource: the parents! In using this resource they may be able to turn the school around in a cost effective manner. I feel the teachers should be held accountable, and should teach responsibility by practicing responsibility. If a child's test scores begin to slip, or homework assignments become sporadic,teachers should be required to contact the parents immediately. I also think that the guidance department should take a more aggressive approach in meeting with the students regarding H.S graduation requirements, and preparation for college.

This school has the potential to be a great school, however at the present time is falls short. There are too many administrators(who do not want to get involved in making a great school) in this school district ,which takes money away from the areas that should be improved to make it great. It is a regional high school with no track and limited extra curricular activities. Very few administrators and teachers seem concerned with involvement, interaction, and improvement. Most seem concerned only with their pay checks and putting in time. There are several outstanding teachers in this school, unfortunately they are outnumbered by the substandard. The school does not encourage parental involvement, and places all responsibility on the students relinquishing the school and teachers of responsibility under the guise of preparing the students for college.
