The fact that your children can start strings in fourth grade is the ONLY plus to this school. On the middle school side, we had several genuinely good teachers who care and do the best for the children. The others don't bother to show up for IEPs and cave to the passing of children to to move them forward. Bullying is a big issue with the more popular kids being able to treat others badly with little to no consequence. My child there was never in trouble but was the repeated victim of bullying from name calling to assault of a vulgar nature. The school is very cliquish!!! The elementary side of the school is similar. The main difference being the lack of organization and communication. Constant calls from the robo caller that are pointless while important matters recive little attention. Notes home from teachers concerning outings and events were Never free of spelling and grammatical errors! Transferring in was difficult due to the cliquishness and the mentality that comes with that type of people. I fear I let my children stay too long and hope and pray the damage done to the oldest one's self esteem and the youngest one's academic career is not permanent. On a final note, the constant use of the High School, miles away, for every little concert and event is ridiculous and the hassle is compounded when the add alll of the county's schools to the same concert or event. This is as much civility as this school deserves in a review.

If you have not grown up in Warwood, do not send your children there. My two children started there in 3rd and 6th grades. They were not accepted by the students at first and it took more than a year to 'almost' fit in. It was even harder for me to meet parents. I was literally snubbed every time I tried to help the PTA (they call this RSVP for the elementary and VIP for the middle school). Both my children are very smart and social. I think that the school is very clickish. Most of the teachers my children had were very good and care . The principal, Mr. Garber is, ummm, different. I think that he tells parents what the want to hear just to appease them. The vice-principal, Mr. Saunders, is a straight shooter and tells you like it is whether you like it or not. Cmmunication is

Just FYI my child is not a bad student, I just like to know how he is doing. That being said, there communication about your children is horrible. I have called and e-mailed both the principal and teacher. It was almost harassing how many times I had called. Finally, get someone and they tell me they would call me back. It has been a month. I gave up. I was warned my many parents before enrolling my child, but I figured they didn't know what they were talking about. Well I have learned, and my child will be out of there this upcoming school year.
