Principal's Welcome 2017-18



Welcome to Warsaw Community High School and the Warsaw Area Career Center!  Located in northern Indiana, Warsaw is a wonderful community located in beautiful Kosciusko County.  In this 'Land of Lakes',  we are very proud of our outstanding school and terrific student body!  Combined, WCHS and WACC, under the direction of Mrs. Ronna Kawsky, have 2,150 wonderful students with over 125 staff members.  As Principal of WCHS, I welcome you to the home of the Tigers!

Currently, we operate under a Modified Block schedule. We have two 18 week semesters.  Grades are calculated throughout the semester with 9 week assessments administered at end of each quarter.

Monday, Tuesday, and Friday are 7 period days including SRT classrooms or labs for additional academic support.

Wednesdays and Thursdays are Block Days.  Wednesday students attend periods 1,3,5, and 7. Thursdays are 'Late Start' days for our students as we provide a collaboration period for our teachers. The first period is pushed back to 8:30 AM from the normal 7:40 AM start time. Thursday periods are 2, Enrichment, 4, and 6.

The administrative team functions with 'looping' administrators.  The term 'looping' means that each Assistant Principal moves with his or her class each year.  We believe that this is essential and it allows us to build and strengthen our relationships with students.

We are most excited and filled with anticipation as we begin this 2017-2018 school year.  Should you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.
