Pete Barnett is the Graduation Coach for our students at Warsaw Community High School. This is a program designed to support and encourage those students who do not already have an IEP with additional services. The students that qualify for this program do not fall into one sterotype: they may be struggling academically, have behavioral issues, emotional isues, difficult home lives, custody battles, participate in drug and alcohol abuse programs or any other difficulty that may hinder them from reaching their full potential and graduating High School.

Graduation Coaching Program is a 2-year program in the classroom (freshman/sophomore) where we study character strengths, share in small group settings, have time in class to work, wlecome guest speakers and most importantly develop a relationship that will last 4+years. Mr. Barnett has office hours outside of class time where he meets with every student to discuss what's going on with their lives in a personal and confidential setting. This program is supported locally by Gradway, whose motto is, "Promoting graduation, one relationship at a time".

Mr. Barnett is married with 3 daughters in grades 9, 8 and 5. He attended Valparaiso University and Grace College. He is involved with his children and their activities. In his family time, he enjoys hiking, biking, visiting family and watching TV. Mr. Barnett has started a program with Mr. David Cook from Edgewood Middle School named "ChainBreakers". This is a program sponsored by 2nd Mile Adventures which exists to have positive adult male mentors for teen boys who lack a positive male influence, in addition to potentially bringing some young men into a relationship with Christ. They take the boys riding on the trails in Winona Lake, participate in 2nd Mile Adventures trips, like ski trip and mountain biking trips. We have scholarship opportunities for these boys to take advantage of to attend these trips. We also have them perform some community service and volunteer at the Fat and Skinny Tire Fest.He feels blessed beyond belief to get to do what he does with students on a daily basis.
