We embrace the core values of Warsaw Community Schools.

  • Everyone has value- any question you may have is important to us. Feel free to call or email us when you need to know something. If we don’t already know, we’ll make every effort to help you find out.
  • Every individual has something to contribute- each student is unique and we enjoy getting to know your students and helping them pursue their dreams.
  • Learning enriches life- Students can get very excited when they master a concept or have a passion ignited. They can also get very discouraged if they are struggling in class. Let us know how we can help you on either end of that spectrum.

Hello Sophomore and Junior Parents,

    Today your students were given their PSAT results from October. Attached you will find an explanation on how to read your students results as well as an example student page. 

Khan Academy is a wonderful FREE resource for your students to prepare to retake the PSAT or take the SAT.  Khan Academy pairs with College Board so students are able to link their PSAT and SAT scores to this tutoring site. This allows them to get guided tutoring based on areas that they could improve.  Find out how!! Click Here

Your student's PSAT scores will be utilized in multiple ways including Advanced Placement Potential and Dual Credit eligibility. PSAT is not the only factor in these opportunities but they are considered. 

Your students scores are also available at Collegeboard.org 

If you have further questions based on your student's PSAT results please contact your student's school counselor:

Rhonda Graney- Class of 2019
