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.

  • Honesty, integrity and trust are fundamental to thriving relationships- we are committed to giving you timely, correct information so you can make good decisions about your educational future. Let us know if we can help.
  • Embracing diversity strengthens community- We are a diverse school in interests, ethnicity and economics. We hope all students have equal access to the programs and extracurricular activities at Warsaw Community High School. If something is keeping you from participating in an activity or class, let us know. We’ll try to help.
  • People have life-changing power- If we all work together you can have a great experience at Warsaw Community High School. But it takes a combination of school policies and opportunities, parental involvement, teacher dedication and student motivation to equal success.
  • Giving of time, talent and resources is vital to the well-being of the community- Our student body and staff is always involved in some type of community service. Check the school web site to see what opportunities there are for you to join in.

 

Our counseling staff pairs with a grade level administrator to try to address your needs in a more personal manner. We stick with you for your four years of high school so we get to know you well and can help you pursue your future goals. Get to know our counselors on the Guidance Staff page on this website.

Information about specific academic offerings can be found under the academic tab. There you will find our course of study guide and course selection forms. We also have information about programs in the Warsaw Area Career Center that are open to our students.

GENERAL INFORMATION

To Parents and Students:


High School is an exciting time to explore career options and discover your aptitudes and passions. Each
student has chosen a career pathway and course selections will reflect your student’s choice. This guide
is designed to assist you in making the best possible decisions to get you where you want to be on your
career path as you complete high school. With the number of dual credit (meaning your student
earns college credit and high school credit) and certification programs available at Warsaw
Community High School and Warsaw Area Career Center your student can leave prepared to
complete college or go right in to the work force at a higher level than others competing for the
same positions.

Parents have a responsibility to each student to be very certain all state and local requirements are met
for graduation. Specific requirements are explained on the following pages.

EARLY GRADUATION (application required by February 24th)

The intent of an early graduation would be to allow a student to exit Warsaw Community High School
to pursue college, technical school or the military early. Early graduation may occur in six or seven
semesters. A student must apply for early graduation by completing an application which is available in
the Counseling office. This form must be submitted to the student’s counselor prior to February
24, 2018. The building principal will review these applications along with the counselor. The student
will be informed of the decision as to whether early graduation is granted. Graduating in six semesters
will require summer school and/or correspondence classes depending on the student’s diploma type. It
is wise to weigh carefully whether graduating early will actually benefit the student. A student can
complete a year’s worth of college classes at a greatly reduced cost by remaining in high school and
pursuing dual credit and AP classes.

For Current State Diploma Requirements, please see the following link.
