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.

During PSAT testing on November 2nd, seniors are asked to be out of building until 11 am.  If you have not yet planned a job shadow, volunteer opportunity or college visit, you should consider attending the College Visit Day at Ivy Tech's Warsaw Campus.  The event starts at 9:30 a.m. (so you can still sleep in a little bit).  There will be free T-Shirts, refreshments, campus tours, and program information available; along with a student panel question/answer session. So, if you have not yet made plans for the PSAT test day Nov 2nd, consider attending this college visit day at Warsaw's Ivy Tech.  21st Century Scholars are required to complete a college campus visit so why not take advantage of this opportunity to visit a local college?
