    It is an excellent school - the kids do well in school music & sports there. It's my last year at Warwood and I've loved all 6 years there!

    Warwood school is very clicky but you fit in in a while. Thats how every school is isn't it? The principle Mr. Garber wasnt as good as Mr. Saunders but he did he job didn't he? He's a very great principle and I can't wait to see who the new vice principle is! We'll miss you Mr. saunders!! yu were the bestttt(

    If you have not grown up in Warwood do not send your children there. My two children started there in 3rd and 6th grades. They were not accepted by the students at first and it took more than a year to 'almost' fit in. It was even harder for me to meet parents. I was literally snubbed every time I tried to help the PTA (they call this RSVP for the elementary and VIP for the middle school). Both my children are very smart and social. I think that the school is very clickish. Most of the teachers my children had were very good and care . The principal Mr. Garber is ummm different. I think that he tells parents what the want to hear just to appease them. The vice-principal Mr. Saunders is a straight shooter and tells you like it is whether you like it or not. Cmmunication is

    Just FYI my child is not a bad student I just like to know how he is doing. That being said there communication about your children is horrible. I have called and e-mailed both the principal and teacher. It was almost harassing how many times I had called. Finally get someone and they tell me they would call me back. It has been a month. I gave up. I was warned my many parents before enrolling my child but I figured they didn't know what they were talking about. Well I have learned and my child will be out of there this upcoming school year.
