At the elementary level, our variety of curricular programs promotes student success in school by assisting them to learn necessary skills and attitudes. Programs emphasize decision making, skill development and awareness, while students explore educational possibilities. Many programs also stress self concept development and the acquisition of skills in developing interpersonal relationships.
In our middle schools, curricular programs focus on the rapidly changing needs of emerging adolescents. Our programs are especially sensitive to the struggles of our middle school students for identity and for balancing the demands for academic, career and social competence. Many components begin in elementary school and continue to fit the special needs of students in middle school. The Warren Consolidated curriculum areas build on each other as students progress through our grade levels.
In our high schools, students are becoming responsible adults who can develop realistic and fulfilling life plans based on clear understandings of themselves and their needs, interest, abilities and skills. High school curriculum meets the simultaneous needs of meeting graduation requirements, preparing for college and assisting our high school students to develop competence in decision making career planning, working with others. and taking responsibility for their own behavior.
