The Indiana Department of Education recently announced the finalized graduation rate for Indiana high schools during the 2016-2017 school year. After reviewing student data, Warsaw Community Schools is proud to announce its best graduation rate at 95.1 percent in the past 40 years. 

Over the past 4 years, WCS has made significant strides in its efforts to improve graduation rates. Equipped with the knowledge that students who graduate from high school are less likely to suffer hardships in life, WCS created a graduation cohort to examine current student data in order to intervene on behalf of students to ensure their success in meeting their graduation goals. The cohort constantly assesses best practices through data analysis and visiting schools who have shown a marked improvement in their own graduation rates.

“We are very excited about the high graduation rate and continual growth that has occurred in our graduation rate,” stated Dr. David Hoffert, superintendent of Warsaw Community Schools. “It has been a collaborative effort between our teachers (kindergarten through senior year), administration, support staff, community organizations, parents and volunteers.”

In addition to strengthening successful practices leading to student graduation, Warsaw Community High School and Warsaw Area Career Center have also greatly expanded course offerings over the past few years. These offerings allow students a sense of engagement and relevance in their studies as well as pathways forward toward receiving not only their diploma, but college credit and workplace certifications.

Although the rigor of coursework and testing mandated by the state has increased over the years, Warsaw Community Schools students are meeting and exceeding these expectations through the commitment of students and staff alike. Warsaw Schools remains committed to inspiring and equipping all students to continuously acquire and apply knowledge and skill while pursuing their dreams and enriching the lives of others.

On behalf of Warsaw Community Schools (WCS), I welcome you to the 2017-2018 school year. This school year promises to be the greatest year yet in the long-storied tradition and history of WCS. Our mission is “to inspire and equip all students to continuously acquire and apply knowledge and skills while pursuing their dreams and enriching the lives of others.”

As WCS, we are proud to serve and represent our local community through many award-winning programs. Your local schools have been recognized nationally at the White House, as well as state-wide, as a leader in public education in the areas of robust curriculum, K-12 STEM education, a state-leading career center, trailblazing dual language immersion, technology integration coupled with extra and co-curricular excellence.

Our commitment is to continuing advancements to meet the future needs of our students and community. During the previous school year, WCS went through an intensive community input process of strategic planning focused on the future of student learning. Systematic advancements are being implemented to provide our 7,200 students a world-class education focused on their future dreams and career goals.  These unique accelerations include the expansion of STEM education, world language acquisition, the arts, educational partnerships with local industry, a focus on social emotional wellness of students and facility planning designed for safety and academic space needs.

Our Board of School Trustees, educational staff and administration wish to extend our gratitude for the community’s support as we open our doors to the start of a great year.
