Richard W. Warren Middle School opened in the fall of 2000 and was named after a long time educator and friend of Leavenworth. It serves all 6th, 7th and 8th graders in the district. Each grade level team has nine general education teachers and one or two special education teachers. Our grade level teams meet on a daily basis to discuss pedagogy relative to curricular issues, best teaching practices, technology, student concerns and use part of the time for implementation of Professional Learning Communities. The goal of our team planning approach is to ensure that students have a successful educational experience during their years at Warren. Warren Middle School offers core classes in the subject areas of language arts, mathematics, science and social studies. Electives offered to all students are Physical Education, Vocal Music, Beginning Piano, Art, Band, Technology, Computers, and Intro to Spanish. Eighth graders also have the option of Spanish I. Please see the Course Catalog below for a description of all course offerings.
Progress reports are sent home every two to three weeks with students. Parents may also access grades, attendance and discipline reports through Power School. To sign up for this program, please call the office, as this is a tremendous way to oversee your student’s progress from home. Co-curricular clubs are offered in a variety of areas after school for all students. Athletics are available for 7th and 8th grade students who meet eligibility standards established by the school and the Kansas State High School Activities Association. Our students may participate in boys or girls basketball, football, track, volleyball and wrestling. Here at Warren, we believe that a successful educational experience requires the cooperative effort of students, teachers, administrators, and parents. Thus, we encourage parents to become involved in the school, and appreciate strong communication with parents. By working together, we believe we can help our students become responsible, respectful citizens who are lifelong learners.
