As Principal at Earl Warren Junior High School, I consider it a privilege to welcome you to our school. This year promises to be yet another year of success for the Wildcats both inside the classroom and out. In addition to the regular academic program provided for students in English/Language Arts, Math, History, Science, Computer, and Physical Education, Warren students are offered a wide variety of elective classes such as instrumental and vocal music, AVID, exploring technology, art (drawing, cartooning, pottery, fabrics/textiles), study skills, sports officiating and creative communications. Extra curricular activities for Warren students include student government, color guard, intramural sports, oral language festival, science fair, and afterschool sports.
Earl Warren Junior High has a history of great accomplishments in a wide variety of areas. In the area of instrumental music, the Warren band and orchestra have received Superior Ratings at the California Music Educators Festival and placed record numbers of students in Kern County Honor Band, Orchestra and Chorus. Yearly we have students who take projects to the District, County and even State levels in the California Science Fair, History Day and we have students who place at the Kern County Oral Language Festival. In addition to these kinds of accomplishments Warren students make outstanding contributions in the area of community service. The Warren Canned Food Drive traditionally collects over 2000 pounds of food while the Warren students and staff participate annually in the Relay for Life which contributes over $5,000 to the American Cancer Society.
The Warren Parent Club plays an important role in providing funds and other resources to improve the quality of life and instruction at Warren. Their annual fundraiser is a major source of funding for the Warren Student Council as well as various organizations such as band, orchestra, and chorus. Additionally it purchases items for the annual “Teacher’s Wish List” project. The Parent Club’s help is very much appreciated.
The staff at Earl Warren Junior High is looking forward to assisting our students make the transition from elementary school to high school during their time here.
