The educational process begins at George D. Warriner Middle School with a personalized learning plan that looks at every student individually. This process brings the student, parent(s) and advisor together to set individual goals and create a learning plan that ensures individual student success and attainment of the individual goals. These goals are achieved through the flexibility of our "Four Pillar" curriculum model, while the structure of our school can fit the needs of any family.
Four Pillars of Curriculum = Personalization for Each Student

Exceptional, personalized online courses cover all subject areas. Interactive Math and Reading/Language Arts courses are personalized to each student’s level of skill and pace of study to ensure competency in these vital, in-demand areas of knowledge. Students also have the option to take advanced high school courses while still in middle school. Students also enjoy Rosetta Stone where they choose from over 30 foreign languages to study. At Warriner Middle School we use technology to be efficient and effective, making sure technology is never used as a "crutch" or distraction to learning.
Project-based Learning Read more
Students gain in-depth knowledge in topics of personal interest while meeting Common Core State Standards in English, Science, Social Studies, and other subjects. Project-based learning creates confidence in writing, and the process allows for many hands-on science labs, social studies related projects, and in-depth research in areas of interest.

A Blended Curriculum
Our Four Pillar approach allows for a blended curriculum that encompasses the whole child. It is this perfect mix of rigorous curriculum that allows students to master the skills and essential learnings necessary to set a path for future success in high school and college. Parent(s), student, and advisor work together to develop a personalized learning plan that is matched with our CollegeEd® and ACT Prep® college readiness curriculum to ensure students remain on target to achieve both their short and long term goals.
Effective Online/Technology-Infused Curriculum
At Warriner Middle School we do "online" learning differently than most. We are fortunate to have access to courses from a number of the finest online course providers available. The individual student Measure of Academic Progress (MAP) testing data is used to precisely modify all courses to properly challenge the individual student. This means each course is specifically designed for each individual student. As a result Warriner Middle Schools sees average MAP growth that is 20-30 percentage points higher than the national averages.
