I would like to thank you for taking the time to browse and learn about George D. Warriner Middle School. In the 2007-2008 school year a high school that focused on personalizing education using innovation and technology opened under the name “Face-to-Face” with a student enrollment of 20 students. The school planning team was led by Dr. George D. Warriner, an Instructional Technology Coordinator in the Sheboygan Area School District. Face-to-Face High School lost its leader as its second year of operation began; however, the innovative educational model that Dr. Warriner set into motion had immediate positive results on the students of the then renamed school, George D. Warriner High School, in dedication to its founder.
In a few short years George D. Warriner High School grew to over 120 students and a consistent waiting list. In 2009 parents and other interested parties began to discuss the possibility of a middle school that would allow for the personalized learning approach that our high school had accomplished. A planning team was formed; a competitive planning grant was written, and the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction granted the George D. Warriner Middle School planning team with the funds needed to begin the implementation process. Roughly a year and a half later the foundation was in place to open George D. Warriner Middle School in the 2011-2012 school year. Our first year of operation saw students reach levels unimaginable to even the most optimistic staff. Warriner Middle School students had an average MAPs growth of 9 points in math and 8.5 points in reading with 90% of students reaching their target growth. A student retention level of 96% shows the confidence and support of our parents.
With a focus on personalized education through innovation, George D. Warriner Middle School adapts its highly successful high school model for middle school age students. A flexible scheduling option is available to accommodate any family's needs. While most parents (~85%) opt for our "traditional" full-day (8am-3pm) schedule, many students also benefit from our half-day or online schedule allowing for students throughout the state to benefit from our school. Warriner Middle School will continue its focus on engaging students through an educational model that produces enthusiastic life-long learners. Our college preparation program starts in middle school, and our individual student goals extend well past middle and high school graduation, best preparing our students to achieve a college education.

Yours in education,
Jake Konrath, Principal
