I am a 3rd grade teacher at Warrendale and have been here for four years! This school prioritizes in high rigor, and teachers work extremely hard ensuring their students are reaching their full potential. We offer tutoring, after school clubs, charity events, community events, and set our expectations high. I know this because I see firsthand how hard the staff collaborates to make our school a school of excellence. Any parent considering this school should know that we have very high expectations for the children who attend. I have been honored to represent Warrendale as one of the best environments for the children of Detroit!
