Warren Consolidated Schools is a public school district serving the cities of Warren, Sterling Heights and Troy, Michigan. It operates 25 schools including two specialized partial-day high schools that draw from the other schools within the district. Warren Consolidated has about 14,000 students and a student/teacher ratio of 25:1.[1]

History[edit]

Warren Consolidated was formed by 1941, when the North school became part of it. Also known as the Berz school, it was located on the West side of Mound just South of 15 Mile Road. That school was sold in August 1952.[2]

Special programs[edit]

Warren Consolidated alerts non-English speaking parents of disciplinary issues and emergencies using a "language line" system with interpreters.[3]

Learning Centers[edit]

  • Hatherly Educational Center[5]
    • It was previously operated as Hatherly Elementary School. In 2014 the district announced that Hatherly Elementary would close, with the building becoming Hatherly Educational Center. The center received the Macomb County Head Start Program, the district Early Childhood Special Education (ECSE), the Great Start Readiness Program (GSRP) or "World of Fours", and the district's tuition-based preschool. These programs were respectively hosted at Lean Elementary School and Fillmore Year-Round Elementary School, Siersma Year-Round Elementary School, Holden Elementary School and Siersma Year-Round, and Willow Woods Elementary School, respectively.[7]
  • Annie Flynn Educational Center (Sterling Heights)
    • The center, located in proximity to Metropolitan Parkway and Ryan Road,[3] was previously operated as Annie E. Flynn Middle School. In 2014 the district announced that Flynn Middle would close, with the building becoming Flynn Educational Center. Community High School and Adult Education English as a Second Language (ESL) were to move to Flynn, with the former coming from Butcher Educational Center and the latter from Sterling Heights High.[7]
    • As of 2011, the school had 640 students. Almost 66% of the students were bilingual in English and another language, and the majority of the students were second generations in immigrant families. Former principal Charles Kluka characterized the school's environment as a salad bowl instead of a melting pot. The most common foreign languages spoken at Flynn were Albanian and Arabic. Other students were Assyrian, Bosnian, Cantonese, Filipino, Hmong, Indian, Korean, and Vietnamese, and there were 26 primary home languages among the Flynn students. The school had an English as a second language program with over 50 students, and it provided three interpreters who assist persons during special events held at night and in classrooms during school hours.[3]
