So ... what is notable about Marcus Vick? Other than the fact that his brother makes millions and is probably the best QB in the NFL ... Basically the only thing notable about Marcus Vick is his lack of direction and his many infractions with the law ...

Wow!!!!! I had no clue that other wikipedians attended Warwick. It's fantastic that that is the case. Certaimly there is a rift between IB and non-IB. And I agree that Lilley rocks! --Steven

I feel as if this article is openly biased towards the IB sector of the school. Perhaps the matter of the fact is that few wikipedians attend Warwick. --StevenL 15:56, 31 July 2005 (UTC)

I have edited this article to be more factual, which involved deleting some random nonsense. Feel free to add useful information in its place. Uvaduck 22:32, 13 August 2005 (UTC)

I think the fact that whoever edited the article to catagorize all the "non-IB" kids as "unneccessarily hostile towards anyone who plans on graduating high school" is a perfect example of that superiority complex. As difficult as it may be to believe, there are non-IB kids going on to top colleges. Also, that school sucked. -warwick alum

POV, unsourced[edit]

I have removed the following content from the article which appears to be a violation of NPOV and was also unsourced. Vaoverland 16:21, 23 June 2007 (UTC)

Currently Warwick High School is able to boast the longest streak of a district-used field with non-working lights. Currently the streak is at 3 years of the lights being broken and no end to this is in sight. In addition to this, Warwick High School is able to boast that it has the worst field in the district. The Menchville High School soccer team even went as far as to practice for the Warwick-Menchville game on their football team's practice field in order to prepare for the inevitable Warwick bounce due to the massive clumps of grass on the field. Hopefully, in the coming years, the field will improve from its probable top ten position in the state's worst district game fields. One can only hope though, and any improvements seem highly unlikely especially since at Warwick many of the boys bathroom stalls do not even have a door on them.

William Styron[edit]

This article says Styron attended Warwick HS. Styron's article says: "Styron attended public school until third grade, when his father sent him to Christchurch School, an Episcopal college-preparatory school in the Tidewater region of Virginia. Styron once said, "But of all the schools I attended ... only Christchurch ever commanded something more than mere respect — which is to say, my true and abiding affection."" What is right?

Warwick High School Speech and Debate Program[edit]

The Warwick High School speech and debate progam has been a successful component of inter-school competition since its "re-birth" in Fall 2004. The speech team component of the program has been six-time consecutive district champions, made six showings and both regional and statewide competition, has four regional championships over three different categories of speaking, and has amassed 6 state finalists. The debate team component has been district champion three out of four years (2007, 2008, 2010), has qualified numerous debaters to regionals and has had state semifinalists and finalists under its belt.

Additionally, the team has competed at such prestigious tournaments as Wake Forest University's (Winston-Salem, NC) Earlybird, Myers Park High School's (Charlotte, NC) Laird Lewis Tournament, Southside High School's (Greenville, SC) Sampons Robertson Tournament, Terry Sanford High Schools's (Fayetteville, NC), East Chapel Hill High School's (Chapel Hill, NC) The Open Tournament, and Ardrey Kell High School's (Charlotte, NC) Knight's Quest Tournament. Awards were won at all tournaments attended.

The program students competed in the 2006 National Forensic League National Qualifier Tournament, the 2008 Virginia Catholic Forensic League State Tournament, and the 2008 Virginia Catholic League National Tournament.

THe program is directed by Deon Garner, who is a 1995 graduate of Phoebus High School (Hampton, VA) and a 1999 graduate of Morehouse College (Atlanta, GA). Deon was a successful debater both in high school and in college. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 15:32, 18 October 2010 (UTC)
