Warren Central High School is an educational institution that can trace its beginnings in Indianapolis back more than a century. Consolidated from two overcrowded schools in 1924, Warren Central High School has a strong history of excellence. Warren was created as an amalgamate of the Shadeland and Cumberland schools, two schools which catered to junior and high school students until the construction of the new high school. Today, Warren Central High School and the Walker Career Center cover almost one million square feet "under one roof." The Vision 2005 building project has brought state-of-the-art renovations for the nearly 3,900 students. These additions and renovations have included a ninth grade academy that includes forty classrooms, new field house, and a natatorium.
Since 1983-84, Warren Central High School has been officially recognized as a "National School of Excellence" and as an Indiana Blue Ribbon School. Warren graduates have earned National Merit and other scholarships that have enabled them to achieve their goals. Co-curricular activities and student involvement in these activities are unparalleled in the state of Indiana. Championship caliber music programs and athletic teams have been the rule not the exception. The school newspaper and yearbook have received national accolades. Individual students consistently win awards in academic and performance competitions. Warren Central's Alumni Hall of Fame is laced with local and nationally renowned individuals.
