HistoryEdit

GEO International High School was established in 2016. The school was located at the site of Warren Central High School in the annex building. With the school's population rising to over 180 students by 2016, it became the newest alternative (A-5) high school in Warren County. The original building was built during the 1970's and has undergone improvements and renovations. The school is a voluntary program that serves English Language Learners within the Warren County Public Schools district. The teachers at GIHS combine content (math, science, social studies, and English language arts) and language acquisition standards to form a unique curriculum that bridges language barriers and allows students to succeed.
