Trenton Public Schools Reviews

I have three kids total from two families,(divorce). The sister and two brothers have limited time as it is seeing each other. My goal was to have them all together in the same school. We found out 1 week before school starts they would not be together. Being told by the super that Trenton schools do their best to keep families together was a joke! My kids are not together. We have many strong feelings about how this was handled after being told differently by members on the board that special situations like this have been overlooked before in the past. In the long run, It all will work out, it’s very frustrating and sad to have to explain to my two other kids why they will not be atttending their big brothers school.

Administration does not care about students. Bullying is unregulated, and despite complaints, nothing is done about it. Extracurricular activities are the only thing keeping the school at an average rating and the budget for that is rapidly dwindling. The marching band has been nearly undefeated in years, but the funding is raised entirely by the band while the football team is drowning in funds they don't need or deserve
Trenton is a great school district overall but fall short in some aspects. When it comes to bullying, Trenton is very uneducated. They state they have a "no tolerance" policy but this is very untrue. When a classmate or student passes away or commits suicide, they are also very uneducated. Trenton Public Schools tries to offer counselors but its not what we need. We need more recognition, to feel like were being heard, and to heal with revising current standards. Not have counselors thrown our way. A small selection of teachers also needs to be either re-trained or re-located. They make inappropriate gestures and comments in class. On the positive side, Trenton has great extracurriculars and is a safe school. They have strong sports teams and lots of extra tutoring opportunities.
