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.

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.
It was very easy to seize opportunities and excel at whatever you desire. This school made me want to become a teacher. The reasons why I would want to become a teacher have pointed to the major events in my life. Since I was little I was always asked, like everyone, “What do you wanna be when you grow up,” and every single answer I would give was some variable of being a student, or in some relation to an art form. I have loved the semblance of escapism of going to school to set aside my home life for academics. Although I must go to school, and my mother has raised me to believe that school is the most important thing in my life, the absolute only reason why I have enjoyed was because of the great teachers I have had.
