Troy has a bad rep, but I think that's based on those who really don't apply themselves or who are the "troublemakers". I have had a phenomenal experience at Troy, and am graduating with 30+ college credits!

many college coarses available. I graduated with over 30 college credits, many of which were accepted by my college. which gave me some savings on my college expenses. the counselors are helpful with trying to figure out which classes you need to get these credits. Unfortunately they are not very helpful when trying to apply for scholarships. I struggled to pull that information from the guidance office. The building is a little old and needs some updating. However the school district felt sports were more important, so we spent over 2 million dollars updating our sports fields outside. The fields are amazing, but they did not benefit the majority of students in the school. That's the reason for taking a star away.
I really enjoyed my time in the Troy City School District. As a proud alum, I can fully say that the district, does an amazing job about helping their students. The faculty was amazing and really too the time to help me and made sure I had all the necessary resources to get into college. They go above and beyond to help those who are not only seeking for it but whole need an extra nudge in the right direction. The school's academics are amazing, with the college in high school program students are able to tackle one year of college for a low cost. They have an amazing SAT prep and offer an insane amount of AP courses. There is so many clubs and activities that there is a little bit of something for everyone and no one has to feel left out and its their if students choose to take advantage of it.
