Trumbull Public Schools are very well organized and guide students to achieve their goals as long as they work towards them. Personally, I have had a wonderful educational experience in Trumbull, as I am a senior at Trumbull High School. My favorite aspect of these schools are the teachers and their passion for guiding students to their goals and future successes.

Trumbull Public Schools has served me well as a student, however, there is room for improvement. Personally, I had many influential teachers, throughout my high school career thus far, but the same cannot be said for all of my friends. I have realized that the best teachers are concentrated in the higher level classes. It is my opinion that the students in lower level classes should be given the best teachers because they need the most help, while Honors and AP students could thrive from more independent learning absent the aforementioned influential teachers. I am a huge supporter of the idea of "no man left behind" and I think this should be addressed at THS. This phenomenon and the lack of diversity would be my only complaints. Heading into my senior year, I already feel as though I am prepared for college and genuinely knowledgeable in areas that will be useful to me in a career.
Overall I enjoyed my time at Trumbull Public Schools, however I feel that there is much that can be done to improve the experience. First, I feel that the teachers need more screening or more sensitivity training. While I had many great teachers, I also had many teachers that didn't seem to care about being there, were not suited to teaching high schoolers, and some that just seemed to hate students in general. Also the facilities need more work. Some of the material in classrooms are very old, such as the textbooks, desks and technology. I would also appreciate if there was more chances to get involved in certain technology based classes such as coding. The athletic department would also be improved with professional coaches teaching the sports.
