Thomas R. Proctor high school although not in any way a prestigious school, deserves to be recognized for various reasons. As an inner city school containing about 2,500 students grades 9-12, the students as well as faculty make it an unforgettable high school experience. It offers many opportunities through its extracurriculars and programs to push students towards their goals after high school. The diversity of the school gives it character and also allows for students to easily find friends or something they enjoy doing. From NJROTC to STEM classes through MVCC, there is something for everyone. However, the number of student to faculty ratio can hinder the classroom’s environment and the school’s overall administration. There is a lack of funding compared to other schools but they make the absolute best with what is provided.

Although other people around the Utica area have horrible thoughts and opinions of this high school, it really wasn't anything like it's described. Sure fights do happen and other similar situations but in what high school is there not? Besides I've been going to this school for about three years and still haven't reach a complications with my fellow alumni. Regarding the education offered at this school it probably the best in the whole county. There's ton of diversity when it comes to pick a course. Furthermore when it comes to after school clubs they have you covered. From a robotics club to a chess club and even a croquet clubs they nearly have it all. I personally feel very satisfied that I decided to attend to this school. In end it all comes down to the type of school your looking but if your interested in a very diverse and competitive school Thomas R. Proctor High School should be a first pick.
The school is very diverse, many clubs to join, they also have a program call JROTC which helped students with military and leadership skills. Proctor is has been of the largest high school, full of about over 7,000 people, if you were to attend Proctor high school you would not be left out. There is a variety of sport, they have soccer, golf, football, lacrosse, volleyball and much more. Students could even get attend in school, Proctor offers many Mvcc duel classes which get students ahead in college. Proctor offers many opportunities for students such as scholarship, tutor help and much more.
