I loved the people at Tri County High School. I think that the students and staff are very welcoming and friendly to one another. It's a school where all of the students can support one another despite differences and friend circles, and I really like the atmosphere. The teachers at Tri County go above and beyond for their students, and are always willing to help them through whatever problems they may face.

One thing I would change at Tri County would updates to the building, and amount of clubs and extra circulars that are offered.

What I like about Tri County is the music program. I've participated in it for all four years of my high school experience, and we've received numerous awards from going to multiple state competitions and performances. Something that I'm not to fond of at my school is the lack of AP classes. Last year was the first year that we were offered an AP class (which I took). There are definitely a lot of smart people at my school, but not enough opportunities on campus for them.
Tri County High School is a relatively small school. However, this gives the students opportunities to connect with and get extra help from their teachers. Because of the small size, students are forced to interact with one another, creating a friendly dynamic at the school. The arts are scarcely funded and some of the sports are over funded. The money is not allocated well throughout the different clubs, arts, and sports. Speaking of sports, most of our girl's sports teams thrive while our boy's sports teams try their best. The arts programs are underfunded, but they manage to get by. Last year and this year, the marching band went to state at Ford Field. Also last year and this year, the concert band went to state. Overall, Tri County High School is a pretty decent school. If you have the ambition to do well, then you will.
