I went to Troy Buchanan High School for my high school career. I had previously gone to a small private school, and the transition between the two was very easy. The block schedule and the easy-to-understand layout of the building made the beginning of high school less stressful. The amount of Advanced Placement and Dual Credit classes is continuing to increase as the years go by, and the college readiness of graduating seniors is extremely high. There are strong department heads throughout the building and the administration team is spectacular. The sports programs are average, but the agricultural program is excellent. Overall, Troy Buchanan High School is a very nice school, and is continuing to improve.

There are a lot of things about Troy that are awesome and some that suck. The acedemics at Troy is what you make out of it. They offer a lot of challenging classes that have really taught me a lot and spruced up my transcript. The administration staff here is awful! I’m not just saying that because I’m a student and I ‘hate’ my principles, but they genuinely are awful. They are extremely rude to not only the students but parents included. They do not care about the students and WILL NEVER meet with you even if you ask for a meeting. The social scene at Troy is pretty good. Groups for all type of people: Jocks, potheads, music, Hicks, nerds, they have it all. And there are so pretty good highschool parties at least every other weekend. Some of the teachers do not care about anything but their checks which comes with the lower level classes.
Troy Buchanan High School is a pretty typical high school. I only gave it the three stars because of the outstanding teachers, staff, and advisors that work there. On the other hand there are very prevalent problems with drug and substance abuse amongst teens in the community. And with my stay at Troy Buchanan High School I did run into bulling and hateful derogatory comments. Otherwise the faculty their is outstanding and I am thankful to have been their students. They will really do anything to see their students succeed and it proves how much they really do care!
