Awesome experience. Great detail to education of all students.
No disruption during school times. Been at Troy for 4 years and my brother was there 3 years prior to me, only 1 incident on campus involving students in the 7 years I been associated with Troy HS. Don't get much better that!
Amazing teaching stuff, they are always available to help if needed. Plenty of tutoring available if needed.
Review Your School
Troy High School was a great learning environment and prepared me for college probably much better than any other school could. In fact, Troy might've over-prepared me for college. The academics are great. Whether you test into Troy for the IB/Magnet programs or simply attend because it's your home school, the high standards of academics will fall on you. You'll be exposed to many cultures as there will be students from LA, Diamond Bar, Whittier, Riverside, Chino Hills, and many other cities coming just to attend this prestigious high school, not to mention the diversity that already exists in Southern California. If you succeed socially and academically at Troy, you'll be guaranteed to succeed wherever life may take you.
Teachers: A large portion of Troy teachers are very hardworking and dedicated to their responsibilities as teachers. Many do go above and beyond their responsibilities with after-school tutoring, easy approachability, help with extracurricular events (Science olympiad, FBLA/business competitions, Economics competitions, etc.), and they are very open to writing college recommendations.

Curriculum: Most teachers do make their own teaching plans yet still follow along with AP, IB, and other requirements for passing knowledge exams and earning class credits.

Scheduling process: One month dedicated to helping students plan out their schedules. It tends to be a busy time and there are many miscommunications but most can be cleared at the start of the new semester if you wait in line or make an appointment.

Workload: Troy is known for its workload. Many students pull all-nighters or close to all-nighters very often, especially during weeks when every core subject's units end at the same time. It is not uncommon for students to depend on caffeine or energy drinks on a regular basis.

Special Study options: Peer tutoring clubs (student to student), after-school tutoring help (teacher to student(s)), teacher run after school sessions before AP testing, etc

Popular classes: AP US History, AP Environmental Science, AP Biology, AP Physics, AP Chemistry, AP Calculus AB and BC, AP Statistics, AP Lang and Lit, AP European History
