Troy High School Reviews

Some teachers are truly great, but they are overshadowed by an administration that lacks long-term vision and solely focuses on academic prestige, while not supporting academic growth?? At school, resources such as the libraries are not available at most times, even during lunch. Furthermore, the overall mentality here is pretty bad because administration focuses on college results moreso than students' individual growth. Ironically, college results to top institutions have drastically decreased in the past 3 years. Perhaps this is due to students from Troy High having difficulty succeeding at university because they are unable to adjust to the "Troy bubble." Lastly, yellow polo-ed SafeEds possibly keep the school safe, but are useless in enforcing and protecting student rights. For half the school population, 2 of the 3 bathrooms in the main section of the school are routinely closed every day.

I had quite the high school experience at Troy High. With a wide range of clubs and excellent fine arts programs, I found myself involved and actively participating in the school scene without much difficulty. The manifestation of diversity resulted in many cultural clubs, and learning about an unfamiliar culture was easily within arms reach. The exuding passion within all of the teachers created a professional yet comfortable atmosphere in the classrooms. All of the students were very driven which curated both inspiration and competition. One thing that I think could have been better was the school spirit from the entire student body. I wished that there was more participation from each student when it came to school-wide fundraisers or events like homecoming. Some particular things that made attending Troy High more fun and memorable were Rent-a-Senior, Wellness Weekend, and Mr. Troy High.
Troy High is a great school in material and academics. The overall quality of student life is only about half as it is hard to find a student that is not partaking in several advanced classes, and sports/clubs. Troy High is a school for overachievers that are ready for a challenge. The material is good, but the teachers don't have a high level of good response from students. It's about 50/50 whether you may receive a decent teacher. I was once given a teacher who struggled with a head injury and could not remember the class she was teaching. The class had to protest as she was failing us as she did not understand how to use the online grade book and sources. However, one bad teacher does not diminish the group of amazing teachers I have received. Some I've even kept in contact with after. I believe if you are ready to be challenged and show the world that you are capable of high education, Troy High is the right place for you.
