I enjoyed Troy High School. The teachers are helpful and kind and they are always willing to give you a helping hand after or before school without getting paid extra. Troy High School is very elite and high classed, as well as having elite students who aim high for ivy league schools like princeton and harvard. One thing i would change about Troy High School is giving more options for students other than just college, such as technical schools, the armed forces and the labor force. Overall Troy High School is excellent.
Review Troy High School
I will look back on my time in Troy High School with fondness and as the beginning of my passion for biology and volunteering. Troy High has taught me how to explore the many possibilities in this world. I will belong to many communities, but I will always be a Troy Colt. Troy High’s greatest assets are its diversity and competitiveness. There are many different students at Troy High who add to my high school’s prestige by bringing their unique personalities to our student body. Also, Troy High's competitiveness has made me strive to be the best I can in my academics and extracurricular activities. Because of this environment, I constantly find new ways to work more efficiently. If anything were to change at Troy High, it would have to be its emphasis on athletics. If Troy High could spend more time devoting itself to sports, our athletics teams would excel, adding to the already esteemed reputation of Troy High.
My experience at Troy High School has been a very positive one. In terms of college readiness and academics, I feel that I have received top notch preparation. The teachers are very knowledgeable and willing to go above and beyond to help students. Administration is on top of everything at all times and consequently it is a safe, diverse and friendly environment. If there was one thing that I could change about the school it would be to improve upon the athletic teams and overall school spirit. Over the years the focus has become almost entirely on academics. While that is a good thing, I feel that sometimes administration begins to lose sight of the things that allow a high school student to enjoy the overall experience of being in high school. I feel that this experience should include school spirit and comradery that comes from athletics and extra-curricular activities. Because of this factor I would rate my high school experience at Troy High a 9.5 overall.
