I think the school itself provides lots of opportunities for its students, however, I also believe it puts its students under dangerous amounts of stress to gain those opportunities. There were lots of kids at my school who wanted to graduate regularly with a good GPA without taking any AP classes and without being in like 4 clubs at once, and that's something troy high doesn't appreciate. It's a great experience if your a star A+ student who can handle the stress, but if you're just a regular student, you aren't catered to with the same opportunities.

Troy High School is an amazing school; great learning environment, wonderful teachers, and friendly students. There is an extremely wide selection of classes and very qualified teachers who teach them, not to mention that they always take time out of their own days to help students if it is asked of them too. The only downside I suppose is that the environment is extremely competitive, so pressure and stress levels are always relatively high. But, this also pushes people to achieve highly, and students here are very driven to achieve highly with regards to both academics and extracurriculars.
Troy High School is a very diverse community of intelligent students. I have met many people that have inspired me to become better and have enlightened my perspective of the global world. The education that you will achieve will be challenging and in some aspects unfair, but you will be proud to have graduated from a blue ribbon school always trying to become better. I admire the fact that the principle and those in charge are activity seeking improvement in the school. The main concerns I have with the school would be that a couple of the problems are ineffective and troublesome in some aspects: powerschool for grading and schoology in certain online assignments.
