My experience has been pretty wonderful at Troy High. I am an honors student that always appreciates the high expectations that my teachers give me. I have not had any problems with making connections with the teachers or other administrators. All teachers try there best to see that every student advances in their education, no matter who they are. The music department is inviting and the ensemble directors look to teach students good habits. The sports teams are fun and our football team brings all kinds of people to their games. Playing during their games in stand band is always fun! So, I don’t have much complaints. I do wish, however, that our grades were weighted and that we had some more interesting electives.

I didn't like how at Troy high there are only certain sports that get attention. For example the volleyball team never wins games but this year they were 9-7! Pretty good! But not even the athletic director could be seen at those games. Of course the football team gets all the money, get meals before games, and basically pampered in school. The same for the basketball team since the principal is the head coach. Sports wise I think the school is very un fair. The school has lots of cliques that run the school. I was disappointed that all the college credit classes I took through local colleges never transferred over to my college. That's one of Troy highs marketing points, that we have a lot of college courses.
I went to Troy high school for my entire high school years. High school is really a change of life your going through so many different transitions while in high school. You may have a break up or lose a friend. You could hurt yourself during practice and have to miss a few games. I think the experience as i went through and grew up was a good 1. From starting 9th grade being afraid because the school is much bigger than middle school to having a little bit of friends to 12 grade being popular enough that I won prom queen. Some subjects are harder than others but you can always get a tutor. You learn so much about ppl because it’s different race and different cultures and personalities everyday. High school is really what you make it some of your most memorable moments will happen during these 4 years
