Trumbull High School Reviews

Trumbull High School has great diversity within its student body and faculty. I have met many people from many different backgrounds and ethnicities, which has helped me become more open-minded and to see things in various perspectives. I love meeting new people here because most are very welcoming, much like the environment.

Everyone is sure to find their own little niche within the massive high school, usually through certain clubs or activities - of which we have too many to count! Anyone can certainly find a home for their interests at THS, and a family to share them with, whether it’s at a larger program such as FFA or marching band, or a smaller club such as Red Cross or Creative Minds.

Learning core academic subjects, however, is sometimes difficult depending on one’s teachers. Most are dedicated to making students understand the material, but some are very irritable, not compassionate, or lacking patience. Nonetheless, most are kind towards the students.

Overall the experience at Trumbull High School is very good. The academics are very rigorous and definitely challenge critical thinking and problem solving. The teachers are very intelligent and develop new ways to tackle the tough curriculum that is provided. Trumbull High definitely prepares a student for college as it provides opportunities to take college classes or classes that have transferable credit for their future college. This high school is one of the best in the state!
I graduated from this school in 2016, so it wasn’t that long ago! Everything about it is great and sometimes I wish I could go back to this school just relive everything. It’s a fun environment, the teachers are great, but there isn’t a crazy amount of school spirit. I mean we have a week dedicated to it which is cool but not a lot of people got Involved
