Trumbull High School is a typical suburban high school. I'd say my overall experience at THS was average, nothing extraordinary. The classes are pretty rigorous compared to others in the state. However, some teachers made it obvious they were here just for the pay check. Don't get me wrong, there were some pretty amazing teachers at THS. We have many "Teacher of the Year"'s. The environment at this school is comfortable...most of the time. Diversity - not Trumbull High's strong point. The majority of the students here SEEM pretty accepting. Trumbull High offers a lot of clubs and sports - however, funding for these extracurriculars doesn't seem to exist. Being a member of the track team, we ran outside in the freezing cold, over the snow and ice; the school didn't seem care. Aside from the many inconviences this school has, education wise - it was pretty satisfactory.

A school with many options. If you want to do sports, either recreationally or competitively, they've got it. You have art classes, music classes, theather classes and most electives that range from just a fun extra class that you can take to those where kids who plan to work in the field are in. There are honor societies and extra curriculars amd classes you can take after school. The levels of classes are so that you can be as challanged as you want. However, the school is inconsistent with discipline and sometimes lets dangerous kids who belong in juvie because they tried to strangle someone back after a short suspension, and will expell kids for bringing advil to school.
I went to Trumbull High through the Agriscience & Biotech program. My experience with every teacher throughout those four years was mostly positive. I felt lonely at times because everybody had their own social groups & tended to shy away from outsiders, especially kids like me who didn't live in Trumbull. Sometimes teachers intervened, but not often enough. However, when the administration acted in ways that we disagreed with, my peers become passionate activists. One such example was when they stood up in favor of a play that discussed sensitive, yet important topics. Another complaint I have is about the food. I think they should offer healthier choices, not just find loopholes in the policy.
