The makeup of the classes and letting parents dictate the rolls and teachers is the definition of bias

My grandchild has completed kindergarten and first grade at Troy Elementary. I observed the classes at kindergarten graduation with confusion. The classes were not integrated. I was told that the school set rolls by parent request. Illogical. My son was told things would be different this year. My granddaughter told me that she was the only "vanilla" girl in her class. We are not racist hence her term. She was able to make a really great friend but often felt bullied by other children. I have taught early education in AL for 23 years. My oldest sister taught 1st grade in GA for 30 years. Another sister taught 30 years at international schools in Asia. We are outraged to see non-diversified classes in this day and age. This is illegal and immoral. It is not in the best interest of any child. My son has met with the councillor who said she didn't realize there was only one white girl since there was a Latina girl. (!?) My son will soon meet with the principal. I hope this makes the school realize reform is needed!! I believe in public schools. This one better change before they lose accreditation or have a lawsuit.

A great transition to success for my two children! Teachers genuinely care and challenge the students to work harder.

I have two children that have attended Troy Elementary School. One has now moved to the middle school. We have been nothing but PLEASED!! My children have excelled at Troy Elementary School and the caring teachers have been wonderful!! My children have the ARMT and SAT scores to prove how wonderful the teachers are. Living in Troy I can not imagine attending any other school!!

I have a daughter that goes to kindergarten at troy elementary and we haven't had that good of experiance for her first year. There probably are good teachers there but the one we have is not that good with five year olds. I think things could be alot better.

A new reading program implemented this year provides a concise plan for reading, spelling and grammar. Saxon Math continues to give students a good base. Amsti with hands on activities for science is also used. Music and art are also part of the curriculum weekly. 5th grade has orf and chorus after school.
