Posted June 23, 2005

Hi parents or students: As a student in this school, well not anymore because I graduated yesterday I would like to say that this school has taught me, and other students the value of going to school and learning many experiences that life itself has to not taught us yet.Troup gives the students an oppurtunity to express themselves in every educational way. I will never forget this school because not only do the teachers become your teachers but they also become your very close friends that help you. Thank You.
