Troy Heritage Trail. My child has went to Heritage Trail for the last 3 years and I couldn't be more pleased. Mr. Munch is always available and visable for the children. Teachers set high expectations of every student and encourage every student to do their personal best. Our teachers have been Mrs. Bennington, Mrs. Walker and now Mrs. Kula. My daughter is reading a year above her grade and loves school. Their specials programs of Art, Music , and Computers are a special plus. The art and music direction/ programs are outstanding and they have a yearly art / concerts that all the children participate in. My only draw back is the lack of PTA communication for the parents. Memos aren't timely, fund raisers are so-so, and directions to other schools are never provided. However, the schools office is always available with great information to help. I like the fact that an ID must be shown to come in the building. VERY SECURE.

I have one child that went from Kdg - 4th and I currently have another child in Kdg at THT. My third child will attend Kdg next year at Troy and I couldn't be happier with the school, teachers and curriculum. They have pushed my children to do their best and rewarded them when they have. All the teachers I have come across thus far have been excellent...Bennington, Tyrell, Vitas, Nelson, etc. etc. have all played in important role in our lives and I'm thankful there are such caring, devoted teachers at Troy. Some people have said the reading program is not good ... let's just say my now 5th grader reads about an hour a day and loves it and my Kdger was reading after 2 months into his first year in school... remarkable I say!

The communication is where this school really fails. They set up policies, but never enforce them or enforce them without any consistency. Picking your child up is a horrible experience. Its a real safety problem. I have had a good teacher, but sadly enough, I have found the majority (at least in my experience) do bare minimum and do not go out of their way at all. They really fail in the category of reading and the merit program is a joke... I moved to get out of this school.

I think this school is OKAY, but I think it has a lot of room for improvement. I would like to see some more updated teaching methods and there are some really nice teachers, but A LOT of teachers who don't seem to really even like teaching or teaching children. 'Centers' is a waste of time, none of the kids are really working, they are all messing around and talking. I think the school day could be utilized much better!

I love the school and all of the staff, I have never had a complaint about any teacher or staff from any parent whose child attends there.

My son is entering the second grade this year and we couldn't be happier with the education and attention he has recieved from his teachers. That includes everyone from his classroom teachers to Mr. Nelson and every other teacher involved. Thank you THT!

I think they over-estimate the ISAT scores. Some teachers are exceptional. Some are so-so and some are just not good at all. One good thing I can say is that they have tried to help my son who does have some academic problems. Overall, I do not like the school district at all and would move in a heart beat if I could.

I found that my daughter's kdg teacher was not very encouraging, she definitely had her favorites. My daughter is a well behaved child, who needed a little extra help with her letters/sounds - thank God that her merit teacher was outstanding in that department. I can only hope that her 1st grade teacher is a lot more caring and helpful. Also, the fact that art and music are no longer a part of the class schedule is very depressing and all the teachers wanted to know was if they could send the kids home earlier now ... how pathetic!

I have been very satisfied with my son's teachers and the administration here. I think his teacher this year (2nd) is exceptional. He has many friends and loves his school.

I think that Troy is a wonderful school. My son is entering 3rd grade and although we did have some issues with keeping him 'interested' staff was extremely helpful in working through everything with us. Also, even though there were some issues in his home class - he still loved going to school everyday and interacting with the other teachers and staff members on a regular basis.

Personal I think there are too many kids per class. I am a single father and it is hard for me too spend a lot of time with my son during the week for school home work. Not that he gets overwhelmed with home but I think all the kids could bennefit more if there were less kids per class.
