I have had two children graduate from Triad. Neither child was an athlete; however, they both loved going to the games and the bonding experience of cheering the teams with their friends. Neither child was a scholar; however, they both became active learners and have excelled at their college studies. Although Triad may not be the best school by some standards, it was a positive experience for my children. It was a safe place that allowed them to grow and figure out who they were. They enjoyed their teachers and felt the teachers really cared about them. Although both have been out of school for over five years, both still talk about things they enjoyed at Triad.

We came to Troy after moving from Europe where my daughters attended a private International school for 5 years. I was searching for a school that would not erase the valuable education they'd received there. We've been in Triad schools (both Middle and High) for 3 years now and I can honestly say it has been an excellent choice. They are getting a quality education, a full range of extracurricular activities, nurturing and involved teachers and a safe environment to thrive. I'm so happy we chose Triad.

My son has autism and Triad's special education program has enabled him to grow academically and develop the social skills needed to live independently. Their program also helps parents by providing information for and about students that we may not have knowledge of.

The faculty is wonderful and my son has loved his experience at Triad. Academics, athletics and music are strong.

Academics were great, especially considering the small size compared to some surrounding schools. Anyone that has something negative to say about their academic programs did not challenge themselves to the numerous honors classes, clubs and organizations that Triad offered. Your education depends on you, and your effort. Staff was helpful and offered a great environment. Sports were a great way to get involved and those who refer to Triad as a 'sportsplex' should keep in mind that many of their athletes are also state scholars and on honor roll. For others, it offers possibly the only opportunity to go on to college.

Extremely clickish staff/teachers. If you have grown up in this area you are automatically a step ahead of anyone else.

I have had two children graduate from Triad High School. My experience has been that the teachers and administrators at Triad will go the extra mile to accommodate the educational and individual needs of the students. I have had nothing but positive feedback from both of my children concerning their school experience there. The curriculum is designed to meet the needs of a wide spectrum of student abilities. It is a school that has an excellent college prep as well as excellent vocational programs.

Quality of academic programs. Very poor. Triad High School Administrator's take great pride in being an athletic accentuated institution. Great emphasis is placed upon it's athletic programs rather than academics. The curriculum is so watered down that even the most unmotivated students can pass the course requirements. The school board must institute a uniform policy for the student's at Triad. Think Belleville. Parents and the general public should be aware of Triad's allowance of obscene and objectionable choice of student's school attire, hair color, tatoo's and body piercings. The Rocky Horror Picture Show came to mind as I walked the hallway's at Triad High School. The Administrator's, dressed in frumpy clothing themselves, gave me the impression that they do not care about the student's, but rather, themselves. They seemed to be unmotivated, unprofessional. At Triad, it's not what you know, it's who you know. This commentary is in my opinion and observation.

I believe that TMS and THS are both excellent schools. Some of the teachers leave alot to be desired. Too many personal views on your child. They ask for parent involvement, only if it's what they want done. Also, there are constant threats to the parents that if tax levies are not passed that programs will be cut. The first cuts they make are on academics. No major sport cuts were made. However, overall I am much more pleased with THS than Collinsville. THS does have a more stringent grading system. I would rate the school overall average.

The schools are great unless you have a child with a disability then forget it. It took several years to get them to do what by law they are suppose to do and that is just on paper lets see if they do what the IEP says this coming year. With their history the answer will be NO! They say they want parent involvement but that is only when you say and do what they want, not what is best for your child.

Both of my kids attended Triad schools from K through high school. I believe that they received excellent educations. The primary grades were excellent and high school rates very good. Only lack is in having advanced placement classes. Teachers were very good and caring.

Having had two children graduate it is with personal experience that I say Triad leaves much to be desired. The teachers seem to be interested only in their suumers off and having a job where after the first year or two there is little work to be done. Same test are used over and over. Information from the school often is false and student are continually sent home with threats of cuts if levies are not passed. More money is not the answer. Waste abounds, work loads are light, and staff are not professional in attitude, job performance, and appearence.

I am a graduate of THS. The curriculum and the instructors were amazing in preparing me for college. After spending five years in college I have met people from across the country and I am thankful that I recieved my education from THS.
