We moved here 5 years ago and have been very pleased with the school system. We still have children in the schools. The principals and their assistants are energetic and approachable without egos to get in the way. Tell City has a new, young superintendent (with young children) who is on top of things. 'A' rated Jr/Sr High and Elementary schools. Great test scores. This is a good school corporation, top to bottom.
I'm in between the two extremes. Tell City High School does have an excellent level of education, and we do love our athletes. But if you were to look into some statisics about Tell City's athletic GPA, you will find that not only are our athletes good on the field, but they are all college-bound. We have a cross country teams whose average GPA is Honor Roll-worthy. Tell City always praises althetic students as much as intellegent and aristic students. You cannot look at this situation with a bias opinion.
Tell City Troy Township is an excellent school. The quality of education is second to none. My child just recently began his college education and the college said that he was very prepared for higher education. Though TC has had financial problems in the past several years the quality of education is tremendous. Co-curricular activies are important as well as the education process and co-curricular activities work hand-in-hand.
