This school really tries to foster academics and goes out of it's way to ensure no child is left behind. They have mandatory homework club for any student that starts to fall behind. My daughter is in the honors program and it is challenging and the teachers always push the students to do more. The only downside to this school is the girls sports coach. If your daughter plans on participating in sports this is not the school for you. The coach is a bully and many girls stop playing sports just so they don't have to play for him.
I love Tri-County! It is like home! Tri-County provided both our boys with the skill set and confidence they needed to succeed in anything they attempt. Whether it is Academics, Shop or Athletics the students are taught respect- respect for their facility, respect for others and mostly respect for themselves. The students are treated as members of the work force, they have responsibilities and are expected to do their job. The teachers are second to none. They go above and beyond to help any student who wants help. There are so many trades to choose from and the exploratory program gives each student a good overview of several of the different programs. Tri-County thoroughly prepares their students for what ever their futures holds. Tri-County also offers many extra-curricular activities and sports - nothing is missing to provide your child with a well rounded high school experience. Both of our sons have chosen different paths. One has worked hard in his trade and at 21 is a member of the Boston Pipefitters Union. The other son is attending college and loving it. Becoming a member of the Tri-County community was definitely the best decision we ever made. No regrets.
Tri-County, where would my kids be without you? They are thriving, happy and successful, and I am SO happy that we made the decision to send them there. It's the cleanest building I've ever seen, and the pride of both the students and the staff is evident. The vocational programs are varied and wonderful, and prepare the students for life after high school. The academic teachers are wonderful. They work so much with the students to help them become successful. A super place that I just can't say enough about. One of my children still goes back to visit her teachers after all these years. She was disappointed for her youngest brother that her favorite History teacher no longer works there.
