This school have alot to afford. I love this School and the stafd is great.
Horrible School!!! Inkster is now RUNNING this school!! We already had enough problems in this district.. Both of my kids are getting pulled out of Taylor... I have been dealing with the bullying issues and the rude teacher issues for long enough.. Hopefully no one shows up for there student count day!! This district doesnt deserve a penny!!!
I am a current Freshman at Truman High School. It isn't as bad as everyone makes it out to be. Sure, it isn't the greatest school, but it isn't horrible. It isn't the madhouse school portrayed by most media today. There isn't really much of a bullying problem, and even the one's there are just a minor "Hey you're stupid" type deal. Most people just mind their own business and move along to their next class. We have improved greatly over the years. I think it's finally time we deserve some recognition. So let's all give one cougar roar for my school, HST!
This school is absolutely terrible. The teachers are just as disrespectful as their students. The building itself is filthy, and constantly smells terrible. The school is constantly calling home to report my absence, yet I'm sitting in the same seat I sit in every day which happens to be my assigned seat. Almost none of the teachers discipline the obnoxious students who hold up the class with talking, or other acts of stupidity. I don't know why my parents continue to pay taxes for this "school".
This school isn't a great school, but I can say if your going on to collage, in this High school honors classes will probably be the only way your really going to learn anything. Some teachers are very expirenced and will help you on any your work (honors and accelerated teachers). Things to know: This school is rowdy Band Program is the BEST from what I've seen Basketball team's record is usually pretty good
This school is HORRIBLE!!! They allow certain kids to Pick on and Bully other kids who have Disabilities and then suspend the kid that DEFENDS the one who has a handicap. The principal is NO help whatsoever nor most of the staff there except for One Counsellor. There are FIGHTS daily. Security are worthless. DO NOT SEND YOUR KID HERE!!!! Your KId will NOT learn nothing here. Better off in DETROIT!
Its not totally a schools fault for their kids grades. Our kids go to truman and they look forward to school everyday. We support them in their interests and if their having a problem with a class we get involved right away by going to teacher to find out what is needed to help them. We think HST is a great high school.
I have received 4 phone calls from the school. The 1st was regarding my 9th grade daughter being absent from school. I don't have a daughter let alone one that attends this school. I went to the school & talked to the principal & a secretary who told me there was nothing they could do, it was all handled by the Board Office. I called the Board Office & was told it was handled at the school. Yeah pass the buck. I would like to talk to this 9th grade girl's mother bet she wouldn't be very happy either.
I graduated from Truman myself many years ago. I thought that sending my own child there would be ok. Boy, was I wrong. Not only are some of the kids essentially running this school, but the faculty is terrible, starting with the assistant principal and down. They have helped to suck the life out of my child, and basically crush her dreams. Faculty does have their favorites. My own child needed help in math and the teacher wouldn't help and we couldn't find anyone to tutor her either. Its been one disappointment after another. I am looking for alternate schools for my younger child. This whole experience was a huge letdown for my entire family.
This school is VERY unfair towards certain students. One of the assistant principals of this school picks out favorites, and that's wrong. Truman is "ghetto" and full of rowdy kids. The teachers don't care about the students. It's just not fair. Kids should not come into this school. It's dirty, and the staff is rude. "you have to give respect to get it." Is what I always say, and the people at Harry S. Truman does not respect ANYONE.
teacher don't want to help or listen to people . kids are running the school and they don't care . i going to Truman high I'm a 10th grader there . this school sucks so bad the lunch lady's went on strike on the three week of school started back up.please people don't send you children to this school. they are saying that they are closing the school down . where are all of us kids going to go?please send your children to Kennedy.
This is a great school. They have great teachers, students, and the staff is just excellent.
Out standing school. Lots of extra help after schooll.Many programs for the students. Like ROTC, wonderful band program and many more. Also have a great handicapped program. What else to be said, Awesome teacher and caring staff. Way to go Truman cougars.
Over all this school is great.Good Teachers. They go out of there way to help. A+++ Lot of progams for the students.
My daughter justed started Truman this year she is a Junior and so far she is really enjoying the whole atmosphere, the diversity and the total learning experience.
I am a student here at Truman high school. i recently relocated from romulus to Truman seeking a better enviroment and though it is better than being at romulus i absolutely hate coming here. It's from an wide range of things from the students, especially, to just the whole school's proccess. I'm so tired of this i dont even feel like elaborating on how this school is. I most definetly do not and i quote DO NOT want to graduate from here. Some people may like this school but i for one do not. This is actually the second time since moving from NC to MI that i actually hate coming to school. I'm hoping to transfer over to Kennedy....Hopefully it will be better...
This school is one of the best schools my children have ever attended. Not only does it have Teachers who really care about the students. The counselors go above and beyond their jobs to keep the students focused on college after high school. But the many programs it offers. Great school. I am very happy.
I graduated from Truman High School and chose to come back to this area for my children to go to High School at Truman. My oldest will be a Junior this year and my middle child will be a Freshman this year. My Junior has been at Truman since her Freshman year and she enjoys it. She has joined many clubs and makes very good grades. Truman is a good school and just as good as any other public school in the area. Mr. Ellis was a good principal, sorry that his life ended suddenly. He will be missed greatly.
I dont recommend this H.S. my child is a freshman & she says that people get away with being rude and her friends & her get harrassed by others. She comes home & says everyday she hates it. I dont think the teachers help one on one. Im tired of the lockdowns because of the school shooting threats. I mean who wants to worry about that all day. I am pulling her out & doing a charter school... I strongly recommend that for other parents who worry about their children.
I'm a Senior At Truman High School and this school is not as bad as everyone likes to think. We have students that do care for school. I am one of them. Truman High, mostly a well known counselor, helped me get into four colleges that I applied to and got accepted to. It was a wonderful experience and a big help for me to start a career and to get on with my life without much trouble.
