The kids are great, very respectful and intelligent. Excellent staff all around. Great parental involvement and supportive of the community. The athletic department and school spirit is the best I have seen anywhere.....and I've subbed everywhere in Macomb, Wayne, & Oakland county before becoming a teacher 5 years ago.

THS is one of the top high schools in MI. Newly renovated, including the latest in tech. . . It's a safe, old school campus with a modern atmosphere & curriculum inside. Students have opportunities from modern trades classes and C.A.D. programs, to most College advanced placement class offerings in the area. Outstanding teachers, designed to allow students to make the most of their abilities&challenge the abilities they have. Diverse student body , white & blue collar, and in race . . positive real world social atmosphere, where graduating classes and smaller class sizes allow maximizing social growth. THS offers so many out of class opportunities, with more than 80% find one or many that appeals to their participation.

Trenton High School is AWESOME! I attended this school in the eighties and had incredible teachers. As a class A school, it truly rates an 'A'! Today, my stepson attends THS, and from an academic and extracurricular standpoint, THS is among the best schools available in the Downriver area.

A typical High School...for he 70's. The School has almost no updates since then in almost any department. They are struggling for money and downright refuse to update the building itself. We are sitting in the desks our great great grandparents sat in. The school is so broke it paying teachers to retire and firing janators. Racsim in the school is common. Only Send you Student to Trenton if Donwriver High dont accept them....

Still a good school. Many districts are having financial woes....however, the leel of education remains here as well as keeping athletics intact.

I am not a parent of a current student but a former student myself. Although there are some aspects that irked me while I attended due to my immaturity, my overall experience was excellent. The teachers genuinely cared about their students and wanted them to perform to the highest of their abilities. The education I received prepared me for college. I breezed through my first two years at Ferris State University because of the knowledge I obtained at Trenton. I do not know a lot about the current situation pertaining to athletics but I think that it needs to be fixed. Playing sports left me with many memories and it is not fair to exclude students because they cannot afford to play. However, I would highly reccomend Trenton Public Schools to those thinking about moving into the area based on the education their children would get here.

I am a former student of Trenton High School and I think that it is an amazing school. The majority of the teachers really care about the students and even though the class sizes have grown they really work to make sure that their students understand. They offer great classes. The EMT/Criminal Justice class is a college course offered to students from other schools as well as THS students. It is taught at Trenton and is one of the best classes I have ever attended. If there it is a problem with the school it is only because kids are going to always find a problem with a high school but this school is one the the best.

I found Trenton High School to be an exceptional school. Not only has members of my extended family attend but my children have attended as well. My children were involved in the marching band as well as my wife and I. All of the parents and students that we came in contact with were very pleasant. There were programs that involved every student at their own level. I could not be happier for sending my children to the school.

I am a former student of THS. Having transfered in my junior year from another wonderful school I felt no real downgrade in the teaching or general environment of THS. BUT there was a great amount of favortism to the athletes and racism as well as violence between students. There were at least two fights a day when spring came. Most of the teachers were dedicated to their jobs. THS is like any other school in this day struggling against social, moral and family decay to teach lessons and give the kids something they can maybe use in the future. A little support with this on the home front can go a long, long way.

My child started at THS this year (2004-2005). The former school attended offered a nurturing environment and was academically challenging. However, our family is quite pleased with nearly all aspects of THS, especially the dedicated teachers and my child's assigned counselor. The few real problems, such as class sizes, etc., stem from budget cuts, which are affecting nearly every school in the SE MI area. Overall, we think everyone who works at THS is doing a great job during a difficult time, and my child is happy with this school.

I am a Sophomore at Trenton High school and being here 2 years really showed me how awful this school is. Now I am a straight A student but its really hard to learn when there are over 30 kids per class. Its horrible. We dont have enough desks (which by the way have been there since the 60's and 70's) and its hard for the teachers to have control. Not to mention the sports issue. We now have this 'pay to play' deal and I hate it. I really wanted to play sports this year but I am not going to pay $70 and get cut from a team. How do I know that I am insured that money back if I dont make a team? They need a better way of earning money.

The quality of the career and vocational education is top notch. College opportunities are numerous through these programs. However, the general counseling services are extremely poor. Students who successfully find their way do so because their parents are actively involved in guiding them. Also, many of the core course instructors (language, math, etc.) are brand new and lack the mentoring of a seasoned staff member. On the up-side, there is a great vice prin. (who amazingly came out of counseling) and the temporary principal is doing a far better job the one he just replaced. Kudos to the two of them!

Incredible. My son attended a high school in Arizona and was in grave danger of failing. For his jr/sr year he attended Trenton High. He graduated with perfect attendance seinor year and almost straight A's both years. Although he had a little catching up to do with Nightschool and Summer school at Trenton, he enjoyed his place in the peaceful friendly environment of TPS as opposed to Canyon Del Oro High, of Tucson, AZ.

The teachers don't explain anything. And all of the student don't listen and wear what they want and I don't [think] that it is right that somebody can hit you but you can't hit them back. So I don't enforce the rules of Trenton High School.

I go to Trenton High School. The school does not have the right atmosphere for learning. Students wear what they want to. There is a dress code, but it is not enforced. When the teachers are out of earshot, everything that comes out of most people's mouths are negative things about other people. I wish everyone had better morals. Some of the teachers there have no idea what they are talking about.
