I never realized how well Troy High prepares its students for college. I am so thankful for going to this school and the teachers are great. If you want to learn they will teach you. If you want a friend they can be one. The choice, as always, is yours.
My daughter graduated from Troy High. She struggled off and on through her four years at Troy. But with the encouragment and support from teachers and adminstration she successfully graduated and is attending college. I am extremely proud of her accomplishments and was very happy with the support she recieved.
Kids from THS go on to do at least as well in college as they did in high school~we consistently hear that they are well-prepared and ready for the next step!
I've been here at this school for almost one year now, just finishing up freshman year. The teachers here actually care about students' success and help them to get the best they can. There are so many clubs to do and the fine arts are also excellent. The food is good, but lunch itself is pretty crowded you gotta get first in line. the facility is VERY nice, oustanding compared to other high schools around, classroom materials are good and up-to-date. This school also sends several people to Ivy leagues and other outstanding colleges. The athletics are also a big part of school culture, because everyone supports their classmate athletes, and Troy does well every year. The people here are just fine, although some can get rowdy at times, but you just ignore it grab a group of friends and its a really fun and nice place to be. Except just one thing: the counselors. they didnt help me at all when i needed help cause i was stressed about my personal problems or when i needed help scheduling
Very good school with excellent teachers. Students do very well when they graduate.
The High School has been a blue ribbon exemplary school for years. The focus is not only on academic achievement, but integration into the social organizations there as well.
As a parent of a recent graduate and a current junior, I am very pleased with Troy High. The level of education and the plethora of choices available put this school in a class of it's own. The quality of teachers vary and one must 'do your research' to avoid the duds. But the duds are the exception. I also give kudos to the new administration - specifically Mr. Dziak. He is an eloquent moral man that has brought needed leadership to the school.
Troy High is a disapointment! The administration is more worried about punishment than academics! They really need to read their mission statement because they do not follow what they preach!
I actually graduated in 2008 and through this great school took 10 AP classes and received a lot of college credit. I think it's a really under-appreciated school on a national level because I'm currently at the University of Michigan (almost 100 kids from THS come here yearly) and I am so much better prepared than the other students. Troy High is actually the biggest 'feeder' school to UofM, and being a pretty decent college that means a lot.
I graduated in 07, and now attending Central Michigan. Central has made me feel ahead of many other students here, and I didn't exactly have the best GPA at THS, but compared to other high school kids with higher GPA, I was more prepared. bad thing about the school is the counselors, my counselor didn't really care, and mislead me with wrong information many times. I could have gone higher with better guildence
I moved to Troy for the school district and have mixed feelings about the quality of the school. What it has going for it is a core of academically oriented families who help preserve an environment conducive to learning. The orchestra and band programs are outstanding and there are lots of AP courses. The teachers range from bad and rude to very good and nice. The school is 25% Asian, but the teachers are 100% white and espouse a dated suburban middle class (to whom blacks and asians are curiosities) outlook as their value system. More recently, under the new Superintendent, the administration has turned decidedly anti-academic achievement, discouraging testing out of classes and working to prevent it and one wonders to what extent it is based on the ethnic mix of students choosing academics over football.
My children will be seniors next year! In the three years I as a parent feel that there are some good teachers and some bad. We moved to this district because of all the high ratings! I am very disappointed with the counselors. I have sent e-mails with no reply and when I call there not available and to top it off I spoke with the head of the dept. and she didn't follow thru on her promises.
I graduated from THS in 2006 and I cannot stress how well the school has prepared me for college. Her at Michigan State University I feel I am ahead of many students many academic categories and in life in general.
Troy High School truly is the premier school in the state. The concentration on academics and support for extracurricular programs is outstanding. The teachers excel in keeping students on the right track and aid is always there when requested. Teachers give up their own time to help students progress. Extracurricular activities also have a strong presence. There is a wide variety of clubs and groups to join. The sports teams are always contenders and the music program at the high school is one of the best in the country. Troy High school is a place where no one will feel left out because of great diversity and everyone is given the opportunity to succeed.
This is a great school! you cant get much better than this and if u are thinkin of enrolling your child here it would be a fantastic experience for them
Great school. I never knew there could be schools with such a great standard. Every aspect of the school- ethnicity, state rank, extracurricular activities, teachers, and more- is satisfying. I've been to many schools, but this would definitely be the best school and my first choice. If you want your kid to go to a college like Duke or some other highly competitive college or career, admitting your son/daughter in Troy High would be your best decision.
As a student at Troy High, there's alot to be said. The classes are taught well, and you feel like you learn, but overall, if you are thinking about where to send your child, do not send them here. The enrollment number is not correct, there is well over 2100 children attending everyday, and it's too many. The school counts your child as a number or statistic versus a human. Its not what its all cracked up to be.
Troy High has been named one of the best high schools in the United States by U.S. News and World Report and has been named a National and Michigan Exemplary School. I had two children (one girl and one boy) graduate from Troy High and they both loved their Troy High experience. Troy High provided excellent preparation for college, where they both excelled. Excellent academic, activies and athletic programs are equally supported and are available to all students. Everything from Football to Theatre, Science Olympiad to Young Writers...and everything in between...is offered. Parental involvement is outstanding...and encouraged. The strong teaching staff and administration truly care about the students. The campus, which is located in a beautiful neighborhood, is first rate. I have always been thankful that my children graduated from Troy High School.
