Hello, I'm a former student of Troy Middle School and I believe that a only a student can truly say how the school is because they were the ones in it and in the mix. The teaching staff are mostly energetic and always looking for ways to help students and to make the class more interesting, and yes, their are some rude and strict teachers that your kids may not like. The students are for the majority kind and kept under control because the staff is very watchful, I personally would be classified as a "nerd" or "geek" and I only had about two incidents where I was bullied. Troy Middle School also has a small variety classes but they are usually around 30 kids which means that the teachers can't focus on each student as much as they want or could. They offer artistic and musical classes and hands on classes like shop and drama and others like agriculture science. Another note, the 6th graders are in a separate building than the 7th and 8th graders and that does help limit bullying of the smaller kids in Troy Middle. Overall, I like this school as it's a great school minus it being bloody massive with kids but it has a great teaching staff and I quite liked my time there.
This school is probably the worst school I have been to. I've been here for 2 years, and I guarantee I haven't learned a thing! The teaching is horrible. Your items will get stolen no matter what you do, which the school does NOTHING about. Plus, you will get tormented relentless for as little as 'weird hair', again the school does nothing about.
This school doesn't comprehend the well known fact that all students learn different and have different abilities. Also some children have reasons that they don't get all a's in school but some are for medical reasons!!!
My sister and I have been in this district for almost six years,and we are very pleased with it!!!We like Troy's schools because they are welcoming and have taught a lot so for.
We are generally unhappy with this school district. My husband and I have had nothing but problems with the school since our children were enrolled 4 years ago. We feel that there is a lack of communication between the teachers and parents. In children's studies there is a constant need of parental updates, so you can know what is going on in your child's life; if you have children like mine that don't give you daily updates, they just say fine and go on with something else. We have asked for more teacher interaction but so far have failed to see a difference. We feel that our children are labeled as problem children when all they need is a little extra help.
My daughter has attended this school for 3 years and am generally pleased with the education she is receiving. I do have two areas of concern. One is the overcrowding of the classes, 30+ students in each class, which allows less individual time for students. The second concern is I have witnessed behavior by office personnel and a couple of teachers that was extremely immature, temper tantrums I would more expect from a first or second grader.
We have been part of the Troy School District for the past 5 years and I have been very pleased with changes in my (2) sons lives. I am very thankful for the school district.
