I, too, graduated from Trenton High School, and like what the individual in the previous comment belives, it's not as bad a school as it is made out to be by many critics. Aside from learning how to make friends, expressing myself creatively in the diverse array of courses and extracurricular programs, playing a lead role in Les Miserables and being immersed in a student culture that helped my identity blossom, I realized that there's a beautiful flipside to every underside. Do not hesitate to send your kids here because they will be able to interact with respectable students of varying degrees of mental caliber and grow in a safe learning environment with concerned teachers. The metal detectors at every entrance and constant presence of police officers and cocaine sniffing German Shepherds help students feel safe at trenton high. 11 out of 10!

Although many parents might have doubts about sending their kid to this school, it does not deserve a 1 out of 10. I, a proud African American Harvard Sophomore, attended Trenton High and survived and lived through the poor quality teaching, the multiple drive by attempts on my life, and the dangers of wearing red or blue to school. Despite the problems inherent in its educational system and approach (i.e. organization, teaching quality, school security), I believe that I had walked away with a fabulous practical skill set-Street Smarts. It's obvious that an African American Princeton High School student wouldn't last a minute in the streets outside of this school. Death and crackheads loom on every corner when the bell rings. I learned to 'hold my own,' to be 'strapped' and to 'clap back' when getting 'jumped.' 10 out of 10. I learned something real about real life.

I graduated from TCHS in 2006 and TCHS is a very good school as long as students are willing to take advantage of the opportunities that are available. Alot of the students at TCHS are very intelligent and would like to advance on to college and into the workforce, however, they do not take advantage of the opportunities that are their for them. Students need to take advantage of ALL of the resources that are at TCHS. Had it not been for all the scholarships that I applied for and received from TCHS, I would not have been able to pay for college. The media and the Trenton community in general keep dwelling on the negative.TCHS has alot of potential. It is up to the students, as well as their parents, to put forth their interest.

New school year, new principal, new superintendent for our district. We are very positive about the upcoming changes. The PTSA is encouraging parents to get more involved at this level with regards to college selections, test preps and working together with their kids teachers to make the high school years successful. Many opportunities at TCHS, just have to get involved and be visible. Staff and Administration need to know parents are willing to work with them.
