Trumansburg has been ranked highly in terms of academic success, the sports programs are successful, community involvement is high and opportunities, such as AP classes, College Credit Courses, BOCES and New Visions are promoted and available. Teacher quality is in my opinion average, with many outstanding teachers but a few that are below average. As a four year student I felt welcome and achieved a high level of success, but sometimes frustrated as I never was given the classes I wanted and inability for staff to act. Trumansburg has a good learning environment- very little bullying and the staff is friendly. Trumansburg has dealt with recent controversial events very well and quickly.

My youngest graduated two years ago. The HS principal gave the worst speech at commencement that I ever heard. The teachers are quite good but getting old. Most of the coaches are very good but the football coach was terrible. The administration should have fired him with a hazing incident along with poor judgement on use of players and overall strategy.

My Son will be a Freshman this year (2003-2004)and although I don't know about Teacher Quality or Parent Involvement yet - I'm sure they will rate just as high as the rest! At my Son's Moving-Up Ceremony this past Spring, I had the pleasure of meeting the High School Principal. His speech was inspiring and it reminded me that I am giving my children the best Education I possibly can by sending them to Trumansburg!!

if your child participates in extracurricular activities, wouldn't you want to know that your school listened to the parent input, instead of what they needed to hear to keep their reputation and job safe?? trumansburg doesn't.........refer questions to volpenailchick@aol.com

Scores of 65 and above are passing; scores of 55 and above earn credit toward a local diploma (with the approval of the local board of education). The goal is for all students to pass the tests.
