At this point in time tburg hs is not serving the needs of high performing students. Many parents have individually spiken with administrators. Advanced classes are being cut out and teachers let go. Board of ed minutes show two big adminisrative jobs creayed achool year 2013-4 asst. Superintendent and assist director of technology. Hs principal's wife hired into rare newly created teaching asst position same school year --see boe minutes. School is riding on high test scores of a handful of students. There are sone good teachers but a lot have retired. Focus is not at all on high performing kids -- you're on yiur own. Current hs principal cycled thru many 4-5 districts before landing at tburg in a time of "drama". He was a guidance counselor specializing as per his job and masters thesis in troubled kids.

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.
