As a student at Triton high ... i am a freshman at Triton and the teachers have a good eye on the students now ... there are barely any fights at Triton ... i think Triton is an amazing school , i wouldn't even think of changing schools.. in just this year we have had students from Harnett Central and South Johnson move to Triton.

I am a former student of Triton High School. Because of the teachers at this school my freshman year of college was easy. They had me prepared. If I had questions all I had to do is contact one of my former teachers, and they were always eager to help. This made college easy. I graduated with a BS in Business adminstration. I loved this school. Jeanne Turlington

As a student of Triton High School, I do not think that the school overall is that great. I have never been to another high school, so therefore I cannot compare it to others. The principal, Brooks Matthews, never takes action unless something major is effecting the school. I think the teachers are wonderful! Triton has a good rep for its after school activities and athletics. As a student, I sometimes feel unsecure that the staff no longer has a control over the student body, since I guess we are so large. I think my fellow students need to learn how to behave in school, because there is a fight almost every other day! This is rediculous, and NEEDS TO BE STOPPED! On a scale from 1-5, I rate Triton a 2.

Trition High School is a fine, up standing school, compared to where I went to school. There is some favoritism in the school sports, maybe one day in will work itself out. Keep up the good work, and stay strong. And everything I have goes out to Mrs Price in the school office. She is and always will be the best. Nice, Gentle to everyone, very very caring. Always has a open ear. She is the best... Thank you Mrs. Price for being who you are and the kids love you...

About the tests


In 2012-2013 North Carolina used End-of-Grade (EOG) tests to assess students in grades 3 through 8 in reading and math, and grades 5 and 8 in science. The EOG is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of North Carolina. Students must pass the grade 8 EOG test in order to graduate from high school. The goal is for all students to score at or above the proficient level on the tests.
