This is my old high school and academically it is a great school. I graduated in 2002 one yr early. My class that I was suppose to graduate with 2003, we were the 1st high school to accomplish exemplary status for the TAAS test 2002. I was in the applied learning program, a college prep program. You can go far with what this school offers to assist their students to succeed. They have trade programs such as brick laying, autobody, welding just to name of few. Many students leave with careers under their belts or with all the neccessities to conquer their goals.

People were always talking wonders about this school, so I came. Since you have to apply to get in the kids try to stay in the school. There are some really responsible kids and good teachers. I also feel like the kids aren't mean, I haven't seen a single bully. Kids from all over Fort Worth come here. I had really great techers last year and I'm looking forward for another good year this year.

I'm a 2010 graduate of Trimble Tech HS and though I had a wonderful four years, I felt that Tech could've better prepared me for college. The efforts of the handful of intelligent, dedicated teachers I had the fortune of meeting are often hampered by administrative logistics or disinterested students. Aside from its fledging Advanced Placement program, which could still use some work as its effectiveness is compromised by the counselors' refusal to remove students who obviously cannot handle the workload, I doubt that a great deal of Tech's graduates are adequately prepared for college. That said, if a student has the drive and initiative to ask for help and seek out Tech's resources, it would make for an excellent high school experience.

I am a former student, I will tell you that my experiance at Tech was great, the social part, you do have lots of fun doing things with friends and doing extracur. activites, so most current students will say that it is a great school, but a present student having a great time will not be able to tell you if this is a good school or not because a 16 or 18 year old is mostly concerned about going out and having fun, I mean think about it, when you were that age, if you didn't get much homework and you still made 'A's wouldn't you love it too. As a former student looking back at this school, this was not somewhere that I would like to send my kids to school, not because of the students, but the adminstration,staff,and teachers. You are not prepared for college after high school.

I graduated class of 2008 and let me tell you a loved it. This school has so much to offer to students, opening doors for them that an a regular school wouldn't even an option. I was in the health and science department and it gave me so much to look forward to. I 100% recommend this school for any future students.

I m a senior at Trimble tech high school and I m glad that I m graduating from this great school. I went to my home school before coming to tech and it s a BIG difference. The teachers and administration spent more time disciplining their students than teaching them. I didn t like it and I felt bad when I had to go to school because I felt like I was getting punished just because the other students around me had a behavior problem. When I came to tech it was like a breath of fresh air. All my teachers where helpful and had one thing in mind how am I going to help my students get to the next level and to graduate. This year has been the best year. I graduate with a 3.6 and knowing that I will go to college and major in business management thanks to the courses at tech.

Im a 9th grader at tech and its a pretty good school. Most likely you will get lost the first day and maybe the second since the school has 4 floors. But you will get the hang of it. Its actually veryy easy. Im pretty happy that I got accepted to this school. The teachers are great..well some of them. I think if youre kinda having doubts about going to this school..well dont. Its a great school. :)

My daughter is a senior at Trimble Tech this year. She has been able to have a very enriched educatiohn. She is in the Health and Sciences Technology program and knows exactly what field in Health that she wants to get into after volunteering at a hospital last year. The school has encouraged her to take AP classes to be more ready for college. She is #1 in her class and has been for the 4 years she has attended. The teachers, councelors and Principal and all the othr staff have been very encouraging to her and helped her to structure her education for her future.

I am a graduate of 2008. I enjoyed the school, teachers, opportunities and peers. If I had children I would be confident that they would have the materials that they need at this school. The body of the school is its staff and students, we are what makes this school so great. It is not easy but its what makes you that step further than others. I am also proud to say that during our graduation we were told that we made a record of the most graduates graduating with a Recommended Diploma:D

We are a family of Bulldog graduates. You can't imagine the thrill to know my son graduated from this wonderful FW establishment, and that my 6th grader will graduate from there as well as me & my husband. We have a wall of Trimble Tech diplomas and couldn't be more proud! This school has gotten better and it gets better each day. When you graduate from Tech, you are proud to be a Bulldog year after year. The applied learning is excellent, as well as it's health curriculum. The sports are amazing, and I know the parents have to be involved for this school to work as well as it does, and it doesn't hurt that the teachers and staff have as much bulldog pride as the students and exes!!!!

I am very proud of the students attending Trimble Technical High School, they have proven to be a very good and presentable class. I heard about the articles written about this school, they weren't talking very nice about them so, what I did was went in there about three times at different times of the week and specially on a friday afternoon. They treated me like one of them, they were respectful and nice, just like any other school, well, not like any other school, they were better. Some students even showed me around the school, told me what their plans were for the future and I am very proud that my son goes there!

I couldn't have made a better decision for our children, than trimble tech. they are the number one exemplarary high school in Fort Worth. The teachers always give the students a hundrend percent of their attention, especially Mr.McGinley so our children can learn something new day by day.

This school is great! The teachers, administrators, security, and students are the best. Alot of people think that because the school's population consists of minorities that there is alot of problems, but there really aren't any. Everybody gets along with everybody and tries hard to do what they are supposed to do that's why our motto is 'Trimble Technical - Where Failure Is Not An Option.'
