Stoney Creek High School

Rochester School District

 

Even though there are 1700 students at Stoney Creek High, the school works hard to provides a small school feel with individualized education for each student. The campus is only nine years old and is up to par with the latest technology; they even offer online courses.

 

Each year the school selects a theme and plans activities and events around it, such as a pink football game for the Courage Theme or writing to soldiers as part of the Hero theme. Giving back to the community is a focus and the school has an active Rachel’s Challenge program, in honor of the first student shot at Columbine, to help welcome new kids on campus.

 

When you walk down the fine arts wing, the hallways are lined with awards that the program has won. The school also recently won its first state athletic championship in school history. In addition to the interest clubs, the school also has active honor societies for various academic areas.

 

The school helps the students find balance and slow down. We let kids be whatever they want to be,” said Larry Goralski.

 

 

Troy High School

Troy School District 

 

Troy High School works to make sure that each student has the educational opportunities they deserve. While the school offers over 21 different AP courses, the staff supports students who want to take additional tests in other subjects. Through partnerships with local colleges, the school offers dual enrollment courses in advanced calculus and linear algebra, which enables mathematically inclined students to earn college credit.

 

The school offers 24 varsity sports, many of which have a history of wining. Other clubs on campus include language clubs, student government, NHS, and a service organization called Project LEAD. The award-winning yearbook is also a point of pride, and academic clubs, such as science Olympiad, Math Team and Biology Club often take home top honors at regional and state competitions. The popular arts program attracts a number of students who participate in the band, fine art, or performing art program.

 

“We want to do all we can to achieve our mission of ensuring learning for all in our community,” said Mark Dziatczak, Principal. “Our students are highly motivated by a faculty that values relationships with students and rigorous, college prep lesson planning.”
