Troy Middle School Reviews
I am a former resident of Troy Middle School and if you're reading this, you're probably looking for if this is a good school or not, you won't get a better representation of it from a former student who isn't part of the 'popular crowd.'
The teachers... - The teachers at Troy are mostly happy to help anyone in anyway they can, but every school is gonna have those strict teachers that not a lot of students like and personally I can say that while I was here for three grades, their were a couple of rude and strict teachers that I didn't really like. Having larger classes also seems to restrict teachers a bit because they can't focus on each student individually. But their really are some great teachers at TMS that make learning fun and enjoyable.
The students... - Every school is gonna have it's group of kids that are general bullies and I'm not gonna say that TMS doesn't have them. I would personally have to say that while I was there, most of the kids didn't really weren't that rude but every school has it's bullies but while I was there I wasn't affected by them that much as teachers always seem to be close and are very watchful and their are really not that many people that want to make you into a pancake. Another note, the 6th graders are sectioned off in another building than the 7th and 8th graders which also helps with decreasing bullying.
The classes... - TMS offers choir, band, and other classes such as, woodshop, drama, agriculture science, art, and one more that I can't remember. I would have to say that they don't offer what I would have wanted to participate in, but it's only middle school. All the classes are enjoyable in some way and TMS also offers excelling classes like the Flight program and the ability to take high school math classes which I can confirm as I was able to take them.
The food... - If you're looking for a school that offers healthy food, have your kids bring their lunches from home, because the food at TMS is no where near healthy because healthy food is expensive and schools are poor. But they do offer some variety in the food by allowing you to choose what you want on a sub sandwich and they also have a canteen which costs money to buy from but allows you to get better tasting food and also some healthier choices. TMS also allows you to file for free or reduced lunches if you're not as well financially wise as other people and as a person who qualified for that I can say that they do offer free lunches and even stuff from the canteen, but only one item from the canteen is free, anymore and you have to start paying.
Overall... - The teaching staff are excellent and the majority love to help you in anyway they can and the kids mostly are kind to each other but every school has it's rough patches and the classes all have their moments and the food has some healthy choices and variety.
