    Overall Experience: Although there are a few things that I would change given the chance, I could not have found and attended a better school in my opinion. My knowledge and mental power were pushed to the absolute limit by my teachers, and I have learned so much about my academic studies and myself.

    Overall Experience: Troy High School is located in a safe area with barely any crime and violence. Everyone here is devoted to school work and making sure they graduate. I only give Troy 3/5 because I find many of teachers do not attempt to give us extra help if we need it. I understand high school is supposed to prep us for the real world but I don't believe not helping us when we are lost in class is the proper way to prepare us.
