i thought this school would help my child but i have been thinking lately that it is making my child have more issues then before. there isn't any issues with fighting and hardly any issues with children bullying other children. the only other issues i have are with papers the kids have to write when sent to the deans office they are forced to wright apologies about what they did or what the teacher tells them to even if the student isnt sorry and if they say it happened a certain way they have to re wright it and wright what the teacher told the dean what happen while they do this they are missing what the other students are doing in class and they are not given the information so they could catch up to the other students instead they struggle to catch up. some times when the student asks to get the information the teacher will tell them that they will get it for them but never do i really hope they start thinking about the kids a little bit more then they do some of the rules after all isnt that whole point of having the school be more structured then the public school so the kids can learn in a better environment with out most of the distractions that the public school has and so they can be ready for college the only problem on that point is the children are children and not adults but they want them to act like adults and learn like adults some times kids need to be treated like kids

My daughter is getting the best education she could possibly have at Troy Prep. Outstanding teachers, scholars and staff:)

Troy Prep is authoritarian in the extreme. The complicated and overly utilized disciplinary system places robotic behavior over engaging lessons. Teachers read from scripts and seem to have a quota of deductions and send outs they must give out in every class. No behavior, no matter how minor goes unpunished. If your only concern is your child learning how to sit up straight, work silently, and never dare to behave like a child, then this is the school for you. However, if you would rather teachers attempt to engage students before sending them to in school suspension over the smallest offense, value teachers who are allowed to create innovative/creative lessons, and believe that your child does not have to act like a drone in order to get into college, then I would reccomend another school.

The school could be great. It has quality, dedicated educators, a small but we'll maintained building, plenty of supplies, great field trips, and so on. Unfortunately, this is all undermined by a hyper focus on discipline to the detriment of student engagement. Discipline is a good thing, but students are sent from class and to an in school suspension room (where they have to wear a different shirt) for minor infractions, which robs genuinely good, well meaning students of precious in class time. Even innocuous classroom activity, like handing a pencil to a classmate whose pencil is broken, is worthy of a "deduction." This is an authoritarian school and each teacher seems to have a daily quota of "deductions" and "send outs" to meet, so they nitpick every tiny actions. Also, there is no guarantee that kids will get gym and art every day. Those two classes aren't only for students who are succeeding in other classes. So much for battling obesity (an issue the school food doesn't help with either) and creativity. Those classes are often outlets for kids who struggle in other classes, but they are robbed of succeeding in athletics or the arts if the they aren't keeping up with the other classes. Unless your child is a robot or you want them to become one, pursue another rigorous program that offers a little less discipline and a little more engagement.

There is always an adjustment period when children start something new or attend a new school. This school immediately send children to the dean 's office or received telephone calls home. God forbade if a child is shy or lack self confidence as most children are in this age group. there seems to be a label. immediately place upon them. The office staff is totally unprofessional by talking about their frustration in front of the child. If the child do not answer the teacher - go to the deans office. There are several way to reach children and learning can be fun and difficult but not a MILITARY borderline JAIL. Boot camp causing depression. Thank GOD for the superintendent office- to remind TROY PREP they are here to serve the children's right to a free USA Education and there a thin line in violating their civil rights. Writing statements without their parents permission or presence is like cohercing a confession for a crime instead of a ticket for a misdemeanor. Academically the school is excellent but the prison guard tone of the school is not for my child and who can receive a great education else where.
