    This school is one of the best schools in the state considering average grades and test scores. Parents and students have a choice to choose either local or online classes for their children while keeping themselves up to date on the JMC grade website. They have many extra-curricular activities and clubs to keep your child involved while world class teachers are helping as much as they can. Triton is one of a few schools that have Senior Seminar which helps seniors get ready for their life beyond school creating a project writing an oral paper and then showing what they did to a board of adults; including teachers and public officials. I would recommend this school to anyone who wants a full 4 year high school experience that really involves in everything the student needs to help them achieve their goals.

    I think triton is an awesome school.The teachers and staff are all very nice and they really do care about the students.The online grading allows students AND parents to check grades at home as well as anything you missed such as notes or a worksheet- they are all listed.The food is great and the extra-curricular activities are really fun to have.We have one of the best footballs teams also.This year we went to state and I think we did last too. I would reccomend this school to anyone who is looking for a great education as well as a friendly enviorment!

    Teachers are active and involved. The school uses online grading and attendance which makes it very easy for parents to see how their children are doing in classes. The theater program is one of the best in the state the music program is excellent and academics in the top grades is very good. Triton's senior project should be copied by all schools in Minnesota.
