The goal is for all students to score at or above the proficient level on the tests.

    I am a former student of Triton High School. Because of the teachers at this school my freshman year of college was easy. They had me prepared. If I had questions all I had to do is contact one of my former teachers and they were always eager to help. This made college easy. I graduated with a BS in Business adminstration. I loved this school. Jeanne Turlington

    As a student of Triton High School I do not think that the school overall is that great. I have never been to another high school so therefore I cannot compare it to others. The principal Brooks Matthews never takes action unless something major is effecting the school. I think the teachers are wonderful! Triton has a good rep for its after school activities and athletics. As a student I sometimes feel unsecure that the staff no longer has a control over the student body since I guess we are so large. I think my fellow students need to learn how to behave in school because there is a fight almost every other day! This is rediculous and NEEDS TO BE STOPPED! On a scale from 1-5 I rate Triton a 2.

    Trition High School is a fine up standing school compared to where I went to school. There is some favoritism in the school sports maybe one day in will work itself out. Keep up the good work and stay strong. And everything I have goes out to Mrs Price in the school office. She is and always will be the best. Nice Gentle to everyone very very caring. Always has a open ear. She is the best... Thank you Mrs. Price for being who you are and the kids love you...
