  • The Trico Trap Team has a very good coaching staff and the students participating are very competitive. They have won many trophies and metals. In 2009 our Intermediate team won 1st in State and 3rd in the nationals,in 2010 we won 1st in the Jr. Varsity and 2nd place in the intermediate entry class. Our coaches are very proud of these young people.

  • I had great teachers but more that didn't care. Favoritism was alive and thriving. I wasn't a bad student but the most important lesson I learned there was how not to care what people think about their classmates. Hard lesson but well worth learning. Jack Smith should not be principal.

  • i understand wanting my kids to do well but when the faculty and school board make sure thier kids do well in all school activities but actively work to make sure other children are held back just so thier children excel ,,, i see problems that are not suttle but blairing and being ignored.

  • Trico like any other school has cliques well i'm tired of the ppl who are spoiled and get treated like royalty, they coem to school and act like they run the place. I can't even BE MYSELF because they laugh at me or anybody else behind our backs, They make fun of all you teachers, that's why they suck up to you. I THINK WE MAY BE IN NEED FOR ANOTHER CHALLENGE DAY!! or how about when somebody threatens another person that the person who said the threat should actually get into trouble. Simply saying to a teenager "you shouldnt say that" or "why did you say that" and then after you question them they just walk away knowing that what the princpal just said doesn't make a difference!! Why should us "lower class" people have to walk around feeling uncomfortable or unaccepted because we get verbally or physically abused. The saying "sticks and stones may break my bones but words may never hurt me" Is a false statement!!! We have feelings so words do hurt. When people laugh at our mistakes instead of helping makes us feel STUPID. KEEP FAVORITISM OUT OF SCHOOL AND MAKE US FEEL ALL ACCEPTED!!! Thats how school is supposed to be!!!! All though there are a few teachers willing to listen, I have to say there are amazing teachers! Just rotten, spoiled teenagers who do not care about anything but how "popular" they are................
