All students in grades 6-12 now have either an I-PAD or laptop computer provided by the school district. The new Iowa Core curriculum has been accepted by the district. Test scores continue to be very high in this area of the state. The staff has been in-serviced in "Capturing Kids Hearts" which has even increased more the educational relationships between teachers and students. Thirty percent of the students enrolled are from other nearby districts mainly because of high academic standards here. open enrollment studentsRead Full Review

I've had two kids go K-12, one still in high school. I was speptical at first because I came from a very large school system out of state. I realized that the opportunities that a good small school far outweigh any advantage of a larger school system. The education the kids receive is second to none. Yes, sports are big, so is the excellent music department. They also offer an outstanding speech program. I personally know of many kids who fit in fantasitically coming in the system later. My guess is that it is harder if you aren't interested in any of the major EC activities Treynor offers. As far as a student advocate--that is what the school board is suppose to do. As long as you go through the proper channels--teacher, principle, superindentant first. If your problem isn't resolved, then go to the school board.Read Full Review

We are very happy with the academics, teachers, and the administration. However, this is is a small school and it's very difficult for new students to make friends with the already established groups. We chose the school for its strong academics, but in hindsight we might have been happier in a larger school with more social opportunities.Read Full Review

Treynor Junior - Senior High School is truly a great school system. The facultiy and staff are great who people who invest in the young people in the community. Treynor consistently leads the state in test scores and student academic performance. The school also has a great history of athletic excellence in both boys and girls sports.Read Full Review

I attended Treynor K-12, but it wasn't until high school that I decided I didn't enjoy the school. Elementary was fantastic, and is even better now because the programs and teachers have improved. However, programs for those that need special help should be improved. I have a friend in junior high that is misunderstood because teachers and administrators don't take the time to get to know him. People that don't fit the 'mold' or are different have a hard time getting a respected education. The same goes for sports - which are apparently more important at this school than an education. Additionally, I would say that if your child is going to be attending high school, please find someplace that is not as secluded and selfish, as Treynor is. Your child deserves an amazing education - something the disorganized teachers here can't provide.Read Full Review

I attended Treynor for my entire education, K-12. Therefore, I never had to deal with the things that some 'outsiders' had to deal with. It is difficult if one does not fit it. However, that happens at all schools. Academics, sports, and extracurriculars are superb. The teachers are excellent. They truly care about the success and well-being of each and every student. Although a lot of importance is placed on sports, academics do come first. Bad grades will put you on the bench, as will a bad attitude. Treynor is difficult academically but that is why so many go on to higher education. My younger sibling will go to Treynor and, even though it may have it's drawbacks, the positive far ourweigh the negative.Read Full Review

First of all, sports are a big part of school, just like every school, its a proven fact that the more involed you are in sports the better your grades will be. But first and foremost grades are the most important thing at Treynor. We have a rule of one 'F' and you can't play sports, find me another school that is that stingy. The people and students that gave the bad ratings are either parents that are mad about there kids getting bad grades or kids that can't handle the challenge Treynor provides. I don't know who gave the last rating, but your kid really goes to my school, tell him to talk to the teachers, they will definately help him out, it's no one but the students fault if they don't want to learn. The opportunity at Treynor is great, and recommend it to all newcomers.Read Full Review

When we first moved here the quality of education far out weighted that of other area schools. Sorry to say that is no longer the case. We have teachers that are disorganized, unresponsive to students and higher leadership that is one sided. There is not a student advocate. These students are out there on their own. Students look to their parents and teachers as roll models. Sad to say their are very few teachers here that care about the children reaching their full potential, they are more concerned about sports. If you don't have a ton of money or don't play sports you are a NOBODY at Treynor! That is really sad! Children are the future! What values is Treynor installing in these children??? There really needs to be a review of the administrative leadership as well as the teachers!Read Full Review

I went to Treynor my whole life up until High School because my parents were divorced. I could have stayed at Treynor and open-enrolled, but I decided to change schools because a greater part of the people who go there are snotty and stuck on themselves. I would rather go to a school where I don't know anyone than go to Treynor.Read Full Review

I attended Treynor High School and I thought it provided me with a great education. I was involved in sports as well as music. Academics are very high for nearly every student and the teachers are great. Athletics and music are top notch and have had great success over the years. I believe this school is a great school to send your kid to and they will be better prepared for their future when they leave Treynor High School.Read Full Review

I am a student at Treynor, and to be honest with you, it's a pretty decent school. However, it has some serious flaws that you need to be aware of. First and foremost, though we have a good reputation for both academics and extracurriculars, way too much importance is placed on the sports. The whole school gets off for a day every time the football or volleyball team goes to a tournament, but when it comes to jazz band, choir, and speech...you can just forget about having the day off for their support at state competitions. While a group of the students get good grades, the majority of the student body could care less and will settle for c's any day. The general attitude at Treynor may be better than most schools, but it is still one of sloppiness, cliquiness, and sickening selfcenteredness. Think carefully before enrolling here.Read Full Review
