    "Torrington High School has taught me many things, though I cannot say I've retained all of it. Everything about my experience there was average, despite the fact that I was heavily involved. The school is certainly not on the rise, and many classes are being cut due to lack of funding which does not help any upcoming 9-12th grader. I'd recommend joining as many clubs or sports as you can in order to make the experience slightly more memorable."

    "Torrington High School has a very long legacy in my family. My parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins are all graduates of Torrington High. It is now my turn to proudly graduate from the same school that was the solid foundation for my family members to attain their higher education goals. I, too, will be furthering my education at Suffolk University in Boston and feel that my high school has prepared me well to succeed in this next phase of my life. The teachers and staff are very engaged, supportive and encouraging to all of their students. The curriculum is challenging and thought provoking. Torrington High has given me the tools to succeed in a college setting in regard to academics, diversity and striving for excellence. I am proud to follow in the footsteps of my family as I graduate from Torrington High School."

    "Through my years at Torrington High school I have never seen more dedicated teachers to encouraging students learn and grow as young adults. In those hallways I met most of my friends and I am close with many teachers as well, which has given me the opportunity to not only confide in them, but the have opened doors for me that I didn't know were there. The classrooms are great as well, with desks and chairs just like any other school. The only complaint about THS I have is the bathroom stalls, because of the destruction of some teenagers a while back, and the schools lack of funds, some of the bathroom stalls do not have doors, or doors that do not close, but this is not for all the bathrooms. My only other complaint is the rumor spreading about THS. It is a very good school and some of the smartest kids I know go there and are going on to do big things at colleges such as Yale and Princeton."

    "THS has an amazing staff who truly care about the students: all the teachers I've met are knowledgable, care about the students, and do their best to support us academically and otherwise. We recently had an Art teacher win an state-wide award, and have the hands-down best music program in the area, with the band winning awards for the last 17 years or so running and participation in national parades. The theatre program is also very good. The school itself, however, is older and could be said to need an upgrade (or just more staff to help maintain it), for example, broken shutters, crumbling front steps, and a low budget at the moment. However, the staff and actual academics and programs are something to be proud of. We have 3 different paths for obtaining college credit, and multiple extra-curricular programs as well."

    "Torrington High School has a wonderful group of teachers willing to provide you with the best of education. Though it does not have the best reputation in the county, it does do a good job in challenging their students with tough curriculum."
