New Freshman Assistant Principal Mr. Baker agrees. “The biggest difference that I see from my previous school is that TRHS is such a community based school. Students, teachers, and the community really rally around the school to support the success of everyone.” Baker appreciates the small town feel of TR and how everyone in the community is involved.
