Welcome to the Troy School District, and thank you for visiting our website.


Dear Parents, Guardians, and Community Members,


As we conclude our first semester of the 2017-18 school year and break for the holidays, I want to take a moment to express my heartfelt gratitude to all who help make the Troy School District a great place to teach, learn, and work.

The spirit of giving in our District extends far beyond the holiday season. In the first semester our students, staff, and parents took part in the Palouse Cares project collecting over 1400 pounds of food for the Troy Food Bank. TES once again collected hats, gloves, and socks for the Troy community as part of their Giving Tree and the Troy Educational Association continues to do their important work of collecting donations for the Sharing Tree.


Another important focus for our district is the community recognition of our veterans. TES and TJSHS district honored the men and women who are, or who have served in our armed forces once again this year.


Here is how one of our patrons described this event: “From conversations with others I believe the focus and intensity on the faces of the performers of every age touched every heart present. Your passion and conviction came through in your music. The band, the choir, the teachers, the administration, the parents etc., all deserve the highest praise for the effort put into honoring Troy’s veterans. As one of them I thank you.”


We are a community with many giving and hardworking people. On a personal note, I am particularly grateful to our Board of Trustees for your leadership on behalf of all students and staff. Your generosity of your time, skills and talents, is appreciated.


Parents, of course, are such a critical part of all we hope to accomplish. Thank you for entrusting us with your most precious gift and working with us to provide the best for all students.

Finally, I want to thank our teachers and staff who do the hard work daily in our schools and offices. Please know that you make positive and lasting differences in the lives of students, who will remember you with great fondness, respect and gratitude, long after they have grown and moved on.


I wish you Joy, Happiness and Peace this Holiday Season!

About Troy
Troy is located eleven miles east of Moscow, Idaho, home of the University of Idaho and twenty-five miles east of Pullman, Washington, home to Washington State University.  Set in a town of about 1000, the Troy School District encompasses approximately 85 square miles. The Troy Elementary School was built in 1995 and a new junior/senior high school facility was opened for fall 2003 classes.
Troy residents enjoy a peaceful lifestyle in this small town.  Troy has a strong sense of community .  It is surrounded on the west and south by rolling farmland of the Palouse and on the north and east by some of Idaho's most unspoiled forest areas.  For the avid outdoorsman , the area offers unlimited recreational opportunities.  For those interested in the arts, the universities provide a diverse schedule of events.  Troy School District patrons are extremely supportive of their children's future.
