Truman is located south of I-20 nestled between the fast-growing Westchester and Lake Ridge communities. We are unique with a small population with approximately 580 students. Although a traditional campus, Truman offers all learners the opportunities to experience a variety of choices. Some of the choices offered include:
- Advanced academic curricula
- An award-winning fine arts program
- An active student council
- A competitive Junior Cadet Corp
- A full athletic program
Not only do we offer choices for our students, but we pride ourselves in partnering with the stakeholders and offering them opportunities to be involved. We have started an All Pro Dads program that equips dads with tools in their role as an active parent. We also have an active PTA where parents get involved supporting the campus with a variety of student-centered events; school dances, 8th-grade formal dance, athletic banquet, game concessions, and annual homecoming events. We invite the parents to join us on designated academic nights in order to expose them to the academic curriculum and to connect the learning from school to home.
Our campus is a home away from home for our students. They are involved in many student groups that build social character, enhance hidden talents and build on their academic achievements. These groups include, but are not limited to, art club, Lego League, drone club, AVID, National Junior Honor Society, and National Junior Art Honor Society.
