Trumbull High School is a public high school located in Trumbull, Connecticut. The current principal is Marc Guarino.

History[edit]

Trumbull High School was founded in 1961 following a population increase in Trumbull during the 1950s. It was originally located at 4630 Madison Avenue, in the building currently serving as Madison Middle School. As the 1960s progressed, the town was compelled to commission a new high school to accommodate further population growth. In 1971 a new school was constructed at 72 Strobel Road, offering a then-modern auditorium (originally designed as a lecture hall), two-story media center, and athletic complex. Middlebrook Junior High School was converted to Middlebrook Elementary School and the Madison Avenue complex was converted to Madison Junior High School.

Trumbull High School housed grades 10–12 until 1987–1988, when ninth-graders were moved to the high school, and sixth-graders were moved to the Madison and Hillcrest middle schools.

Renovation[edit]

The Trumbull Board of Education has commissioned an extensive renovation program for the school, which is to be renovated to a "like new" state. The entire school will be renovated. The old auditorium has replaced with a state-of-the-art performance hall, with a new lobby and glass facade. Two corner wings have been added to the areas between A and B wings and B and C wings on both floors. The nurse's office has been relocated to a larger office in the M-wing, which is in its first phase of renovation. New lighting and ew kitchens have been installed, with an industrial kitchen in the works. A new dean's office is located in M wing and a new main office has been built.

All three academic wings have been renovated, with the exception of the flooring. The classrooms have new windows, smart boards, climate control, new flooring and a telephone for in-school calls. The lighting in the commons has been improved. The corridor where the former main office was now contains a row of eight water fountains. The elevator has new fixtures and carpeting. B House has new offices, classrooms, and lockers. A new art chorus classroom now occupies the space where temporary classrooms were located. The media center, now called the literacy center, is complete. The lower portion has computers and good-quality carpeting and furniture. The spiral staircase has been removed and a new circulation desk has been commissioned. The upper portion of the media center has a more organized feel, with dedicated offices and workrooms for the different departments. The new washrooms are modern and ADA compliant. The building will feature campus-wide WiFi, with a bring your own device policy, effective for the 2013–2014 school year.
