Troy and the surrounding area’s school systems began as early as 1891. Along with the school in Troy, there were one-room schools in the outlying areas. Including Troy, there were 15 school districts. The map below has the historic districts outlined.
One room school houses were established on many of the ridges around Troy for the children to attend 1st through 8th grade within walking distance of their homes. These schools were based on the availability of teachers and students. For the most part these schools were supported by the families whose children attended. Most children, who continued onto high school level, attended Troy High School.
