No, Tri-Sprintec is a standard or medium strength birth control. Standard or medium strength birth controls contain ethinyl estradiol 30 or 35ug or in 30 to 40ug phased preparations.
High strength preparations contain either ethinyl estradiol 50ug or mestranol 50ug. These provide greater contraceptive security but increase the possibility of side effects. They are used mainly in circumstances of reduced bioavailability (e.g. long term use of enzyme inducing medicines such as antiepileptics).
