We're really happy with Trinity. We'd been at Whittier Christian, but Trinity was less expensive and we liked the smaller class sizes. He gets more one-on-one time with the teachers. Plus, the campus is so much better because it actually has grass and isn't facing the street on all sides. The teachers have really been working with him and his math scores have improved. We like the Boy Scout Troop there, too.
Both of my kids graduated from Trinity and then went on to Whittier Christian. I feel that Trinity gave them a solid Biblical foundation. As a parent, I appreciated that the teachers were very approachable and understood my children's personalities and worked with them individually to succeed. Both kids are in a combination of college prep/honors classes, so Trinity definitely gets high marks in academics. They were very prepared for high school. Trinity also had good extra-curricular programs. My kids were involved in the theater program, volleyball and cheerleading and had a really good time.
LOVE this school! The teachers are really on top of it. The campus is huge and in a residential neighborhood, so I feel safe dropping my girls off there. They're really strong academically and we particularly love the theater program. Anyways, I feel like my kids are getting a solid Christian education and will do great in high school and beyond. They FINALLY retooled their website, so definitely go get more info there: www.trinitywhittier.org
Trinity Lutheran School is a wonderful, safe, and academically focused Christian school. Despite the rough economy and cuts that have been made in ALL schools in the area, the dedicated staff at Trinity continues to offer an outstanding program. Where most schools, public and private have cut music and art in its classroom curriculum, Trinity continues to include it as part of its curriculum. Trinity also offers a variety of after school programs with competitive sports, theater arts, band and instrumental music, and paper crafts. They have a very active parents group (PTL) which is a fantastic way for parents to get involved and fellowship with other parents. I truly believe Trinity Lutheran School is the best Christian school in the area - maybe that is why it's been around for 67 years!
Both our kids go to this school and I would highly recommend it for a family looking for a smaller school environment for their kids. Our kids wake up in the morning excited to go to school. The teachers are caring and really nurture the talents of the students. They have after school programs for music, sports and theater that my kids really enjoy. We put our kids here last year, after our son started struggling at the public school. It has made a world of difference. It is very affordable for a private school. (The tuition is actually not much more expensive than the after school program I had to pay for at the public schools when they went there!) It's not a slick, upscale school, but the small classes make the academics very strong. The students get an excellent education in a safe nurturing environment.
Trinity Lutheran nurtures students to become successful in high school and beyond. Eight grade graduates from Trinity Lutheran are being accepted into the top private high schools (Loyola, Servite, Don Bosco,...). They are also being accepted into top music and performing art academies. The children leave Trinity with the feeling of high self worth and confidence that helps them stand against peer pressure. I'm glad that I have chosen to sacrafice to pay for the private education offered at Trinity Lutheran!
If you are looking for a safe envirnoment for your child with a great educational program, consider Trinity Lutheran. My children are enrolled in the school and I found that the school provides quality teachers and staff. Additionally, the children and parents are very involved which makes a great difference in the peers and associations a parent would want for their children. I highly recommend the school. It has a great after school program and if the tuition is as issue, talk to the principal. They are very receptive.
I am very pleased with the preschool program at Trinity. They have a new teacher for the past 6 months, Ms. Claudia, who is always prepared with lesson plans and projects for the kids. My daughter enjoys her school. They provide great feedback to help discipline our children and praise them for accomplishments. Recently they hosted Grandparents Day at the school. The grandparents in our family were very happy to have participated.
I enrolled my preschooler and Kindergardener at Trinity this year. I left Whittier Christian School. Trinity is WONDERFUL! They offer music, sports, and other valuable programs. The parents and faculty are great. Trinity has such a warm learning environment. I feel good that knowing that my children are in good hands. My kindergardener has a new love for school and amazes me with how quickly he is learning! My children are definately getting the individual attention that is helping them grow academically and socially!
I love love love this school! My daughter, as well as my 2 nephews, are currently attending Trinity. I was a little skeptical about the combined 3rd/4th grade classes, but Trinity is proving to do a superior job at keeping each grades core curriculum separate. With the addition of their wonderful 'pull out' teacher Mrs.Gonzalez, my 3rd grader is getting the best learning money can buy! Their hot lunch program is awesome, as well as the entire staff and principal. Our family came from a neighboring private school (palm view) and we now see what a private education should really be. Academically this school surpasses any other private school in the area. With the Preparing for a Degree program (PFD), the children have the benefit of learning life long assets such as preparation, responsibility, and organizaion that other private schools or public schools do not instill. I love this school!
I no longer recommend this school to anyone due to several things: In one year, they have cut staff, combined classes, dropped award winning theater program, lost their strong music program, dropped boys varsity basketball, varsity cheer, and ceramics. Not every private school has low enrollment because at least two of the schools which have taken former Trinity students have waiting lists. Our son has moved to a public school in a high achieving district and we couldn't be happier. He has stated how friendly the kids are and how many more opportunities he has in his new school. Parents really need to thoroughly research this school before considering attending. They advertise a band when none exists and communication is extremely poor.
Trinity Lutheran School is a very caring and nuturing school. The Principal and teachers have a very caring and positive outlook. I attended Trinity 1st - 8th grade and I have never ever regretted my experience at Trinity. I made many life long friends. The faculty is very caring and nurturing. It is a great school, I would highly recommend it.
My four children attended school at Trinity. Not only do they have a great academic program but this school has a caring family type atmosphere as well as many extra curricular activities. We have truly been blessed by this school and I would recommend it to everyone.
Great education, Christian atmosphere, safe environment. I have 3 children, 2 who have graduated and one who is still attending Trinity. My eldest in college was accepted into the Univeristy of Santa Cruz, my middle child is doing great in high school. consi
I have 2 children who have been at Trinity for 6 and 4 years. They both are thriving academically as well as spiritually. The enrollment is lower lately but I find that to create an even closer group and family feeling. The kids love it.
This school has been such a blessing to my family. The staff is extremely dedicated to providing a high quality education in a caring Christian environment. The graduates often receive recognition and scholarships based on their academic achievements. The school has a great hot lunch program, too. My children have thrived at this school.
We, too, have moved our child and what a difference it has made! Trinity was once a thriving school, but enrollment is now barely over 100. With combined grades for several classes, and with boys varsity basketball, cheerleading, drama, & music theory all disappearing, what are families getting for their money? A disappointment all around.
My son attended only 1 year which turned out to be a nightmare! the children will not be disciplined no matter what they do! all this school cares about is $. Since they have 8-13 students per class they don't want to do anything to upset the parents of the child who is causing problems, on the other hand the teachers really look like they hate their jobs! We had to change our son to a real Christian School (Calvary Chapel Downey) what a difference! it is night and day!, I really feel like my son wasted 1 year of not receiving proper education in Trinity, and truly we as parents wasted our money, just thankful to have moved on in to a better place. No wonder they are loosing many students every year!
This school is a great school. My daughter has only been involved in the pre-school program here. I must say, I was a little dissapointed in the lack of involvement. I wasnt too keen on what was going on with my child or her studies. But overall, the school is very neat & clean, the teachers are nice, and the lunch is good.
