I have had my child at Trinity for three years - I am looking for a change ... I feel like every time I go to the school they are asking me for money ... the academics are lacking especially in grades 5-8. The principal is just plain rude ... I have heard that there is a new principal doing GREAT things at a Lutheran school located close to Trinity - I am seriously considering enrolling my child at the Lutheran school.

Teachers and the principal treat you better if you are a big donor.........Children are not well prepared to enter high school when they leave this school

This is a fine school if your child is doing well. Been there many years,not for someone who has an issue. Teachers are fair again like others special attention to faculty kids and big donars. Have had good experiences and some very bad. Not sure curriculum up to score compared to public but they don't have to do the FCAT which is nice but if you go after this you're screwed. Yes lots of mandatory donations which they call it but also lots of love. Teachers? Hmmm some are fantastic some not but if you are around and show your face and help and meet them you learn that it's a great place for your child. Any issues go straight to principal I learned that teachers have no say in big issues. Been there done that.

The elementary grades are great until you reach 3rd Grade. It is a parents worst nightmare! It is a big change for the students, as well as the parents with minimal transition time. They expect the children to be more independent but they don t give them enough time to transition and they have 30 kids in the class with only 1 teacher. They implemented a new drop off system about a year ago and we have no communication with the teachers other than by email or by leaving a message. The 3rd grade teacher is nonresponsive, does not return emails nor phone calls and when she decides to do it, she acts annoyed. She feels like she is doing the parents a favor but forgets that is her job . The principal's is sarcastic and rude. Her manners are depending on how she feels and what the parents are wearing. They are constantly asking for donations in one way or another and they love parent involvement but when the parents need something, they are not there to assist. The education level is below the education of public schools. They are overloading the students with homework and school assignments because they are trying to keep up with the public school system.

I am proud to say that I attended this school from first through eighth grade. Having attended one of the most difficult high schools in Miami, I was very well prepared. Later on I graduated from the university, got married, and had children. The time came for my first child to go to school, and I went back to Blessed Trinity. I am very happy with the school, the teachers, and administration.

I attended this school for 10 years, and the elementary school years were pretty good when it came to education and teacher equality. When it comes to 5th grade through 8th grade, it was very unsatisfactory. I did not have any preperation for high school, and was kind of on my on my own. The extracuriclar program was not very good, there was no arts, student government or clubs, the library was not up to date and the foreign language program was very unsatisfactory. The principal, in my opinion, is rude to the children and the adults. She is a childhood nightmare.

I have had my child in Blessed Trinity for 2 years and I have noticed that it depends on who you are and what you have to determine how you will be treated. I personally am very involved in the school but I have experienced with friends that they are not treated the same. The elementary grades are great but middle school lacks great teachers. The principal's manners are questionable and greets you depending on how she feels. On the other hand they love parent involvement. This school year many things have changed and they seem lost on information regading activities.

My kids attended the school in 2004 and the experience I encountered was fenomenal. The staff is completely hands-on. They care alot of their students and are on top of their academicperformance. Strong curriculum. So if you're seeking for a school that teach high values, have a challenging curriclum, and is strongly parent-teacher involvement, this school is for you.

I attend Blessed Trinity from kindergarten to 8th grade and now my own child attends the school. I can not say enough about how wonderful the school is. This school is like being a part of a small family. Beginning with the teachers that many have their own children in the school, and form part of the community and ending with the administration who is dedicated to our children. Not only academics, but their spirituality. If you are looking for a great education for your child and haveing a well adjusted and rounded individual by the time they enter high school then this is the school for you.

I attended Blessed Trinity myself when I was a child. I have seen several changes, yet much has remained the same. Several of the teachers are alumni, some have been teaching there for years, and many of the alumni continue sending their children there. Why? For the values, the religious faith, and the small family feeling. Then there is the support, the safety, and the knowing that you will always know what is happening with your children and who is with them. There is nothing better than knowing your child is safe and secure and cushioned by the wonderful environment that Blessed Trinity offers. A phenomenal school, a wonderful parish, and a great blessing in our lives.

The school provides students with a learning environment in conjunction with a spiritual one as well. The majority of the teaching staff have over 10 years of experience each and the staff has a high morale. The faculty and students that make up this school are one large family.
