Cause tes rocks!! the school is amazing all the way from the principal, to the teachers, to the lunch staff, to the media ladies, and lets not forget about all our fabulous volunteers......Serioulsy the best school aound:0)
Great school..very dedicated teachers that are truly interested in teaching. Also, teachers and school overall does a great job of making learning fun and relevant.
Trinity Elementary is awesome. The teachers, staff, and parents are all dedicated to bringing out the best in our children.
The teachers are Awesome and are always doing creative new projects with the students to encourage imagination and a love of learning.
We have the best of the best at Trinity Elementary! The principal, teachers, media, lunch ladies and maintenance are all wonderful!
We entered TES in January...nervous, anxious,terrified! Well, it took about 2 minutes for all those fears to be put to rest! What a phenomenal staff at this school. We were immediately made to feel like we'd been there for years. I love a school that has such an open door and welcomes parents to be as involved as they can. Mrs. Rushe, the principal, is one of the best I've seen. Her committment to the children, school, and staff is inspirational! You really get a sense of community at TES and my children bound out of bed every morning to get there. The multi-age classrooms seem to be very successful...I think reaching a broader spectrum of abilities...if you are ahead great...if you are a little behind...great. I think it is a dynamic way of reaching more children and catering to their individual needs. Our teachers are the best!
We moved to Trinity because of the school! Our oldest started 1st grade at TES and in fall 2009 he will enter 5th grade and our middle child will enter K. The children are always challenged, the multi-age classroom is wonderful, but a huge balancing act for the teachers...hence only the best are hired and only the very best stay! I find the Administration and most especially the principal to be on top of everything, from student test scores, clubs, school maintenance and even doing lunchroom duty! The administration spends a large part of the school day out in the classrooms interacting with the students and teachers; hence I see their cars in the parking lot late in the day still in their offices catching up on all that 'Admin' paperwork. If you are looking for a school that takes the job of educating children very seriously, TES is it!
I have just read the comments regarding Trinity Elementary and have to agree that the Priniciple is very very uncooperative, very set in her ways and not at all willing to work with the parents or her staff. I feel bad for all that work there, for after speaking with the teachers over the last 4 years that my children have attended this school, their incapabilites are actually the result of the principle being so unwilling to listen to their ideas. My advice use Pasco's school choice find a school with a principle that cares and takes your and the teacher's ideas into consideration.
Trinity Elementary is a spectacular school! The teachers work well together. The children are engaged during every moment of the day. And, the administration is supportive and caring in all situations. Despite what some of the parent reviews have stated. I encourage all parents to spend whatever time they may have getting to know the staff and administration at Trinity. They truly are a special group of people!
Overall I feel the school provides a good education. I compared the material my son was doing in 5th grade to a local private Christian school and he had already learned their 6th grade math. The private school uses the A-Beka program. I am however disappointed in the fact that the administration is very unfriendly and that includes the principle. The assistant principle is very friendly. The school is very well kept and the classrooms very nice. It takes some getting used to the grading system if you are used to having grades shown as percentages. At this school everything is check marks. Checks, check +, or check -.
Our brief experience with trinity teachers was very positive. PTO is outstanding. Great teachers - caring and friendly. Lunch staff and other staff were excellent. Not so with administration and office staff. Huge disappointment.
I have been pleased with the teacher focus, skills and attention in the classroom, but would like to see more skilled time spent on activities other than coloring. My son will be going into 1st grade this year, and it seemed that he was not fully challenged enough in Kindergarden. I hope to see a change in 1st grade. The principle of the school is VERY unapproachable and unsocial. She walks the school like a militant and does not go out of her way to say hello or converse with parents. I as a parent never felt very welcome on school grounds. I had lunch with my son every week at the school and the principle never once introduced herself or conversed with me. The assistant principle is friendly. There needs to be more extracurricular activities as well.
Prior to moving into the area we heard wonderful things about Trinity Elementary. We soon learned few were true. I would have to rate it as the biggest educational dissapointment in my childs school career. I agree with some of the other reviews that the administration is not very approachable. We also found the now former Asst. Principal to be extremely negative. I'm happy to see that she has left the school for the sake of the students. Our child will thankfully be attending another school this year.
Emphasis on reading. Makes kids excited about reading. The few teachers I know are wonderful. The principal is not very approachable. Not very happy w/all the policies and the way they are enforced. Acedemic wise you have to go above and beyond to get 'E's' or A's. They do not celebrate the little things which I think is big plus especially w/the small children.
We have been very happy with this school for the past five years. The Administration as well as all the teachers my children have had have been wonderful.
I have been very pleased with the academic achievements of this school. I believe that Trinity Elementary strives for excellence. Music, art and P.E. are taken throughout the week; however I would like to see more extracurricular activities for grades K-2. Overall, I am very pleased with this school.
This is my child's third year at Trinity Elementary. The first year I was pretty happy with her education and the teacher she had. She has since been placed in a classroom with a teacher who is new at teaching and I have not been happy with the results of that. Trinity Elementary ignores when children are misbehaving at the expense of the children who are behaving. They do not correct when it is needed nor do they reward when it is needed. Also, when bringing any concerns to the principal, they are quickly dismissed and her uncaring nature is revealed quickly. We are currently looking to remove our child and admit her into an overall better school.
