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.
Trinity Elementary teaches in multi-age settings. It works really well in the primary grades where they combine k/1 and 1/2 grades. The school has tons of community involvement and the children are spoiled with lots of modern technology and other great anemities our commuity is able to afford through fundraisers. I'd say 95% of the teachers are excellent. They are well versed in their areas and have exceptional personalities to make their classrooms enjoyable and educational.
Great School, but a bit overcrowded. That may change as soon as the new school is built. The great thing about this school is that you can keep the same teacher for 3 years (pod system).
Schools education from Kindergarden to 3rd grade is the worst! Students are mixed and the education level achieved is far worse than other county schools. If you are looking for a good education and not just a 5 star for parent participation - which is needed due to the inexperienced and overcrowded classrooms and teachers, think twice. Make sure you understand what school ratings really mean. We made the mistake of thinking the education is what was being measured, not attendance or parent participation!
A wonderful school especially for families with multiple children. Life is simpler when your kindergartener is going on the same field trip as your second grader. Dinner table conversations are exciting when each has a different perspective on similar activities. The teachers here are fantastic, the principal a true leader. Even the school hours are great! I can't say enough good about this school.
Our family moved 10 minutes north from Pinellas County to the new Trinity area. It is a brand new school in a brand new growing area. Our children have learned so much more being in a multi-age classroom. Trinity Elementary is wonderful school with a friendly staff.
This is my daughter's first year at Trinity Elementary. I have been very pleased with the multiage class grouping and have seen wonderful results. By the third week of school, my daughter was already beginning to read small words and perform math problems. I am very excited about my daughter's education at trinity elementary and look forward to working with her teacher, team and the rest of the administration.
they say they are building a community by keeping kids and teachers together for the 1st 3 years but then they shift the kids & teachers around every year. they are not true to their promise. principal is a little to cool & uncaring. ask around, you will get the same response from other parents.
Students are grouped in multi-age classrooms: K-2 and 3-5. I was skeptical at first, but it has been wonderful. The children are taught based on their knowledge level, not strictly based on what grade they are in. My daughter reads at a very high level, and her spelling words and reading assignments are kept challenging for her.
