I have worked at several different schools, and Trinity stands out as being the BEST school I have worked at. The teachers here really care about each student and put 100% effort into everything they do. The teaching methods are all research-based and progressive. Class sizes are small and the campus has a private-school feel. If you are seeking a school with high academic standards, this is the school for you. Of note: this school is known for its high test scores and gifted programs. If you have a child with special learning needs, the school will do its best to accommodate, but the reality is that the school has neither the staff nor the programs to support children who need anything more than a little extra tutoring. I have seen many angry parents (including those here on "school choice"!) who expect special services and are disappointed. This is a high-performing, academically demanding school. It can be difficult to get accommodations such as phys/occ therapy, behavioral specialists, FCAT exemptions, etc. If you do not live in the area but choose to send your child here, please take the time to understand the school's mission and make sure it's a good fit.
Is there an option for ZERO stars? Worst, most hostile, uncaring, unfriendly administration ever! How do people like this even get into a career involving the welfare of children? I would not send my child here nor would I recommend it to anyone.
The principal and staff of Trinity is horrible and irresponsible. Without prior notice, my son was withdrawn from this school on the day after Christmas break. Granted we don't currently reside in the school zone, but to involuntarily withdraw a current student without first informing a parent of you intention to do so is beyond my comprehension. I have talked to numerous principals and educators, and this is something not simply done. There are various economic hardships and circumstances that shouldn't have been considered, yet none were given other than my son is "out of my zone." I know that there tons of students that attend schools out of zone, because they have moved during the school year. For a school professional to act this way is irresponsible and I definitely Do Not Recommend this school. Is was looking to purchase a Lennar townhouse in this school zone, but this whole incident definitely changed my mind.
The staff and principal here doesn't care about students welfare at all. Very unfriendly. I do not recommend this school if you are thinking about renting at trinity club apartments. You will have to endure the staff and administrators. What a horrible shame.
I went to enroll my daughter here and I have to agree- the principal is not friendly at all! I should have guessed that she was going to be less than friendly by the fact that she never returned my calls when I was attempting to have some things answered. She was so unfriendly that I decided not to enroll her in this school, that's how bad it is.
The school is ok. If your child struggles in any subject or might have a sld they are not very helpful. They have silent lunchtime! :( The principal is not very friendly. The music teacher is mean to the kids. I'm switching my children next school year to a different school.
Trinity Elementary is amazing neighborhood school with excellent teachers, an outstanding PTO, and involved families.
I have been happy with this school. I was disappointed when they changed from multi-level teaching, but i think the teachers handled the principal change well. Mrs. Priebe is my favorite teacher. Fabulous writing coach.
I LOVE working here!! It's been 9 years and I'm going to miss Ms. Rushe terribly when she retires in January. I would also like to add that after reading many of the reviews, I found it interesting that the two negative comments about the administration should learn that Principal has the word 'pal' at the end. I learned that from an equally great public school many years ago! KUDOS TES, keep it up!
I love Trinity Elementary School because the teachers are great and their love for teaching shines thru on each student with their love for learning.
The PTO does so many great things. The principal is on her game and knows how to run a school with so many aspects to keep track of.
The wonderful teachers and staff have amazed me with their abilities to make all three of my children enjoy their days at school. TES provides a very caring, challenging, yet fun aspect to the world of learning.
Our daughter has shown tremendous progress and growth within a month of attending Trinity Elementary School as compare to an entire year of attending a private school for VPK last year.
Awesome Bachelor's prepared teachers. Caring staff that go the extra mile to see your children succeed!!
Excellent Bachelor's prepared teachers. THE BEST! Caring staff with only the best tools for our children to reach their goals!
My granddaughters are in kindergarden and love the school and the teachers. They are learning so much at tremendous speed!
