This school has a close knit, family feel. Children develop socially, and feel very comfortable with the teachers and staff. This school is one of the best Charter schools in this county. It goes up through 8th grade. There are lots of field studies opportunities for children to have hands on experiences outside of the classroom. Parent involvement is highly encouraged, and is a positive factor in the success of this school.
Bankstreet program is a practical approach to child development. Parent involvement is as good as I've seen at any school.
This school is a very loving and nurturing environment. Though they seem to focus more on the children's social development then they do on academics.
Trinity School for Children is a wholesome, educational environment that is condusive for any child who is willing to learn. The educational premise is based on the Bank Street philosophy and primarily teaches mostly hands-on, critical thinking concepts. The testing of the children that attend this school usually test higher and with more accuracy. The teachers are exceptionally talented. The principal is phenominal and a great administrator. The school is roughly five years old and has surpassed many other schools in the county. Parents must complete a minimum number of volunteer hours to the school/community. Students wear uniforms. School has a great athletic program. For the last few years, the school has received an A from the department of education.
This is a wonderful school and is only a few years old. Is improving every year.
We just completed our first year at Trinity and it exceeded our expectations. Our daughter s first few years of education were Montessori based and we were looking for a hands-on approach to learning as well as a safe, nurturing place in which she was encouraged to use her creativity. Trinity has given this and more to our daughter.
My daughter has been at Trinity from the day it opened. She has grown so much academically as well as socially in the 5 years that she has been there. The adminstration and staff are so involved and so committed to the education of the entire child. Parent Involvement is critical at this school and we have a group of really involved parents who are committed to the philosphy of the school. Trinity is a school where the students feel safe and love coming to school every day.
Last year we were fortunate enough for her to attend Trinity.As the year started my daughter was not coping with the change of schools. At 12 it's hard to accept change. Her two teachers made her feel her value in the school. Mrs O'Dea also gave her a reason to want to be there. This school has been a Godsend. Teachers, staff and parents respect each other and work towards the same goal. 'Our children first!' They learn to not only respect each other, but that the community we live in is very important. It's an unbelievable school and all children should have the oppurtunity to learn this way. The best decision we made for our daughter deciding to send her to Trinity.
Madeline O'Dea is a dream to any parent and their children. This school has shown my children the true meaning of community, respect, education, guidance and future. I have been a parent since the opening of Trinity's doors. It is by far and away the best decision I have ever made on behalf of my children. My children are getting more than an academic education. They are learning how to become spectacular adults in addition to receiving a Grade A education. Thank you Madeline, board members, faculty & staff!
We are starting our third year at Trinity. It is a wonderful school. If you want your child to get in start them at age 3 in the EC program. I did not want this for my child because I thought he was too young. He loves it and looks forward to going everyday. They have started a mandatory $500 fee for enrichment and this can only make the program better. The test scores are under inflated because they do not study for the tests. The children work hard and are proud of their achievements. Parents are very involved.
Our girls love Trinity and so do we. The teachers truly care about my kids and take the time to give each of our girls the individual attention they need. The school's open-door policy allows me to participate fully in my kids' education and the teachers really listen. This school is a wonderful place for children to learn and families to grow. If you believe 'It takes a community to raise a child' and that there is more to learning than memorizing facts, then Trinity (which stands for education, family, comunity) is the school for you. We love it!
