The teachers are very professional, and well informed. Some of them that are over qualified. My Grand kids get the best.


Posted April 17, 2014

I have nothing but positive things to say about the teachers, the volunteers and the administration of TOES. Despite public education being in the unfortunate position that it is in Florida, I sincerely believe my 2 boys are receiving a terrific education because of those I've mentioned and the commitment to the children they display on a daily basis.

AMAZING! Teachers & staff are warmest, most welcoming that I have ever encountered. You feel like part of a giant family from the moment you enter. Great communication, great curriculum. Best school, by far in the area (and surrounding areas.)

Hands down the best school in the Trinity area. Staff and teachers are amazing. Our kids have been going there for 4 years and I could not be happier. They truly care about the children. I could not speak better about a school. We are military and so sad to leave next year! Wish we could take the school with us. Would highly recommend to anyone!

This school has loving and willing to care for staff.PTO is great for involvement;many school clubs such as:drama club, chorus,chess club,art club,ORF club,and so many more!Ideal for the perfect school.

Great school as long as your child is totally compliant. Lots of condescension and lip service. Longleaf's staff work towards solutions. This staff is to worried about getting their professional toes stepped on. No pun intended.

EXCELLENT school! Fantastic, loving teachers as well as staff and parents! There is a real school camaraderie, and teachers are open to parent conferences to help resolve concerns. My children love this school, their friends, and their teachers.

I am very disappointed in this school. If the school has an A rating, it's because of the naturally smart students. It has nothing to do with the teachers or the quality of their teaching. My son gets only 2 pages of math homework every other week and 1 page of English each week. If my son doesn't turn in his homework, the teacher doesn't let me know. She could care less if the kids are turning in their homework. If you could send your child to another school, I would.

Trinity Oaks Elementary is a great school because it has awesome teachers, great resources, a big variety of programs and clubs for the students to participate in and everyone has loads of school spirit!!!

The added attention given to each student,as an individual is very rare. My granddaughters both go to TOES and we never worry that they are not getting the best of care and education. The teachers are exceptional. I am a retired member of the Pinellas County School System and I am impressed by what they have to offer the children.

Posted May 14, 2010

Because the learning far surpasses any expectations I have had, the faculty is like family, and the principal and assistant principal are very hands-on, making themselves very visible and easily accessible. We absolutely love being a part of the TOES family and , what I consider, one of the best elementary schools around!!!!!

This is an awesome school! Lots of parental involvement and support. We have a great principal who is very approachable and really cares about our kids and our school. She is supported by a great staff as well. We are very happy at Trinity Oaks Elementary!

About the tests


In 2013-2014 Florida used the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test (FCAT 2.0) to test students in grades 3 through 10 in reading, 3 through 8 in math, in grades 5 and 8 in science, and in grades 4, 8, and 10 in writing. The FCAT 2.0 is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Florida. The FCAT 2.0 has 5 achievement levels, with level 1 being the lowest and level 5 the highest. Florida considers scores of level 3 and higher to be on or above grade level. The goal is for all students to score at or above level 3.

Florida uses School Grades to measure the overall performance of a school each year on the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test (FCAT). Each school is assigned a letter grade (A-F) based on three criteria: the overall performance on the FCAT, the percentage of eligible students who took the test, and whether or not students made progress in reading and math. The School Grades are calculated by adding points earned from each of the performance criteria listed above.
