I have twin daughter heading to the 5th grade. My girls have been with Trip since 1st grade. I absolutely love Trip. The teachers go to the moon and back for the students. I want to send a special shout out the 4th grade teacher of the year in my heart Mrs. Maunder. I put both my girls in the same class for the first time. It was the best thing for my family. No more going to two different classes, two different homework assignment or two different field tip dates. I have work with Mrs. Maunder on class projects a few times through out the year and she is alway pleasant and joy to work with. Trip is a great school. Sincerely, The ECR Family

I love TRIP, my daughter is going to the 2nd grade. She has been there since March - K. Her teachers are so attentive, and they are always so caring and informative. Mrs. Jones is her 1st grade teacher and I love her. My daughter Tirzah loves to be in her class. She is fair and well experienced. The school itself is clean and friendly staff. I LOVE TRIP

My son is in Kindergarten at Trip and I absolutely love his teacher and the school. His teacher keeps me informed about how he is doing and responds to every email, question etc in a timely manner. A bad experience with the receiptionist doesn't constitute a unsatisfactory rating in my opinion. I can't wait until my 1 year old joins his big brother at Trip--even if just for a year. I am looking forward to next school year. I hope his 1st grade teacher is just as nice, caring and professional as Mrs. Andrus has been the entire time she has taught my child.
