I have had the privilege of sending my two children from kindergarten through 8th grade (my second and last is in his final year here). The teachers know all of the kids from start to finish. It is a warm and inviting atmosphere. I would encourage anyone who is thinking about a Christian education based in faith yet committed to academic excellence to give this school a serious look. I would do it all over again without a second thought.

I believe the individual attention and support my child receives at Holy Trinity is fantastic. The teachers genuinely care about each child and that is reflected in the classroom. My daughter comes home singing songs and building her vocabulary everyday. There are lots of opportunities to get involved in the classroom as well as supporting school functions and even helping in the lunchroom. The time spent with students creates a nutruring environment and I believe my children are not only learning about their faith but living it.

Excellent and safe environment. Teachers are willing to help when asked. Nice to be in a small setting where people know you by name. Parents are especially willing to pitch in and help. My kids will go on to the catholic high school, which most kids do from HT. Really looking forward to that, as they'll know alot of kids and it's a great school.

Holy Trinity has much to offer families. The average class size is 21 students which enables the teachers to provide much individual attention to students. It also has reading intervention programs as well as many different enrichment opportunities for students of all abilities. The staff is always working to provide a quality education. Last year Holy Trinity received accreditation from North Central Commission on Accreditation. As a parent, I appreciate that some of the teachers are even dedicated enough to spend some of their summer running reading programs for the benefits of our students.

It is a very clique school. If you are pretty you are popular as girls and if you are athletic you will be popular as a boy.

The people are very clicky. It is hard being new. If your child isn't athletic, he'll have a hard time fitting in.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
