I have written a review before but somehow it got deleted along with a few other negative ones. Their 5 star rating is a sham, so beware of that. Terrible experience here. From the teachers to the administration to the kids. I was expecting a spirit of kindness from this Christian school but since we started we had nothing but the opposite experience. New people are not easily welcomed, kids or parents. It was tough to get involved because no one would speak to us except for a few words. The children were so mean. Not all the children of course but the ones that were did not get in trouble. They have a 0 tolerance bullying policy where the offender should get suspended or expelled. My child was a victim of a bully and the bully did not get suspended or expelled. The school would not discuss with us what reprimand the bully got but they did not abide by their own rules. Low integrity of the staff (administration and teachers) we came in contact with during this incident. Would not recommend to anyone. This is just the tip of the iceberg of what experienced here. So many people have left because of this same thing, mean kids that aren't getting in trouble.

My two children transferred into Trinity two years ago (2nd and 5th grade) after experiencing a rough few years in public school. We LOVE this school and have found it to be a huge blessing. It has been incredible to watch my children bloom with Christian teachers who care so deeply and give so much. They have made wonderful friends and it has been fun meeting families from so many different churches in the area. Academically this school is excellent. One of my children came in struggling and her teachers have gone above and beyond to make sure she is successful. My other child is academically advanced and he enjoys the challenges set before him. We would highly recommend Trinity to anyone looking for a great Christian education and foundation for their child.

I have had a child in this school for 6 years and most of that time, it was 2 students. They have received a top notch education as is exampled by the fact that my daughter tested into the honors classes at our public high school. My younger child loves his teacher each year. During some emtional struggles during the past 2 years, his teacher has stepped up and helped him immensely. In this economy, our school has continued to grow. Everyone that I know who attends or has attended our school finds it to be a wonderful, caring, top notch teaching environment. The teachers are not just concerned about the Academics, they care about my student!

This was our first year at TCS after several years in a public school. We have been so happy here and know that we made the right decision by switching to Trinity Christian. Our kids have grown in so many ways this year...spiritually, academically, socially, and maturity. The other students made my children feel comfortable and accepted them right away. It is so refreshing to hear them want to pray for their classmates and teachers every night. God is so present in the school and among the staff. I can't say enough about how happy we are to be a part of TCS!

It is a true Christian school with caring teachers, staff and families who devote themselves to raising up the whole child developing each of their God given gifts. Trinity is a ministry that reaches out to bless the community and all those who walk through it's doors:-)

I love TCS b/c they care deeply for my child. I know that they will handle all things with the heart of Christ. I feel blessed every day to drop my daughter off, knowing that she is in good hands and that she will be seeing Jesus in every face that she meets. And to know that she will have this sort of love poured into her, helps us as parents to ensure that our little girl is growing to know Jesus at an even deeper level.

We have two children at Trinity and we love it. We are happy that they getting a wonderful education in a Christian atmosphere where it feels like 'family.' The teachers have always been accessible and easy to talk to as well as administrators. A wonderful investment for our children's futures.

Trinity Christian School is a prayer answered for our family. We currently have a first grader and one who will attend preschool next year at TCS. The teachers, staff and administration are true Christians who are dedicated to our children, educationally and spiritually. My husband and I both have taught in 'prominent' districts in the public school system. We would not consider sending our own children anywhere but Trinity, where they receive a truly Christian educational experience. The faith they are surrounded with at school is simply an extension of home. We believe the parental support and involvement make the school a warm familial environment for everyone. We love Trinity and all it offers our children...truth!

I love this school!! The teachers are great! They are proactive with any problems your children might be having and they get them the help they need. The staff and faculty care about the children and help create a loving spiritual environment where the children feel safe and loved. Chapel on Wednesday is the awesome! Trinity Christian School does not feel like a school, it feels like FAMILY!! I would not send my child anywhere else.

Trinity Christian School is truly AMAZING!!! It has exceeded all of our expectations. We currently have a 2nd grader and next year our youngest will start preschool there. The teachers are the most dedicated I have ever encountered. They truly make the school what it is. Parental involvement at the school is encouraged. We love Trinity Christian School

Academically, it is a good school. However, they need to have a set of rules that applies to every child, every incident. There is no set rules for physical violence. Parents aren't even notified if their child is hit by another student/or if they are the aggressor. There needs to be zero tolerance, like in the public schools. They try to cover up things that the kids do that are bad. Just for their reputation

It would be better school, if you had a better principal that treated her staff with respect. She lets the parents do whatever they want and doesn't have a backbone

I love the school. The kids/parents, teachers/principal are all very positive. It is a wonderful learning environment with extras most private schools don't have like band,extra curricular sports, drama, speech team, accelerated reader program, Spanish starting in 1st grade, Science and History starting in kindergarten (Troy public starts in 3rd grade). We have been very happy with our children's education.

This school is phenominal! The classes are small(24 max), the education is unbelievable, and the teachers/staff is loving and caring. We pullled our son from Plainfield 202 and cannot say enough about how wonderful Trinity is. He has excelled in all areas of academics, far more than in the public school. It is well worth the tuition, don't let that be the reason you do not send your child here. Parental involvement is 100%, and it really shows.
