On the surface the school appears to be great, but when you peel back a few layers you see huge issues. Over the past several years I have begged the administration for better communications between the parents and the teachers, I have been met with opposition. I have had some great teachers, and met some wonderful people. Unfortunately there are grades where there is no good teachers. I personally have complained to the administration and laid out evidence to show the poor teaching skills. And yet the teachers have remained. The school does not value the parents, and until enough of us stand up and walk out they will continue to ignore us.

I am proud that my children are members of the HTS family. I love the community feel and the teachers go out of there way to get to know my kids--even if my child isn't in their classroom. The educators at this school come to work every day committed to providing a safe and warm atmosphere for our children. Many have been there for years and the school also attracts young teachers who are enthusiastic about teaching our youngsters. They care deeply about the kids and about providing a high-quality education. Anytime I have had a concern, the teachers and staff have gone above and beyond to address those worries. I would recommend HTS to any parent seeking a high-quality, faith-based education for their child.

We've been members of the is parish since 2006. Our children are now 4th, 3rd and pre-k. We live in an area of great public schools but wanted our children to have a catholic foundation. Our experience with HTS has met and exceeded our expectations. The teachers care for the children, the staff communicates well, the standards are high above the area public schools. My mother and mother in law work for SMSD and Olathe, when helping our kiddos with homework they constantly point out our children are learning at a much higher level. Our oldest child has little interest in math or reading, the teacher has continuously encouraged her and made it more fun. The teachers have high expectations regarding self discipline, organization and life lessons. Both of our older children are becoming more and more independent. They value stewardship and are constantly involving our children in volunteer opportunities. Not only do they tell the children to be good stewards they show by example as well. We are very pleased and look forward to the 10 years we still have at the school.

I truly believe God led us to Holy Trinity 3 years ago and I couldn't be happier with His choice. Academic excellence, caring teachers and a supportive community. I know my son is being grounded in our Catholic faith and receiving a superior education. His circle, and ours, of friends expands every year. While Holy Trinity isn't perfect, it's perfect for our family.

Like having a really large family, this community of parents and students are closer than you can even imagine. Everyone works together to accomplish much more than you can even imagine.

We are so blessed to have had the opportunity to send our children to HTS this year. As transfers from a public school, we were worried how the transition would be for our 3 children and ourselves as parents, but the community has been nothing but welcoming. Our children couldn't be happier and love their teachers more. We love having a faith based education with strong morals, values and expectations. This school and all the wonderful individuals in it, are working together to create a positive and successful future for our children and for that we thank them!

This is the worst school in the area. It fails in so many areas, there are not enough characters in this review to begin to start the list.

Every time I begin to restore some faith in this school I am continually knocked back down. I hope the Archdiocese will start to look a little closer at the deep rooted problems at this school and prayerfully consider some much needed changes.

This school in Lenexa has no concept on respect for others and the environment they spend there time at. The only care about school needs. They couldn't care less on teaching them life lessons. The school is trashed by the kids day in and day out and the teachers do not care. In my experience in school if we left our class trashed every day they would make us stay and clean up. They treat the kids like there are no issues besides grades. There are tho some very good teachers there that do care about there school career. But that's not everything in this world. It's sad to see them let the kids do what they want. And not teach life lessons.

We have been members of this parish for the last 10 yrs and have been part of the school for the last 7. Holy trinity is a wonderful school. We have 4 children, including one who is a child with special needs and they have been very accommodating in meeting her needs. Over the past few years we have had changes in administration and leadership, which to me has been nothing but positive. As with any change, there are some who acclimate and others who fight it tooth and nail....this is what is going on at our school. In my opinion, the parents who have had problems with the administration are ones that feel "entitled". If you want an excellent education with traditional values, morals, and a strong administration than HTCS is a great choice.

I transfered here from florida so I could raise my kids in a community environment. My daughter is an A student, reading above grade level. The school called an outside agency and allowed that agency access to my children without notifying me. Very unhappy with the lack of communication. Her teacher is great, love the academics, hate the small town cliquish attitude.

HTS is an excellent school. Reading through some of these reveiws I'm suprised to find people think other wise. Academically it is top notch...all you have to do is look at the assessment scores to know. They received the Building Standard of Excellence in Reading, Math, & Science. The students go on to extremely hard high schools and do very well. My children received an excellent education, made life long friends, and still love to come back and visit with the teachers...I don't know how it could have been a better experience.

We sent our kids to Holy Trinity School to get a good Catholic education. Unfortunately, the school suffers from a discipline problem. Whether it comes from not wanting to upset the parents and loose the tuition, or a completely oblivious administration, many kids become uncomfortable at this school if they are not part of a selected group. There are many wonderful families that attend the school, but the school experience is overshadowed by the kids and there parents. Maybe someday it will change. I pray that it does.

We've been very happy with Holy Trinity since our daughter started there four years ago. The homework level was a bit strong in the first grade but has been at about the right level the past couple of years. They have made tutoring available in areas where students may be falling behind. The activities such as CYO sports help parents and students get to know each other and become a community outside of the classroom.

I believe this school is lacking in academic success. There is an overabundance of homework given to the point it is not productive. Emphasis seems primarily on punishment rather than positive encouragement. Class ratio in my child's second grade was 27/1. The community is somewhat cliquey and it helps if you're willing to be outgoing and try to fit in with those that are instrumental in directing the school's PTO and activities. It can be draining to try to fit in here and I believe that feeling trickles down to the students. I don't know that it is the strongest in community feeling.

I just graduated from Holy Trinity, and I must say that this was the worst school anyone could ever attend. The discipline is aweful. The teachers were graet, I loved them, but the scool overall was just aweful.

As a parent of four children, we have our 3rd child here and I love it! My husband attended Holy Trinity also and there is the closest community of friends you'll ever establish! We are blessed to have a wonderful staff and a great parish! Your child could only thrive and accell in this school!
