I attended Trinity from pk-8th grade and absolutely loved it. The classmates I grew up with were more like family than friends and I still go back and talk to teachers I had in 1st grade. It is a loving and nurturing community and makes every kid feel welcome. Having switched to Newman in high school, I miss trinity's nurturing spirit even more. The pastoral life was also a wonderful part of the school, and allowed me to form my own opinion on religion. This is hands down the best lower/middle school in the state.

Our son attended Trinity from Pre-K through 8th. I feel he is prepared not only for life but for academics anywhere in the city or beyond. Achieving the academic foundation that you will receive may be demanding at times but the feeling of accomplishment is unsurpassed. Congratulations to all graduates and especially the teachers and staff for a job well done!

Trinity is an awesome school. There are teachers that will give the best education you can get. It is by far the best school in all of New Orleans. From Pre-K all the through you will get a complete education. The facility may not be as amazing as other schools you looked at but, the teaching skills you can't get anywhere else. It not only gives good teachings but your child will learn how to be respectful and especially gentle, generous, truthful, kind, and brave!! This will not be a bad decision.

Trinity encompassed some of the most wonderful years of my life. There is an undescribable atmosphere of warmth and knowledge at Trinity. Hands down, this is the best school in the city.

One of the most prestigious schools in the city, Trinity boasts a wonderful education for its students. Trinity teaches its students not only pure knowledge, but also fundamental skills for life; moreover, the school teaches young children not to memorize facts but how to comprehend and think critically. Being a graduate of Trinity ('03), I can assure you that Trinity will give your child a wonderful education and skills that can be used all throughout life. Also, Trinity has a great community value to it. The school values its students and their families; there is not one person in the school who won't know your name by the end of your years there. The Trinity community itself is probably the best party about it, giving you and your child a sense of family in your school.

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.
