This is a five star school to me and my family because of what it has personally done for us. The teachers are amazing and the positive community is so much more than I have ever experienced! Also, the faith and morals that the kids learn is so helpful for them to go into the "world" as caring and loving people--The kind of people this world needs!

I have found Holy Trinity School to be a source of academic achievement and character development that will certainly serve my child well in the future. I would highly recommend the school to any parent who is concerned about not only developing their child's mind but also their character.

I have had such a positive experience at this school. The best part are the teachers.Each one of them is so special to me.They are all such kind and gentle souls.To comment on any negative review...even if people have been unhappy with the school.no parent seems to have any problem with the teachers. To me that says a lot.

If you are looking for a school with high academic acheivements and one that fosters respect to and for all...then you must look into Holy Trinity School. We have been so pleased with not only the education our two boys have been receiving since Pre-K, but also the respect and behavior they have learned by being there. Religious backgrounds are varied with I feel, add to the dynamics of the school. We feel very strong that our boys continue with their education and personal development through Holy Trinity School.

The best school ever! This school offers so many wonderful things for our children. The test scores alone are enough to convince me!

I am a parent of three students at Holy Trinity and I am more than happy with the education they have received to date. All three started in preschool, which does an excellent job of balancing between structured and unstructured activities. The kids have fun with their own classmates and there is a real camaderie between the older classes and the younger -- it is a nice extension of our family. The small classes really allow the teachers to get to know their students and to teach to the chldren rather than straight from the textbook. In the end, I know they are getting a great education. Moreover, I love the kids my kids are friends with and their families -- There is plenty of variety but also plenty of shared values so we know our kids are in good hands.

My son is a fourth generation student at Holy Trinity School. He attended the from Pre-K all the way through sixth grade. This school provided him not only a great education where he was roughly a year ahead of the public school curriculum, bit also great values. Keeping him in HTS gave him a great foundation to succeed as he continues through school.

This is an incredible school. The teachers are knowledgeable and caring. The class sizes are small with lots of individual attention for students. Children are taught good morals and values. Lots of family involvement.

I have been associated with this school for nine years. I have always thought it was the best school for my children. This year though, that all changed. The administation is poor at best. Every grade has shared classes with over worked underpaid teachers. The library has been locked this entire year and completely unusable for the students. Art and Computer are offered every other week and sometimes not even that. There were far too many cuts this year and now they're looking at cutting more costs to stay open. They are looking at closing their middle school to save costs, yet what they don't say is there are no children enrolled in it. It's such a shame to see this school doing so poorly. My children are not returning there next year. Public school is a much better option now.

Holy Trinity School provides an excellent educational experience for children along with learning morals, values, and manners. The Golden Rule applies! Outstanding school

This school is not what it seems. I took my children out. Large class size, bullying, no sports, lack of interest on the administrators part. They don't want to hear what parents want. The school just cares about the money. It was not worth the money at all. No second language. It was a joke. My kids got more out of bible school and sunday school.

We chose Holy Trinity in Greenfield for our oldest child when the local public elementary school principal would not agree to let my son meet at teacher, or take a tour of the school before starting. By comparison,we were welcomed at multiple open houses, and found the faculty and staff to be very helpful answering questions and outlining a typical day. We are so pleased with how our oldest child is doing. He works hard, excels in all of his classes, and is well spoken and self assured, and considerate and helpful to others. Our second child now attends HTS, and the teachers have been first rate - dynamic, and truly interested in helping our children reach their best potential. We couldn't be more pleased with Holy Trinity School.

My oldest child went to public school and he was constantly behind, he could not learn to read. We paid money for extra help every summer and in the winter he would lose all he gained. We finally decided to change to Holy Trinity School in Greenfield. Holy Trinity has taken a shy child who would not even consider getting up in front of anyone for anything to an accomplished trumpet player, a singer of songs in front of an entire assembly and last but not least. He Can Read! They did this with consistency, old fashioned learning techniques and a feeling throughout the entire school that people cared about each child. Our daughter also now is a student at Holy Trinity and we as a family are able to watch two children grow and mature as they should. With confidence and pride in all they do. Thank you Holy Trinity.

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.
