I entrust my children to Trinity's wonderful teachers and staff. Trinity is filled with loving, Christ- centered staff and students. They have a rigorous curriculum, great sports and music programs and Jesus is taught everyday. It is a blessing to our family.

My family absolutely loves Trinity. There is a wonderful balance between acedemics, sports and the lessons of Christ. I couldn't be happier with the teachers and staff. My kids are thriving acedemically and socially.

Both of my children attend trinity! With my experience as a parent, I love this school! The teachers are very helpful and so is the staff! My son transferred from public school! He wasn't learning anything at public school! I'm very grateful to have such loving people at this school! And I like that they don't have cafeteria lunches! Because I've seen what they serve at other schools! My son went from not reading at all to second grade level in 6 months! Great school

Doesn't sound like a school I would want my kids to go to. No lunch program. I would think that would be an important issue.

Visited with my wife. School only cares about athletics. Visited one of the classrooms and the teacher would not even acknowledge us. Principal had to apologize. Did not feel welcome there. Felt we were misled. Won't be sending our children there.

School is not set up to provide additional support services unless you are a member of the parish. School is primarily focused on athletics. 75% of students go to that church. If you are not from the parish, suggest looking elsewhere. School was not accomodating to my student's needs. I was very disappointed in the non-responsiveness of the Principal. I would really suggest you take a really close look at this school before sending your kids here. The community does not really care about the students and if you are an outsider, you will always be one. They do have a really nice gym though, if that is important to you.

Trinity Lutheran encompasses everything a parent is looking for, a teaching staff that nurtures students academically and socially by instilling Christian morals and beliefs. Their high academic standards enforce study habits and knowledge that will carry them well into their college days. Students come out of Trinity with the ability to be successful citizens that make the world a better place. If you are looking for a place for your child to succeed, develop high moral standards and have great self esteem, Trinity is the place for you.

I can't say enough great things about Trinity. They offer a top notch education, with best in the state athletics, as well. The teachers really go the extra mile and the principal is very involved in the day-to-day goings on. A wonderful private school education for a VERY reasonable cost.

I went to this school for Pre-K through 8th grade and was extremely excited to get out of its walls. Though there is currently no manditory uniforms, there is an extremely strict dress code which limits students to wearing solid colored polo shirts tucked into dress pants. It also limits boys to having their hair above their eyes, ears, and collar. Most of the teachers are unfair to their students or 'play favorites' and treat some students better than others. While parents might consider this a good school, please let your children have some say in whether or not they attend Trinity.

My husband and brother-in-law both attended Trinity many years ago. We decided to give the school a try for our son who is now in First Grade. Everyday I am convinced we made the right decision. My son has flourished by going to this school. He is becoming a well-rounded young boy. The academic programs at Trinity are wonderful. My son can practically read anything put in front of him and he is in first grade. My son is surrounded by kind, hardworking children in part because of the teaching style of the faculty and also because of the high level of parental involvement at Trinity. Although Trinity is not a large school, it does provide everything a parent could want for their child's academic career. Take a look at Trinity, it's a wonderful place for your child to learn and grow.

Trinity Lutheran provides children with a high quality education in a Christ-centered environment. My wife and I searched high and low for the best Chritisan Education in the area, and we are now convinced we made the right choice. All the staff, from a thoughtful principal, dedicated professtional teachers and support staff will provide your child with the skills necessary to succeed in the future with a value system centered on Christ. Extracurricular activities abound and are excellent, providing each child with well rounded life experiences that will guide them throughout their entire lives. Take a close look at Trinity, I believe you'll like what see and won't turn back.

Trinity Lutheran has and will continue to provide a fine 'Christian' education for its students. It is the perfect partner for any parent who wants their child educated in a Christian environment. The staff is very dedicated--most of them spending their entire teaching ministry at our school, which speaks volumes about their dedication to their Lord, the children and their 'call'. We have a very fine facility. Our Science, Math, English and Literature curriculum have been recently updated. We have a wonderful Science Lab, Resoure Center, Computer Lab, Music Program and Art program. Our Art instructor retired last year and currently the Art program is being taught by a team of very qualified, capable parents. We are currently seeking a candidate to fill the vacant Art teacher position. Our school participates in the MEAP program beginning at 7th grade. Because we are not state funded, the MEAP tests are not offered to us by the State, they do provide testing sites for our students at the 7th grade level. I have always found our principal to be very available. Trinity also offers a 'Resource Room' for students who need addition help. There are many extra curricular activities available from Boy Scouts to sports to worship and service opportunities. Trinity is a family friendly school who has been a wonderful partner with us as we raise our children in a Christian home.

Parents rejoice! This is a school where the principal truly cares about every student and knows most all by name. The teachers are well educated, creative, kind and loving. The environment is Christ-centered, where you see the faculty living out their Christian faith. The many extra-curricular activities and sports offered round out a strong academic education. Emphasis on music (choir, instrumental, theory) is exceptional. We are glad to be a part of this wonderful school!

After having children at Trinity for 17 years, I am extremely pleased and enthusiastic about this school. It consistently produces high school valedictorians and top-tier results in standardized testing. Graduates typically qualify for advance placement. Dedicated teachers and staff represent a balance from new grads to highly experienced. The technology program is directed by a former computer industry executive who left a fasttrack career to teach children. The science lab is high school quality. Professional special education services are provided. Fine arts include choir, band, strings, and art instruction. School is operated by Trinity Church with leadership elected by congregation and appointed by church council (not by the principal). Accredited by Michigan District and currently pursuing National Lutheran Schools accreditation.

Parents beware! An unavailable principal in addition to budget and funding problems, make providing enrichment and state of the art technology impossible. Non-creative, teaching environment. Emphasis at this school is sports, not academics. School does not participate in state MEAP tests. Beware of Iowa results, these results are based on a full district, not one school, so can't be adequately compared to local districts. No foreign language program. Dated materials.
