This is a good school. All the students are very accepting when you are new. Any new kids are surely going to make friends very fast. Though this school is extremely poor. It will ask for alot of money from the parents. That is probabley the only con of this school. Other then that it is a very good school, that is devoted to serving god. Your child is surely going to learn good morals. Also, this school is very strict, which is good for parents, because you know your child is in good hands.

I love Trinity. It's a small school, where everyone knows everyone. It touches my heart to know that every teacher cares, and I have true friends that I can keep for life. Every year I get closer to God, and I learn so much. It would kinda help if we could get sports or some other cool stuff. Like photograpghy or band..I dont know anything. However,after being in this school, its hard to leave.

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.
