Ive went to this school all my life and i have to say its very slack. Its not that strict. But if you are doing something wrong and you are caught you will be dealt with. Its not that scary of a school. Its a big joke though.
This is my school. I love it here. I went to public school but was constantly bullied so I went to Trinity. I wish I went here sooner the teachers are really cool, especially Mr. Stankamp. His critter room is fun
The current staff is incredible. There has been too much administrative turn over in the past few years, it's true. But the current principal is amazing. The old principal and pastor were too set in their ways, but the new team is doing great. You can really tell they care about the kids. My son had an issue with being bullied and when I brought it to the administration they addressed it completely. The principal investigated the matter and the pastor helped calm our fears about it continuing and convinced us to keep our kids in the school. They even had a special anti-bully seminar shortly after the incident. While no school is completely bully free, Trinity's Christian values seem to help keep things better than they are in the public school. All in all, I think Trinity is a great school and the only place I would send my kids.
The leadership has been lacking since many of the long term pastors and principle have passed or left the school. It will take many years for them to get back on track to excellence. Current leadership must change.
I have mixed emotions about this school. The classroom setting offers a "Stand and deliver" approach to learning. Small groups and individualized instruction is non-existent. Rarely does the teacher communicate concerns; however, if you contact the teacher, she will comply but does not offer student information on a "preventive level". The principal is too safe. TLS Staff should learn to "think out of the box a little more and accelerate each child' s potential to demonstrate exceptional performance.
Im an 8th grader at trinity and this school is fun at times!..I love the pre -algebra math teacher shes very nice. When I graduate this june I will always remember trinity as a good school but also a fun one as well..GOO TRINITY BULLDOGS
I'm a 7th grader at trinity and I've been going there since 1st grade. I've learned so much. I've had amazing experiences and have met some great people. I like mist of the teachers some are not so great but overall they are amazing especially the math teacher. I love our principal. I like the fact that his door is always open. He's really nice. I've had some small problems but nothing that never was fixed. I love tinity and will always remember it once i graduate next year.
