This is a great school for anyone who wants a quality education. Great prep for college, and amazing teaching staff.

The school is very hard and rigorous. The curriculum is hard to follow and my child is not thriving. The teachers are not very flexible and it is bringing my son down. It is definitely not the right school for my son and I don't think for anyone.

As a parent of a former student, I believe that Trinity offers the best academic curriculum in the City. It is a school of excellence and as such sets the highest standards for all involved, the students, teachers and the parents. The Lower School is simply amazing, being both nurturing and academically strong. The students are caring and dedicated to studying; at times, the school can become a bit too competitive. The community offers a wide array of sport choices, music, theatre, dance and art classes, and the teachers are both knowledgeable and experienced. My daughter was well prepared for college, which she perceives as being easier than Trinity. The Latin program is simply outstanding. Overall, Trinity is a unique community of outstanding and caring individuals.

As a student of Trinity I can say that I do enjoy the place and all my friends and fellow students are great. Trinity is an excetptional school acedemically. However some teachers do not always provide the needed attention. This school pushes acedemic excellence, and will accept nothing below extrodinary. That being said the stress level is very high and students offen compete for good grades. If you and your child are willing to undertake this challenge, by all means apply.

A truly amazing place. What set Trinity apart are its incredibly strong central focus on academic excellence, as well as its extroardinary people - both faculty and students. Manages to strike the perfect balance between vigorous intellectual inquisitiveness and down-to-earth friendliness that is absent at any other New York private school. Simply the best school in the city.

Trinity is an amazing school both academically and socially! It is one of the most challenging schools academically, and one of the most accepting schools socially out of all the private schools in the city. I absolutely loved it!
