I would not recomend this school to my worst anyone. I am going to tell it straight this school sucks! I had to go and walk the halls every day for a year just counting down the days the hours, the minutes, the seconds until i could go home and never see that terrible place ever again. The amount of homework is insane! and all the teachers ever talk about is grades grades grades. Worst of all they do not care! You could get bullied! (like myself) and they wont do a thing because that could put there "perfect" reputation at stake. save yourself the heart ace and go running from this so called school.
We are overwhelmingly thrilled with TES. We moved our child here at the end of the academic school year so he could experience his last few months at this wonderful institution before summer. From the front office, janitorial staff, administration to the teachers we have been so blessed to be part of such a strong family environment. They care about our community and more importantly our child and want to see him succeed. We look forward to supporting TES and our children as they blossom through TES 'garden.'
My daughter is in first grade and is doing so well at Trinity. There are so many opportunities for her to be creative in her academic classes. When they learned about fairy tales, the class put on several plays complete with costumes. All the students memorized their lines and performed wonderfully. When they learned about different countries, they created floats to represent each country and had a parade. They are walking distance from Imaginon and see at least 6 plays during the school year. In math, they are taught a variety of method for reaching the answer and the teachers don't mind if they use fingers. My daughter biggest problem is showing her work in math. She calculates the answers in her head! This school is also very diverse and willing to try new approaches to keep the students motivated and challenged.
I love this school and the creative teachers that work with the children. The faculty are invested in this school and the children they serve. It is an expensive private school, but the kids are welcoming. The administration has done a good job maintaining diversity in the student body and providing access to the school for those with fewer resources for private schools. Nurturing, acceptance and taking responsibility for oneself and one's actions are highly valued. We moved from an overcrowded CMS school that was less than accepting of our rambunctious, bright young boy. He demonstrated great difficulty walking the line in the halls and was not appreciated for his unique, creative thoughts. He has blossomed at TES. And the Christian values are evident in his behaviors and thoughts.
