This school stays true to the Montessori principles and has an excellent learning environment with teachers who care about the individual child. My children have a love of learning that I don't see in their peers who attend other traditional schools. Trinity students are able to excel in academics without being held back by the "stay with the group" mentality. They are encouraged to explore their work and truly understand it rather than just rote memorize facts to get it right on a test. Worth every penny of the investment in my children's education. The downside is there is no middle school program there.

TMS is an example of what works when educating children. TMS provides children with opportunities to develop lifelong learning skills. The program does not throw a net to learn a lot and only skim the surface, TMS gives children opportunities to dive into topics and skills and become deep learners. Attending to task for long periods of time so FLOW can occur, a natural process observed when children get into project is developed and respected. In addition to the mass amount of brain based practices used in the traditional Montessori classroom is the community of learning. The acceptance of each child regardless of socio economic, race, gender or ability is very apparent and having expectations of cooperative behavior and responsibility for self is a lesson that is taught and enforced from toddler age. Seeing is believing.

A wonderful school with emphasis on developing the whole child, not just forcing memorization. They teach children how to think, not what to think. Our son has been there since he was 2 and shows exemplary behavior and advanced knowledge for his age. Only downside is the cost.
