I was once a student of TCS, but most of my education came from public school. When it came time to place my children in school there was absolutely no doubt in my mind where they would attend. The community and family like atmosphere Trinity creates is unlike anything I've ever experienced before! If you want teachers who love your children, administration that puts your children and family first, athletic opportunities for excellence and a superior well-rounded education then make Trinity your home! My children are so different from each other but the teachers at Trinity have been able to individualize their learning experience! Challenging my child who loves school and helping my other child learn to love school instead of letting his disinterest in education dictate his progress! Because of my personal experiences with public education, it is not even an option for my family. There is no sacrifice of money that would keep me from giving my children the community and education Trinity has to offer! It was the best years of school for me! And I only want to give my kids the best!
TCS is so proud of the students who have graduated the last few years. We have 7 or 8 at SMU on academic scholarship, one at Duke who is about to start medical school, one who is starting at A&M in the fall on a full academic scholarship, one at Virginia on academic scholarship, several at TCU, Baylor, UT, Tech, TWU, UNT, SAGU, etc. etc. Our students are thriving at the university level and we are so proud of them. We always welcome them back to TCS and consider them always Tigers!!!
I feel blessed that my kids were/are able to attend TCS. My son has excelled at the university level, making the deans list every semester. The spiritual atmosphere is second to none. I love TCS.
My three children have attended Trinity Christian beginning with K-3 through the 12th grade. My oldest son just graduated from college. My other son is a junior in college even though he has only been attending university for one year due to the AP and college classes he took while at Trinity. My daughter is a senior and is looking forward to attending college next fall with most of her college paid for due to the scholarships she received while at TCS. The decision to send our children to this school was a great one. In the last 20 years the education, spiritual atmosphere and extra curricular activities have exceeded our expectations in every way.
Trinity just might be the school for you- if you are paranoid that your blessed little angel who was meant to be set apart from the world will be corrupted by an evil and worldly generation. If this same little angel has low aspirations in life, then I recommend Trinity. However, if you want your child to grow into a healthy, well-rounded, critical thinking, academic achiever with many options and open doors in life, run- do not walk- away from this place of indoctrination. The curriculum is sub-standard and will never prepare your child for post-high school education. For that matter, you child will not be prepared to enter an academically rigorous public high school either. Tuition may be low, but your family's blindfolds and ear plugs will be free of charge.
This school will not prepare you for a University curriculum especially if the student is intending to pursue a science based major/career, if your ambition is for yourself or your child to graduate from a community college or technical school then Trinity is sufficient, though you would save a lot of money by just sending going to public school. All the public schools in the area have significantly more options when it comes to taking classes, especially advanced, honors, or AP courses. If you are wondering where your tuition money goes I believe it is to the Athletics program not to the academic programs. While there where a couple of good teachers when I attended this school, they were held back by mediocre curriculum and materials(all of the books are "subject" for Christian schools, why do you need a Spanish book specifically for Christian schools?) If you are not very ambitious or if you believe that a education that puts more emphasis on things like bible class than it does science classes then Trinity might just be the place for you, otherwise save your money. -Former Student
My daughter attended Trinity Christian School for 6 years. I have not been pleased with the school for some time. The school is short staffed. They have teachers teaching more than one subject and also different grade levels. The school is hardly private school material. The education that a child receives from TCS does not add up with the school's tuition. The school's staff portray a Christian atmosphere but they are far from Christian like people. The staff can be very disrespectful and they do not have the children there best interest at heart. When I read some of the reviews where the parents fill that their child is getting a good private school education, the only thing I can say to that is time will tell. The school held my daughter's transcript when we decided to leave. We had no balance with the school they are just very spiteful people. Please do not be fooled by the you be blessed because they will show you how they feel about you and your kid before it is over.
I feel so blessed to have my daughter in trinity she is getting a balanced education along with the word of God being instilled in her daily the teachers and staff care about the overall welfare of your child as a student and a person who will grow up and become a member of society they teach the students to give back to their community and to care about others less fortunate.Also the parent support is outstanding in my daughters class and her teacher and the superintendent send out communication letters and emails weekly to let you know what is going on with your child and the school.not only are my husband and I happy with the school my daughter loves going to school and she loves her teacher which says she feels safe and excited about school.The best thing about this year is she learned how to pray and goes to God for simple things in life.Can't wait till next year to see her grow to the next level in her education and with her classmates also my daughters class was small this year which I felt she got the attention she desires and deserves which is one of the pluses of a private school.
This school is not as great as I thought it was, I was VERY disappointed. My child went to TCS, I took her out because of BULLYING. The principle told me that she had to "deal with it". She also said it would get better but it did not. My child was left out, and the students didn't act according to their age. I don't recommend TCS... the teachers seem that they don't have a clue what they are doing. The lessons aren't explained how they should.
Trinity Christian is the best thing that has ever happened to my child. Before Trinity, our son attended a public school. He was doing poorly academically, and acting out a lot. When he began attending this school, his grades improved. He still struggled with some classes due to the high academic expectations and curriculum at Trinity. With tutoring offered at the school, lower teacher student ratio, and hard work, he has excelled above and beyond in both academics and athletics. I strongly feel this college preparatory school will greatly prepare him to go to any university he desires.
I attended trinity many years ago and now my son has been at trinity since k-4. We are very pleased with his progress - the teachers are very caring working with both parents and child. I have seen my son embrace the challenges given and excel. I highly recommend the school.
This school is a disappointment. They cram middle school and high school here together in one small, rundown building. The courses here are not challenging, and when they are, the teachers fail to properly assist students in understanding the subject. There is barely any homework in most classes. I've had more homework at my old middle school than my freshman year here! I hear my fellow classmates complain that they are given too much homework here when really they are being given very little at all. Like the previous review had mentioned, Trinity is for mediocre students. I am definately not being properly prepared for college, especially not for a prestigious college or anything of the sort. I would also like to comment on the building's awful condition. Yes, the tuition is very low compared to other private schools around the area, but you would think they would at least repair the leaky roof! It is full of holes, and it's blatant that they haven't made repairs in several years. When it rains outside, it rains inside. Horrible. If you were to put your child here, just don't make them attend middle and high school here.
I went to school here and graduated two years ago. Trinity is a place for mediocre students. However, if your son or daughter is an overachiever or wants an academic challenge, Trinity is the wrong school. There is a reason that this private school is cheaper than others in the Metroplex. Most of the teachers are not state certified, and the ones that are eventually leave because the pay is awful. There are only a couple of AP classes taught. Foreign language was taught via Rosetta Stone. There have even been reports of the old Academic Dean boosting a student's GPA since she was an athlete applying to college and wanted to be Valedictorian. I Trinity has a reputation of accepting the students that get kicked out of public school. I believe it. I attend a University now, and compared to other students, I believe Trinity did not prepare me for college. However, it can prepare you for community college, since that's where the majority of graduates go. In fact, when I took dual credit classes, I was told to "just pass" because those grades won't matter. Since I'm applying to graduate school next year, they do.Also, look at the poor SAT/ACT scores Trinity boasts about on its website.
My children have attended Trinity Christian School in Cedar Hill since 2005. I am pleased with the exceptional education my children have received. The staff is certified and each year they have improved the cirriculum. My children score very well on the nationally standardized tests and one of my children was identified as Duke Tip candidate in the 4th grade. Trinity is a great school that strives to educate children to handle and impact the world in their careers and professions.
I have 2 children attending TCS and have been very very happy with the Administration, especially the Jr. High Principal & the Superintendent. My children tested very well on SAT and I feel they are being well prepared for college. The teachers are great and have real compassion and love for the students.
My daughter has been attending TCS since the 5th grade. She is entering her Jr year and will graduate from TCS, We have had nothing but good experiences at this school and the close relationships students develop within the church and school is awesome. Our students always get compliments when out on school trips whether its sports or academics. If you are looking for faith based curriculum and christian values for your child, I would highly recommend Trinity.
TCS has a wonderful, caring and Christian environment. The Preschool program boosts great teachers and a challenging curriculum. I am a public school teacher so I am able to compare their curriculum with that of the public schools. TCS is above in every way. My son will be attending Kindergarten this upcoming year and we have decided that TCS is the right place for him. I just love the community feel, diverse student backgrounds, and high academic and behavior expectations.
I love tcs! my daughter is in kindergarten and she is reading on a third grade level. the teachers are very caring and concerned about the students academic and spiritual instruction. Trinity is a five star school in my book!
I am very, very, very disappointed in Trinity. I feel the school is all about money but you can't see were the money is going. The school needs alot of work done, everything is old in the school and the teachers act as if they don't care. They are just there for a pay check.
My kids have been students at TCS since 2004 and I have seen a steady decline in the academics. TCS primary focus is money. The student to teacher ratio in elementary is not acceptable for a private school. They advertise small classes, but cram as many kids as there are in public school. When asked about it; they respond what the state allow them to have. If we wanted state standards we would put them in public state school. I took my kids out for one year and attended a different private school and they were bored as they had to learn the things they learned in the previous grade. The one thing they are consistent on is asking for more and more money.
