Our child struggled at his last school before we moved, and when we spoke to his teacher we were able to request new testing here. They worked quickly with the testing specialist and attended all of the meetings to discuss the outcomes and classroom expectations.
We are new parents to Holy Trinity Catholic School. Before we moved to Dallas we wanted to find the right school first, then find a home. We toured the school and then let our child spend a day as a student. He loved it! The children in his class welcomed him and it made the transition to a new city and school very easy. We live in Uptown and sometimes walk to school, just like a neighborhood school.
The parents are very involved and we love the community. The teachers are great and the average class size is 15-20 kids. WOW! There are plenty of extra curricular activities and everyone (regardless of experience) is highly encouraged to participate.
This is my daughters first year attending and not only does she love going to school every morning but she is very happy every day she comes home. She is learning so much so fast I am very thankful for the teachers at the school. She is getting a great education I couldn't ask for a better environment. She is also gaining so much insight in religion, I couldn't be happier!
The teachers are wonderful. Leadership not so much. The leadership and communication have caused us to leave. School enrollment has dropped from 160 students to just a little less then 90 in 2 years. Very sad to see this downfall happen to what was once a great school. Looking around there is a serious problem. Many people will tell you its tuition but some know that is not the truth. Its about feeling welcome in a catholic school and open to new ideas. Many have felt pushed out from the "changes" made 2 years ago. If you don't dedicate 100% of your time and money you will feel the cold shoulder.
I think this school is a great option for catholic education in Dallas, I defiantly don't regret sending my child here. The class room sizes are small, about 10-12 students at max I would say. The school has had an abundance of changes over the past years. Sometimes change is good. However, I think that the Principal should evaluate the changes that she has made and get input from the parents. After all, we are paying tuition to send our children here. Like all schools, there is definitely politics involved, but don't let this stop you from sending you children here. HTCS has some magnificent teachers that have survived the changes and also new teachers that have come with the changes. Surveys would defiantly help guide the leadership at holy trinity to help improve the structure and deal with all the changes. What changes do parents like or dislike?? What changes do teachers like or dislike?? I understand that everyone can not be happy but if some of the issues are of concern maybe they need to be addressed. Again don't let this stop you from sending your children here. It is a great school with a small community that. At Holy Trinity your child receives individualized attention. Its is a community where everyone knows each other.
Principal Jill Fallon and the amazing staff are the reason we are returning to Holy Trinity Catholic School. If you are looking for a great education, specialized attention, and a Catholic experience this is the best school in Dallas, TX. The school has seen a lot of growth over the past two years, and I am proud to support the HTCS Tigers! Another big benefit is the vision 360 green kitchen, and the school chef who prepares healthy fresh menu selections everyday.
