I agree that this school is pretty good until you get to middle school. My daughter says the classrooms are out of control with the bad kids - just like every other middle school in Oak Cliff. I tried to talk to the principal but she doesn't care. We are pulling her out at the end of the school year and going to move to the suburbs.
I thought this school was pretty good for my kids until they came to middle school. The teachers are a revolving door - always quitting, you never know who your kids teacher is going to be. I asked what was going on and just got the run around from the rude staff.
this is a great school, the teachers are great with students this is the second year of my son and he loves it!!!
This is a very good school, the teachers are great with the children. Staff will give you a hard time about picking your child, even in emergency situations! I have experienced rudeness from some of the assistant teacher helpers to the 10th degree! Some of the staff there walk around mad at the world and WILL take it out on you. There is no window for tardiness, your children have to be there by 8:00 in the classroom sitting down, no exceptions. Make sure you are CLEAR about how many days your child can miss before they send you out a truancy slip. If you have a change of clothes for your small children make sure they are accounted for immediately because they will come up missing. Yes it is an EXCELLENT school, but the staff takes up for each other...parent's views don't matter.
I was very impressed with this school. My children transferred here upon moving from Denton County this past year. I was apprehensive about enrolling them in an Oak Cliff school due to the reputation of the area & I feared they would fall behind due to the stress of the transition. However, in the first few weeks I noticed their grades shoot up above average & they ended the year with honors. I was very pleased with the focused attention they received from the faculty. Starting from the one on one conversation with the principle discussing both the school s & my expectations; to the teachers giving personalized attention to each child, bringing out their best; to the extra curricular activities coach cheering on our first year players with encouragement and pride. I would definitely recommend this school to all.
This was my daughter's first year in Trinity Basin Preparatory in 1st grade and she LOVES it. I also was really impressed with it, she had previously attended a catholic school and was very expensive to keep her there but now I see that this school is alot better academically and it also provides a very safe enviroment for the children. Their policies are strict but that keeps the kids on the right path, my daughter will definetly continue to go there. Thanks to all the staff at Trinity Basin, especially the first grade teachers for teaching and keeping my daughter safe.
this school is awesome and i love the way they care about our children and their safey. I have never had a problem with the staff and it's my son's second year there and will continue there....
My child has only been attending for a month now but i have seen a grade improvement in his conduct and he likes the teachers.
