The bottom line was always paying off the new building not the children. This was demonstrated time and time again throughout my year employed as a daycare staff member. Lackluster class room budgets and minimal pay to uneducated support staff not to mention various fundraisers and attempts to raise money for the classrooms, that the teachers never saw. During my employment liscening was called multiple time because children were left unattended. Favoritism was played with the children and the families that were recieving tuition assistance were made known and often talked down upon.
I have two children at Trinity, and we could not be happier. The early childhood teachers are attentive, loving and go out of their way to accomodate my baby's schedule. When my son was a baby, the school he attended had a rigid schedule that they expected all babies to confirm to. Here, the focus is on the child's well-being, not the teacher's convenience. We have been very pleased with the elementary school as well. The teachers are well-qualified and genuinely care about their students, their education, and their personal developmnent. The administration and supplemental instructors (Spanish, Art, etc) are easy to communicate with and eager to foster my child's development. It is true that there are instructors who are related to each other, and many staff and students are members of the church. I have not found this to be a negative. On the contrary, the teachers, staff, and administration are more caring and more invested in the students than what I have experienced at other "highly regarded" schools in Houston. We are not members of the church, but my children have been treated just like anyone else's. We have never felt left out or disadvantaged.
I am currently in 8th grade and have been attending Trinity since since 3rd grade and I must say, Trinity is awesome. Everybody there is so kind, they have a great music program, and the academics are exceptional.
My two children attended this horrible school for 6 long years, they were both bullied by the girls and boys while the administration and teachers watched and did nothing. Field trips were a total nightmare with the kids out of control doing what ever they wanted especially the kids in sports who were give a free pass on their horrible behavior. For kids with math skills they are referred to a tutor for 40.00 bucks an hour and in my case was a former student/friend of the principle and my child did not learn anything,. She was also incredibly rude to my 10 year old daughter. These teachers, coaches, principle and administrative staff are all joined at the hip. The extent of bullying and favoritism is of nuclear proportions, my mistake was leaving my children in a place like that way too long. Do not send your child to a place where they may be scared the rest of their lives in their most formative years.
I am so happy to have gotten my children out of this deceptive place called a school. Most of the teachers are ill prepared and lacking proper credentials. They are not certified. Every teacher is somebody's cousin or married to each other. It is like a hillbilly haven. If your child is not a member of someone's family, then unfortunately your child is left out. We have wasted all of our money and my children have suffered. I would not recommend this place to anyone. Yes they love and nutrure their own. The tutor there is charging parents $40 an hour, and as we discovered the help he provides with math is homework and the problems are still wrong. Don't risk your child's education at a place where your child is subjected to favoritism geared toward the employees children.
This school is very deceptive. It rants about the loving nature of the school community but there is rampant bullying that the teachers ignore and is not successfully addressed at the administrative level. Academics are lacking as most of the focus seems to be on "love" and "understanding" and not on discipline and regulated education. Many of the teachers are inexperienced and unable to provide an academically focused environment. I am a very disappointed parent that wasted time and money at this school - to my child's detriment.
A loving, caring, Christian environment that not only excels academically, but also teaches children to respect and love Jesus, their families, friends, and community.
Trinity Lutheran is an excellent school, very loving and nurturing environment for all kids in the school. The kids all know each other by first name and the older kids make the younger kids feel very special, when the call them by name. My three kids attend Trinity, the youngest is at the children's center which makes the drop off extremely easy for us in the morning. The teachers are very loving to all kids and have been there for several years, so all kids will have been taught by the same teachers, very stable environment.
We are very thankful to have chosen this school for our two sons. It has been a blessing to them as well as our family. Examples: 1) We have joined the Church, and now have a church home. 2) The kid's grandmother participates in the Math enrichment program (Mathcart) which has allowed her to have a closer relationship with our kids. 3) Some of the School activities take place as part of the Church's program: Youth Choir, Wednesday Night Youth Program, etc. Academically, it made a tangible difference in our son's enjoyment of reading through its Accelerated Reading Program. Musically, our boys can play instruments, due to it's strong band program. Athletically, it has encouraged my boys to compete in a positive manner. In summary, I am very happy that my boys have been at this school for the past 5 years, and look forward to the next 3.
One of Houston's best kept secrets. Small numbers, safe environment. Small size does keep it from having extra help or advanced classes, but we've been happy with it and am glad we stayed.
Trinity is a wonderful school. My daughter has been attending for 4 years, and it's like a small family - all the kids know one another, and play and learn together. The teachers are excellent, and truly enjoy teaching.
This school was radical. Great friendships were built, and the fact that most of us went to the same church was an added bonus. Overall Good place,great lunch program.
So much has been added to this school since my child graduated 3 years ago, that I almost feel she needs to return and get the benefits that are offered now in a private school. I liked the small class setting.
Trinity Lutheran School provided an excellent education for my first child and is doing the same for my second. After completing 1st through 8th grade, my oldest applied and was accepted to an honors and advanced high school program. Trinity provided her with excellent English skills and a good math foundation. My youngest is now reaping the benefits of an added Music Conservatory and Accelerated Reading program that has spurred him onto becoming an avid reader. Combined with a qualified and caring staff, I appreciate the teachers and this school and their committment to my children.
