There is zero discipline at Trinity HS, and the current administration cares more about test scores than creating a good learning environment. Unfortunately, the focus on the STAAR/EOC tests is useless when there are no consequences for the students horrible behavior. Students are not held accountable for anything that they do, they are openly disrespectful to teachers and administration, and there are fights regularly.

When I was younger , I went to Trinity High School,.I thought this was the best school ever and I still do!

Trinity school system is about how many kids they can get to drop out the fastest!

Trinity is a good school with a bad rap...Our teachers have definitely not "given up". We as a community and school need to stop bad-mouthing ourselves and making apologetic excuses for where we live and go to school. Have some pride and stop the self-fulfilling prophecy of doom. I love Trinity Texas and I am proud to say that my children go to school in the Trinity ISD and excel academics and athletics...

Academicaly unacceptable according to state rating. The teachers have given up. The students, for the most part uncontrollable. The emphasis is on sports not academics.

Posted March 7, 2010

Most of the teachers are very disrespectful over the littlest things in the world. I would much rather be at any school in the state than here. I have been here for 10 years now and I am very disappointed in where my parents decided to live and the school that I must go to. I can guarantee that when I can I will switch school. We have a couple of fights every week. That is pretty bad when there is less than 350 students in the school. The only good thing about this school is that you know everyone and most of your teachers went to school with you parents.
