We had a great year in 2nd grade. After that it all went downhill. We found the older grade teachers to be quite antiquated in their learning (really, still using the same curriculum from 10 years ago....and proud of it!) The principal touted a huge school computer upgrade to us; but come to find out that fundraising/auction went just for new computers & monitors for the church staff; not school. That was disappointing, we felt misled by the principal having given substantially to this upgrade for the students. No librarian, art or gym teacher; so we had low expectations for these classes. As a volunteer in the school, I found that the teachers just 'skip through' these classes. Gym is play time in the gym, art is craft time, library is go check in/out a book. They do have chapel on Wednesday, but I'm always surprised how often my children say their own pastors (they have 3 at Trinity) are not at chapel. That seems odd, for many times the kids lead chapel & you'd think the spiritual leaders of these children would want to be there. We did have concerns with an a staff member speaking rudely/condescending & we voiced that concern to the principal, but it went nowhere.
