    "Trinity administrators are unnecessarily arrogant - a complete turnoff. Teachers are generally good, though we haven't been around long enough to fully ascertain. We heard there is high turnover among teaching staff. Facilities feel cramped. We pulled our child out in a hurry. Interestingly, when later taking the entrance exam at a competitive school across town, our child saw a few Trinity classmates taking that exam too. We suppose those families are aiming to leave as well. Apparently, there are plenty of us willing to give up the one-time facility fee to get out! Be careful what you wish for."

    "Trinity is not at all what it looks like from the outside. There is very little substance behind the hype and promise of progressiveness. Homework is minimal and most kids need tutoring just to catch up with the basics. There is very little testing, (and the tests are not graded or returned for children to see) The report cards grade with only 1's, 2's or 3's through 4th grade and switch to letter grades in middle school. All subjects - except maybe art - emphasize a collaborative approach above independent work - kids are always in the halls - sitting around "talking". If you walk through the campus - 80% of the time you will see a chaotic mess of kids who are working (or not) on different tasks. The standardized test scores are substandard - which is not a surprise - seeing how many holes I have seen in my child's education. I would strongly encourage a close look at what this school really has to offer instead of what they say they offer. And also note the string of positive reviews that will undoubtedly follow this one - most likely from staff or parents who were asked to write by the staff - who are in a panic from the mass exit that just left the school last year."

    "I am extremely grateful to work as a teacher in a school where learning is the priority. Even though Trinity students take standardized tests and generally perform very well in all subjects, the school's program is not based on test objectives. Teachers teach so that students form a complete picture of the ideas. Teachers are respected for their teaching and encouraged to continue their growth. The administration of the school invests heavily in professional development for its faculty. I have been able to learn from some of the most respected professionals in the field while teaching at Trinity. The vast majority of parents are also very supportive. They understand that Trinity is preparing its students for a competitive, global world. They also know this preparation means school has to be different than it was for them. Best of all, my students are always excited about learning and are never afraid of challenges."

    "Now that my son has completed his first year of college, I am able to clearly see the importance of Trinity's emphasis on the development of many different skills. My son entered Trinity as a middle schooler. He came from a public school that had a good reputation, and more important, he fared well at the school. Arriving at Trinity, I immediately recognized the difference in what Trinity expected of my son compared to the school he left. Trinity required significantly more of its students. At Trinity, students are expected to take greater ownership of their learning and encouraged to stretch themselves to be organized, manage their time, advocate for themselves, learn how to learn, effectively address conflict with peers, and think about life and events beyond the realm of Trinity. My son learned to navigate his way through Trinity and an equally as rigorous high school program. He began his freshman year of high school one year ahead in math. He is now studying in a competitive liberal arts college and is doing well. It was sometimes uncomfortable for me to allow my son to struggle with developing the important skills. I had to believe in his capabilities and trust his teachers."

    "From my work with students and faculty at Trinity, I have no doubt that Trinity has a very strong academic program. There are many reasons for this, but one very important reason that I have observed is Trinity's willingness to break from tradition and more narrow perspectives of teaching and learning in order to find more effective and meaningful approaches to educating children. It is apparent to me that teachers at Trinity take the time to evaluate what is taught, the purpose it is being taught, and how best to teach it. They study well-researched, innovative methods, and they appropriately and nearly seamlessly blend them into their practice. As a result, the academic program continually improves. Students are really expected to deeply internalize and apply whatever knowledge or ideas that they are taught. Trinity offers a kind of schooling that promotes a much higher level of learning than I have seen in other academic programs. Because of its innovative nature, families considering Trinity must be willing to embrace new ways of teaching and learning in order to help their children make the most of their Trinity experience."
