    "I am a parent of a current 4th Grader at Trinity. Most of the recent negative posts are from a handful of parents who did not get their way last year. These parents wanted a traditional approach to education, read the text book, and recite back the information on the test. Trinity doesn t believe in this type of education; rightfully so because it doesn't result in students who can think for themselves. When Trinity refused to change its educational philosophy to please a small group of parents, these parents became anger, and did not re-enroll their children in 2013-14. It's nice to hear their kids are doing well in public school; it is interesting these parents don't see a connection between their child's Trinity education and their child s current public school success. Trinity teachers do not teach "the test", Math is not taught in traditional fashion, homework reinforces classroom learning, it doesn't do the teaching. Trinity educates individuals, resulting in students able to think for themselves, find more than one way to solve problems, work collaboratively with others and confidently alone. Trinity isn't perfect but for us it s a close as you can get!"

    "Before you jump into this school, ask who writes the curriculum and don't fall for the fancy answer you will probably get. Ask why there are no text books. We were told our child may have a learning disability when really it was not our child at all, but the fact that there is no curriculum that has been tested and known to work so our children are the guinea pigs. It is truly sad how much our child's self esteem was shattered. Our child felt stupid and now in Eanes has a 100 in every class except one and has a 91 in that class. The social situation is also terrible at Trinity. This school was so disappointing I can't even explain. They can get you in there with all the bells and whistles but ask why so many families left last year and many more are leaving this year. And the families that left, no one bothered to even ask why."

    "Trinity is a special school! As a new family, we have felt so welcomed and supported in our transition. We chose Trinity for its outstanding reputation in delivering exemplary K-8 education. It is the right balance of academic rigor and nurturing communal supports where our children feel valued and encouraged. It has a well-integrated curriculum, with many opportunities for children to shine. The caring community of teachers and administrators genuinely care about each child and are accessible, professional and compassionate. Trinity is an authentic school community where every student can evolve in becoming their best selves. There is comfort in knowing each day is filled with inquiry, creative problem solving and varied opportunities. Every parent wants to give their children the best education possible Trinity fulfills this within a community of experienced and innovative faculty and staff. We look forward to many years of great possibilities on our Trinity journey."

    "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."
