I have 2 girls aged 8 and 14. My 8-year-old started at Holy Trinity since TK. It was imperative for me to find a new school for her as at that time, my 14-year-old (then 11-year-old) attended a different Catholic school in the area where I felt the educational quality went from great to poor plus the latest administration and teachers are not those to be desired (unless you want to learn Math from watching YouTube videos). We found HTS in our search and have been here since and absolutely love it. The primary teachers are amazing and provide a strong foundation for the children to build on. My little one is thriving and is learning advanced materials for her age. The school caters to each child's learning ability and speed to help them grow, thrive and be successful overall. I have not had to supplement teaching as I did with my older child other than the normal run-of-the-mill homework. It has a growing sports program. Volleyball is excellent and has placed many times in CYO competitions. Swim is new but HTS placed in overall for the younger division (8 and under). Acadec also on a positive trajectory and will be an asset for the students and the school. Overall, an amazing school and will definitely stay until 8th grade!

I knew it was a great move that I transferred my eldest daughter here. She has improved a lot in terms of reading and spelling. My 2nd daughter has started her TK here and she very much likes it and also has learned a lot. All the staff are nice and very helpful. Will surely finish both of their studies here until the 8th grade. Any parent will surely be happy that their kids are enrolled here.

My wife and I love this school. Academically, we've seen our TK aged children grow. Our children also have improved behavior at home. We also like how the older kids are nice to the younger kids.

If you have a little one (3-4 year old) definitely think about considering enrolling him/her beginning in their TK program. It is a great starting foundation for what they will be learning in Kindergarten and beyond. We had many choices in selecting a preschool...even an elementary school, but when we decided to send our daughter here in TK, it was one of the best decisions we ever made. She is going into 3rd grade now and continues to love it! Teachers (and all faculty) are great. Ms. Lloyd, our principal, is AWESOME and so dedicated. Fr. Ricky, our pastor, is amazing. You should check out one of his masses/homilies. A catholic education is priceless - they are truly "Forming saints and scholars." But even if you are not catholic - all denominations are welcome. My daughter has several classmates who are not catholic and their families love the school. It is hard to put into words what type of community Holy Trinity School is. We are unique. We are not a huge school...but we are a great school. We truly are a family and I hope my daughter has the same experience I had when I was in school. I am still in touch regularly with my elementary school friends that I met at St. Casimir (almost 39 years of friendship!) My younger brother is an alum of HTS and several family members previously worked here as well. If you are looking for a school that is unpretentious, welcoming, supportive, family-oriented and a place where your child will excel - please consider Holy Trinity. You will not regret it.

I am very pleased and happy with the way Ms. Lloyd manage the school since the two-years of transition and I can really say that she absolutely did a tremendous job together with the assistance of Father Ricardo in improving a lot of great things for the school. We are truly pleased and blessed to have them in the school community because we know and admire their hard work and loyalty to the school and are truly devoted in giving the best education that the students need and require to be able to fulfill their goals during and after they finish school. I just hope and pray that everything will always be as positive like this and to continue their excellent service to each family and parish people who have dedicated their time as much as they can to serve. Thank you and keep up the excellent work as always!

Holy Trinity is a great school that feels like a small family. Teachers are very qualified and my grandsons are excelling in all their classes. Class sizes are small giving students a better chance to learn. My boys have enjoyed playing sports and they also enjoy their music classes. I highly recommend Holly Trinity; a great choice for children to grow academicly and in a safe environment. There is also assistance available to pay for tuition which is also a great help.

I am a parent of two boys. I am also a firm believer of investing in your child future thru a good Catholic Education. You don`t have to participate in the religion but you do have to want your child to have morals and standards, this is the best way to help them. We have being very blessed in obtaining an exceptional education for both of our boys. My eldest tested college level to his high school entry exam. My youngest growth has being amazing junior high ca sometime be challenging for kids (puberty, teenager challenges comes in the pictures) But thanks to Holy Trinity staff and support he is doing amazingly. I am sure he too will test exceptional. I do recall a situation that always enforces my believed in a catholic education and would like to share one with you. While in Kindergarten a classmate had an accident and the rest of the class laughed at this child. Later the teacher had a serious talk with the rest of the class regarding their behavior. But not only was a scolding given, this came with an explanation as to why their behavior was erroneous and with examples that to this day they remember. My kids were not only being educated in grammar and math but they were also being taught to be people with generosity and consideration towards others. Something our youth lacs and desperately needs especially in the public school systems.I can never thank enough the encouragement of the teachers; I can never say enough of how wonderful humans they are. But I will add we do find a bump in the road at times. But sadly this is happening in all areas kids are involved in. We as parents have to be involved in our kid`s activities, lives, get to know their friends and their parents. A Catholic atmosphere makes all this possible because we become a family, we care for each other and we get to know each other. My kids see their schools as families` members, along with their teachers and school mates.
