I have three children in TBS in all grade levels--a 3rd grader, an 8th grader, and a senior in highschool. My 8th grader I had pulled out of public school when she was in 3rd grade due to bullying and non-responsiveness of the staff. I tried to homeschool her but was not organized enough to pull it off. Trinity was a God-send. I chose to place her a year behind what she would have been in public school and I am very glad I did. She is doing great now both academically and mentally. My senior I had kept in public school through freshman year because he was not experiencing bullying, however he was also not learning anything as the teachers seemed to be focused more on dealing with increasing behavioral issues among his peers, and in keeping up with social and cultural changes than actually teaching anything. I put him in TBS and he is developing into a wonderful young man. My youngest I have had in TBS since Kindergarten and she loves going to school. I am so thankful for this school and I hope one day I can send my grandkids there.

Trinity uses an excellent curriculum that gives our children the ability to consistently score high on academic testing. The students are challenged academically, are in God's word daily, and have great friends. We are thankful for amazing teachers that recognize the strengths of each child and help them with areas of struggle.

As a parent at Trinity, I am so grateful for the whole package. Teachers are knowledgeable, kind, helpful, encouraging, and engaging. The classrooms reflect their personality and teaching style. The curriculum is consistent from the first day of first grade all the way through high school and (from what I''ve seen so far) does not try to rewrite history. Within that curriculum, there are many opportunities to customize the educational tools for the specific needs of the student. Students are courteous, compassionate, respectful, motivated, and joyful. They are challenged academically, encouraged personally, and grown spiritually. The environment is relaxed and lends itself well to the education and nurturing of students. From the Dress Code to the Honor Code students are expected to present themselves in a God-honoring fashion in their actions, dress, and attitude. As a parent, I particularly appreciate that I am invited to be a part of the educational process; I am welcomed into the classroom anytime, teachers communicate with me when there is an issue, and I am encouraged to ask whatever questions, or raise whatever issues, come up. Without hesitation I would encourage every parent, who is looking for a solid education (with a Christian worldview) for their child, to consider Trinity. My only regret about bringing my children to Trinity is that I didn't do it sooner.

One of the things I enjoy most about our school is the close relationship of our students across the spectrum of ages. Students in 1-6th grade play together at recess. It is so wonderful to see the children play and not be consumed with who thinks what. The traditional classrooms with desks have prompted some parents to say to me , "it is like they are professional students." I reply, this is the "job" they need to do at this time in their lives to become successful adults.
