Trinity is challenging school atmosphere

Trinity is not just an ordinary school with average students and boring teachers; it’s the exact opposite.

My school is made up of spirited students and parents and devoted teachers and staff members.

The expectations are high at Trinity; my school makes us do more than we think we can. It’s because the teachers want us to enjoy that bright future that is ahead of us.

The teachers push us to do our very best, and that doesn’t stop with the lecture in the classroom. They support us after class with extra help and encouragement.

Many of us are taking challenging courses: honors chemistry and honors Algebra II. I see the determination on classmate’s faces.

Trinity’s curriculum is challenging, but the teachers have systems in place to catch us if we slide. Teachers monitor our grades and automatically require extra help if they notice a dip in our GPA.

The students in the National Honor Society and the Junior Honor Society provide tutoring services; these students give up their free time to help others succeed in challenging classes. This shows their passion and loyalty of the Trinity student.

Everyone here helps to form this diverse family; the love for this school is what unites us all together. As a Trinity student, I realize I truly am blessed with the fact that everyone knows one another.

When I see all the students that come to support Trinity activities like the basketball games or the Christmas pageant, it puts a smile on my face to see a school so close.

I love coming to the pep rallies and seeing the cheerleaders pump up the crowd with spirit and excitement. Most of my cherished childhood memories happened at Trinity.

I can remember my first time out on the football field; I was a Little Angel, and we were dancing at the home game that Friday night.

I can still picture that night. All the fans cheering our team on, every seat in the bleachers filled, and all the people standing on the side of the hill chatting, talking about the game.

Most of the younger children were too busy playing and running around to pay attention to the game going on. I can still see the bright lights on the football field as they shined down on anyone who stepped onto it. To this day, that rush of excitement and nervousness still comes to me every time I walk out on that field.

Everything about Trinity makes me want to stay here for as long as I can. Trinity will always be my home, and I know it’s a home for all its students.

My school is a part of me; it will always be; it will always have a special place in my heart.

Please join the Trinity Episcopal School family on Thursday to tour, talk and learn why Trinity is the right choice for your child’s future.

There are two opportunities to see Trinity. From 8:30 to 11 a.m. Thursday is a great way to see classes in session.

From 5:30 to 7 p.m. Thursday evening you can visit the halls and enjoy an alumni basketball game at 6 p.m. Come see why Trinity students are prepared to excel!
