Elementary School Programs
Trinity School gives each child a voice.
The legacy of a Trinity School education is a curious mind and a discerning heart.
These are the promises of our mission statement. Trinity School delivers on these promises through its teachers, who are people of extraordinary compassion, intelligence, and dedication to each child.
In intimate class settings on the Elementary School Campus, children experience a strong and balanced academic program. Strong academics depend on the child's engagement with his or her own learning process. Student engagement depends on the trust that is built between the teacher and the child as well as with peers. In robust learning environments, students engage with diverse learning tools - from paper and pencil to SMART Boards, laptops, learning manipulatives and amazing books - both actual and virtual.
A balanced Elementary School Program ensures that children learn both basic skills as well as the ability to think and ask relevant questions in the language arts, mathematics, social studies, and science. Art, music, Spanish, library, garden, religious studies, and physical education programs extend a well-rounded curriculum, allowing each student to enjoy broad opportunities for challenge and success. Diversity, service learning, sustainability, exploration of spirituality and faith are extended conversations and practices that inform the life and culture of Trinity School's elementary program.
Students matriculate from grade to grade as long as Trinity School is the appropriate placement for the child and family. California Association of Independent Schools (CAIS) and the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC) accredit Trinity School's elementary program.
