Welcome from Trinity’s Head of School

Welcome to Trinity. Whether you’re actively looking for a new educational environment or just learning about what makes Trinity unique, we think you’ll find a community quite unlike any other in the San Francisco Peninsula.
Trinity School is a truly special place. From the moment you step onto our campus we believe you will feel it too. From the smiles and laughter on the playground to the high quality learning and teaching in the classrooms. Trinity School is a place where every child is known, valued, and celebrated.

Since 1961, Trinity has prided itself on being an institution of academic excellence with a commitment to social equity and service. Our school is in a unique position for an independent school. Situated on two campuses, one on Sand Hill Road and the other near the heart of downtown Menlo Park, we sit at the intersection of innovation and social consciousness. Our program aims to cultivate the next generation of compassionate and forward-thinking difference-makers. 

As an intentionally small school focused on learners in Preschool through Grade 5, we are able to be experts in the ‘wonder years’ of childhood. During these crucial years of development, we nurture students’ interest and natural curiosity by providing a broad range of both academic and co-curricular experiences. Trinity faculty and staff create the conditions for joyful and engaging learning to happen across disciplines. The result is confident and curious learners who are well-prepared for middle school and beyond.

Additionally, we value the idea that different perspectives are a source of wisdom and strongly believe in cultivating empathy and respect for others and other ways of being. Our strong commitment to social equity and being of service to others are hallmarks of an Episcopal education.

As you look through our website, please make sure to visit the admission section to schedule a tour. Being on our campuses will allow you to experience the warmth and magic that makes our community so special.

We look forward to welcoming you to Trinity!
