Middle School offers a broad, interesting, challenging, and developmentally appropriate educational experience for our students as we strive to achieve a balance between the rigorous demands of a college preparatory institution and the needs of a growing adolescent. Trinity is deeply committed to supporting the development of our students as caring, respectful human beings as well as scholars.
Developing Middle School Minds
We believe that students work harder, achieve more, and treat each other with a higher level of dignity when they and their efforts are visibly and consistently encouraged and valued. To foster this we provide meaningful lessons, challenging standards, and a nurturing community to promote the best in our students.
Our teachers combine expert knowledge of their content areas with a distinct passion for educating middle school aged students. They thoughtfully invest in the intellectual, social/emotional, aesthetic/creative, physical, and ethical development of each student as they guide, mentor, and coach. They work together closely on grade level teams and in departments to bring their collective knowledge, experiences, and expertise to benefit all of our students.
We seek to inspire active learners who think critically and take intellectual risks as they learn to transfer their knowledge to novel, varied situations across all disciplines.
The program emphasizes the acquisition of skills and attitudes that allow our students to express ideas effectively and to solve problems both independently and collaboratively. Additionally, we endeavor to create an environment in which learning is both serious and fun and where students see learning as an inherently rewarding lifelong process.
