    I have always felt welcome at Holy Trinity. The principal teachers and staff are very friendly knowledgeable and helpful...they are the best! Holy Trinity offers an excellent environment for students to receive a higher level education that sets each student up to succeed and excel!

    If you want a faith based learning environment that is focused on developing your child in all ways then Holy Trinity is the school for you. The teachers provide a learning environment that truly focuses on developing the students not only as scholars but as members of the community as well. As the parent of a young daughter my hope is that she realizes her potential in the classroom and is encouraged dream big and realize how special she is. Holy Trinity provides this for her. I think that the true potential of this school though is just beginning to be realized. With a new principle as the leader of the school this past year changes have been made that I know are affecting my daughter for the better. And maybe even more importantly my daughter knows that her principle truly cares about her because she personally makes the effort to interact with her. She has complimented my daughter many times which makes her feel incredibly special. I love Holy Trinity and cannot think of a better place for my daughter to be!

    Holy trinity catholic school is amazing. The school has gone above and beyond for me and my sister. My parents and other family members have attended the school and loved the expierence. We may have a new principle but it is not our place to judge. Change is something no one likes and we all have to go through it. We may not like it but the change has done good for us. I know it's a good school because I am an actual student. I have received the best education ever. I am in the eighth grade. I have attended Holy Trinity since Kindergarten. There is nothing wrong with middle school there is only a problem if you refuse to put forth an effort. The teachers at Holy Trinity never give up on their students. their students are like their own children. At Holy Trinity I have received a quality education that I wouldn't be able to get anywhere else.My relationship with God and my faith has grown stronger. I have made friends that will stay with me forever. The changes we have recieved have given us a better lunch provider. Their is always going to be negative people who will oppose the school.This school has done everything for me. I love this school with all my heart.

    My school is wonderful and you know not every one is used to change but it happens. I am in 8th grade still attending Holy Trinity. I have gone to this school since Pre-k. There are so many changes yes I miss the old things we need to do but things change. I love this school to much to hate it. If you want your child to be amongst other smart and warm hearted kids this is the smartest school to go. I know it. I love Holy Trinity. The principal is wonderful. She has changed a lot of things. I may not like it all but that is not my decision. I mean hey now our food is really really good! Thats super duper important. My point is two reviews out of how many ever good ones there are. C'mon now... It is a wonderful school. Since the school being small everyone knows each other literally. I walk through a hallway and i am confronted by little kids saying hi to me it is like i do not even know you but they seem to know me! I hope that this has really changed your opinion of this school. I do not like all of this hate put on the school. Our new principal is just trying to improve our school. Thank You if you have read this.. (

    I used to absolutely love this school. Planned on my child being there through the 8th grade. They hired a new principal and it has all gone down hill from there. My child will not be returning next year.

    This was my daughters first year to attend school. She entered PreK with HTCS. I was nervous at first but as time went on she did great. I am thrilled with all her achievements this year and all is owed to the wonderful teachers she had. I am sad that her first year is over however I look forward to all the possibilities she will have with HTCS in the future. Faculty and staff... YOU ARE TRULY THE BEST!!!! See you next year. Take care and God Bless you all.

    This was our first year at the school so I was not sure what to expect. I and my children were welcomed and made to feel like part of a family. The teachers have been phenominal when it came to providing quality instruction and feedback to me about my children. I truly feel we are in the right school.

    I have children in both 2nd grade and preschool at HTCS and am glad that they can both continue at the same school until 8th grade. We're thrilled about the individual attention HTCS's small class sizes offer - my older child is already performing math exercises 1 year ahead of her grade and can continue to compete with her classmates in math over the summer thanks to multiple year-round online programs the school offers.

    My son is in the 6th grade at Holy Trinity. He has received nothing short of excellent instruction during his time there (since PK). Teachers are caring but hold each child accountable.

    Terrific learning environment and aftercare program. Small classes and super competent disciplined teachers. My child has blossomed since starting at HTCS in the 4th grade a year ago. Reasonable tuition rates to boot.

    HTCS is the best place for a child to be and grow to become a responsible loving intelligent and a smart individual. I would recommend this school to parents that really do want to invest into their children's future. More importantly my child looks forward to going to school and learning more. 5 stars.

    My son has attended PS and PK at Holy Trinity and it has been an amazing experience - for him and for us. The teachers and staff are top notch and above all create a loving nurturing environment for the students. We highly recommend it for anyone looking for a Catholic school for the children.

    I love this school the beautiful old building with its arched hallways high windows & old woodwork; the peaceful feel of the whole setting; the courtesy of the staff & the well mannered children. With quiet sureness Holy Trinity has its priorities straight on safety academics and ethics. The contrast between Holy Trinity where my child goes & the nearby public middle school where I teach says it all.

    My wife and I are very pleased with the excellent education both our daughters receive at Holy Trinity. The schools offers many extra-curricular activities; i.e. computer facilities athletic programs National Junior Honor Society. Tuition is less than most of the other area Catholic schools. Thumbs up for Holy Trinity.

    My child went to preschool 3 at this school and absolutely loved it. The teacher was fabulous!!Very nurturing environment for little ones....and great parental involvement.

    I am a parent of a child at HTS and have been associated with the school for 11 years. Preschool -5th grade education were excellent. I have serious concerns about middle school. What I see and hear from my child other children in those grade levels is that the teachers are always sarcastic ridicule the kids and generally make the whole school experience miserable. In favor of the school-there is a new pricipal this year and he seems to be gettin a 'handle' on the situattion. Hopefully he will be able to shake things up a bit.

    I recently graduated from Holy Trinity and it was the best experience I ever had. All the teachers cared about me. My class was only 17 students and we had been going there together since Kindergarten. Dr. Vanders is an Amazing principal you'll get a great education for your children.
