Elementary Education at Trinity
For the Whole Child: Social, Emotional, and Academic
Trinity’s Lower School encompasses Grades One through Four, and is filled with children who are highly motivated and excited to become lifelong learners.
Our community provides an ideal setting for each of our young students to build a solid foundation by placing a strong emphasis on the development of the whole child socially, emotionally, and academically. Our faculty ensures that each child is known and valued, and that each student is able to learn and grow in an environment where risk taking is encouraged and mistakes are viewed as opportunities for growth.
In the Lower School, we create an environment where each child is excited to come to school each day, and that they are eager to see the new learning adventures that await them.
Trinity students are taught to value the learning process and are provided with academic choice in their learning throughout each day.
Our Lower School children are happily engaged as they are busy selecting writing topics based on individual interests, discovering new ways to tackle math concepts, or creating a plan for how they will present their knowledge on a favorite science or social studies theme.
Student choice in learning provides our students with the opportunity to think deeply, articulate their thinking, and become expert problem solvers. Our dedicated faculty provides children with a warm, nurturing environment. The Lower School classroom focuses on building skills in cooperation, assertiveness, responsibility, empathy, and self control, and we support our children daily as they become confident, resilient, and increasingly independent throughout their Lower School years.
We are committed to educating the whole child while also celebrating individual differences. Throughout the Lower School years, children gain personal responsibility, empathy, and learn to respect multiple viewpoints. We pride ourselves on stimulating both minds and hearts.
