Trinity School at River Ridge
- Private School
- Eagan, MN
Senior: At Trinity we take a very different approach to learning than any school I have ever seen before. The biggest difference is a class we have called Humane Letters in which we sit in around a table shaped like a circle and discuss literature. The literature varies from the Constitution, to ancient stories such as The Odyssey, to philosophy such as Plato's Republic, and to other great works of art such as A Tale of Two Cities. In this class we not only learn how to read difficult works but also how to discuss well together while respecting each other's view point.
The teachers are inspiring. They love what they are teaching and that has made my learning experience all the more delightful as they will stop to make sure that we all see the beauty in the subject at hand.
Overall, my school has helped me to become confident in myself, to see the beauty around me, and to better understand this world we live in through the lens of mathematics, literature, art, music, and the sciences.
