    Trinity School at River Ridge Reviews

    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.

    Everyone at Trinity is very friendly, the classes are interesting, generally the teachers are interesting and friendly and engaged. They have some very fun traditions as well to spice up the school year. Food is rated average because there is no formal school lunch system, but every Thursday you can buy a Jimmy Johns 4 inch sub and snacks, and once a month on Thursday they serve pizza for those who ordered it at the beginning of the year.
    Trinity opened up my eyes in regards to how I view the world. It expanded my understanding in all realms of a liberal education, and is positively impacting the way in which I handle my college courses and continue to see things in another light. I am so grateful for this school and I would recommend it to everyone!!
