Middle School Academics
At Trinity Middle School, our goal is to strengthen, and nourish your child to grow with a Christ-Centered faith, but also prepare them for the transition from Middle School to High School, academically, emotionally, physically and spiritually. At Trinity we understand how this transition can potentially be a stressful experience both for students and their parents. To reduce the stress of transitioning, Trinity Middle School students attend tours of the Public and Parochial local High Schools, to familiarize themselves with the academic environment, enrichment opportunities and athletic programs.
Trinity Middle School promotes student independence through students making choices and accepting responsibility, collaborative work in small groups, and Project Based Learning (PBL).
Incorporating the 6 C’s: Critical Thinking, Collaboration, Communication, Creativity, Citizenship, and Christian Character. These are necessary skills for success and effectiveness for the future graduates and leaders.
Math Power Hour: Math Power Hour is a scheduled time in which all Trinity Middle School students, 6th – 8th grade, advance or maintain the appropriate grade level for instruction based on their abilities. The curriculum is Saxon Math. Math Power Hour challenges Trinity Middle School students and emphasizes their academic skills. Students can test up to Algebra/Geometry in preparation for High School.
Spanish: Spanish classes are available at Trinity Middle School. Past students have had the opportunity to test up to advanced levels of Spanish in High School.
Technology: Students are instructed how to utilize MicroSoft Office, interact on Google Classroom, attend Zoom meetings, design websites and coding for applications. Students also engage in research for product development and reports.
MAPP Testing is an Online evaluation tool for all students in K – 8 grade. Students are tested three times each year. The results provide teachers with helpful reports and specific data to better meet the needs of each leaner.
