The "proof is in the pudding" as the saying goes. I have four children who have either completed thier upper school education at TVS or are currently enrolled in the middle and upper school. The two graduates include a 26 year old daughter who is now practing law in Texas and a 22 year old son who attended

Each child is able to find thier own stride and pursue academic and athletic interests that helped to develop a well rounded individual. Peers are an important factor in character development and we have found that the parents at TVS are great at communicating with each other with concerns about group activities. We would rate this school in its totallity as "superior" in the DFW area. Read less

I have been going to TVS since 1st grade. I love my school and could not imagine going anywhere else. I am very close with my teachers and they want to help me be the best student I can be. They are very understanding and also seem happy with their job. They are excellent and I feel that they have prepared

Academics, Athletics, Arts, and Theater are all very strong. The School along with its classrooms are beautiful, and it is a comfortable environment where people are not afraid to be themselves. Due to the size of the school we know everyone in the grade which makes us like one big family :). Never in my TVS experience have I been bullied or putdown. TVS is a wonderful school and I would recommend it anyone Read less

We love Trinity Valley School's lower school. We've been here for 4 years with two kids with very different personalities and the teaching staff has been amazing at working with both of them. The teachers are constantly learning and working on being better. You can tell they are truly called to teach.
... Read more Same thing with the lower school principal who is AMAZING. She takes the time to say hello and give her full attention to every child who approaches her and makes them feel like they are her #1 student. It is an amazing ability. She runs the lower school like a well-oiled machine but in a way that makes it feel like a loving family. We are also big fans of the head of school----he has made some staffing changes in the middle and upper school which apparently have upset some parents, but it is clear that he has a vision for the school and is not afraid to shake things up to meet his goal. I personally like that----too many schools keep on people who need to go just because they don't want to rock the boat. The teachers who have been brought on are fabulous and dedicated to keeping the academic standards high. It is well worth the financial sacrifice for my children to attend. Read less

Many many people like the current Headmaster, as well as the Middle School Head. These current Heads of schools are always available whenever you need to talk.

The Upper school is a real nightmare: administration cares most about keeping parents happy, but at a real cost to the integrity of educational standards. Grades are inflated beyond belief. Teachers who are understandably frustrated are afraid to speak up. The leadership is awful: there are significant

I feel that Trinity Valley has really pushed me to do my best and study as hard as I can to get an A.

My daughter attended TVS from K thru 8. We moved to Houston and had her enrolled at the Awty International School. I can say that this was the best education she could have received. She had many academic scholarship offers in her senior year. So she was able to choose the college that she thought
