Trinity College School

"The size of the school is ideal in allowing the students to really get to know kids in their individual grades."

Leslie Gibson - Parent   (May 04, 2022)

Both of our sons' experiences at TCS have been undeniably incredible. Trinity has played such an important part in their lives and our family feels so fortunate that they have been able to attend such a special school for their formative high school years. What they have valued most is the sense of community that TCS provides. They have established wonderful friendships with students locally as well as from countries around the world. They have also developed meaningful relationships with t... View full review

"The teaching at TCS is second to none!"

Arundel Gibson - Parent   (Mar 30, 2022)

I'm writing this review as an alumnae of TCS and as a parent of three current students. As one of the first girls at TCS, I made lifelong friendships, succeeded academically, and benefitted from the sports, arts and community service programs offered by the school. Let's not forget I met my husband at TCS! Fast forward thirty years (!) and our three boys are in boarding (Bickle House, Brent House and Bethune House) and loving every minute! The pandemic has been challenging but TCS adapted right... View full review

"There is no question that the academic program is rigorous."

Jeanette M Lane - Parent   (Mar 10, 2022)

There are so many things to list but the sense of community, levels of support, service opportunities and extracurriculars would land at the top. I have had two children graduate and one who is about to graduate and the school met all their unique needs from the Jr. School all through the Sr. School. The academic demands are well balanced to sports, arts and service. The international community of the students has been a spotlight for our kids and our family because of friendships made that w...

"The school offers 22 AP courses and is one of the few AP Capstone schools."

Susan Zhang - Parent   (Mar 10, 2022)

Our daughter Lily and we all feel that school is her home. She loves school and has studied here for five years from Grade 9 to grade 12. TCS gives her a lot of care, she got the right values, understands the truth of life. In grade 8, we accompanied her for one year, and she knew the school very well and liked it very much. In that year, we participated in many school activities, such as Christmas Eve, the whole junior high school had a concert, and for example, the children participated in th... View full review

"The school provided me with a very high quality of life."

Charisse Lee - Alumnus   (Mar 10, 2022)

My experience at TCS was excellent! I loved the community especially the houses because it really felt like a family away from home. TCS definitely prepared me well for going into university because of the amount of independence we were given. Boarding made living in university residence a lot less intimidating, and the TCS schedules were somewhat similar to university ones as well. The overall transition was very smooth which is something I am grateful about. A new student enrolling into TCS sh... View full review

"The school leadership is everything you would want in a school."

Kim McConnell - Parent   (Mar 08, 2021)

Overall Trinity was a great experience for my daughter. The friendships that she has developed are amazing. Each and every one of her friends has taken different paths in their life since high school, but yet they still find the time to check-in and catch up with each other regularly. When I asked my daughter what were her favourite experiences at Trinity, she said in her final year doing the winter play, Arsenic and Old Lace and a service trip to Ghana, Africa with Mr. and Mrs. Hall. As a pa... View full review

"TCS has a team approach to ensuring academic understanding and success for students."

Erica Brown - Parent   (Mar 08, 2021)

Since walking on the campus at Trinity College School, our children have had outstanding student experiences... even during the COVID pandemic. Our son is in his second academic year at Trinity College School, and he really appreciates the variety of academic challenges, plus the variety of extracurricular activities. These include many clubs, sports teams, academic team challenges, international travel for academic classes, community service clubs, stewardship options and the list goes on. ... View full review

"The school has obviously taken great care in choosing/matching the right teachers for the right subjects."

Candace Pickering - Parent   (Mar 08, 2021)

I have twin boys in the Junior School at TCS. They started at TCS in Grade 7, coming from a wonderful public school. As a parent, I worried about the transition but from day one, my kids have loved TCS. What my sons appreciate the most about Trinity College School is how much they feel "seen" by the staff. This is accomplished by smaller class sizes, dedicated homeroom time, open discussions with all the children about their interests, pastimes, vacation plans, etc. My sons are very sporty and l...

"I felt like the luckiest person in the world"

Jocelyn Murphy - Alumnus   (Jan 26, 2018)

My time at Trinity was so special. I spent four years there in both day and boarding programs, and I am so grateful for that opportunity. Beyond academic rigour and stellar athletics and arts programs, I'll never forget my first day of grade 9, looking up in Osler Hall and seeing some forty flags hanging from the ceiling. Around me was this incredible mini United Nations of kids and I felt like the luckiest person in the world. My exposure at such a young age to a diverse, multi-cultural, multi-... View full review

"Beate Mundo Corde: Blessed are the pure in heart... truer words could not be said about the people of Trinity College School."

Benjamin Glassco - Alumnus   (Jan 25, 2018)

"Beate Mundo Corde": Blessed are the pure in heart. Adorned on the school's crest and displayed on the gates as you enter the grounds, truer words could not be said about the people of Trinity College School. Throughout my life as a young adult, I have consistently described my high school years as some of the best in my life. This was not because of my age, my friends, or my family, but from my school. What truly stands out at TCS, is the definition of "cool" seems to have been redefined at the... View full review

" ... everyone is truly welcoming"

Mariam Omilabu - Student   (Jan 23, 2018)

Being at Trinity College school is like moving away from home, feeling terrified and lost, then gradually finding your way to realize that you actually like this new found home. I can honestly say that I enjoy myself here, it's packed with challenges that are strengthening as you overcome them. One thing I wish I had known about the school before I arrived was the actual activities they had in store for the new students that were aimed at making them feel comfortable in the new school. In my opi... View full review
