Head of School Welcome

Welcome to Trinity.

Welcome from Trinity’s Head of School


Welcome to Trinity. Whether you’re actively looking for a new educational environment or just learning about what makes Trinity unique, we think you’ll find a community quite unlike any other in the San Francisco Peninsula.  


Our school is in a unique position for an independent school. Across the street from Stanford University on Sand Hill Road and adjacent to downtown Menlo Park and Silicon Valley, we occupy 5.5 acres on both campuses. We sit at the crossroads of innovation and social consciousness. The Trinity faculty educates the next generation of innovative, empathetic difference makers. 


As we emerge with confidence and resolve from the COVID-19 pandemic, we couldn’t be more optimistic about the 2022 – 2023 school year. This optimism is a result of unflinching and focused work from the past two years of the pandemic due to the dedication and creativity of the faculty.  Above all else, the faculty didn’t merely sustain learning, but they enhanced learning in our truly differentiated program, taking into account the social-emotional needs of all our students. In effect, Trinity students thrived daily across both of our beautiful campuses. The video on this welcome page speaks to the core of our work at Trinity every year.


Since 1961, Trinity has prided itself on academic excellence and a commitment to social equity and service to others, which are hallmarks of the Episcopal educational tradition. We believe in proactively and nimbly adapting to meet the needs of our entire community – from students, parents, faculty, and staff.  We know what we do best: create the most conducive environment possible for engaged, focused, and differentiated learning. A Trinity student has constant questions about the world around them, and we love nothing better than exploring those answers together – pandemic or not.


As we emerge confidently from these uncertain times, Trinity’s future is incredibly bright, both in the short term and in the years to come. I see this in our students’ sustainable hydroponic gardens, design thinking program, art studio, core academic subjects, service-learning program, nature path, playing fields, and the range of talent through our faculty staff.


Take some time to explore our site. See yourself at Trinity, now and in the years to come. Our whole community welcomes you precisely as you are.

Both teachers and faculty are always in my heart and thoughts and without them I wouldn’t know where I would be. They were the ones who helped me see the life I could have by working hard in school and following my dreams.
