School isn’t just for the kids.

Trinity School is proud to partner with multiple organizations and individuals to provide well-rounded parent education events for our families.

 

A leading parent resource for the past 15 years, the Common Ground Speaker Series invites acclaimed speakers from around the country to present on a variety of issues affecting children and families today. Past speakers have included Michael Pollan, Jessica Lahey, Susan Cain, and John Hunter.

In addition, a few days after each presentation, Trinity parents convene on campus to further discuss each speaker series event at the Common Ground Roundtable. Often with special guests and our Head of School present to facilitate, the roundtable allows for in-depth conversation in a more casual atmosphere. Parents are not required to attend the speaker series being discussed; all that’s needed to come to the roundtable is an open mind and an interest in the topic!

“Ben and I are immensely thankful for Trinity School. The nurturing, caring community has given, and continues to give, our children a beautiful education, both academic AND social emotional.”

To address the ever-changing world of technology and digital citizenship, Trinity School is a proud collaborator with Common Sense Media. Common Sense Media is a San Francisco based non-profit organization that provides education and advocacy to families to promote safe technology and media for children. As members, Trinity teachers implement their EdTech teaching strategies and Trinity families can attend roundtables and presentations with a focus on navigating “best practices” when it comes to technology.

"I love the community at Trinity school. As an alum who has been involved with the school since 2001, I really appreciate the small and tight knit community that still holds and that I will always have people to say hi to and chat with when I return to campus."
