Hello Mr. Maestri,
I just wanted to take a moment to thank you for giving me the opportunity to attend such a positively impactful school. I never had the chance to understand what a blessing it was to attend Trinity while I was there. I was too focused on grades, graduation, and my future to truly understand how influential my surroundings were. Towards the beginning of the summer I went to Pennsylvania to see my previous classmates’ graduation. I had the opportunity to interact with some of my old teachers, headmaster and classmates. After talking to them and attending their graduation, I realized just how unique Trinity really is. My former school is wonderful don’t get me wrong. I am thankful I had the opportunity to attend that school for the years that I did, but going back made me so grateful that I get to call myself a Trinity alumni.
The thing that stands out to me the most about Trinity and its entire staff is the lengths they go to connect with students.
The thing that stands out to me the most about Trinity and its entire staff is the lengths they go to connect with students. Having the opportunity to talk one-on-one with teachers about things other than school, or surface level topics are unheard of. I am so grateful that I had the opportunity to form actual relationships with my teachers. Not every school has a Mr. Maestri or a Mrs. Orr with open offices for students. Words cannot express how thankful I am. Trinity not only influenced and taught me how to think and rationalize in a Christ-centered manner but it also taught me how valuable connections and relationships are.
Thank you for a wonderful high school experience.
