Trinity’s Mission, Goals and Practices

Trinity provides a safe and nurturing educational
experience for children with learning differences
through programs designed to meet
each student’s specific needs.

Fundamental Goals and Purposes

A foundational belief of Trinity School is that active learning is fundamental to the full development of a child’s potential.  Active learning occurs most effectively in settings that provide developmentally appropriate learning opportunities designed to strengthen and extend the cognitive, physical, and emotional development of all students.

Trinity School Oklahoma CityClassrooms are environments where students engage in educationally important learning tasks by participating in developmentally appropriate key experiences; where students and teachers form active learning partnerships to support the students’ development; and where students are supported as they engage in important social relations with other students and adults.  Our school promotes independent thinking, active learning, a “can-do” attitude, and active, inquisitive imaginations in students. While students develop these attributes at different rates and in varying degrees, Trinity’s instructional approaches are designed to foster self-confidence and social competence in all students—skills that are necessary to function in today’s society, where lifelong education, on-the-job training, teamwork, and problem solving are increasingly important.

Daily Prayer/Daily Devotion

Trinity observes a non-denominational Christian philosophy, encouraging tolerance and appreciation of all faith traditions.

The School begins each day with a time of prayer, devotion, and meditation.  Giving thanks before lunch is a daily routine.  Being grateful is an important life value.

Chapel

Chapel is held each week.  Students are encouraged to participate to the degree in which they are comfortable.  This is a time in which stories from the Hebrew and/or Christian scriptures will be told/heard, songs sung, and worship given.  All teachers participate in chapel with their students.

Ethical/Moral/Character Development

Trinity School desires students to be people with good character and strong ethical values.

Statement of Faith

We believe the Bible to be the Word of God. We believe in the Holy Trinity: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. We believe in the deity of Christ, His virgin birth, His sinless life, His miracles, His vicarious and atoning death, His resurrection, His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and His personal return in power and glory. We believe that for the salvation of lost and sinful man, regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential. We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost-they that are saved unto the resurrection of life and they that are lost unto the resurrection of damnation.

OUR HISTORY

Trinity School was founded by Kitty Warren when she purchased a small preschool in 1961 from Georgianna Hammett which was housed in St. George’s Episcopal Church in the Village. After the school grew to the building’s capacity of 75 students, Mrs. Warren eventually found a home for it at All Souls Episcopal Church where it began to add elementary grades to its preschool and kindergarten.

In 1983, Bill Haddock joined the school as its new headmaster, and in 1984, the school added eighth grade.

In 1985, construction was begun on a new facility. In November 1986, construction was completed and Trinity moved to 1120 E Hefner Road. In 1991, a second building was completed to house the gymnasium, kitchen, stage, and early learning center.

In November 2001, Mr. Haddock passed away and Sherry Rowan took over as the interim head of school. The Board of Trustees appointed her as the permanent head of school in March 2002. Upon Ms. Rowan’s resignation, Paul Böer was appointed Head of School in 2004.

Pat Furmanski became interim head until Darlene Troxel was appointed Head of School in July 2007.Before moving to the school’s new central location at 321 NW 36th Street in July of 2009, Jennifer Vaught, M.Ed.,CALT was named the Head of School in April of that same year.
Although originally named Trinity Episcopal School, the school has ended its Episcopal affiliation and observes a non-denominational Christian philosophy, encouraging tolerance and appreciation of all faith traditions.
