Excitable, inquisitive, creative, eager to explore, energetic, dramatic changes, and enthusiastic! These are a few of the characteristics of the typical junior high student. Sensitive to these characteristics the highly-qualified teaching staff of Trinity Oaks Junior High appropriately challenge and encourage each student to discover and develop his/her God-given gifts and abilities.
This is a time of transition from self-contained elementary classrooms to a more departmental approach. The program at Trinity Oaks strives to meet the unique opportunities of this special time in a student's life by providing a caring environment to nurture young adolescents through these formative years. Responsibilities and independent work increase as well as opportunities to socialize and bond as a junior high student body.
The curriculum reinforces the basics of the elementary program and prepares students for the rigors of high school academics. Math, science, English, social studies, physical education and Bible are taught at each grade level. Advanced courses in math are also offered. Along with the academic core listed above students also study music, art, and computers. Some of the highlights of our junior high academic program are:
- All students have Bible class each day.
- Math offerings range from 6th grade math through geometry.
- Each student takes both English and literature each year.
- The science program provides significant lab experiences over a wide variety of science disciplines.
- The eighth grade Bible curriculum, Lightbearers from Summit Ministries, is an in-depth biblical worldview curriculum.
In addition to academic preparation, students have ample opportunity to participate in co-curricular activities in a variety of sports, music programs, and leadership opportunities such as Huskies in Action and student government.
The academic excellence of our program can be seen in test scores as the average junior high student at Trinity Oaks scores at or above the 91st percentile at each grade level on nationally normed standardized tests. Also, surveys of past graduates indicate that over 90 percent of Trinity Oaks graduates qualify for honors classes as freshman in high school. Academically, the Trinity Oaks junior high provides an excellent, stimulating educational environment which prepares students for a highly successful high school experience.
