Middle school is a time of transition. The student is progressing from childhood to adolescence with physical, mental, and social changes. Trinity Middle School embraces the pivotal role it plays by providing students with a full range of experiences needed in order to grow as self-aware, confident learners ready for high school. The faculty provides a framework which supports the quest for increased independence by setting high expectations within a supportive environment.
Middle School lays a strong foundation for our students' high school careers, both as learners and as citizens of a broader community. Students in grades 6-8 complete a sequence of rigorous core courses and are encouraged to take part in leadership training through organizations like Student Council, Honor Council, and National Junior Honor Society. They may also participate in a range of seasonal sports and extra-curricular activities: Co-ed Soccer, Girls Basketball, Softball, Volleyball, Boys Basketball, Student Choir, Yearbook, Cheerleading, Private Piano & Guitar Lessons, and more!
Grade 8 students discuss and navigate through the choices that will be in front of them in High School and beyond. Students will hear from law enforcement, drug and alcohol experts and leaders in our community about the choices that they will need to make to become the best of who they are Dr. Larry Micheletti leads this class.

There are no packets or projects to complete, but these titles will be discussed upon the students’ return to school and students will be expected to respond in writing to questions about the books. Tests will be administered after we have returned to school (NOT the first day back).
