We Believe:

Every student can learn.

Every student is entitled to a safe and nurturing learning environment.

Every student has value and is treated with dignity and respect.

Every student's independence, creativity, and leadership are promoted.

Every student is equipped to be technologically literate, responsible and productive.

We have a highly qualified teaching staff as well as a highly qualified support staff to provide opportunities for students to achieve our mission.

The curricula is designed in accordance with the State Standards, the Understanding by Design Framework, research-based best practices in education, and the specific learning needs of Trinity Area’s students to ensure that all students meet the established learning goals.

Principal, Trinity West Elementary School



Mrs. Connie Schreibeis has been nominated for the Presidential Award for Excellence in Mathematics and Science Teaching (PAEMST). The PAEMST is the highest recognition that a kindergarten through 12th grade mathematics or science teacher may receive for outstanding teaching in the United States. Up to 108 teachers are recognized each year. Awards alternate each year between elementary and secondary teachers. Presidential Awardees receive a certificate signed by the President of the United States, a trip to Washington D.C. to attend a series of recognition events, and a $10,000 award from the National Science Foundation. Awardees also join an active network of outstanding educators from throughout the nation. Since 1983, more than 4,700 teachers have been recognized for their contributions in the classroom and to their profession. Awardees serve as models for their colleagues, inspiration to their communities, and leaders in the improvement of mathematics and science education. Good Luck to Mrs. Schreibeis!
