Our Philosophy of Education
Every school classroom has a philosophy. An educational philosophy answers the question, “Why do we do what we do?”
The philosophy you see playing out in a school classroom is based on one of these models:
- Whatever each individual teacher wants to do
- The vision of the head of school
- OR a cohesive philosophy consistently applied, like Montessori, Waldorf, or a deeply Christ-centered philosophy of education in a Charlotte Mason school.
Parents should understand the philosophy behind their children’s education, because it affects everything that happens in the classroom. And they should ask questions about how teachers are trained, because if they are not, then the philosophy will be ‘whatever each individual teacher wants to do’, and then the quality of education is fully dependent on which teacher you happen to get. We invite you to learn about the consistent philosophy of education at The Trinity School by reading these pages.
