I am the Vice President of Trinity Tutoring.
The people are who make Trinity what it is; our teachers are the heart of our school, and it's also the connections and relationships I form with my peers that will be the most important take-away from this school for me.
Academics at Trinity are highly rigorous.
To graduate, we are required to complete 4 years of English, 3 years of History, 3 years of Math, and 2 years of Science.
For sophomores, we usually have 4-6 hours of homework.
Like what I had previously stated, the relationships between students at Trinity is one of my favorite aspects of this school. Our school fosters a healthy competitive atmosphere, while at the same time, Trinity students are very close and help each other succeed.
Our teachers can become very close to students, often becoming friends or mentors for life. We hold monthly advising meetings, so advisors are very attentive to our progress and adjustment to high school.
47% of our seniors go on to an Ivy League school, and 80% go to top schools in the nation.
The cafeteria at Trinity is very good, and there are many restaurants around school that students are allowed to eat at. Shopping is extremely convenient in Manhattan.
Parents and teachers communicate mainly through TigerWeb. I can't be sure about parents who may have difficulty communication in English, but I would assume there would be a translator.
Wifi is open all day.
New York can get very cold during the winter and very hot during the summer; our school usually blasts the air conditioning/heat though, so that should not be a concern!
I had an on-campus interview.

We have 48 clubs at our school, and 52 community service clubs. Some of the most prominent include; Model UN, various Affinity groups, Math Club, Academic Quiz Bowl, Sports Addicts society, Music Lovers, Unicef, and even some crazier ones like the Chocolate Lovers Club，the Sign Language club, and the French Glee Singing Club！And of course, our club:) (Trinity Tutoring)
If you participate in a sport at Trinity, you are allowed P.E. exemption. As for additional expenses, it depends on the sport. For example, track and field will be less expensive than golf.
