Greetings Trent InternationalE School staff, parents and students!
As the president of Trent InternationalE School, I am excited about the new direction that Trent InternationalE will be undertaking starting this coming school year. In addition to what Trent has worked to achieve over the last several years, we will be undertaking the challenge of becoming an International Baccalaureate (IB) school. Beginning in the Fall of 2017, Trent will be implementing the Primary Years Program (PYP) for Pre-K through 5th grade, and will be implementing the Middle Years Program (MYP) and the Diploma Program in the years to come.
These three programs are:
Primary Years Program for Pre-K to 5th grade
Middle Years Program for grades 6th to 10th
Diploma Program for grades 11 and 12
If you would like to know more about the IB program, you can go to their website at http://www.ibo.org/. I think you will see how IB will complement the strong program that Trent has worked so hard to establish.
I have been working on a new vision for Trent. I have updated the school’s current philosophy to define the direction that I see for the school in the future.
In a true international school, we must have real world international experiences for our students. To that end, we will be doing field experiences in our community and abroad.
We will be recruiting students from the Houston area as well as overseas. I plan to begin construction on a new upper school addition and a school gymnasium in the very near future. This will allow us to have a dedicated building for our secondary students’ program and a gym for our entire school.
I am excited about the new direction for the Trent InternationalE School. I encourage you to be a part of this new direction for Trent!
