Nestled in the heart of southern Dallas is a school community committed to creating an experience that will develop students into 21st-century learners and, ultimately, global leaders. It is what Principal Marquetta Masters calls The Trinity Heights Experience.”
Trinity Heights Talented & Gifted, located at 1515 Lynn Haven Ave., recently completed its much-anticipated buildout, which now includes instruction for first through eighth grade. The school, currently home to more than 325 scholars, has cultivated a number of programs that emphasize academic excellence, collaboration, communication, and creativity.
“Creativity” is the word of the day, because Trinity Heights is placing an emphasis on the expansion of its dynamic fine arts department, which will include choir, band, dance, and several forms of art.
“Fine Arts is a great tool to help students connect, mature, and make friends,” said Fine Arts teacher Latricia Grayson. “There are few things as rewarding as watching students light up when they create their own things and pieces.”
Band and choir students at Trinity Heights will have the opportunity to explore music from different genres and cultures, and will be challenged to create their own pieces and arrangements and watch them come to life. Students in Art 1, 2, and 3 will be able to take advantage of advanced level art, including art history, digital design, pottery and painting.
Next year, the school is expanding its fine arts offerings to include dance, an art form that introduces students to the kinesthetic arena of art while helping them develop cognitively.
“Fine arts is all about helping students develop and express their own voice,” Grayson said.
Dallas ISD is home to first-class fine arts at Trinity Heights Talented & Gifted.
