“Superar la timidez, el miedo... Hay que confrontar los miedos, no eludirlos!” -Mr. Guerra
A group of more than 70 students had the opportunity to listen to a thought-provoking talk from Mr. Guerra as part of a Banco Popular speaker program. His focus on courage and the importance of asking questions was one that reinforced our theme for the year. We would like to thank Sr. Guerra and Banco Popular for giving their time for this valuable experience for our students. ...

Re-Imagining Education – PBLS in Social Studies
Students in Global History 1 (9th grade) and US History (11th grade) have both recently completed a project centered around subject-specific content/skills and 21st century-skills. The 9th graders project was focused on the Renaissance, while the 11th graders focused on slavery. The 9th grade projects were displayed and shared in the library. Below are some links to students finished projects (documentaries) in the 11th grade:
Pico Duarte Trip
Congratulations to this year’s group of students, parents, and staff who successfully climbed Pico Duarte. This group was mostly 9th grade students, but did include some upper classman who also wanted to take on this challenge. The reports back were that the weather was very cold, but not rainy, which made for a better trail, but all in all a successful trip to the tallest point in the Caribbean!!!
This year we have a number of students who have made it past the first round of the natio...
Re-Imaging Education: Recent PBL Experiences
10th Grade English – Identity
As an alternate assessment for the mid-term exam, students in 10th grade completed a project focused on the impact of identity. The project included 21st century skills, presentations (using “Prezi”), and a rigorous written report. During mid-term exams for English, a few exemplars were chosen to present to the whole class. The engagement and motivation was high throughout the process, and especially during these presentations. The projects were a great blend of 21st...
We are proud to share an article written by Andrés Brant Haza that was recently published in the Listin Diario:
Perspectiva de un adolescente
Andrés Orlando Brant Haza
Es posible que en los inicios del movimiento gestor de nuestra Independencia, los Trinitarios fuesen los primeros en ofrecernos el verdadero perfil de un funcionario como servidor de y para la patria. Ser un funcionario significaba ser patriota, defender los intereses de nuestra bella isla y dejar toda la codicia por el bien de todos. Esta ideología murió hac...

Follow My Lead Day
Our dual focus this year, Re-Imaging Education & Leadership, came to life during the recent early dismissal day in October.

Students in 9th and 12th grade participated in a number of activities that day:
Workshop Menu: Students choose two high-interest workshops that were led experts in the field.
A Panel Discussion: A panel of local leaders presented to stu...
On November 7th, 2012 we have our HS Parent Teacher Conference, this year we’re continuing with our use of an online appointment service as we have found it to make the process much more efficient and easy for parents. As always, we welcome your feedback as you go through the process.
The Parent/Teacher Conferences are 15 minutes long and they’re held in each teacher’s room. We are using a service called Genbook. Genbook is a webpage that allows us to have 24/7 online scheduling, and you can make the appointments by yourself.
