Holy Trinity Episcopal School
3rd Grade Private School
The 3rd grade is a pivotal time in your little one’s education. When children reach this central point of elementary school, they shift into learning more complex educational skills to prepare them for middle school.
At Holy Trinity Episcopal School in Houston, TX, we offer premier third-grade education experiences designed to expand children’s independence, improve their social skills, and prepare them for standardized testing. The third-grade program at HTES creates a positive learning environment where your child can thrive and feel fully supported throughout their learning journey.
The HTES 3rd Grade Experience
Third grade is when children move past “learning to read” and start “reading to learn.” Until this point, your child developed valuable skills in reading, socializing, counting, and history that allowed them to catch a glimpse of how the world works. Now, they must use these building blocks as tools to develop their knowledge further.
Quality third-grade education and one-on-one focused support help children take these major steps, from enjoying fun cartoon books to studying for an exam. During third grade, students discover how to learn independently, study information, and apply what they learn to tests.
At Holy Trinity, we employ a proven approach to child development to ensure that all students progress through elementary school successfully and happily. Our class sizes are small, 16 to 18 students, so each student can receive the personalized attention they need to succeed.
