The warm, friendly environment begins the moment that students enter the parking lot. Students greet students, parents greet parents, and more often than not, a welcoming headmaster enjoys his morning coffee amongst the hubbub. As the beginning of the school day draws nearer, the parking lot empties save for a few stragglers. Meanwhile, the buzz begins inside the building as teachers make final preparations for their day and students get up to speed on last night’s concert, basketball game or youth group.
After the first bell, it’s time to get down to the business of education. Triad’s small class sizes and caring teachers however, ensure that the family atmosphere and spiritual encouragement are not lost. A walk through the elementary hallway will often reveal a high school student reading to the kindergarten class. And a math lesson in junior high might be delayed for a moment when a student asks the teacher if the class can pray for a friend experiencing trials outside of school.
After a challenging session in a college preparatory environment, the day rarely ends with the last academic class. Most Triad students find time around their studies to participate in school-sponsored activities, often more than one at a time. It’s not uncommon for students to go directly from track practice to play rehearsal, or for basketball practice to be canceled due to the winter musical program. After all, what else would students have to talk about when they arrive at school tomorrow morning?
