Our History

Trinity Basin Preparatory is a free public charter school that was founded in 1998. Since opening the first campus in 1999 in Oak Cliff, Trinity Basin Preparatory has expanded to provide a safe, disciplined learning environment for more than 3,160 students in grades PK3 through 8. Trinity Basin Preparatory now has three campuses in Oak Cliff and two in Fort Worth, providing an education that focuses on literacy and language acquisition skills.

We strive to provide a well-rounded and rigorous education to our students focusing on the core academic areas of reading, writing, math, science and social studies. Expectations on our campuses are very high for students and faculty in order to foster an environment of achievement and success. Teachers who are successful within our organization understand the need to reach each individual student, regardless of any perceived learning barriers. At Trinity Basin Preparatory, we believe every child can succeed, and our teachers, staff, and administrators are all dedicated to that success.
