It’s such an honor to be Eric’s (student since 2017) sister. This school and the opportunities its given him are phenomenal. To watch him grow, thrive and come out of his shell has been the most rewarding thing for me to watch. Thank you Trousdale for your dedication to these students.

Arts and Recreation


Trousdale School’s Arts and Recreation programming enriches our students’ lives by emphasizing personal fitness and providing opportunities for creative expression. As part of fitness at Trousdale School, students participate in a variety of daily workouts.  They also play a diverse number of sports throughout the year, including basketball, soccer, tennis, disc golf, putt-putt, bocce, volleyball, badminton, and floor hockey. 

Visual art, drama, and music classes provide an important creative outlet. Students access the arts through morning special interest classes and a rotation of afternoon electives, with offerings that change monthly.  In a given month, students may participate in a jam session on a Health Rhythms drum set, learn to play a song on Boomwhackers, participate in an improv skit, collaborate on a papier-mache sculpture, create an acrylic painting, and develop a new embroidery hobby in a craft elective.  Students have annual opportunities to share their talents with their community through our summer stage production and fall community art show.
