Founded on February 1, 1960 by Pastor and Mrs. Elmer Bosserman of Trinity Lutheran Church, the school has grown from the original kindergarten and first grade classrooms into its present-day campus. Our facilities include a three-story building for preschool through eighth grade, a beautiful library, a technology lab, a science lab, and a social hall/cafeteria. Expansions in recent years have included a renovated gymnasium, a technology lab, an outdoor classroom, an updated playground, and the addition of spacious classrooms and resource rooms.
Trinity students use traditional and digital textbooks as well as Chromebooks™ (grades 4 through 8) in class and at home for research and assignments. They also participate in beyond-the-classroom learning experiences such as study abroad opportunities and Outdoor Education (camping, biking, kayaking, and more).
A Trinity education emphasizes the lifelong learning process, the development of the whole child, and the growth of worldwide intercultural awareness and understanding, all within the framework provided by a values-based moral compass. Today’s TLS students learn about God’s love and about loving and serving others. They attend Chapel weekly and regularly participate in school and community service projects.
Our dedicated, talented educators are committed to each child’s learning and success. In 2015, TLS was one of 50 private schools from across the country to win the prestigious Blue Ribbon award from the U.S. Department of Education. This award indicates academic achievement levels at or above the 85th percentile in both reading and math.
