PreK-8 Curriculum
Trinity Lutheran School (TLS) provides a Christian education for children from age 4 through 8th grade.  All classes are taught by competent Christian state certified teachers.  (e.g. Early Childhood Teachers & Staff maintain certificates per state law, K-8 teachers are licensed with the State of Missouri, etc.)
 
The faith-integrated learning environment at TLS stimulates children's interest and involvement.  Learning strategies which include the integrated use of technology, homework, and behavior management are designed to encourage responsibility and accountability”lifelong skills.  A mutual feeling of respect, trust, and independence is fostered. 
 
Teachers use research-based instructional practices.  Preschool through Grade 4 classes operate in a self-contained environment utilizing specialty teachers in key areas.  Middle School (Grades 5-8) students are served by teachers who specialize in subject/content areas (class rotation). 
 
Trinity Lutheran School meets or exceeds the standards of the State of Missouri, and provides a high quality education as attested to by regularly administered standardized tests.

Chapel Services

Trinity Lutheran School counts it a privilege to go to a weekly chapel service and worship together as a community. K through grade 8  gather together to have chapel in the church each Wednesday morning at 8:30 AM.  Each class leads at least one chapel service during the school year, as well as each teacher.  Area Lutheran Pastors also volunteer to lead the weekly chapel services. 
 
Since God's Word admonishes us to love in "word and deed we also participate in Chapel offerings giving the students the opportunity to be the hands of Christ to a hurting world. Each year a special mission is chosen to receive the chapel offerings.  The school currently supports a child in Haiti named Davidson.
Parents and members of the church body are welcome to attend.
