Trinity Lutheran School seeks to partner with parents and support them in their God-given responsibility to raise their children. We believe that each child who enters our building is a precious Child of God. We seek to serve the whole child, and are aware of each child’s social, emotional, physical, academic and spiritual needs.
Proven History of Success
Trinity Lutheran School has been serving children and their families for 135 years. The teachers at Trinity represent over 200 years of teaching experience. The teachers commit to ongoing professional development and actively engage in state and national conferences, workshops, webinars, sharing and discussing best practices based on research, and individual reading of current professional articles.
TLS, ECE, and Summer Camp, are accredited through the National Lutheran School Accreditation Commission (NLSA). TLS is also a Nebraska State Board of Education Approved School. As part of the NLSA process, a self-study was completed by over 50 stakeholders including parents, teachers, congregational leaders and members during the 2016/2017 school year. The evidence-based self-study identified areas of strength and opportunities for growth. A school action plan with 56 goals was developed and will be implemented over the next four years. The purpose of the entire accreditation process is to continually improve the educational experience and instruction delivered to our students.
Award Winning Teachers
Trinity Lutheran School is blessed to have amazing teachers. Our teachers go above and beyond the call of duty every single day. We have three teachers that have won amazing awards in the past year. Miss Jurchen and Mrs. Leimbach have both received the Gold Apple Award from 1011 News and Doane University. Mrs. Shelia Ziems received Teacher of the Year Award from the Brighlights program. We are so proud of our teachers and appreciate all they do for the students.
Fantastic Music Program
Music is important at Trinity and all students attend music and choir. Students are given a chance to share their musical talents at our weekly chapel services, annual musical programs and occasional special assemblies that parents are invited to attend. Students have also performed in the community at events including singing at local churches, the national anthem at a Lincoln Stars Hockey game and the Governor’s Christmas Tree Lighting ceremony at the Nebraska State Capitol.
We invite you to visit Trinity and find out more about the many programs and events that students and their families enjoy each year. We look forward to partnering with parents in developing each child’s individual academic potential while caring for their social, emotional and spiritual needs.
