My son has attended Trinity since he was 4 years old. He will complete 8th grade this year. Trinity is his second home. If 9-12 grades were offered we would definitely stay for another four years!!!!!

We never expected to attend to Trinity Lutheran. I thank God daily for putting Trinity into our lives. We have been Blessed. Trinity is a school centered around Christ, community, curriculum, commitment., and communication. Christ is the heart, the peace, and the head of Trinity. He is present, and actively guiding the decisions, the actions of the school and its staff. Trinity is a community of families working together for the good of the school and the good of Christ. The curriculum is set at the HCD, pushing the children to achieve, to develop a love of learning. Pupils are prepared for the future, academically and spiritually. Teachers, families, and the church are committed to Trinity; it shows daily through preparation, volunteer service, and financial support. Finally, communication is taken seriously. The principal and teachers are easily reached by phone or email; dialogue is open. Via Gradelink and the school website, parents are kept abreast of grades and school happenings. My daughter graduates this year. After 28 continuous years of elementary school, I can honestly say Trinity is the best I've experienced. We have been Blessed.

Trinity Lutheran is a great Christian School. My three children have attended since preschool and my oldest it in middle school now. The teachers are caring and attentive. Other families are amazing. Education is wonderful. But above all, I love that my kids get to learn that Jesus is in everything they do everyday. He is part of their studies, sports, discipline, play...everything! Nothing else is more important than that. :)

My son is currently in preschool at Trinity and my daughter went to preschool here as well. We love Trinity, their preschool program is wonderful. It starts at 2 years old and the children do not have to be potty trained which is great! The teachers are great, the campus is safe, clean and very friendly. We love Trinity Preschool.

This school is the way school should be. The teachers are all compassionate and excellent examples of how we need to be courteous and kind to everyone. The class size is small and in addition there are teacher helpers so that each child receives a lot of one on one time if needed. The environment is open and welcoming with high parent involvement. We unfortunately only attended for one year due to a military move but I wish we could package the school and take it with us. Since there is preschool and elementary, it was convenient for both of my kids to attend. I was always treated with loving kindness by all the staff and saw the principal out and walking around all the time giving children high fives. Trinity is an unbeatable place for God centered learning, fun, and grace and well worth the investment!

Thoroughly impressed for this school. Although you will pay for it. There was only a single teacher i was unhappy with, the rest were phenominal. The principal and admin staff are unbelievably responsive. My kids attended for 4 full years, unfortunately it was no longer affordable, otherwise they would still be attending. Parent involvement is excellent as well, take the time and get to know the other parents, it is well worth your while. Where else can you find enough parents to fully staff and drive kids to all of the field trips, they dont have a bus. Negatives: Ever increasing cost, After School care is also expensive, no bussing anywhere, constant feeling that the school is trying to milk money through 1000 different fund raisers per year.

I love taking my children to Trinity every day. This school has been a blessing to my children and our family. The welcoming and close knit communittee spirit that I have found here, is like no other school I know. I thank God for this great gift.

Both of my daughters have attended TLS from 3 year old preschool through 8th grade. Not only have they received an excellent education, they are prepared to go into the world and stand firm in their faith and convictions. Now that my oldest is a junior at Millennium HS it has become clear how the education and training received at Trinity has prepared her both academically and in her personal life. She is ranked 2nd in a class of 600 students and is able to balance studies with clubs, varsity cheer, volunteering and a personal life. My eighth grader is also an excellent student who is proficient at the time management needed for great grades, volleyball, confirmation and her social life. We are grateful to the caring influence the teachers and staff gave both of them over the years. A unexpected blessing I love and appreciate is the caliber of students and parents that make up TLS school. Their care, dedication and influence has completed the wonderful place that is Trinity Lutheran School.

Love this school. My daughter has attended this school since she was 2 1/2 years old. The preschool is outstanding. Great teachers, loving environment. She is currently a 1st Grader. Her reading is growing by leaps and bounds. The school approach to reading is wonderful. In 1st grade they have music, science, social studies, spanish with all the traditional subjects. How wonderful to be exposed to so much. The homework load is reasonable, Well worth the tuition, my daughter will have a wide open opportunity available to her because of the education she is receiving at Trinity Lutheran School.

Best school we could find and we looked at what seemed like "them all". This is the only school I actually felt GOOD about leaving my kids there. The staff is amazing!! Sure, you have to pay for extra things here and there but its a private school! That is what you do. If you want things to be free, go to one of the many over crowded, poorly performing public schools in the area. I have felt welcomed by the community and so happy that they accept parent involvement. We will stay at this school as long as we can!! No others even compare.

Trinity's teachers are dedicated, loving and caring! They spend quality time with their students. Their academic program is fun, yet challenging, and Trinity's students rank highly. The Principal stands behind them, and makes tough decisions at times to make sure the campus runs smoothly.

Not one bad thing could I say about Trinity Lutheran School. I originally brought my daughter to Trinity, because I wanted her to learn the things about Christ I couldnt teach her. My family is so thrilled to be a part of this school. Not only is she learning about the Christian fellowship, but her academics have sky rocketed. The time that the teachers take with the students here is awesome. The whole Trinity staff is very welcoming! We plan to stay as long as we possibly can.

Overpriced; too many "extra" fees/fundraisers on top of the high priced tuition; Politics are too involved; the principal was uncaring for the needs of my child. Mrs Mossi was great! We started when my daughter was 2 years old & son was 4. Left mid 1st grade (son). Moved to Phoenix Christian West from Trinity. My son was behind in his math skills that he had to play catch up. Very disappointing indeed, especially after spending thousands of dollars from Trinity, and knowing that your child is behind in his math skills! Beware!

We recently started sending our daughter here, and WOW, we were impressed as soon as we walked in. We looked at so many schools, but this one was the only one that made it seem like our daughter would be well taken care of, and that they were really interested in her. It's an amazing school with exceptional teachers and staff. We were blown away!

My granddaughter goes to Trinity Lutheran School and it has been one of the most rewarding experiences for her and our family. The staff truly care about each student and we feel that she is very safe and loved there. Not only are they taught the basics of education, but they also learn valuable lessons such as respect for others, along with many other such lessons which will carry her through life. We could not wish for more.

Trinity is a school at the top of the charts for academics. My children have attended since Preschool and we feel like part of a family. A great foundation was given by Trinity for my daughter who is off to High School next year. With any school, students, parents there's will be issues, the difference is at Trinity, mature, God-centered people/faculty are involved to direct the issues/situation in a loving manner.
