My 2 daughters have attended Trinity for 3 years and it's been the best experience we could have asked for. A loving, Christian, and extremely strong academically environment. The teachers are close to your children and communicate very closely with parents. The small classes help both girls to excel and are testing way ahead of the curve. I would highly recommend to anyone looking for a personalized educational experience with a wonderful group of kids (no bullying, only commradery).

Our kids have been in private and public schools. We recently moved to Colorado, and started our kids at Trinity. They all love school. The teachers and principal are amazing people who honestly want what's best for each child. They are all learning above grade level, and have a Christian education. The kids in their classes are respectful, positive, good influences which is attributed to parent involvement, and teacher expectations in the classroom. This school was a prayer answered for us. THE BEST school our kids have attended.

Our two boys are thriving at Trinity. The small classes, moral bearing, and exceptional staff has prompted us to enroll our older daughters as well

Daughter has been attending for 3 years and Trinity Lutheran as been a wonderful experience for her and us as parents. We transferred her from Public School at the beginning of 6th grade and don't ever regret the decision. Very close knit community and strong academics not to mention the emphasis of Christ at the core of everything.

My daughter has attended Trinity for 6 years. She loves the school and has done very well academically. She also participates on athletic teams. I love the individual attention she receives, the strong academics and the Christ-centered enviornment.

This is a very unorganized and poorly run school. My son did much better and had more opportunities at the public school.

My youngest son has arthritis. It had affected his eyesight, so reading was very difficult for him. His previous school wasn't willing to put forth extra help to help him. Since he switched to Trinity a year and a half ago, his reading has vastly improved. The teaching staff is the best!

Great caring and nurturing school. The kids are taught a Christian education and my kids have done well with Saxon. We like the small classrooms and the fact that the kids all know and care for eachother.

At Trinity Lutheran School we have found a Christian community where our children can grow, learn and develop a closer relationship with Christ and fellow believers. The small classroom size and academics keep them challenged, motivated to learn, and above grade level in every subject. The extra-curricular sport programs have allowed them to develop life-long skills and friendships. The staff and administration at Trinity truly desire what is best for the families they serve and seek their involvement and input at every level. We look forward to many happy years at Trinity!

Trinity is a family. The small class sizes make for an ideal learning environment. God is present in the classroom and on the playground.

Standards and influences in public schools had me concerned. Since my two kids started Trinity Lutheran we've never looked back. They have developed a foundation of character and an ability to learn that is simply outstanding. Obviously a sound academic program with opportunities to compete in extra-curriculars all delivered with Christian principals. This is well worth the investment.

We have been at Trinity since Jan 2008. I was very unhappy with the public school. My son has blossomed under the small class size and academic curriculum. He has been challenged and is no longer bored in school. He looks forward to attending every day. The phonics program is terrific and I love the consistency of math. It teaches the basics first, addition and subtraction. I have been very happy here. The teachers truly care about the students.

My son attended Trinity for 10 years and received a top notch education. The math, science, history, English, reading and grammar programs were superb. He is well prepared for Lutheran High of the Rockies, which is also rigorous. The single biggest benefit was the strong Christian focus. My number one responsibility is to lead my son to Jesus Christ. This school not only supports that goal, but also was proactive. Christian principles are applied not only to class work, but in the socializing as well. Conflict is resolved using Christian principles of love and respect. I want my son not only to know Christ, but also grow up to be a man of integrity and conscience. Trinity was instrumental with this. I do not believe the public schools can really help much with this part. I always had to battle them with my 1st 3 children. This is a great school. Consider it.

My child loves TLS. I love the academics and the loving environment. This is the type of environment you would not be able to find in a public school.

I went to school at Trinity for 2 amazing years! This is the most active private school I have ever attended. They have a wonderful band, choir, basketball team, and track team, and the fact that all of the students are taught Spanish is absolutely fabulous. I could not ask for a better school. The parent/teacher conferences are informative; the teachers are so helpful; tutors are available. I can't recommend this school enough. I would send any child there, because Academics can be adjusted to fit any child's level. Each child is given placement tests in certain subjects, which helps dramatically.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
