I can't say enough wonderful things about Trinity. I have two children attending there now, one going into the second grade and the other is going into the forth. I have an older son who graduated from Trinity three years ago. We have loved every teacher and are very blessed with the experiences, both academic and spiritual, that have come our way through attending Trinity. I can't imagine placing my children in any other school.

I attended Trinity from Preschool to 8th grade and receive a wonderful education. I always looked forward to going to school. I was very well prepared to enter public high school. Thanks to all the teachers.

Trinity is a wonderful school with high academic standards and a staff who love the Lord. I am very proud to be a teacher there and excited for our upcoming year. We have a brand new reading curriculum, a wonderful new sixth grade teacher, and are committed to excellence in Christ! We've been through changes and experienced some disgruntled parents who tried to take the school down, but we are dedicated to continuing our ministry and pleased to have a chance to serve our community. Our graduates perform well in high school year after year, our students have study skills and work ethic, and most importantly they have a strong moral foundation built from their relationships with Jesus. I can personally verify that the teachers care deeply about each student and we want each child to succeed.

I have had my children in Trinity since daycare/preschool. The teachers are loving, caring, and address concerns. I am excited to have my youngest going into the 6th grade this next year. Trinity Lutheran School and Daycare has been around for over 100 years and despite the negative comments on here, Trinity Lutheran School will be here for several more years to come. There are a handful of parents that are disgruntled because Trinity runs their school as a Christian School not a public school funded by the government. I have always communicated with my child's teachers and the principal and I have attended the school board meetings and asked questions about some of the rumors going around about the school. All the rumors going around started with disgruntled parents. I love the Lord and I love Trinity and my daughter will be there for the 6th, 7th, and 8th grade year and I am looking forward to the changes coming next year!

My kids have attended Trinity since preschool. I have seen a lot of changes through the years and I know the teachers and school board are working together to improve school. They hired a new science teacher that does a lot of hands on experiments. All the teachers are truly caring and the class sizes are small enough that a child can get the individual attention he/she needs. When they leave the school not only did they get a great education but they have wonderful study habits and excellent computer skills. My oldest child is in high school now and is excelling due to the skills aquired from Trinity. My youngest is in middle school and has no desire to go to school anywhere else. The school has a parent group called CAPTAINS which has great participation and has done a lot of things for the school. The children not only learn the core classes but religion, memory, computers & choir. They can take band and particiapate in athletics as well. I feel no school is ever perfect but the teachers and school board are working together to try and make changes that will benefit the children in the future.

All I want to know is what is going on at this school?............Where is the Christian values and the staff that know how to run a school?..... I went in for a tour, because I was told this was a great school. The lady that answered the phone was rude and I am not sure if she is the one who gave us a tour, but that lady was pretty rude also. Teaching staff is not friendly and didn't acknowledge us as we went into their classrooms. The principle I never saw and two parents were standing by the gym gossiping. I am very disappointed I actually was hoping to read great things on this website so that I could make a decision. I walked into one classroom and the teacher was on her cell phone what are these parents paying for?......I wish this school luck and I think we will keep looking for a school to enroll our children in for next year.

My kids have attended this school for two years and I am very pleased. Any issues related to unkindness have been immediately addressed by the teachers, when brought to their attention, so our experience has been quite positive. Our children's unique issues have also been addressed by teachers, and my suggestions were respected and implemented. I appreciate the accountability of the school and the homework policy. We are very happy with the school.

I pulled my child out of Trinity and a lot of other parents have done the same thing. The staff and administration does not know who their customers are!! Some of the teachers are on ego-trips and refuse to work with parents to improve curriculum, grading or other issues, and the administration does not hold them accountable. Do not think that investing in a Christian, private-school education at Trinity will result a nurturing environment for your child. Trinity staff and administration is in denial. When they finally wake up to the fact that parents have a choice and should have input, take the initiative to follow-up with families that leave to find out why, and then do some major housekeeping with the teaching staff, they might have a chance at rebuilding their reputation. But word of mouth is killing them as more and more loyal supporters are being burned and moving out... it may already be too late at this point. I know it is for us.

The childcare center may have problems, but the school is on course to close soon (few yrs) because of the board of education and principal's lack of quality leadership. As with any school, there are good teachers and bad ones. Unfortunately the poor ones outnumber the good ones. (Side note---the second grade teacher is an EXCELLENT instructor!) Please think seriously about sending your child to Trinity. No qualified principal lets things happen in his/her school that Trinity's principal has...bullying, parents gossiping and mostly a sense of unrest among the staff and parents. The school is falling apart.

As a parent that had two children attend Trinity I do believe the school is a very good chance to get a great education. My oldest son graduated there and stugled while at Trinity with the education , yet has a 4.0 in high school. He complained how hard it was all the time , I knew it was worth the hard work. I believe they do have a few teachers, the second grade teacher to be spacific, that have cost the school a lot of kids. I tell everyone after second grade it is unbelievable. One teacher I know there has told there friends the same based on one teacher. That is the only negative thing I could say. Family oriented and very supportive. All the people truly care and provide a great education. There are no perfect schools all have something, I believe the education is the most important and it was proven by my childs experience in high school. He received the tools to succeed.

I, along with many parents are very concerned and disappointed on the changes that have taken place at Trinity Childcare & Preschool. You had wonderful administration and staff and someone felt the need to destroy the wonderful direction the program was heading. I have a few friends who have sent their children to Trinity School and have since taken them elsewhere because of the choices the board members have made. You need to OPEN your eyes and see the only people you are really hurting are the children and staff. They won't allow parents to be on the early childhood board but allow family members to work together and run a school! Maybe that is the reason why wonderful, hard working people are gone and friends and family still are working at the center and school. Does anyone follow the ratings on this site? The falling of the school has been happening for years it is evident in the comments. I wish the school and childcare luck and would NOT recommend either one!

Your child will get a "better than public school education" at Trinity. A Christian education is their primary goal and they do that well in the classroom...but, many of the teachers lack in truly caring about the children. Some staff members act as if they are impatiently waiting for retirement and it shows daily in the classroom with yelling, scaring students and treating them unfairly. I would highly recommend sending your children to Trinity if they are going into kindergarten, 6th grade and/or 7th grade. These are the teachers who put their heart and soul into their teaching and students. Beware of Trinity's parental gossip community. Luckily the worst offenders have left the school, but there are still many parents who have nothing better to do than speak ill of people they dont like.

It is nice to see positive comments about Trinity Lutheran School again. Trinity has some positive aspects, most of the K-5th grade teachers are great. Reading math and are better then most. Unfortunately the school may have waited too long for corrective action. It's easy to point the finger at upset or disgruntled parents, that is how you defer from taking responsibility of your actions and poor decision making. Most people don't enjoy being negative or disgruntled unless you give them a reason. Don't give them a reason! You will always have 1 or 2 that will never be satisfied, but not an exodus unless something is wrong. Parent's didn't just make a rash decision in not sending there kids back or to destroy Trinity. Parent's want the best for their children. They wanted to see a willingness, change, improvement, and Trinity to find their way back.Trinity can be a great school again, get back to a Christ centered education and a Christ centered staff and not just the fringe. If the staff truly reflected the love and the gospel of Christ you would see a difference in both students and parents. Issues like bulling, gossip, and negativity would cease. Do unto others. Be the best!

I would like to comment on the wonderful changes I see happening in the childcare and preschool! Some may not agree because they are bias to the previous director and preschool-pre-k teacher. This director knows her stuff! I had an issue and brought it to her attention and she explained the reasons why it had to be a certain way. Of course I didn't want to believe and I wanted to be the one who knows better for the safety of my child and I purchased a copy of rules and regulations for a childcare center. I was SHOCKED! This director gained my respect and I have kept her and the center in my prayers because, people do not like change this a great change if you just got to know her and the amount of knowledge she has. This individual has gone through some rough times and has had some really cruel things said about her. She is a very CHRISTIAN and STRONG women to still be here today wanting to make the changes she has shared with me. I know this first hand because I WAS one of the parents who enjoyed complaining and trying to get under her skin. She is a tough cookie and I thank GOD that he has sent her to us!

As you can see from the reviews, most of the issues are with disgruntled parents who can never be happy...It is good thay have moved on so they can try and destroy the next school they are invoved with. As far as ratings for the school...the quality of the students speak for themselves. Always top notch students with great athletic skills and good character. Good luck with the public school system in Pueblo, ive been there and these parents have no idea what they are in for.

I'be taught @ Trinity for over 15 years. As any school we are filled with humans that have life issues; BUT, in those years we have been represented each one with one to five high school grads that are in the top 5 of their class. Typically, 75 to 80% of our grads represent with a minimum of a silver cord. Normally, it's GOLD with honors! This is only the educational quality represented. There aren't enough words to describe ALL of the other assets Trinity teaches it's students. Just suffice by saying we have a m.ultitude of doctors, engineers, nurses, and even rocket scientist that graduated from our school just since I've been there.

How sad to see the negavive remarks about this school. Usually, negative remarks come from very negavite, half-glass empty people who have nothing better to do than complain! I have a daughter who attended Trinity and now goes to public high school. After attending an open house at the public high school she goes to, I am frightened that she will not be challenged like she was for the last 7 years. She has taken every honors class available as a freshman! Actions speak louder than words. I am aware that most Trinity graduates graduate in the the top 10% of their persepctive high schools ;do the math people! Many parents who are negative about teachers are negative only because they can't see beyond their own agendas, and usually that agenda is all about making their child feel good. I have seen a gossipy group of parents sit in the halls and look for anything to complain about, many of which have pulled their students and put them elsewhere this year, but not without trying to destruct the school in their wake. Glad they are gone...now let's focus on building the school back up to a positive learning environment full of what is most important...sharing the love of Christ.

I am a graduate of Trinity as is my daughter, and my son still attends. I graduated from Central High School, 3rd of 442, my daughter graduated from Pueblo West, 11th of 250. I believe any school is only as good as a parent/student makes it. No school is perfect (welcome to life), and the school board here is making strides to make improvements. What do I think the best thing is about Trinity - Learning how to learn in a Christian atmosphere where kids are safe. What makes Trinity successful and graduate many students who go on to be valedictorians and salutatorians and successful in life? Parental involvement. If you are looking for a school where your child can feel safe and learn in a Christian environment, this is the school for you.

Where do I began. The new year is starting and I wish we could put last year behind us. We lost a terrific Prek/Preschool teacher because the new Director.....thinks she knows everything. Our Preschool/Prek teacher was great, but now we have to deal with all these changes because we have a dictator who thinks she knows how to run a school. Why didn't she stay where she was? Or did they let her go? Cause that's what they need to do here! Let's check the numbers and see how many children are enrolled and while at it check the daycare too. I understand that there has been so many staff and children that have left there, what leadership she has. I'm totally disappointed with this situation enrollying our little ones keeps them at Trinity but when you loose good teachers and staff it makes you scared and not trustworthy of the organization so I have decided to pull my child and enroll them elsewhere. So Thank You board for hiring such a rude uncaring director.

Normally I would not join in rating my child's school, but the last couple of reviews here are quite a bit off base. Unfortunately they are correct in stating that the school has gone down hill this past year. The principal/8th grade teacher is far too passive in regards to parents having problems with staff,general discipline, and in his teaching style (much too simple). The 7th grade teacher teaches literature, bible study, and math. He is the top teacher and most dedicated teacher at this school, an excellent role model,and my kids cannot wait to have him for their teacher. The 5th grade teacher is scary strict-too strict for children of that age. The school board replaced one excellent teacher with an very inexperienced young woman who just wants to be friends with the students and parents. Trinty's science program should improve drastically this year without the program they previously had. Trinity has some major hurdles to overcome to get back to the wonderful all around school it was several years ago. Hopefully this will happen soon.

Ok, if you are reading this site you are going to be subject to a variety of posts by a varitey of parents. Some of these parents are extremely satisfied, some are not. What is the most important thing to remember is that only you can decide what is best for your child. That being said, here is my overview: Your child will learn a lot of things here. The academics are average in comparison to public school. I do see this school falling behind rapidly if changes are not made. There was a wonderful science program that was up and running with a teacher who was always looking to better the kids but she has since left due to a lack of support from the board and the school in general. That I know of, currently the homeroom teachers will be "teaching" science-bad idea.. Math and Language are great for the middle school-your kids will learn a great deal here. History needs imporvement. There is not much for electives unless you like music. For the most part, christian values are taught here but are easily pushed aside when conflice arises. In general students are not held accountable for their actions and are allowed to do as they wish. Some major changes are needed.

Kindergarten and first grade teachers = great and fun! Second and third grade teachers = so-so! Fourth teacher = too young to know how to properly prepare for fifth grade (no accountability for students) Fifth grade teacher = no patience! Middle school Language teacher = wonderful and caring! Middle school math teacher = terrific role-model, excellent teacher! Middle school history teacher = too busy to teach properly! Principal=not interested in doing a proper job

In response to the parent who questioned if the complaints about the school had been taken to the principle or the school board. I would like to inform you that many issues this school year were taken to the principle and after there was no action, the school board was informed. The school board determined that they support the inept principle and they are unwilling to take the necessary action to improve the school. Nothing has changed, the teachers are still bullies and think they are always right. I highly discourage parent from enrolling in this school.If you do , do not be surprised with what you get.

At this time, I am disappointed with the faculty at Trinity. They favor students, break their OWN rules in the handbook, and let teacher's children get away with many things. Though the math and science teacher are excellent, the other teachers in the middle school need to leave ASAP. I will not consider sending my child here again.

We sent both our children through Trinity. The Christian atmosphere was excellent - our main reason for sending them there. The education they received was outstanding. While no school is perfect, we found that our children were well equipped for high school, they learned how to do homework - on their own - they learned to respect their teachers - they learned how to manage their time to get their homework done and do other things. Public school teachers have made comments to us on how our children behave and they can tell the students from Trinity - because of everything I mentioned above. Once again, no school is perfect but we found Trinity to be an excellent fit for our family.

Wow, things never change. This is the most toxic school I have ever seen. I pulled my kids out a few years ago because my younger son was being mistreated by his teacher and the principal. I moved both of my boys to public school and they thrived. In fact, the free public school was academically ahead of this overpriced, God awful excuse of a school. Not all of the teachers have accreditation, so many are of low quality; the principal has the worst leadership skills I have ever seen; the parents are the nastiest most back stabbing bunch; and the students have the most rotten attitudes. There is an elitist caste system where parents and kids of well connected, wealthy families do whatever they want with impunity. A Christian school, this place is not.

Do not believe everything you read in the newspaper article! Only a couple of teachers would be considered "excellent". Parents are unkind and gossip about everyone (students, parents, staff) who they do not like. If your child has difficulty learning in the classroom they will suggest you take him/her to public school. (that's what happened to us; just because my child was not getting good enough grades!)

What a WONDERFUL school!!! My children are receiving an excellent education with HIGH Chirstian values! The teachers go way above what is expected of them and will do anything to help a student! Unfortunately I have seen parents who will flat out lie in order to get their child out of trouble. Trinity does NOT tolerate this! Their discipline policy is excellent and I applaud the teachers and staff for treating the children as one of their very own! The education is well above any public school in the area. The students are very prepared for high school. My son, during his freshman year in HS was amazed that their were kids who did not know the basics of grammar and math. The teachers at the high schools know that a Trinity graduate is a well prepared and responsible student!

It was interesting to come across this site again after originally posting in Feb 05, back when our daughter was a kindergartner. She is still at Trinity and will be starting the 4th grade. I feel that some of the negative comments are indeed legitimate complaints, but I overwhelmingly agree with the positive reviews. No school is perfect. I, too, have observed the elitism/materialism, which contradict the Christian values that are supposed to be taught and it used to really bother me. However, I've never experienced those kind of attitudes from the staff (they've been very supportive & understanding when I've mentioned my concerns). Over time and after many discussions with our daughter I have come to realize that this is more my issue, not hers. She LOVES her school and does well academically. Overall, we are pretty happy with it too.

When questioned what policies do you have when a child becomes physical with another child - the response was 'depends'. This school does not have a full time principal, the principal expects the teachers to handle situations on their own. Our son left here and was behind in math and had to do catch up. I think that this is the best private school in Pueblo, but there are not many to choose from. They really need administration to run this school. A full time principal, not an 8th grade teacher that is available at the end of the day.

My daughter and niece have attended Trinity since pre-school. The experience has been nothing but positive for both of them. I was amazed to see a few bad reviews, but that is to be expected where ever you go. Almost all of the the children in my daughters class have been at Trinity since they were in pre-school, I think this fact speaks for itself.

I feel that Trinity was a good school, with a good education system. When I attended Trinity. This school does have a wonderful sports program, however, if they feel that you are not good enough, they won't let you play. I did play volleyball and did very well. Teacher to student ratio is small, and that's what I did like about it. There is an intense parent involvement, when I was going there, they would send home a 'blue slip' for the parent to sign if homework was not completed. I do like this school and would recommend it to anyone. If you wish to email me, I will be most happy to share my entire experience with you.

I think the biggest thing I learned here is how elitest this environment can be. I still have a tough time with the way they treated my child. I have run into 6 other parents in the past year that have pulled their children out of this school over the years because of the way they treated their kids. They seemed so focused on who has what, whose mother works, and what kind of an SUV you have to care about the quality of their children's education. That is why they aren't willing to help those on hard times. I wouldn't leave my dog with this group, even if I had left him food and water. They can demoralize you and your child pretty quickly.

My oldest child had gone and completed at this school and my youngest one started there. In all I had supported this school for 14 years. My family fell on hard times and I had inquired and (I thought) obtained a small partial scholarship to help offset some of the cost. But when it came down to it they never followed through with the help. When I pulled my son out of that school no one even called to tell me anything. However, he has since gone to a public school and I feel he is receiving a much better education. If you are sending your school here for Christian values...they don't even operate in that way at all. Give it a second thought before you leap into this situation.
