TLS is a great, small Christian school. Your child will be loved and protected here. We love it! The principal is wonderful!
The school has pros and cons like all schools do. There is some favoritism in the classrooms and sports programs. There is also a definite circle that runs the school. But overall you will feel like part of a family. It's a great enviornment for your children to learn, feel safe, and receive a christian educaiton. If you are not christian, the public schools are fine in this area. Tuition for church members is lower than non-members. There is no bus system. Classes are smaller compareed to public school - on average 14 kids per teacher. Reading programs divided into two groups based on performance. Lots of school events throughout the year (education fairs, grandparents day, back to school fair, movie nights, etc). Principal holds the door and greets the kids every day - great interaction. Volunteers are abundant. Good facility, has really nice gym and baseball diamond. Sports begin in 5th grade but there are camps for those younger during the summer and off-season. Sports include, basketball, baseball, crosss-country, track, volleyball, and cheer. There is also a music and choir program. Overall great school where your kids can build life-long friendships
This school is run by the large Trinity Lutheran Church in Bloomington, a 150-year-old Missouri Synod church. The 5-year-old school is now located in a 5-year-old school building houses preschool through 8th grade. Conservative Christian philosophies dominate. Students receive daily religious training and weekly chapel. Pluses: Sports, a good music & art programs. Weaknesses: Computer facilities, library, little tolerance for kids outside a very tight 'norml'. Early childhood program better than elementary which emphasize seat work, sitting quietly, and fitting. Reading program assumes kids go into first grade reading. Only parents who are church members can lead PTO organizations. But lots of parent involvement. School is location rather inconvenient. Teacher training varies widely. The public schools are not as bad as some here say. Be sure you understand school programs & mission
