TLO is an incredible school to send your children. My daugher is in Kindergarten and comes home every day singing new songs. The teachers and administrators show deep concern for their students and their education. The hallways are filled with love of others, respect for authority, pride in one's hard work, and the firm foundation on which TLO stands. TLO is the right choice for our family and perhaps yours as well. After touring the school while it was in session we were sold. It's more than worth the commute!

We love TLO. Our kids are getting a top-notch education from teachers who truly care about the students and challenge them to be their best. We wanted to find a school that offered a strong education in a Christian environment, and TLO has been such a blessing for our kids and our whole family. The small class sizes, extracurricular opportunities, Spanish classes, music and art, combined with the feeling of family, have made TLO our school home, and we look forward to seeing our kids learn and grow there for many years.

TLO is a warm friendly environment with high academic standards. They incorporate programs with all of the students to create a school family feeling. The younger students get to work with the older students and visa versa. For example the older students practice their reading skills by reading to the younger students. My son will be in first grade (2nd year there) and he gets the divided attention that he needs to learn and has progressed rapidly. The curriculum also works at the students pace and let's them excel as far as they want to go. The school offers gym 5 days a week, full day Kindergarten, Spanish for all grades, 2X recess/outdoor time for the younger kids, affordable before and after school care, music, art & much more! I definetely recommend this school, it's wonderful!

Trinity Lone Oak (TLO) is a great school. I have three children that have attended TLo from K-8th grade and my youngest child will be in 6th grade. The school promotes a family environment by connecting the older students with the younger students in a variety of ways throughout the year. TLO is strong academically. As a National Blue Ribbon school, the student test scores are outstanding. The faculty are talented and dedicated to the students. Classes are small and so all students get the level of attention that they need. TLO also offers Spanish to all students and 5-8th grade students can participate in band and sports teams.

Our family loves this school! We've been here for five years and love the warm, personal, family atmosphere. The staff and faculty know all the kids, so no one is left behind. Everyone is encouraged to do their best.

This school is great. My 8th grade Class is really tight and we all trust each other. We have exceptionally high test scores and have fun learning. Our teachers have won awards such as teacher of the week, and our school is a National Blue Ribbon School.

This is really a great school. The small classroom size and commitment to Christain values of humility and peacemaking have a creatd a family of believer and an incredible place to teach children. This year the shool won the Department of Education Blue Ribbon Award for academic evidence. The school consistently test above most schools in the area, private and public. TLO offers art, religion from kindergarten, Spanish from 2nd Grade, and sports programs from 4th grade forward. Great School.

- Strong Lutheran faith based education. - Our student's test scores are among the highest in the nation. This is all due to the excellent teaching and dedication of our teachers. - Other positives include small class sizes and high level of parent involvement.

Community ratings and reviews do not represent the views of GreatSchools nor does GreatSchools check their accuracy or verify the reviewers' identities. Use your discretion when evaluating these reviews.

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.
