Trinity Lutheran School (TLS) is a private Lutheran school in Bend, Oregon, United States. It is owned and operated by Trinity Lutheran Church of the Missouri Synod[1]. TLS serves approximately 300 students from pre-kindergarten through high school. [2] Trinity's principal is Hanne Krause. Mrs. Krause was the principal of Lutheran High School of San Diego for eight years before moving to Bend.


Trinity opened in 1959, offering only kindergarten. In 1994 the school moved from the church property at the base of Pilot Butte onto a 23-acre (93,000 m2) parcel on Butler Market Road. Having added pre-school through 5th grade in the original building, the new school building allowed TLS to add grades through grade eight. After completion of a new gymnasium, the church also moved to the property. A donation of modular class buildings allowed TLS to open a high school in 2006. Beginning with only five students, Trinity Lutheran High School graduated its first class in 2012.

Current Demographics[edit]

Total enrollment grades PK-12 hovers around 300 students, averaging 75 students per department (primary, intermediate, middle school, and high school).

Future Plans[edit]

Trinity Lutheran Church has plans to add a new middle school & high school building, a new sanctuary, and senior living center to the property by 2020.


Trinity Lutheran is fully accredited through both NLSA and AdvancED,
