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.

History[edit]

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.

Accreditation[edit]

Trinity Lutheran is fully accredited through both NLSA and AdvancED,
