I attended TLS from Kindergarten through eighth grade and promised myself I'd do anything I could to send my children there. Two of my kids have since graduated and my youngest is a 5th grader at Topeka Lutheran. I love that all of my children have been provided a solid foundation of Christian education to prepare them for high school and beyond. I love our TLS family of students, parents and faculty!

TLS is a family. The students are taught how to live in Christ's love and forgiveness each and every day. A great community where all are welcome!

TLS has been a wonderful school for our son. He receives an individualized education with small class sizes, patient and energetic teachers and a supportive staff, as well as families. Every year, I am impressed with how much he learns and grows. I feel they really stress academic excellence with not only what they are teaching but how they teach it. They teach through interactive lessons, group projects, one-on-one learning, field trips, presentations, mentorship with older students and much more.
