Welcome to our school website. Our school has a long and proud history in Education in Tralee. Scoil Lios Teilic was first established on the 10th of October 1864 and the school has continued to serve the locality in its present site since 1969. The school is situated to the North of Tralee town with beautiful panoramic views of the Slieve Mish Mountains, Tralee Bay and the bustling town.

The school's current enrolment is 209 (2021/2022).  We are an eight classroom co-educational school with single stream classes from junior infants to sixth class.  We have an Administrative Principal, three Learning Support/Resource Teachers, four Special Needs Assistants, a School Secretary and a School Caretaker.  Scoil Lios Teilic is a Catholic School under the patronage of the Bishop of Kerry Ray Browne. Our school has a Catholic Ethos and we also welcome children from other faiths and none.  In keeping with the principles of education, our school is democratically run by our Board of Management. The involvement of parents is sought and encouraged both at Board and Parent Association level. We have an extremely supportive Parents Association who get involved in many positive initiatives every academic year.
