As a school we are committed to supporting and caring for all of our learners throughout their elementary school years. Our students learn and grow academically and socially during their time at Bernshausen through individualized academic goal setting and a continuous focus on character education.
Heinrich Bernshausen was born in Feudingen, Germany on December 9, 1822. Heinrich left Germany in 1852 to travel to the area now known as Klein. He made his home and earned his living farming and raising cattle. In 1856, he married Maria Magdalena Hofius. They had three children; Heinrich, Maria, and Wilhelmina “Ida”. Ida was the only child that survived into adulthood. Heinrich and Magdalena remained active citizens in the Big Cypress Community throughout their lives. Heinrich was one of eight original founders of Trinity Lutheran Church which became a cornerstone of the Spring/Klein Community. Heinrich died on February 24, 1892. He and Magdalena are buried in the Trinity Lutheran Church Cemetery.
