Good Shepherd Elementary School 5

Good Shepherd is an outstanding school. There is an active focus on technology with an emphasis on teaching relevant computer skills (i.e.: programming, technology, etc). The teachers and the staff all know the students by name and are keenly aware of each student's personality. Like all other catholic schools, rumors of financial distress is always prevalent but has never hampered the school in providing excellent education for the kids. The school is taking steps to differentiate itself from other catholic schools in the area by stepping up the curriculum being offered while keeping the tuition affordable. A very fine balance indeed.

The school is having some financial difficulties and low enrollment. Four teachers left the staff and less experienced teachers are being hired. But it is the only Catholic school on the coastside, with a small nuturing environment.

My wife was the toughest critic when my son entered kindergarden and my daughter 19 months apart about to enter the following year. This, especially since our only choice in the public school lottery (Vallemar) was selected. My wife, an asian immigrant, with a college degree is now convinced Good Shepherd School was the right decision and has made a positive impact towards our children. The school has offered discipline, love, respect and academics to our children and family. Great kindergarden and first grade teachers so far. The principal and administration are professional and set the standard.

I would recommend this school to everyone. They really care about you at Good Shepherd. Houston Garcia '08

Good Shepherd Elementary has enriched our children in academics, sports, community, spiritually, and much more. We as parents are very involved in fundraising events, because we love Good Shepherd Elementary. Our children are very very happy at their school.

My daughter has attended Good Shepeherd school for 3 years. Unfortunately due to our move we have to swith school. Good Shepeherd is a very good school with a very friendly and helpful staff. It is a pretty diverse crowd which to me is very important.
