We were blessed to have found Shepherd of the Coast for our children. The staff is very friendly and the teachers really care about the kids. It feels like we are one big family, and we love this school! and they have a wonderful VPK program.

We are so blessed to have found Shepherd of the Coast for our family. Besides finding a wonderful church home, our children are enrolled in a Christian school and receiving a quality education. The staff at the school cares about each individual child, and knows all of the children; they are not 'lost in the crowd' as in most large schools. There is a family element at Shepherd of the Coast which makes us feel our children are well cared for and safe along with receiving an excellent Christian education. The newly remodeled classrooms are beautiful as well. I highly recommend this school to anyone!!

This is a great school in the making! I was impressed with the friendly staff and teachers. They are improving the school and it looks quite promising! Can't wait to see the final look. Academic, spiritual and professional describe this Gold Coast hidden gem.

The quality of academics is excellant along with the combined experience of the teachers. Parents are always involved in this church/school. Extracurriculat activities are limited due to the size of school.

The staff is extremely cordial and helpful. This school also accepts the McKay scholarship. The staff takes time out of their busy schedule to assist the parents. The students are a number one priority at this school. The only disadvantage is the age of the buildings and the location is directly across from the hospital and next door to the fire station.

Community ratings and reviews do not represent the views of GreatSchools nor does GreatSchools check their accuracy or verify the reviewers' identities. Use your discretion when evaluating these reviews.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
