Our family has been at Good Shepherd School for the past 2 years and have been very pleased with our experience thus far. Since our first visit to the school, we immediately felt a sense of homeliness there. Within the first week of school, we bumped into the principal outside of school and were surprised that she knew us and our daughter by name! That says a lot to me. The teachers thus far, pk3-kindergarten, have been wonderful - they truly care for and love our children as if they were their own. Curriculum has impressed me, this year especially, with our daughter reading more than fluently within only weeks of the start of kindergarten (like magic). There are many activities throughout the year that create a sense of community between families, and we have met many wonderful families that are always there to support each other both in and out of school. Spiritually, the children learn to LOVE God and they routinely pray together and attend mass. If I could improve one thing about the school, it would be for the school families and church to have a stronger connection - I think this would lead to a stronger and more rooted spiritual development for the child.

This school has changed, specially this year with new principal and new, young inexperienced teachers. many of the kids are failing and the teachers don't know how to turn it around. We are really considering removing our child next year.

I am very happy with the school. I have 3 kids currently enrolled and very pleased with the teachers and office staff. They have plenty of extra curricular activities to choose from and the most important part is the religious formation they are receiving. We are happy with GSCS and my kids too.

My son went to Good Shepherd Catholic School. The teachers were good, but we did not like the principal. Very poor leadership. She was never available every time we tried to contact her.

Good Shepherd Catholic School is an excellent educational institution. One of my children graduated from this school and was able to participate in many academic competetions in her last year here. I was very pleased when many medals were brought back. The alumni are all doing very well in their high schools and colleges all due to the solid academic foundation they received at GSCS. My son still has a few years to graduate and is also doing very well. The teachers are all certified. They are extremely dedicated. The love and patience they show our kids is incredible. There are many after school activities. The administration is excellent. We have an award winning School Chior and Drama Club. Also, being a Parochial School religion is a very important part of the curriculum. Children are learning not only to succeed in school, but to be better human beings.

Good Shepherd is the light in my sons life every day. At home we are having lots of problems, but when my son goes to school he is happy and always comes home with a smile on his face. The curriculum is also very challenging. The best choice I've made!

After much contemplation I am very happy that I chose Good Shepherd Catholic School as an educational institution for my children who are currently in PK4 and K. The teachers and staff are wonderful. I feel that the morals and love that are present at home are being stressed at school. I am glad that I have chosen GSCS! Alina Cutie-Rodriguez

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.
