This school not only has superb academics, but it has an amazing staff that cares for your children as their own. I can't imagine sending my kids to any other school! They have all thrived here! Also, kids from all communities and religions are welcomed here. If you call around to local high schools, you will find that Good Shepherd students all thrive and are top of their class!

My kids do their homework as soon as they walk in the door! It is always done in time to go outside and play and have some time to themselves before dinner.

Good Shepherd encourages and pushes the children to use all of their God given talents and abilities to fullest of their capabilities. Our children are encouraged to give their best, and challenged in a healthy way to go beyond what they thought they could do. They help the children to see and achieve their fullest potential.

The older children are paired with younger children in reading groups and faith families. The older children also serve as peer tutors. There are so many opportunities for the children to serve their school and their community. They pull together to support children and families in need as well.

I have seen our kids give back awards they were mistakenly given, at sporting events. I have witnessed children admitting to wrong doing, knowing their would be consequences. I have watched the administration and faculty praise our children for their actions. They also demonstrate fairness, integrity, and honesty in the way they lead and teach our children.

Good Shepherd continues to graduate students who go on to graduate top in their class from high school and beyond. They are prepared academically, spiritually, and spiritually. Good Shepherd continues to grow and develop programs to prepare our children to be competitive and successful in all areas of life. This is more than a school, it is a family. I have never experienced a greater learning environment for my children. The teachers, staff, and parents are committed to raising up a generation to change the world. These children are taught compassion, service, integrity, honesty, selflessness, and accountability. This school is developing children who are Christ-centered, educated, strong, determined, and compassionate.

My child attended Good Shepherd Lutheran School (Collinsville IL) through eighth grade. The teachers and staff were wonderful, special, dedicated people. They still are. My child, now in college, learned valuable organizational and other skills at Good Shepherd. We did not worry about our baby at Good Shepherd. At this school, Jesus Christ is Lord and Savior. Your child will be encouraged to accept that. Following your child's progress will encourage you to accept that. While our child was there, we joined the church. We were not expressly invited. We changed. This church is fearless in its mission: It has a fine chapel, but it built the school first. Thank God for Good Shepherd Lutheran School.

Unfortunately we have seen a decline in leadership at the school over the last yea and a half. The focus tends to be on economic goals versus education, spiritual growth and social growth. It is very disappointing and we will be finding a new church and school home for our family.

This school has wonderful teachers who care about each student. They even call the parents when they might think the child is having some trouble with something. I think that is pretty special. They do not let kids fall through the cracks. They really care.

The teachers care about their students and if there is problem or concern in the classroom they tend to it right away with the student if it continues, they call the parents and discuss any issues or conerns. The staff is excellent!!!

I attended Good Shepherd from Pre-K to 8th grade and I now attend Collinsville High School. I am ranked in the top five of my class, and, not surprisingly, numerous other Good Shepherd alumni also rank among the top quarter of my graduating class. I highly recommend this school. During my years at Good Shepherd, I felt like I was part of a family rather than one unimportant part of a mass of children being shuffled through the public school system. Each teacher genuinely cares about the needs and the futures of their students and they strive daily to help each student make the most of themselves. Yes, the school may be expensive, but the education received here is more than worth it and I felt like the curriculum truly challenged me on a daily basis. One day, I hope to send my own children to Good Shepherd.

Good Shepherd has been a wonderful school for our daughter. We are very pleased with the Christian education that she has been receiving. The class sizes have seemed slightly large but I feel that the school is really working on finding quality degreed Christian teachers. The environment is incredibly friendly. Personal interaction from the principal on a daily bases. He actually stands at the front door every morning to greet each student and parent. The curriculum seems appropriately challening for the age. We feel much better sending her to school here than we would any other school in this area.

This school is too big and too expensive. It might as well be a public school. Check the size of the school compared to the size of the church itself. They're main concern is expansion, and this will cripple them in the future. I would NOT recommend this school at all.

Excellent school. Teachers and administrators were fantastic. A strict, loving environment. After the 8th grade my son scored two grade levels higher than the average public school student in the same district. Teacher's were always available for help and counseling. No child is ever left behind. They take pride in each and every student.
