I attended this school K-8th grade and had such a great experience that we purposefully moved nearby so our two children could attend as well. The teachers are dedicated and they all look out for every student regardless if they are in their classroom or not. The classes are very small and the teachers are able to meet the needs of various learners while providing a strong Christian education. Technology tools are utilized to enhance instruction and the school continuously looks for ways to improve. Parents are very down to earth and kind. Since the church financially supports school attendance for members the income levels are very diverse, unlike many other private schools. If a family were well off you would never know it! As a parent I know that I can call upon any parent or teacher if we ever needed anything--it's just that kind of place where everyone works together and helps each other out. Truly a great school!

I have been very impressed with this small school. My child has attended their preschool and Kindergarten and I feel she has had a great experience. I am considering keeping her there even though I am not a member of the Church or the Lutheran Faith specifically. My concern is the very small size of the school going forward on into the older grades. The school itself is a very nice facility and the the parents and teachers are both quite involved.

We are very happy with the Christian environment provided at Good Shepherd. The classes are small (less than 20 students) and the teachers have lots of experience. My children learn the word of God everyday and that is very important to us. We are confident that they are learning important skills that they will use for the rest of their lives.

Good Shepherd is the best school in the area. We have a gifted child, and instead of sending her to the local gifted school, we chose to send her here instead because the faculty is willing to work with each child at their level. Their cooperation could not have been better! They are loving, dedicated, very well-organized, wonderful Christians, and excellent with teacher/parent communication. As a result, the children regularly achieve at a much higher level than at any of the area public schools, and they still know at the same time that their teachers genuinely care about them. I would highly recommend this school.

Good Shepherd was an excellent school to prepare my children for high school. The parents are encouraged to be involved in their child's education, and the teachers genuinely care about the students. With teachers, parents, and children working together, it is a win-win situation. The Christ-centered approach is incredible because children are taught each day using Scripture. The teachers know their Bible and live the Christian life, as an awesome example to the students. The faculty is dedicated, and skills will not be overlooked or brushed aside. Each child is accountable for their schoolwork and discipline is done in a firm but loving manner. An At education.
