Our teachers are highly effective and put in a lot of time and effort in ensuring our students are successful both from an academic perspective as well as from a personal perspective. We are truly blessed to have the teaching staff that we have.
I love the fact that the older students on many occasions help "mentor" the younger students be it as a chapel buddy or as a reading buddy. I have seen numerous occasions where the students show caring, compassion, and support to all of the students regardless of grade level.
The school upholds the teachings in scripture and also holds all students to a level of behavioral accountability which I appreciate so much as a parent. It is one of the reasons why my child goes here.
My child's experience at this school has been absolutely amazing! Our oldest child went to public school and now we have chosen to send our youngest to Our Shepherd for a variety of reasons. The kindergarten and first grade teachers have gone above and beyond with all of their students (I volunteer a lot at the school and see the interaction for myself) and we are so pleased with the Christian education she is receiving.
My child just graduated out of kindergarten at Our Shepherd and we could not be more pleased. Standards on behavior and participation are high, but life is not going to cut them any slack as they move on in school, so why should kindergarten be any different. As much as they learned, they had fun in equal measure . The environment is faithfully and loving with dedicated teachers.
