All I have to say is how much I love this school! I pulled my 3rd grade son and daughter who was in PreK out of public school in the middle of the year due to hating the Common Core and wanting my kids to having a better foundation. It was the best decision ever. My 9 year old son loves going to school. The curriculum is challenging and keeps him on his toes. My 4 yo is speaking Spanish and learning to read! Teachers and Principal Mrs. Hodges are amazing! GSCS is the best kept secret is Cecil County!!!

Good Shepherd School is an amazing place. I appreciate that the entire school gathers together in the morning for announcements, prayer, and to say The Pledge of Allegiance. My child started at Good Shepherd in kindergarten and is now in third grade. The teachers are encouraging and supportive. The curriculum is challenging. The aftercare program is invaluable to this working parent. Although I am not Catholic, I choose to send my child to Good Shepherd for its academics and atmosphere.

Good Shepherd Catholic School is exactly what you, as a parent, want your child's educational experience to be like. My children are challenged academically, supported emotionally and are learning not only what they need to succeed in school, but what they need to succeed as a productive member of society when they are grown. Good Shepherd provides visible leadership from our principal, teachers, and staff. There is no other place I want my children than Good Shepherd Catholic School!

This is an excellent school. My third child to attend is in Kindergarten and comes home talking about fine art/artists. The school has many enriching classes along with the basics. Both of my older children graduated with many honors and awards and were easily accepted into Private High Schools.

Good Shepherd offers a secure and nurturing environment where children learn and grow educationally and spiritually. Teachers know and love each child as an individual. This school provides a wonderful foundation for our children.

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.

What makes a great teacher? Study after study shows the single most important factor determining the quality of the education a child receives is the quality of his teacher. Here are some characteristics to look for »
