When they are at school they learn so there is little to no teaching for the parents to do.

This is a positive, loving and spiritual school. Our three children get up so easily for school in the mornings and feel accepted and have more friends than they could have dreamed of at their past Christian School. Shepherd offers so many great subjects, electives, competitive sports, events and fun family activities. The curriculums are top notch and the teachers love being there and love your children. This is demonstrated by the lack of staff and student turnover. We prayed and prayed for a school like this where we knew our children were safe, happy and learning good morals, academics and about God. This was an answer to our prayers and we love how they have handled any normal student conflict, which is extremely rare. There is a reason this accredited, blue ribbon school has existed so long and will continue to grow and thrive. We thank God for leading us to Shepherd and helping us instill the Christian values we have at home and keeping our children young and faithful. If you take a tour or shadow, attend a chapel, or a Sunday sermon, your decision will be made!

After reading all the reviews and having a child enrolled at SHLS. I have to agree with most of them, both good and bad. I have seen behavior problems go uncorrected. I have noticed some bullying. A few students are kind of rough. But overall most are not. I also have to agree that a couple of times my child was the victim of a bully and I wasn't notified. But that same day received a note about handwriting. The teachers & administration do really care. They try very hard. But as a past reviewer stated, they do over pressure small details and fail to see bigger issues or the "whole" child. Bottom line is its a good school with a staff that does care. A child could do well there, but be prepared to advocate for them.

My daughter Attended this school from age three through the 8th grade she graduated in 2014. My daughter is very motivated and smart. The teachers allowed her to thrive and reach her goals. There was also good presence in sports and she had opportunities to participate and made significant improvements in basketball and track and field. My daughter also really enjoyed having spiritual values in the school. Shepherd prepared my daughter very well for high school and she now attends TMI episcopal school after being awarded a very competitive Alkek Scholarship.

Our daughter has been going to Shepherd since pre K and we have loved it from that time on.From the principal,teachers,pastors,lunch room personal and day care everyone is so very caring.Our daughter is an exceptional student and they have encouraged her to keep this up through everything we as a family went through in the last 2 years With their help and encouragement she has managed a 4.0 grade point average throughout all her years there.Even though I know she worked extremely hard for this I know her being so happy at the school she attended and being encouraged by such great teachers has been a big part of it. She applied for and received a full four year scholarship to St Mary's Hall {Campbell Scholarship}.We know she will blossom there thanks to her great experience at Shepherd of the Hills Lutheran School.Thank you Shepherd family for a amazing 9 years.We will miss you all.Blessings and love The Cooper Family.
