Good Shepherd School

Tel: (718)339-2745
Grades: PK - 8 | 337 students
The Good Shepherd School philosophy is rooted in the belief that each child is made in the image and likeness of God, uniquely called to love, learn and share life to the fullest.
As a Catholic School, our teachings are based on the Gospel message of Jesus Christ so that our students will be able to live in a society as responsible Christians, aware of their obligations to God, neighbor and self.
Every student is encouraged to develop as a total person intellectually, emotionally and spiritually.
Our school community seeks to provide an atmosphere where all are enabled to experience positive interactions with others.
This leads to an increase in self-worth and self-respect and growth to the fullest potential.
School activities provide a variety of experiences upon which sound judgments can be made and mutual respect developed.
It is in this atmosphere that Christian values will become, for all, a reality and a life.

School Reviews

I attended Good Shepherd along with all of my siblings in the 1960s as did my Father and his three brothers before us. We Loved our School and Parish and we think back on our time at Good shepherd with nothing but thankfulness to have had the opportunity to receive that level of education in our early years.
