School Reviews

  • Recommended May 13, 2013 - I can say only good things about Good Shepherd. Our daughter is now in her third year here and has had a wonderful experience, personally and academically. The teachers truly care about teaching and often form mentoring relationships with their students. The field trips are amazing. We transferred our daughter from a nearby Eagle Rock public school that is considered "good" (by LAUSD standards) but she blossomed and started to love learning when she entered Good Shepherd. -- MHS - Posted by Parent
  • Recommended April 09, 2012 - After a long search we decided on Good Shepherd and are thrilled with the results. Our son now loves learning and has formed close friendships with some of the other students. No bullies here, just a warm caring atmosphere. It helps that there are only 8 other students in his class — a big improvement over the 31 kids he sat with at the previous school. Highly recommended. -- LBB - Posted by Parent
