School Reviews

My daughter has gone to Good Shepherd since kindergarten- and she will be entering 8th grade this year. The focus is in building strong character and academic excellence. Parents are able to get to know one another. There is a strong sense of community. I hear about problems like bullying and social hazing- but these are not allowed to exist at Good Shepherd. I cannot recommend this school highly enough!
