We enrolled our daughter for kindergarten this year. Our public schools were all virtual. Good Shepherd was open full time. We were not planning on staying for first grade. Since we live right next door to our public school in town. However, the education and the attention my daughter has received here has been far beyond our expectations! We are extremely happy with GSA and have met so many wonderful families! We love the diversity our child is experiencing ! We LOVE her teacher! The Staff and the clergy are amazing! We will be staying at GSA in the fall!
