We have always wanted our 3 young girls to attend Catholic School, but felt we would never be able to afford it. During covid, the stress of online schooling pushed us to request info from Good Shepherd. They were so helpful and affordable. Our children were enrolled and in school within a few days. The Principle is Amazing, and the staff is great! We are blessed. What a great school!!

My granddaughter attends Good Shepherd since Pre-K. As a grandparent, the love you have for your grandchild is like nothing you can explain. Your child or grandchild is a special gem. Good Shepherd is a school where I feel my grandchild is safe, well educated and loved. The bond she has with her friends and school staff is so precious. I am so thankful my daughter chose this school for my grandbaby.

We love this little school! They have met distance learning head on, offering structured class times/meetings and additional support when needed, including a study hall with the Principal. From Pre-K4 through 8th grade, GSCS has a tremendous amount of heart & soul & a welcoming family atmosphere.

Good Shepherd Catholic School is an incredible place for my daughter to learn and grow. Small class sizes make it possible for meaningful interactions to occur between students and teachers. Kids can get the extra one-on-one attention they may need. The curriculum at GSCS holds our students to high standards that set them up for lifelong learning. My daughter loves hers friends and teachers and generally enjoys going to school every day!
