My children are blessed to be students at Shepherd! Yes, the teachers do a great job of teaching, but they do more than that. Their Christian faith is so evident in their lessons and interactions with the children. They personally care about each student in their classroom. My children will be very well prepared for high school in all regards. Shepherd of the Hills is a blessing for my family!

We've been sending our son to SOTH for the past two years and couldn't be more pleased! Everything from the doctrinaly sound curriculum to the faculty and even the location; this school fits our family and our values perfectly. If you are a Christian, looking for a solid and Christ-centered education for your young one, this school is definitely for you!

I was a bit skeptical of the multi-grade classroom... until all four of our children have been enrolled. The setting has allowed our children to learn at their own pace, regardless of grade level, as the teachers can adjust their individual ability levels in any given subject with the grade level that is appropriate for them. While the school has many strengths, one that we truly appreciate is the real connection that the teachers make with each student and the genuine desire they have to help each child succeed.

Both of my children have attended Shepherd of the Hills. I can't say enough good things about it. The values and morals that are instilled in the children there make for such a positive learning environment. The children can focus on their studies, without engaging in peer conflicts, bullying, and other negative distractions that may be more prevalent in a public school environment. The small class size is a major plus, as is the multi-grade classroom, allowing the children to learn from each other in a unique way. The Christ-centered approach to learning and life is of infinite value. I highly recommend this school!

The multi-grade classrooms are an amazing classroom environment that allows my kids learn more than they would at their grade level. I am sometimes amazed at what they have learned just by being in a classroom with many different grades.

If you are thinking about private school for your child in the aftermath of the 2020 COVID-19 pandemic, you should exercise even more due diligence than you usually would. More here.
