    While most little children love going to school ours is unique in that the students keep their love of learning through the upper grades. Montessori education fosters this connection by involving the whole child body and mind. GSCM goes further by restoring Montessori philosophy to its true Catholic context creating a place of peace and beauty where a child can grow physically mentally emotionally and spiritually.

    We have two children attending the Good Shepherd Catholic Montessori and we couldn't be happier with our experience. The teachers are passionate about the Montessori philosophy. My children are receiving an education that is highly individualized and academically rigorous. The Montessori philosophy combined with the faith-based education truly serves the whole child. The principal is approachable and visible. He meets students (& parents) at the door each morning with a handshake and greets them by name. Parents are highly involved with every aspect of the school. We love being part of The Good Shepherd community.

    Outstanding quality of education for the price. Recommended to all families looking whose goal is to have their children love to learn become independent and life-long learn ears in a noncompetitive environment. One of the best Montessori programs in Cincinnati. The school is small and the building is simple but at this school it is not about what is on the outside but what's on the inside that counts. Because classes are not given traditional a-f grades there is less pressure on kids higher academic self esteem (where the focus is on reaching your own potential not a universal standard ) and more intrinsic motivation. Multiple-age classroom also allow greater flexibility for kids working at their own pace while fostering a better social environment where friendships are not based on an age group. Also we are not Catholic but have felt very welcome and included. The peaceful Godly environment has been a great benefit for our children. A very loving environment and excellent price. The principal is highly visible and involved with students and greets every child with a handshake each morning. Better than most school where the principal stays in her office all day.

    I encourage all parents who are looking for a superb well rounded education for their children to come visit GSCM. My children are in the preprimary program and we have seen tremendous positive changes in them as a whole. They are guided to be gentle and loving while being exposed to wonderful educational material. The parent involvement is refreshing and has a community feel that I have not experienced at any other school. We are committed to Montessori and Catholic education and can't wait to see how the next 8-10 years impacts our children for the better!

    Good Shepherd Montessori is a superb school! Next year will be my child's sixth year and we couldn't be more pleased. Offering a combination of Montessori and the catechesis of the Good Shepherd makes for an independent thoughtful and compassionate person. I'm so happy with the person my child is becoming and feel compelled to give much of the credit to this school.

    Excellent Montessori school! Focuses on faith-based education but even an atheist can find loads of meaning here. ) Teachers are top-notch caring for the whole child. Respect is number one here given by the teachers and administration as well as expected and taught to the children. They understand that kids are on their own time frame and teach by "following the child" - brilliant! I love this school and so do my three kids.

    This school is definitely heads and tails above what you would get at most other schools. The teachers and administrators take care to pay personal attention to all the students. There is however a heavy hand and formal indoctrination to the Catholic religion. So if that is ok with you this is a great place to be!
