    This is a wonderful school! It feels like you're part of a family there. Teachers are loving and caring. The school gave all the middle school kids an iPad to replace their text books this year. The transition went smoothly and the students are really benefiting from the new technology.

    Our family has been at Good Shepherd School for the past 2 years and have been very pleased with our experience thus far. Since our first visit to the school we immediately felt a sense of homeliness there. Within the first week of school we bumped into the principal outside of school and were surprised that she knew us and our daughter by name! That says a lot to me. The teachers thus far pk3-kindergarten have been wonderful - they truly care for and love our children as if they were their own. Curriculum has impressed me this year especially with our daughter reading more than fluently within only weeks of the start of kindergarten (like magic). There are many activities throughout the year that create a sense of community between families and we have met many wonderful families that are always there to support each other both in and out of school. Spiritually the children learn to LOVE God and they routinely pray together and attend mass. If I could improve one thing about the school it would be for the school families and church to have a stronger connection - I think this would lead to a stronger and more rooted spiritual development for the child.

    This school has changed specially this year with new principal and new young inexperienced teachers. many of the kids are failing and the teachers don't know how to turn it around. We are really considering removing our child next year.

    I am very happy with the school. I have 3 kids currently enrolled and very pleased with the teachers and office staff. They have plenty of extra curricular activities to choose from and the most important part is the religious formation they are receiving. We are happy with GSCS and my kids too.

    My son went to Good Shepherd Catholic School. The teachers were good but we did not like the principal. Very poor leadership. She was never available every time we tried to contact her.

    Good Shepherd Catholic School is an excellent educational institution. One of my children graduated from this school and was able to participate in many academic competetions in her last year here. I was very pleased when many medals were brought back. The alumni are all doing very well in their high schools and colleges all due to the solid academic foundation they received at GSCS. My son still has a few years to graduate and is also doing very well. The teachers are all certified. They are extremely dedicated. The love and patience they show our kids is incredible. There are many after school activities. The administration is excellent. We have an award winning School Chior and Drama Club. Also being a Parochial School religion is a very important part of the curriculum. Children are learning not only to succeed in school but to be better human beings.

    Good Shepherd is the light in my sons life every day. At home we are having lots of problems but when my son goes to school he is happy and always comes home with a smile on his face. The curriculum is also very challenging. The best choice I've made!

    After much contemplation I am very happy that I chose Good Shepherd Catholic School as an educational institution for my children who are currently in PK4 and K. The teachers and staff are wonderful. I feel that the morals and love that are present at home are being stressed at school. I am glad that I have chosen GSCS! Alina Cutie-Rodriguez
