Heartwarming Student Stories

We could not ask for a better experience for our children.
“We could not ask for a better experience for our children than what they received at GSLS. The supportive teachers, outstanding academics, and strong faith development prepared them for high school and beyond.”
—GSLS Parent

I have found the things I learned to be essential for my life now.
“At Good Shepherd, my faith was nurtured by the laudable teachers there. My teachers had a close, caring relationship with every single student. The environment led me to make lasting friendships that I still have today. The best part of GSLS for me is the fact that my teachers still know all of their students. I truly enjoyed my time at GSLS and have found the things I learned to be essential for my life now.”

We came to GSLS because our daughter was struggling in school.
“We came to GSLS because our daughter was struggling in school. What we got from GSLS was so much more than what we expected! Our daughter is thriving; she has come out of her shell. The school has become our second home and family. The love and support she receives from the teachers and staff helps to build a strong foundation that will help her as she goes on to high school.”
—GSLS Parent

GSLS gives appropriate homework and ample time to complete it.
“Coming from a well-known fundamental school in town, we are no strangers to homework. It used to take us hours to complete and lots and lots of tears. GSLS gives appropriate homework and ample time to complete it. They also make sure the students are well prepared to finish their work. It now takes us way less time to complete and no tears because my son is learning in class and has the confidence needed to complete his homework. He is now motivated and excited to do it and it’s right the first time!”
—GSLS Parent

I was an 8th grade graduate from GSLS in 1994 and now have decided to send my children to this school.
“I was an 8th grade graduate from GSLS in 1994 and now have decided to send my children to this school. GSLS proudly adheres to developing the ‘whole’ child with astronomical successes. The STEM curriculum we’ve been shown is completely up to date. The small class sizes are just one of the offerings that have drawn me back to this school. The quarterly conferences are so helpful, but the daily/weekly feedback is what makes me feel like a team. The structured after school program allows my children the help they need to complete their daily homework assignments. My daughters love it here!
—GSLS Graduate & Parent

ALL children are welcomed here, with open arms, and their families as well.
“I was initially concerned about enrolling because we are not members of a Lutheran church. My family has since learned that ALL children are welcomed here, with open arms, their families as well. My children have thrived in this attentive and dynamic environment and I feel included in their education. In addition to teaching faith and academics, high value is placed on learning to respect others. It’s a joy for our family to be a part of the GSLS family!”
—GSLS Parent

Good Shepherd laid a great foundation for me – I became a Lutheran school teacher and principal.
“Good Shepherd will always hold a special place in my heart. Good Shepherd laid a great foundation for me, one that was strong in academics – I was high school valedictorian – and strong for my faith development – I became a Lutheran school teacher and principal. I will always be a fan of Good Shepherd.”
—GSLS Graduate

I made friends that will last a lifetime.
“Not only did I receive a phenomenal Christian education, but I made friends that will last a lifetime.”
—GSLS Graduate

A strong Christian environment for all students!
“GSLS provides a strong Christian environment for all students! The school day begins with the Pledge of Allegiance and a prayer. Children are encouraged to make thoughtful decisions and do everything with kindness.”
