  • My two children are going to GSLS. They are 7 and 6 years old. They are learning a lot and they very happy in that environment. The word of the Lord is carry through just not the teachers, but the staff and parents. It is amazing to see all the children happy in that great environment. I like that the teacher to student ratio is not high as a public school. Teachers are able to be closer and give a better one on one education to the children. I am a very happy parent that believes that GSLS is getting better and better every day

  • We have a great music program here! A new program begins this fall for grades K-7. Kids who have music in school have proven to do better in their basic subjects. Come be a part of Good Shepherd!

  • Good Shepherd Lutheran School is proud to announce that we have found our "Called" Principal and are so excited. This is going to be our best year yet. Our teachers are excited and ready to teach. Our new A-Beka curriculum is based on Christian principals. We have an awesome new music teacher, sign language classes and our computers have just arrived! Come visit us and see what a difference it makes in your child's life when Christ has an active part in it.

  • GSLS has survived a second change in Principals. These changes were made to improve the school and were necessary. We have sent a "call" out for a new Principal. A "called" Principal is someone who has been trained in a Lutheran college and has dedicated his life to serving our Lord in a Christian school. We are proud of our staff, teachers, parents and students as they have continued to support us through the changes we made. Our vision continues to be to share the Lord with students, give them the best education possible and employ teachers that are dedicated to both. Our future looks very promising and we know that God has had a hand in all that happens at GSLS. Come visit us and see what we are all about. We gladly give tours and have information available for Aug registration in both the elementary and preschool. Join us and see our Lord in action.

  • Another administrator out. KL was made to be the greatest since sliced bread. After a short year, she is out. What a place, constantly in upheaval. Remember only a year ago (before they moved their last administrator out)what a happy and wonderful place GS was? Now, even a new building can't help. Until this school gets it's school board under control (currently being led by a crossing guard)it will never thrive.

  • As the board administrator for GSLS I am the first to admit that we have had problems in the past but our future is looking great. Our new school is open, our teachers are awesome, our curriculum is the best available. Come visit us and see first hand what we have to offer. Don't let others make the choice for you by bad feelings expressed by a change in administration last year. I am proud of our church and school. We are looking forward to building a new preschool and opening a toddlers program. Join us for our Open House on March 8th, 6:30pm. See you there.

  • What an awesome school! Sure, it has some issues, but they are so minor. I had my son in the local public schools and he wasn't learning a thing. Then I put him in Good Shepherd and it was like they found his "on" switch to his brain! And add to that the new building that just opened and the learning environment gets even better!

    What's the downside? My son doesn't like their uniforms very much. This issue has been presented to the school administration and I hope they address this in the near future. But in the grand scheme of things this is a very minor issue.

    My son loves his teacher and all the staff seem to be caring and loving people. I would never consider sending him anywhere else.

  • God bless this school! It is obvious from reading these comments that this school is very blessed by ridding itself from uncommitted unprofessional teachers and parents who throw the words "christian" and "prayer" and "pray" around without knowing the meaning. You just don't condemn anything that is preaching and teaching God's Word. This whole thing reeks of a "witch hunt" by very disgruntled mothers who cannot run things "their" way. I cannot imagine any Lutheran school not having great curriculum. I think those of you that have left need to get on with your life and let everyone else live their own and make their own choices. When my kid is President and your kid is digging ditches, I will then remind you what school his foundation was built at--Good Shepherd!

  • Good Shepherd Lutheran School is progressing. I have seen the school grow from a pre-school into a modern state of the art school so near completion. This school will go from pre-school and eventually through the eight grade. I was down there today and the school has not even started but is very near completion and is beautiful inside. There is so much harmony there amongst the new teachers that the environment is so positive. It seems that the old teachers and the parents were misled by someone formerly employed. "Believe 2/3's of what you see and 1/2 of what you read", as the old saying goes. The new Pastor is such a warm and caring person who takes every opportunity to thank the Congregation for hiring him. How many of us are that grateful? Rumors which are not even true are being spread about this school. The devil delights in attacking all Christian Schools as he gains a victory every time one fails. Why not consider that we are in a spiritul war everywhere we turn. I have seen this Church and School go through amazing triumphs in the dozen years that I have been there. You will never regret sending your child to this great professional school. The School Board is composed of dedicated people who work long hours without pay. I invite any of you who are complaining to come on down and donate your time and serve in the interest of your children before you complain. Some people know not of what they speak.

  • I am not quite understanding this. It sounds to me like the same people just keep writing the same comments. I had to go look at this school out of curiosity. I was really impressed by what I saw in action. Teachers excited and happy about being there while preparing in temporary classrooms. I specifically asked the building foreman when the school would be ready and he assured me it would be occupied in October. I looked through brand new curriculum! I met the Disney certified art teacher and the Spanish teacher. What are you people not seeing???
    This sounds to me more like sour grapes from a bunch of pre-menapausal women with too much time on their hands! Don't be swayed by a afew very unchristian characters! Think for yourself!
