Our philosophy:

Good Shepherd Lutheran School is dedicated to welcoming all children and their families by teaching God’s love and grace, in a safe, loving environment, through a strong, age appropriate, academic program. In partnership with the families, we strive to develop the physical, cognitive, social, emotional, and spiritual growth of each child through a play-based learning approach.
