“It really does take a village to raise children and we are so thankful for the village (Good Shepherd School) that we have in our lives.”

“My older son transferred to Good Shepherd after attending public school while my younger son started Kindergarten at Good Shepherd. They were both immediately welcomed by their classmates and also by the student body as a whole. I was amazed that older students at Good Shepherd knew my children’s names and interacted with them after school, at Extended Care (the after-school program) and at school events. I also found that the parents of Good Shepherd students were very welcoming and we were invited to social events starting on the first day of school. The close-knit and welcoming community made a huge difference in both our sons’ adjustment to a new school. I continue to be impressed with the diversity of the student body as well as the commitment to academics at each grade level. I am thankful we chose this school for our family.”

“We have been with GSS since 2013; now, both of my daughters attend GSS and we ALL LOVE it. If you are looking for a school that is small, challenges your child in academics, encourages teacher/parent involvement while maintaining a “Family\Community feel” then do consider Good Shepherd School. ”

“Our family lives in Pacifica and our children have attended Good Shepherd School for several years. Good Shepherd School provides our children with a solid academic foundation along with strong Christian values. The school encourages parent participation and we have a real sense of community. The student to teacher ratio is low, and our teachers are very committed to our children. We love this school! ”

“Good Shepherd was the best choice we could have made for our daughter’s education. The student to teacher ratio is excellent and makes me feel that my child gets the attention she needs to succeed. The teachers and staff are all friendly and always available for any questions I may have.Although this is only our second year at Good Shepherd, I feel like I’ve gotten to know everybody, including the staff and students, in a way that wouldn’t have been possible at a bigger school.”

“As parents with children in multiple grades, our perspective of Good Shepherd School is comprehensive and we are proud to say that we can’t recommend it enough. Our experience has been exceedingly rich and gratifying. Not only do we feel that our children are receiving the best education, we are confident that their lives are being enriched through extraordinary teachers, extracurricular activities, and an interactive school environment that promotes morality and kindness. The collaborative approach that the teachers take to education, both through in-year consultation and as the children transition between years, produces an environment whereby each child’s needs/strengths are defined and addressed accordingly by the faculty collective. And their intuition is amazing. The teachers “open-door” policy and routine communication with the parents is a differentiator for the school.We are truly blessed to have found such a nurturing environment in which our children can grow and prosper.”
