My daughter started at Good Shepherd in January the 2013-2014 school year. The first time we visited, she immediately loved it and wanted to switch from the public school to GS. The teachers have been wonderful--good discipline, and lots of love and caring also. She has been learning so much academically. The curriculum and instruction are wonderful! But more importantly, she is growing spiritually. It is wonderful that she is learning about God in ALL of the subjects. The teachers, staff, and principal are all wonderful examples in their Christ-like attitudes and behavior. Small classes are a real plus--lots of individualized attention. Last June, my daughter begged to go back to GS for this school year; and she has frequently asked that we keep her here until the end of 8th grade. We feel so good about her being at GS every day. This school is such a blessing!!!

Good Shepherd is a wonderful, nurturing, environment for any child. The teachers don't teach for a big paycheck (they don't get paid enough, in my opinion!), they teach because they truly love the kids and love God. There are lots of schools in the area. Kingston City Schools are not a safe environment. There are other Christian/Catholic schools, too; but none is like Good Shepherd. The curriculum is excellent and, from my own experience, both my boys have outstanding academic skills and knowledge. My oldest is now in Coleman Catholic and has a firm foundation for moving ahead with high school, and on to college. Don't underestimate this little school. They have a lot to offer!
You will absolutely love Good Shepherd!!! The teachers are truly amazing!! My children love going to school and can't wait to tell me about their day. They have small class sizes and everyone knows everyone. The teachers inspire the kids to do their best. You and your children will be very happy at this school. I highly recommend this school if you want out of public school and want a truly amazing education for your child.
