Good Shepherd Lutheran School – Preschool -8thGrade

Established by the Good Shepherd Lutheran Church more than 40 years ago, Good Shepherd Lutheran School has been more than just a place to go and learn. Generations of alumni, current students and families will tell you about the core values of a Good Shepherd education that shape all that we do inside and outside the classroom. Our slogan, “Creating Foundations for Life” is rooted from our Christian principles that shape who we want our students to become; leaders that believe in the values of Respect, Responsibility, Kindness, and Honesty.

The great philosopher, Aristotle once stated, “Educating the mind without educating the heart is no education at all.” Good Shepherd Lutheran School has always emphasized the importance of both excellence and a strong sense of community in both the classroom setting and in service to our neighborhoods. Understanding what it means to serve more than yourself is of key importance in the chronicle of life. Students begin creating these foundations as early as preschool. Once per week, our students experience Chapel where they sing, pray, and learn about the love of Jesus Christ.



As early of Kindergarten and right up until 8thgrade graduation, our curriculum directly supports the worth of students spending time in and out of classroom, discovering through project-based learning, outdoor education, STEM, and challenging themselves in our incredible visual and performing arts.

At the core of GSLS, you will find a body of talented teachers and staff who are dedicated to creating a well-rounded student. They communicate well with parents and the community, and are steadfast in helping the child grow, academically, socially, and spiritually. Surrounded by classmates who share their values, our students are eager to come to school each day, they develop lifelong relationships, and support each other day in and day out.

We encourage you to experience Good Shepherd Lutheran School and find out what makes us so special. Please join us on campus so we can share the remarkable teaching and learning that occurs every day at GSLS.
