Incorporated into the Good Shepherd School Seal are three words: knowledge, faith, and service. These are the three pillars upon which our school is built. Helping our students grow and develop in these three key areas continues to be the greatest part of our mission. The knowledge portion we see on a daily basis. Each day as parents, we ask our children, “What did you learn today?”. We check backpacks for returned assignments. We help our children with their homework and studies. Our educators strive to instill the knowledge in our students that they need to be prepared for all that is to come both in their schooling and future careers.
