Welcome to Good Shepherd Lutheran School. We are delighted that you have taken the first step in learning more about our school and how it can serve your child’s needs.

GSLS is a special place. We are located in the beautiful rolling hills of Novato as a ministry of Good Shepherd Lutheran Church. Our school is a community that aims to provide academic excellence in a nurturing Christian environment. We place careful emphasis on integrating Christ's message of grace and compassion into the foundation of our curriculum. Students at GSLS are afforded a value system of respect, generosity, and tolerance to build a balanced foundation that helps them navigate the frame work of our society.

With the numerous influences surrounding our children on a daily basis, it can be concerning to entrust someone else with your child. At GSLS, we take this seriously and we feel it is our duty that each child entrusted to us feels loved and secure.   

Our students know they are loved. Recently, when I met with a group of our alumni, I asked the question, "In one sentence, how would you describe your experience as a student at Good Shepherd?" One alumnus quickly responded, "Good Shepherd raised me well." Indeed, this is a special place. We love our students as we love our own, and we work our level best to foster their security while providing an exceptional academic experience.

We sincerely appreciate your consideration of our school and we look forward to meeting with you soon. As you read through our website we encourage you to consider taking a tour. The energy at GSLS is high, and no doubt you will find it is a  unique community and a strong testimony to who we are and what we offer. We look forward to meeting you soon.

In His Name,

Pastor John Beckman
