Our Mission

It is the mission of Good Shepherd Lutheran School to offer an enriched environment with academic excellence in a nurturing Christian setting.


Our Philosophy

Good Shepherd Lutheran School is a mission of Good Shepherd Lutheran Church and exists as a coeducational, Christian day school, encompassing preschool and kindergarten through eighth grade.

GSLS is a unique, WASC (Western Association of Schools & Colleges) accredited program that incorporates a carefully planned curriculum in which children feel both challenged and supported. Students are nurtured while being given the foundation they need for life. Whether they are in preschool, elementary, or middle school, they are treated with respect and are expected to do so with their peers and teachers. Teachers and staff are trained to identify and constructively resolve conflict, providing guidance to help students make age appropriate decisions that will help them throughout their lives and academic career.

GSLS exists to nurture children in Christian faith that embraces hope, love, respect, responsibility and compassion, all of which reflect our dedication to community.

We believe excellence in education occurs through: 

Dynamic Relationships and Partnerships- Each member of our community is valued and brings a unique set of talents, gifts, and perspective. Everyone is welcome at our table. 

Excellent Instruction- Professional educators are dedicated to our students in caring, innovative and purposeful ways. We believe a well-constructed questions is just a meaninful as an insightful answer. 

A Christian-Centered Community- Central to our daily work is following Christ's example of intentional inclusion, forgiveness, prayer, kindness, growth, justice, and mercy. 

Lifetime Preparation- A strong academic program, enriched by a commitment to the fine arts, strives to produce tomorrow's Christian leaders who go forth to make a profound impact on the world.
