GOOD SHEPHERD LUTHERAN SCHOOL teaches phonics in order to prepare students for reading. The English language is based on the recognition of letters and the pronunciation of sounds because learning to read phonetically enables children to understand the grammatical aspects of the English language. Did you know that half of all English words have a Latin origin? The study of Latin enables children to develop and understand a wider range of vocabulary in the English language. We begin teaching Latin in 3rd grade. This is another of the many reasons to consider Good Shepherd Lutheran School for your child/children.
Our unique aspects of the curriculum include:
A Christ-centered Education
BEFORE AND AFTER SCHOOL CARE: programs will be offered for Good Shepherd Lutheran School and Preschool students beginning in the fall of 2015! More details will be available in coming weeks.

It’s just another of the many reasons to consider Good Shepherd Lutheran School/Preschool for your children or grandchildren. Check the display at the school table in the narthex for more reasons.
