Our School: GSLS
Good Shepherd Lutheran School
is proud to provide a quality Christian education
to the children of our church and community.
Please spend some time here
and learn a little more about what we offer.
We believe strongly in the importance of raising up children in the blessings and promises of God in Christ Jesus. People ask us if we teach "Lutheran" doctrine! Our answer? Of COURSE we do! Spend some time on our web site, and you will see why we believe the teachings of the Lutheran Church are exactly what children - and their families - need!
We use Abeka and Veritas for phonics, reading and math with our K4's.
We use Phonics Museum from Veritas Press for phonics and reading. We continue to use Abeka for math with our K5 students. Art and music are also part of the curriculum.
Phonics Museum continues in the 1st Grade. We begin using Saxon for Math. We use the Shurley method for grammar and introduce Latin in a simple way, building a foundation for language, history and literary appreciation. Art and music are also part of the curriculum.
Second through Fifth Grades
Shurley continues in the upper grades, as does Saxon Math. Veritas is used for world history. We continue more rigorously with Latin as the years progress, working toward admission to the National Latin Exam when ready. Students who have been with us from K4 on are generally ready for testing in NLE by the 4th grade. Science, art and music are also part of the curriculum.
We believe that children learn best in a loving yet structured environment. Positive self-esteem grows as a result of incremental mastery of knowledge and skills. The best education is one in which children learn the skills and delight of learning, growing into thoughtful, wise and pious young Christian men and women. That is our aim at Good Shepherd. We hope you will consider us.
