The vision of Jesus the Good Shepherd School is to instill in each child a love of learning and a love of God, self, and others.
- We believe our role is to give our students the best intellectual, spiritual, physical, and social environment as possible.
- We believe our school should be a safe and secure learning environment for all students.
- We believe schools should focus on learning and have high expectations for academic achievement.
- We believe curriculum and instruction practices should incorporate a variety of learning activities to accommodate different learning styles.
- We believe our academic excellence is rooted in Christian principles as revealed by God through the Catholic Church.
- We believe the integration of technology into student learning is an essential part of education.
- We believe our school should instill a knowledge and love of God, self, and others.
- We believe teachers should possess the necessary skills, knowledge, desire, and enthusiasm to make learning a positive experience.
- We believe students should be given a lasting moral and academic foundation, within our curriculum, through prayer, service, self-discipline, individual self-worth, and a positive attitude towards others.
- We believe that the educational process is a responsibility that should be shared among parents, teachers, and students.
- We believe that staff development should be an ongoing process in order to enhance instruction and increase student achievement.
In 1960, our school opened with enrollment from grades Kindergarten through grade six. Grades seven and eight were later additions. The Daughters of the Cross were the teaching Sisters who staffed Jesus the Good Shepherd School for forty years. The school services Jesus the Good Shepherd Parish, Catholics of other parishes, and families of other denominations who accept our philosophy and mission. Our role, as an extension of the parental responsibility to teach, is to give our students the best intellectual, spiritual, physical and social environment. Our academic excellence is rooted in Christian principles as revealed by God through the Catholic Church. In August of 2002, seventh and eighth grade classes moved to St. Frederick High School for a new Junior High program. The addition of PreKindergarten 3 and 4 rounded out our school.
