My family began its partnership with Good Shepherd Lutheran School in 2005. This partnership has faithfully grown and we currently have three children attending. Our story of choosing the right school is not a simple one. Not being from the Collinsville area, I had no plan past pre-school. A search for a small, faith based school began. We did several school visits, interviews, and listened to many parent referrals. I think we knew from the moment the phone calls and visits began Good Shepherd was where we felt most at home. We are not members of Good Shepherd church, in fact we are Catholic. Finding a school that practiced our faith was not a priority, however finding an environment that allowed our children to explore their faith was. Looking back several years later we definitely made the best decision for our family.
