This is our third year at GSES and we love it! The headmaster is fabulous, the teachers wonderful and the chef prepared meals divine. Best kept secret in Richmond! Our daughter spent two miserable years in public school before we moved her here. She has blossomed in this environment. Best decision ...  Read more

This is our 5th year at GSES; we are holding a wait-&-see what happens attitude. Last year ended horribly. Academically, GSES is very good and almost individual learning environment has been excellent for our child. However, management changed last year, and the heavy handed style, along with personality ...  Read more

While Good Shepherd is not a wealthy school (It's tuition is very reasonable.), it is sound financially. As is the case with many private schools, enrollment is smaller this year due to the recession. There is no 3rd grade this year because there are no 3rd graders. The church with which it is affiliated ...  Read more

Even though GSES has mostly engaging and knowlegable teachers, there still are some teachers that weigh the growth of the school down. GSES has fine soccer and basketball teams though. Currently, there is no 3rd grade at GSES which tells us that GSES is suffering ecnomical issues. Overall, GSES is a ...  Read more

We are new to the school this year, having transferred from public school. Going from a class size of 26 to 28 students to the small classes at Good Shepherd has made a world of difference for our boys. We are thrilled with our choice and wouldn't consider any other school. The school's accreditation ...  Read more

My son is in his fourth year at GSES, and I could not be happier with the results. I appreciate the school's focus on respect, character, and personal accountability. His test scores have been exeptional, and I attribute this to the rigorous academic program, the caring of his teachers and the dedicated ...  Read more
