École Good Shepherd School is a
Kindergarten to Grade Six School that serves the town of Okotoks
and the surrounding rural area south of Calgary. The school presently has about
880 students and a teaching staff of approximately 45 teachers and 13 support
staff. The mission of École Good Shepherd School is to provide a high standard
of academic education within a nurturing and caring Catholic environment.
Our staff focus on the development of the whole child in relation to the values
and teachings of the Gospels and strive to bring our students closer to God
through formalized Religious Education classes, daily prayer, and participation
in regular masses and liturgies throughout the year. As of September 2013,
École Good Shepherd School now includes a French Immersion program for students
in kindergarten through grade three. This program will continue to
progress until it encompasses kindergarten through grade six. As a dual
track school, we are proud of the diverse opportunities we offer to ensure that
students reach their full potential.
Students, staff and parents are encouraged to express their faith in many ways
and to allow Christ, the Good Shepherd, to live within them. The school
operates on a team philosophy where all teachers are connected to a team of
teachers that meet weekly to focus on the improvement of student learning. The
school provides academic opportunities in all domains including art, computers,
drama, music, and learning support. Our grade six students also have the
opportunity to compete in school sports at divisional tournaments and band
Our Principal, Wayne Lorenz, and Vice Principals, Rhonda Schachterle and Paul
Lavery, encourage you to visit us at 52 Robinson Drive or call 403-938-4318 to
