Good Shepherd School is a self-contained educational facility located within Good Shepherd Services. The school is approved by the Maryland State Department of Education as a Type I full day and partial day Special Education and related services program for students in grades 8-12 as well as a GED tests preparation program.
Good Shepherd School is organized to provide a holistic approach by integrating an Individualized Educational Plan with the therapeutic goals for each student. Assignment to classes is based upon assessed needs. Individual Educational Plans or 504 Plans are a necessary part of the education program for students requiring special education services.
Good Shepherd participates in the Summer Food Service Program (SFSP), which was established to ensure that low-income children continue to receive nutritious meals when school is not in session. Free meals, that meet Federal nutrition guidelines, are provided to all children 18 years old and under at approved SFSP sites in areas with significant concentrations of low-income children. Summer site information varies by state and will be available as the school year is ending and summer is about to begin in your community, call 1-866-3-HUNGRY or 1-877-8-HAMBRE (for Spanish speakers) to find a free, nutritious summer meal site near you.
