Good Shepherd Preschool, accredited and licensed by the Maryland State Department of Education, is an early childhood education program conveniently located on Rt. 355 in Gaithersburg, Maryland. Montgomery County children have been thriving in our high-quality, nurturing program for more than 25 years. Our school uses research-based curriculums approved by MSDE for their alignment with the state's standards. Our staff are well qualified: our teachers all have bachelor's degrees or better, and all staff are required to continue their professional development through college-level and continuing education coursework in early childhood education and through participating in the Maryland Child Care Credential process. We also value coaching and mentoring as part of the teacher development process, and as such, most lead teachers begin their careers here as substitutes or assistant teachers so that they can learn directly from experienced staff members.

We teach child-friendly Christian values in an environment welcoming of people of all faiths and denominations.

St. John's Episcopal Preschool

Welcome to St. John's Episcopal School’s website. Whether you are a... St. John’s student, parent, graduate, teacher, or visitor, our website will give you a sense of who we are, what is happening around the school, and our mission. Founded in 1961 as an outreach of St. John's Episcopal Church, we are celebrating the 53rd year of St. John’s Episcopal School’s commitment “to graduate students of character and faith,” while offering a rigorous academic curriculum with a focus on character education. Affirming our religious heritage, we reach out to people of all faiths and backgrounds. I invite you to browse the website, learn more about our academic program, the arts and athletics, our global perspective, and our community of faith. Centered around a rich, research-based curriculum, St. John's is a traditional school with many strengths and offerings. In the long-established Episcopal tradition of education, "Students are encouraged to fulfill their unique potential through intellectual, moral, and spiritual challenge." From the very youngest students to our eighth-graders, we prepare each child for a successful future in high school and in life. From communication to mathematics, from our school community to our role in the global community, from technology to character education, a St. John’s education is focused on preparing our students for whatever the future might bring. Our youngest students learn aspects of Six Traits Writing which is cultivated and expanded upon in later years. Our oldest students apply themselves to earn spots on our service-learning trips and/or the middle school Model United Nations' experience in New York City or Washington, D.C. Character and faith continue to be idealistic pillars of the school. The H.E.R.O.E.S.™ Character Education Program gives common language and organizational structure to character development, while our Traits for Success provides guidance and instruction. Throughout, our child-centered program encourages our students to be active participants in their own education and offers leadership opportunities. The best way to get to know St. John’s Episcopal School is to experience it in person. Our students, parents, graduates, and our faculty and administration, all know that the atmosphere and spirit of St. John’s comes alive in the relationships and interactions that occur in the classrooms, the gymnasium, on the athletic fields and throughout the campus. I hope that you will visit St. John’s, learn about our educational programs, and experience the warmth and faithfulness of our community. Most sincerely, Thomas R. Stevens Head of School
