Good Shepherd School is located in beautiful Peace River, Alberta. We offer high quality E.C.S. to grade six programming in both English & French Immersion to approximately 450 students. The school is noted for its community-centered approach to working with children and their families, with a strong Catholic focus. Good Shepherd has the reputation as being a "loving, caring & sharing" family community. Our dedicated staff is experienced and innovative. Above all, the school is noted for its exceptional "Christ-like" atmosphere--in our Chapel, in the hallways and classrooms, where religious displays are prominent and celebrations are frequent, but, most of all, at morning assembly, where prayer, song and laughter create a "family" atmosphere. Peace River is a scenic, vibrant, urban centre in Alberta's northwest and is home to over 6,000 residents. The community is situated in the Peace River Valley and straddles the banks of the mighty Peace River. The town is within a five hours’ drive north of Edmonton and two hours northeast of Grande Prairie and is serviced with air, rail and bus links. Peace River provides a wide range of services to the surrounding areas. Among these is an impressive combination of businesses including locally owned downtown stores and restaurants, as well as national and international retailers. In October, Peace River was awarded the 'Cultureville 2011' title in the prestigious competition that celebrates CBC's 75th Anniversary and Alberta Art Days.
