There is a reason families come from all over San Gabriel Valley to be part of the Gooden School’s nurturing, close-knit community.
Guided by our Episcopal identity, dedicated teachers and caring parents come together and participate in the shared purpose to educate our students to be productive, healthy and happy children today and responsible citizens tomorrow.
The Gooden School has a tradition of delivering an education that not only prepares students for life beyond middle school, but also recognizes that these years should be enjoyable and transformative.
From kindergarten through 8th grade, students benefit from a curriculum where they learn to read music and play instruments, engage in art and STEAM programs, study Latin and Spanish, compete in athletics and participate in community projects.
The Gooden School is a welcoming and inclusive community, underpinned by a philosophy that has guided us for nearly 50 years. Our students — and their diversity — are appreciated for who they are and who they want to be.
At Gooden, character is forged, futures framed, lifelong connections made and the lives of students, faculty and families are forever changed for the good.
We invite you to explore our school for your child and family.
