Apple Glen is a wonderful school with a dedicated and engaging staff. I initially had concerns about Arkansas schools in general prior to moving to NWA, but any and all of those concerns are gone. The Bentonville School District is truly one of the best in the state! Apple Glen also has one of the BEST PTO's I've ever seen. Creative and supportive of their school!

Apple Glen is an amazing school full of loving, energetic, and dependable staff. We have been so lucky that both of our kids have attended Apple Glen since kindergarten. With each teacher my kids have had the love for learning and knowledge grow within them.

My school has great teachers. They really care about our kids. They have an excellent Response to Intervention program that keeps kids from falling through the cracks.

My youngest son attended this school, and now my grandchild attends this school. It has high expectations, yet caring compassionate teachers who do their best to help all children.

I believe that our school strives to be a great school. The teachers all really care about the children. I have seen first hand the hurt that the teacher feels when they have a new student that has not received the proper building blocks to succeed in that grade and the extra help that goes into pulling that child up to where they need to be. Our parent involvement is down from previous years with the zoning going into effect but, I believe that we are still an excellent school that is building great self esteem and striving for academic excellence.

We have been at this school for two years now. We love it! My daughter's teacher is fabulous, and is always e-mailing me with her progress. She has taken a personal interest in her, and is always excited to see her progress. The school got a new principal this year, and we are very excited about the changes that we have seen so far. It is so nice to be at a school where you know that the people who work there actually care about your child, and not just about their paycheck.

I just want to let all the parents out there that Apple Glen is a very excellent school, this school has all wonderful teachers. And is very clean. It also has good structure and organization. My child has attended Apple Glen since he was in kindergarten and so far we have been very blessed by them.
