Our academic performance index score (API) increased 25 points this year. Our API is currently 802. In the past four years, Glen Oak has implemented several new programs to improve student achievement and the school's culture. These are: Thinking Maps, Write From the Beginning, Enterprise Accelerated Reader, Accelerated Math, Standards Plus, Excellent Eagles, Character Counts, newly adopted art, music, p.e., social studies, science, and math core curriculum programs. We installed a brand new computer lab in the summer of 2007. This year every classroom received a document camera and LCD projector. These are used to project resources from the internet as well as for teachers to model during their direct instruction lessons. Our school is focused on improving the academic achievement of all students as well as helping each student to grow socially and emotionally. We work with students and their families as a collaborative team. At Glen Oak, we teach students, not subjects. Our students are excellent eagles who soar to excellence!
