My 2nd grade son LOVES this school. It helps to grow your child academically, but not pushing them so hard to make them dislike school. Before every summer ends, my son can't wait to get back to this school to study and hang out with his friends. I wouldn't move him to any other school.
Glenmoor Elementary is a gem of a school located within a wonderful community in Fremont, CA. Parent involvement and PTA is paramount and because of their generous commitment of time and energy many programs such as Glenmoor Musical Theater, Gold Rush Days, Wildcats on the Run, Olympic Day, Science Night, and many more are possible. This year we are "Going Green" and instituting sustainable recycling programs to generate cash for trash at our school and this wouldn't be possible without the efforts of the administration, teachers, students and parents. The principal is amazing with innovative ideas and he plays a mean game of 4 square with the kids. We feel so fortunate to be a part of this Great School!!
My son has attended Glenmoor Elementary since Kindergarten and he is now in fourth grade. This school has improved quite a bit since he first started and keeps getting better. In 2012, Glenmoor was presented the California Distinguished School Award. The school is a high performance school with students from diverse socio-economic and racial backgrounds. Glenmoor has a strong PTA with a lot of parent involvement. The teachers and staff are amazing. Glenmoor's new principal, Mr. Benevides, is very dedicated to the students and is currently bringing many after school programs to the school. Glenmoor is a great school in a great neighborhood!
Many good teachers have left Glenmoor because of the principal's lack of support and her disrespectful attitude toward them. The principal is an ineffective administator with a hostility against anyone who may disagree with her and will retaliate against them. The reputation of this school will continue to decline under the leadership of this principal.
THANK YOU GLENMOOR FOR THE GREAT YEARS MY KIDS HAD AT THE SCHOOL...THIS IS THE BEST ELEMENTARY SCHOOL PEOPLE IN FREMONT CAN SEND THEIR KIDS FOR LEARNING...TEACHERS ARE GREAT...THE PRINCIPAL IS ALWAYS THERE FOR THE STUDENTS..IS FULL OF FUN ACTIVITIES BETWEEN TEACHERS,PARENTS AND STUDENTS...EVERYTHING IN THIS SCHOOL IS JUST GREAT....WE ARE REALLY MISSING BEEN THERE...IF WE GET TO GO BACK TO CALIFORNIA BE SURE I WILL BE LIVING CLOSE TO GLENMOOR TO GET MY KIDS WITH THE BEST TEACHERS EVER!!.
I love Glenmoor Elementary School because the teachers really care about each and every student. The teachers go above and beyond to make sure that every child lives up to their highest potential. Also, the annual school musical is a highlight of the school year which many children audition for and, even though some plays call for only a certain number of parts, every child is given a part so as not to disappoint any one child. Glenmoor Elementary School is truly one of the best elementary, if not THE best elementary school in Fremont!
this is just a outstanding, awesome,exellent, phenominal, cool, really good, great school
We were not sure how good the school was before our daughter started at this school. But are happy now that she's there. She loves her school and her teacher, Mrs Smith is the best! There is a good mix of all ethnicities and skill levels of the kids. Parents take a very active role in the school PTA and activites at the class, which is nice. This is not among the top API school in Fremont, but we believe the teacher and school lay emphasis on the over-all development of the child. As always parental involvement in the school and in the activities of the child is very essential to the child's progress.
Both my kids go to Glenmoor. I am so amazed by so many different activities they both can get involved: Band, Music, Chorus, Play, Sports. Parent involvement is 100%. From the way they pick up the kids from drop zone, to arranging numerous different activities in the school year, this is an awesome place for the kids to be. I am so proud that my kids go to Glenmoor. All teachers are well experienced, dedicated and fully involved in kids development.
My son is currently in 1st grade in R-23, Ms. Yen's class. Her commitment and dedication is phenomenal. She has taken the time to get to know how my child 'ticks' and she has been able to bring out the best in him. She is truly a gift! All schools should have more teachers as exemplary as Ms.Yen.
I have been extremely happy with Glenmoor elementary. The teachers are very involved and treat children on a 1:1 basis, recognizing each child's strengths and improving on their other areas. The scores have increased consistently and it is very close to 900 now and hence in a very competitive position with the other top rated schools in the Fremont school district. Highly recommend Glenmoor elementary for a well rounded program. I am impressed with the different activities and efforts to improve technology - i.e science lab, computers in class, etc..
Just want to say that I'am very happy with my daugthers teacher as well as the staff.You can really feel that they care about your kids grades and they development.A+
Wow, teachers and parents are committed here. High academic standards, but kids are engaged and learn by doing. But it's the musical theater program that really makes this school shine every spring, often 50+ kids involved, full on musical production, volunteers from staff and PTA, plus backstage support from students.
This is an excellent school to work for and there are lots of nice kids and parents who are involved in helping the children and the teachers.
Glenmoor is a great school. My daughter is in the 3rd grade and has attended since kindergarten. This school is very lucky to have dedicated staff, committed parents and a Principal who cares about the well being of our kids. We have a state of the art computer lab and a science lab that allows students to expand on their studies. The school offers students a Musical Theater program that allows students to perform in a play once a year. It is run by Teachers and Parent volunteers. We have a boys and girls basketball team and a nice library.
Our 6 year old went to Glenmoor for the 1st grade (KG was done at Kindercare). She had an extremely professional class teacher. I was also impressed by the staff's indepth knowledge and experience. Positive feedback: 1. Children want to go to school (They enjoy it). 2. Focus is on healthy/fun environment resulting in child's growth ~ ability to absorb more. 3. Excellent community. Very involved parents. What could be better: 1. More homework. 2. Direct focus on growth (v/s let them pick up).
Although my daughter is overlooaded to Glenmoor from Forest Park, I guess she is not missing much. She has learned exceptionally well here and is no way behind in any area. Although I would love to see her in Forest Park but I don't mind if she continues at Glenmoor. She has exceeded my expectation in almost all category.
My children started at Glenmoor as Kindergartners and are now 1st and 3rd graders. I am very pleased that this is our neighborhood school. The teachers are very competent and give more time and energy than required. The parent involvement is incredible. My kids love the Science, Computer and Music extras. Glenmoor also offers a choir, a musical play, a basketball team, a band, and, via the P.T.A. a Grandparents Day, Health & Safety Fair, a carnival, assemblies, extra money to classes, among other things. The education is tops. They have learned more than I expected at their ages. In fact, a large group have come over from a local private school and were actually behind academically. It's true I don't have any school to compare to, but I'm glad our neighborhood school is Glenmoor. and yes, it is easier to walk a few blocks than to drive.
I believe Glenmoor Elementary has a great principle who interacts with the children and parents in a very professional manner. Many of the teachers are excellent for the average or above student, however, most are lacking in an understanding of how to deal with special needs children, especially those with ADD/ADHD. In my child's class, at least 2 out of 30 children had ADHD in grade 4 and 5 and no special assistance was provided. Also the school in not enclosed by a fence which presents a security problem. Extra curricular activities include sports, band, school plays, talent show, and a choral group, however, these activities have been denied to students as a disciplinary measure. The campus is in a nice neighborhood, but was designed at a time when children walked to school and is, therefore, difficult to access closely by car. Traffic jams result. Honest overall Rating C-.
