I personally went to this school myself, I'm now In high school 11th grade to be exact I have. 4.0 next year I'm applying to a university. this school was a wonderful experience for me as a child I made a lot of good lifelong friends who I keep in touch with to this day in fact both of my current best friends went to gledhill with me I think it's been 11 years since we have been friends. The teachers always showed compassion and in fact when I needed to do my community service for 8th grade (mandatory to graduate) I came back to Holmes to give back to the community that gave me the childhood I know and love, in fact even without the school giving me mandatory community service I would have found any excuses to go back and visit my old teachers and after school coaches. Mostly because I was a rebel in elementary school the kind of kid with bad grades and I wanted to show my teachers that their constant compassion paid off. I know that this school only has 4 stars but I give it 5 any child that works hard and gives it their best well do great in this school and make lifelong memories too. And if you teach at gledhill feel blessed and know your work truly counts a lifetime here,

This is a nice and friendly neighborhood school. My son's teacher is great and the Principal, Mr. Dyen greets the kids in front of the school when they arrive in the morning. I feel that the staff cares and I like how seriously the Principal takes safety issues.

My son is finishing up his second year of preschool. His teacher, Miss Ashley, has been AMAZING!!!! She really takes in interest in her students. My son had an IEP for speech therapy. He is now tested out. She really has gone above and beyond! The two aides (Miss A. and Miss Carla) have also been amazing. I just hope my son's teacher for kinder is as amazing as she is.

The staff in the front office is not helpful. The principal is unaproachable and unprofessional. Most of the teachers are ok. I would not reccommend this school.

I absolutely LOVE this school! I have had several children attend this school and know they would not have had the same opportunites anywhere else. The Principal is AMAZING and makes the children her priority. The teachers are also WONDERFUL, they have always involved us in our children's academic life. I have always felt welcome by the Principal, teachers and staff. I couldn't have asked for a better school for my kids.

The teachers are overworked and the Principal needs to be replaced she is overbearing and unapproachable. She constantly stresses everyone out about test scores. She doesn't have the childrens best intrest in mind. The school security is a joke and constantly embrasses the children that are minutes late in the morning. Their is no structure for the drop off and pick and defintely it is an accident waiting to happen. There is little no supervision for the kids while there on the playground. The school creates a violent atmosphere by the Principal's look away policy on handling violent children. I do not trust the care of my child at this school yet she has to attend there. Be aware!

Gledhill rocks! I have a son who graduated from this school, his first grade teacher saw his potential in arts and he is a great artist now, the office staff is extremely friendly and always willing to help, their playground has been updated it, they now have a soccer field and brand new classrooms, my son absolutely loved all his magnet teachers, and now my daughter is in 1st grade enjoying the wisdom of the same 1st grade teacher, I do have to say that the current principal is abrasive and seems unfriendly sometimes but I believe that beyond that she is doing a great job!

Overall the school is pretty good. One thing that I would like more from this scholl having a gifted child is nore activities to stimulate them. I would also like some more improvements done to this school. Such as new pavement and plant trees for shade. One of the things I think should be done first is updating the bathrooms. I went to this school when I was a child. The restrooms are exactly the same as they were when I went there 20 years ago.

The school is great in academics unfortunately it does not aim to make parents feel welcome. The office staff makes life very unpleasant for any visitor.
