creative energetic principle and caring community of involved teachers and parents.
The parents have turned the school around and the energy and involvement on making it a wonderful place for the students is apparent!
Our school is amazing! From community involvement, to wonderful teachers, to a special commitment to the arts in these trying times, we truly have a unique school.
Great teachers and staff, fabulous play areas, interesting solar power project, wonderful extra activities offered, georgeous garden with program and produce stand, and friendly parents.
Glenview is progressive, creative, and yet keeps doing better and better on state tests. It is a strong part of our community and the children are thriving. Thanks, Glenview!
Parent involvement, teacher dedication, programs like recycling, compost, gardening, and selling fresh vegetables to raise funds.
I love Glenview Elementary because my daughter is stimulated and engaged in school. I see her advancements on a daily basis. I am also impressed that in light of the school budget cuts, that between the principal, school staff and the highly motivated parents, the school is continuing to offer a variety of enrichment activities. Glenview is not just a school but a community where children learn to succeed.
I could not ask for a better school for my kids. It is a fantastic combination of a great principal, fantastic teachers, amazing students, and caring parents. We are entering year 4 at the school and I am continually grateful for the education and experience my children are receiving. Go Griffin!
We love love love our school! Such a great mix of inspiring teachers, supportive staff, and amazing parents. The kids are the winners at Glenview, as is the community and neighborhood. Yay Glenview!
Glenview has the best parent/teacher population that I could ever ask for. It has improved by leaps and bounds every year. The kids love it here as well as the teachers
The diversity of the student body, involved parents and an active PTA, and the dedicated, caring staff and a principal who is committed to making sure the arts are part of the student's lives no matter what our budget make this school a true gem. Plus, I live next door and both my kids attend. You can't get any luckier than that.
Glenview is very culturally diverse and there is a ton of parent participation. Furthermore, the faculty is the best!
Glenview has a great, dedicated staff of teachers and administrators and an active, involved group of parents. Everyone works together to promote a terrific learning environment for the kids. We love our school!
I love Glenview Elementary because it is diverse and welcoming. The staff is wonderful, the children are bright and the community stands strong as one!
The teachers, the principal, the staff, the students and the parents. It is a true melting pot. Everyone gives their best and it shows in the pride that comes from all who have a Glenview experience. Just can't hide that Glenview pride!!!
The parents involvement is phenomenal, the teachers and staff are engaged and my kids love to go there every morning.
Glenview Elementary is a vibrant school, where anyone walking through the classrooms and play yard would immediately feel the vibe of happy children and a dynamic teaching and support staff. In the past few years, our neighborhood school has improved in student achievement, neighborhood commitment, and community involvement. Within four years, Glenview families have purchased and built a state-of-the-art play structure, re-opened the school library staffed by a certified librarian, put computers in every classroom, grown an edible garden, landscaped the school gardens, had the school painted, established a schoolwide composting program, reached out to the community as THE neighborhood elementary school to attend, among many other home-grown, parent-initiated improvements. All of this is possible because we are part of a school whose leadership, teachers and support staff share a common goal with the parents to make Glenview Elementary a great school.
Glenview's faculty, staff and families are committed to bringing the best education and artistic opportunities to the kids of Oakland. Every day my daughter comes home having learned something new, while have a great time too.
We love our school because it is such a unique, warm, and loving community. The teachers are very professional, dedicated, friendly, and open to students and families. They will work with you so that your child can be successful. The principal has a strong commitment to arts programming and ensures that students receive some kind of art-related class on a weekly basis, such as dance, drama, painting, etc., and the PTA and general parent community is awesome. Our school is very demographically diverse, and yet the kids and families mix well and become friends. Our PTA has brought in a teaching garden, a Tuesday afterschool farmer's market, a solar panel for teaching, among many other activities. I can't say enough how happy to have had my older son attend K-5 there and now my younger, who is a 4th grader.
