We love the teachers, office staff, principal, and the community. Our son is so happy at Glenview, he said to us the other day, 'I wish Glenview went all the way to college!'
Glenview is amazing. My son just started kindergarten and the parents are so involved - volunteering in the classroom, helping out in the garden and painting flats for the Halloween festival. There's read-a-thons, science day, and the children even compost at lunch. Glenview just started a produce stand every Tuesday to provide local organic fruits and veggies to the Glenview Elementary Community. The teachers are approachable and amazing with the children. My son's teacher called me on her lunch break today to respond to a question I had in a note I wrote this morning and sent to school. With budget cutbacks, our school is in desperate need of extra funds.
We love Glenview! The community is just amazing ... and by community, I mean the teachers, the administration and the parents. We're only in our second year at the school, and already we feel so much a part of the family. When so many people care so deeply about a place, it can only help to make the educational experience for our kids all that it can be. Money is nice, and lord knows schools can always use more, but you can't buy the spirit this school possesses.
Glenview is a great school because it has great teachers, students, office staff, custodians and a great principal. Glenview students have an extensive arts and music program. All three of my kids have gone to Glenview School.
Glenview has tremendous diversity, committed educators, a wonderful cohort of students and active, interested parents.
This school is a hidden gem! My son has attended Glenview for 2 years and absolutely loves it. There is great parent involvement and encouragement to volunteer in various areas; the teachers are terrific - the ones my son has had recognize each child is different and work with students all levels; the office office staff are patient, friendly and really care about the kids; and the principal is truly amazing - smart, dynamic and experienced! It is truly a community at Glenview and I am so glad that my son has been able to have a great experience (both academically and socially) here!
This is our child's second year at Glenview. We couldn't be happier. We have a very capable and dedicated principal and our child is blessed to have two excellent teachers in a row. Her kindergarten teacher prepared her so well, both academically, and socially for 1st grade. She flourishes and thrives in class. My husband and I college graduates and value education. We find our daughter not just learning everything she is supposed to learn at this age, she learns to be caring and responsible. She loves going to school where she has her good friends. We are very involved parents and we like what we see in school.
My son is a kindergardner at Glenview - he LOVES it, I LOVE it. I volunteer in class once a week, and can't stop smiling the entire time I am there. The kids are having a lot of fun and they are learning. We couldn't be happier.
This is my son's second year at Glenview and we are so happy with the school! He has had wonderful, caring teachers and is excelling in all areas. They have wonderful art, dance, music, & Spanish programs. Their afterschool program is also fabulous. I cannot say enough how assuring it is to be able to drop off your child every day and feel secure that he will be taken care of and treated well and have a great day!
We are proud parents of a Glenview student. We feel so lucky to have such a fantastic parent and community supported elementary as our neighborhood school. Thank you Glenview staff and parents for such a fantastic start to our childrens' school career.
My son is in first grade at Glenview. I just cannot say enough positive things about our experience with the school. Our son is blossoming intellectually, socially, and personally. His friends are from widely divergent backgrounds - the social stimulation this provides is unparalleled. The teachers are suberb, supported by an amazing principal. The school isn't perfect - but no school is. But we are thrilled!
Glenview School is providing my 2nd grader with strong reading and math skills, a strong and confident sense of self, a deep respect for diversity and community, and a chance to learn through music, art, dance, language, and science. It has strong and friendly administrative leadership and active parent involvment. It is a very well rounded school. I look forward too my second child begining Kindergarten in the fall.
My child finds this school very uhchallenging. They teach the same thing every grade. At this moment, my child is in 5th grade. Yes, I know it may be challenging for other kids. But I mean, they should at least have an advanced class or special programs or something. They also let kids gang up on other kids.
We are moving out of the area and I'm devastated at having to leave Glenview. We have had an excellent teacher in kindergarten this year. Mostly I've been delighted with the level of parental involvement. It seems clear that this school is going to continue to get better and better. The principal is just so supportive of everything we've wanted to do and I love the 'You-can-do-it!' speeches she gives the students. There is just such a spirit of encouragement from everyone there -- from the other parents to the office staff. I love the after-school staff; the dance teacher is AMAZING (my son thinks dancing is cool!); cannot enthuse enough about the librarian; we started a recycling/composting program and far from grumbling, the custodians thought it was a great idea. This place has really been my ideal: good schooling (my son is already reading) yet plenty diverse.
I am very please with Glenview. This is my child 2nd year there he is learning so much. I really like the environment glenview offers. Also their staff Mrs. Brown,Mrs.Patton and princple Mrs. Adkins is great she always smiling and always share her happiness with a hug. I just hoping I can find an Jr> High that is as great as Glenview. I a looking forward to seeing this school go to great height and depth. When you have a God fearing woman running the school you can't go wrong.. God Bless Mrs.Taylor
Glenview Elementary has far surpassed my expectations. I looked very hard for a school that would meet the curriculum standards that I wanted as well as have the openness of arts, music and extracurricular activities and Glenview does it all. The PTA is awesome and the available programs such as Oddyssey of the mind and the opportunities for before and afterschool language, arts and child care programs are above and beyond what most schools offer. So I guess it suffice's to say that I am very well pleased with Glenview Elementary and PTA, Principal Atkins, The Teachers and Staff; make every effort to make sure that both the Children and the parents stay very well taken care of. Hat's Off to Glenview Elementary!
My daughter just started at Glenview and we are so happy about everything there...the dedication of the parents, the principal's enthusiasm, the staff working in the front office, the fabulous teachers and the after-school program. Our daughter's teacher, Mr Granda, is creative and caring. Starting Kindergarten can be overwhelming for both the child and the parents and we have received a great amount of support from other parents there. We highly recommend Glenview!
Glenview is a wonderful school, with an increase in rankings this year and a very diverse student body. Lots of parent involvement and a talented staff.
Great school, great teachers, great parental involvement. The principle is appraochable and easy to work with. This school just keeps getting better and better.
My older son is entering 3rd grade this school year, and he is ready for summer to be over and to get back to his school. He is already thinking of the science project he wants to do and can't wait for the Readathon. What more can a parent want, but a child who is looking forward to school beginning? My younger son will be in kindergarten, and he is so exicted about going to Glenview with his brother. He can't wait for Sarah Science and chorus (two of the after school enrichment classes my older son takes.) Glenview parents, teachers, and staff work together to create a sense of community, to provide opportunities for kids to engage in their learning and have fun with it, and to have a sense of pride in their school. Our academic and arts education programs are strong which is great for all the kids.
