This school is very clicky and it's been difficult for our family to make friends with the existing group. The class sizes are very large and children do not receive enough individual attention. There are at least several teachers at the school that I know of that actively bully the children and parents.
I have two children at Glenview, my children are very happy, the teachers are fantastic, the staff members ,the principal, we like everything. We are like a parents, very involve in the school, make the school like second home for my children. We are very happy. Antonia
My daughter started here in kindergarten, and is now entering 5th grade. Every teacher she has had has been engaging and attentive. I wasn't expecting the high level of education that she is getting from this public school, and we couldn't be happier. There is strong parental involvement; a school garden, Halloween festival, book fair, movie nights, and more. The school is attractive and very clean. We love it!
this is a great local school that provides a strong community for the glenview area. I think that lots of parents are happy with this school.
Exceeded my expectations of a neighborhood public school within the OUSD system. We have a truly gifted principal, the teachers are strong, and the parents and families are welcoming, involved and enthusiastic about constantly improving the school community. Best of all, this is truly a diverse school - ethnically, socioeconomically, and also in terms of family composition. This is a gem of a public school.
The school has a great sense of community. A variety of afterschool programs and it's safe.
Local community feel. Green interest. Diversity. On site well-balanced after care. Experienced staff. Clean well cared for and safe facility. Walking distance from my home.
We have an awesome principle, great teachers & staff. They all really care about the children and the children adore them as well. Parents are very active in the school.
A terrific school community all around - teachers, staff, parents and kids. Lots of creative ideas and enthusiasm for helping students grow and thrive.
Great Principal & staff, amazing teachers who care, and incredibly motivated parents who raise money to enrich our school programs and the site.
Great parent involvement through pta. Kids love their school and teachers. We are glad to be a part.
We have been thrilled with the principal Ms. Atkins and the school's continued support of the arts, music and visual, as well as the parents who are so focused and giving!
Glenview's principal, staff and teachers are clearly committed to the success of every student. The staff provides an environment that fosters confidence in ones ability to succeed...a foundation for success which lasts a lifetime. Glenview has been like a seconed family to my daughter.
A racially and socio-economically diverse school w/ great test scores in Oakland. A wonderful group of teachers united by an outstanding principal! Every day that I take my daughter I feel as though I've won the lottery!
We love the entire staff at this school especially the principal Ms. Atkins
Glenview has concerned parents that come together regularly to work on the school for their children's sake. great produce stand on Tuesdays, garden projects, arts and education.
I love Glenview Elementary because of the extraordinary support and commitment to our children from the parents and the broader community. As a new family in the school, we already feel extremely connected. From the improved play yard to the wonderful garden to the classroom volunteers, Glenview exemplifies community involvement. I am proud to be a part of such a wonderful school.
They have a reduced price produce stand so you can buy fruits and vegetables when you pick up your children, an amazing garden, playground and lots of offerings all because of the very active PTA!!
I love Glenview Elementary. It's a very friendly school with wonderful, caring teachers, very community conscious and committed to the children.
