My son attends this school and he is doing excellent ever since I transferred him out of Glades Central High

This school is the worst decision you can make for your child. Some teachers are not certified, and most are sub-par. kid's have a tendency of becoming slackers and procrastinators. This school will also not provide the essentials needed after high school. I could tell you some horror stories of classmates of mine who are back home because they couldn't cut it in a college or university. The only reasons I'd suggest Glades Day School is to play a sport. Another good reason is, because it being in a small town, it's almost like a family. However, those two reasons shouldn't interfere with a child's education.

I've been going to Glades Day for 6yrs. I love the teachers and staff...the school provides a family like atmosphere. The extracurricular ativities are a great way to get involved in Gator pride.

My son has been attending for 3 years and this was the best thing we could have done for him. The class sizes & uniforms are great, not to mention the administration's overall fairness and the field trips are great to. He is much happier here than in public school

I have two sons who transferred to Glades Day during the 07-08 school year. They are in the 6th and 7th grades and are loving it! I literally feel like we have joined a family here at this school and love the fact that my children are here through high school!

My daughters attend Glades Day School and have for 5 years. The school is great. The teachers are for the most pretty good. If there is a problem with a teacher it is worked out with the up most consideration for the students. The school offers numerous extracurricular activities cheerleading, football, basketball, baseball and softball.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
