Our daughter is in 6th grade and she has had a fantastic experience this year at Glenridge. The orchestra teacher is outstanding and the rest of the teaching staff is very helpful and caring to the students. The only complaint that I have is that there are no lockers so the kids have to carry all of their belongings around in their backpacks all day. I am shocked by some of the previous reviews because there have been no lockdowns or weapons at school since she has been there.

I am an alumni of GMS and I have to say things have really declined since I've been there. There are many lockdowns due to students bringing weapons to school. The school is cliquey and there seems to be a problem with bullying. The IB program is the only salvation a from an otherwise mediocre schoo; the problem is that too many children are allowed in the IB "honors" program who don't deserve to be there. In my opinion the only good part about GMS is the arts dept. Brian Sullivan is an amazing band teacher and I had him for all 3 years at Glenridge and he still recognizes me in public.

The rules of bullying are making to help the bully in this school. If there are no witnesses, they do nothing, the children are afraid to speak. That is why they have so many problems of weapons. It is terrible! I have no idea how it is A class.

This school is labelled an IB school, but you will find that many teachers are not educated on how to teach and IB curriculum, There are very weak teachers here in the math department, and they do not get replaced. The academics are watered down in the honors classes and too many average students are accepted to these classes. Would not recommend.

i go to this school and last year i would say i liked it because the school whas organized and well kept. but being a 7th grader, dealing with all the new changes is a BIG problem. to me this year the school seems less organized. they changed the lunch room rules like 3 times this year and some of the teachers there seem like there here only for the money. like they dont have eny heart in there job.sure there are some teachers i had that did care (ms.Bonhgen and Ms.caceras) but the 8 periods completly messed up the whole school. i im now transfering out of this school by chose. sure i will miss some teachers but i im leaving no regrets. good bye glenridge. hope u get better when im back in Feb.!!!!!!!

i like this schol because of the academic progress a child can make, but there seems to be a bully problem in this school and lake of supervision. My son has been bullied multiple times with no one to see what is going on. I am very upset at the fact the school has in place a 'so called' program for bullies, but i really do not see it!



- a
Glenridge has a dedicated staff who teach support and encourage every child who attends the school. The staff have made parents feel an important part in their childs education. Way to go Lions
