Glenwood Primary School has been a great experience for my child. I am happy to know he his getting the fundamentals he needs with such a great supportive staff. We have a dedicated principal that provides our children with a safe environment. I know he is receiving the education he needs from more than qualified teachers without the cost of private school. I am very pleased with Glenwood!

I love Glenwood school!!! My son went here and now my grandson is going here. The teachers here are awesome. Great community and great school.

This is the very best school we could have put our son in. The staff is super friendly and hard working! Our son has learned so much this year!! I am amazed and truly appreciative at the concern for the students these teachers show. Outside of school, they support the kids by attending their games and other activities

This is my child's first year at Glenwood and was excited based on reviews. However, once at the school we have to say that the staff is not very friendly. Particularly the principal!!!! I am very dissatisfied.

I absolutely love that my daughter has the opportunity to attend Glenwood Primary school!! I loved this school as a child and she does now. Thea teachers and principals are amazing for everything they do. This school goes above and beyond all expectations i've ever had!! My daughter's teacher for the 2007-2008 school year (Mr. Coffman) was incredible!! I wish every child could have a teacher like him in their lifetime! You always hear stories about how 'that one teacher changed my life... ;' this school is full of those teachers!!!

I attended Glenwood as a child and now my child has the opportunity to attend school there as well. My daughter loves the atmosphere, social environment and her teacher! We cannot speak highly enough of her teacher from this past year, Lana Ogle! She was always communicating with us, making us aware of any issues, and most importantly loving and caring for our child while she was away from us. We are so happy that our children will be able to grow and learn in this wonderful school! Glenwood Primary, the teachers and principals, have a lot to offer to each student and parent.

My child and I loved this school. We are looking forward to moving on next year but are sadden by having to leave Glenwood. The teachers are very helpful and are willing to make sure your child succeeds while at Glenwood.

My child and I loved Glenwood. We were VERY upset when we had to leave. They were very supportive in everything that my child did. When you walk through the doors you get a feeling of a close knit family. I loved the teachers, the counselor(Mrs. Ball) and the principal(Mrs. Childs) and so did my child. If we ever had a problem I knew we could go to them with it. I would recommend this school to ANYONE.

This school has been a very big disappointment to me. The school is probably ok for most children, but if the child has any special needs you can not get the support that you and your child needs from the teacher or the principal. I realize the teacher has a lot of responsibilities, but I think the teacher should inform the parent of any situation that is going on with your child in the classroom. When a principal is inform about certain situations they need to handle it the correct way and try to deal with the situation with the parents help as a team. I can only recommend this school to patents that have children without special needs.
