My son already went through Glenn's Valley and he always had wonderful teachers. My daughter is now in 5th grade and still loves to go to school everyday. She has had different teachers than my son and I feel she has had a wonderful education there. This school does a fabulous job preparing kids for Middle School.
Glenns Valley is a very good school. They recognize when your child is struggling and automatically enter them into one of their programs. They work with my child one on one and it has really helped her.
I love this school. My grandparents went to this school, my parents went, I went, and now my daughter attends here. The parents are so involved with the kiddos here and the majority of the teachers truly care. I do wish the administration was a little more attentive, but otherwise I would absolutely recommend this school.
My child is in Mrs. May's 4th grade class. What an awesome teacher! Mrs. May is so devoted to teaching, challenging when needed, and stimulating the childrens' interest and abilities on an individual level. She is obviously a talented and gifted teacher who hopes to share her love of knowledge with her class. Mrs. May is the teacher of a lifetime and I'm sure my child will have fond memories of the 4th grade.
My daughter has completed first grade with Mrs. Johnson this year and it was the best experience. She had a wonderful year in Kindergarden as well. We turned down Rosa Parks to stay at Glenn's Valley because of the teachers, staff, and parents. It truly is a wonderful school system.
My son loves Glenns Valley and therefore I love it! 3rd grade teacher Mrs. Wolfe is the best, thank you for making my child feel welcome
We moved into this district at the beginning of the school year and I absolutely love this school. My son has Asperger's/ADHD and his general education teacher, special education teacher, and the principal have worked so hard with him. I truly appreciate what they have been able to accomplish within just one year, and I look forward to the two more years he has left.
I am so proud of the hard work Mrs Osborne and her staff have done to make G V a school that is so connected to the community.The tower at G V is a great example of the hard work the school has done to keep the family values and the history of the founders of G V alive.Not many schools in Marion county can go back to the original history of the school along with the legacy of families who supported the school.Thanks to Mrs Osbornes hard work in researching the schools history and getting the tower created by work from the G V students to stand as a marker to the values this school has represented over the years.
There is a positive pervasive spirit that begins with the prinicipal, Mrs. Osborne and radiates throughout this wonderful school! We could not imagine using our tax dollars for a better purpose than to support this outstanding school.
the teachers are very wonderful with the kids, teach them family values. very pleasant people.
Glenns Valley has an amazing, caring staff! I am proud to be a part of the Glenns Valley Family!!
Glenns Valley is a great school with great teachers, support staff, and parents! I am very proud to be at Glenns Valley!
I have had four children in Glenn's Valley and I love it! While many children in my neighborhood opted for the new charger school in the neighborhood, I stuck with GV because they have been so awesome I had no reason to leave. My kids' teachers are always concerned and involved. They communicate well with me, and the principal and support staff have always been more than supportive. I love GV!
Glenns Valley has some amazing teachers and support staff. I am very proud to say that my kids attned Glenns Valley.
My 2nd grader was diagnosed on the autism spectrum before he was enrolled in preschool at Glenns Valley. They helped us so much - with transportation, full day Kindergarted at no charge to me, etc. He has thrived! The principal and the teachers are wonderful. I can't say enough great things about Glenns Valley!
Where you involved w/the school?? example-room mom, PTA, lunch w/your children? In order for the teachers to get to know you, you need to be involved w/the children and their class room. As far as the Spanish, I could not disagree more, this is a element. school...art is a form of communication and expanding their brains to learn more...they can take Spanish at the middle school...we live in America...as long as their english is ok, let kids be kids!
I love this school, both of my kids have done very well. The teacher and student interaction is GREAT from what I see. As for the principal I believe she does a wonderful job, she steps in when needed and I think it's a good sign meaning that she let's the teachers and instructors do their jobs. The assistant principal does a great job as well. I am very pleased to have my kids there. After all I was an EAGLE as well!!
Unfortunately, I decided I had to send my children elsewhere. I was very disappointed with the leadership of Glenns Valley. While the principal was very attentive during discussions, no problems were ever resolved. There are some teachers who seem to be working toward the benefit of the children, but for the most part it seems like an us against them situation.
I agree that the full-day kindergarten program is awesome! I have a son in kindergarten and a daughter in the 5th grade. My son is being challenged by his teacher & loves the school. My daughter was a straight 'A' student the entire time! I think the grading scale prepares the student for the middle school level. I have heard that Glenn's Valley's students are the most prepared kids in the district when they start 6th grade. There was a boy that was picking on my daughter on the bus & I got immediate results from the top 3 people in charge. I am not concerned with the school not teaching foreign language, because they will learn it in middle & high schools.
I agree that the full-day kindergarten program is awesome. This is our first experience at Glenns Valley, and I am very impressed. The teacher is wonderful and so good with the kids. I have another daughter in 4th grade, and this is her first year there and probably her last. Maybe it's mostly due to the age of the kids, but there have been numerous discipline issues, and my daughter is very frustrated with this. I think the teachers have to spend a significant amount of time trying to control the class vs. instruction, and I'm worried that my daughter is falling behind. Earlier this year, a field trip was cancelled because of the poor behavior of a few students. There were other field trips that were talked about during Back to school night that sounded great, but I haven't heard anything about them, with the exception of one, since.
