Glenwood communtiy schools are awesome! I have daughters that attend both of the elementary schools and the middle school. The teachers and staff go above and beyond what is expected of them and give alot of one-on-one time to the students and parents.

Great school. My son has really thrived in the Glenwood Middle School both academically and in sports. I can't say enough about the dedication of the teachers.

This school has a new principal and a new outlook. The school will be moving into a new building next year & I am excited about the direction of this school.

A great school with poor leadership. New principle in 2005-2006 school year ran school into the ground. Teachers are great and seem to care about the kids.
