There has been annual changes in leadership in the 3 years I've been at Glenmount. While among the best in the City it still has a way to go. Older students are out of control and the exodus at the end of the day is a nightmare. On a brighter note, the lower school teachers are outstanding. I have a 1st and second grader who both started at Glenmount in pre-K. Unfortuantely both pre-K teachers have been replaced so I can't vouch for the new teachers. However, the educational components at the lower level are excellent. Both of my kids were reading before Christmas of kindergarten. In addition, the PTO was revived a few years ago and has a growing presence at the school. We will probably stay at Glenmount thru 3rd grade.

I have 2 children who go to this school. I agree that there is no leadership at all. The principal is a joke. He really does not know how to deal with children. However alot of the teachers are very good. These children need disapline,and alot of these teachers know it. The children all know which teachers won't take any fooling around. The trouble is every time the teachers send a child to the office,it does no good because,as I said,the principal does nothing and the kids know that to. The leadership needs to change. Spend less time worring about the attendance and more time on teaching and helping the kids.

I was very disapointed in the school. Every time I was in the school there were kids woundering the halls,cursing,running pushing the smaller one out of the way and they didn't even belong in that area. I have to agree who's bright idea was it to combine elementary and middle school and think there wouldn't be a problem. It is too crowded. no disaplain no organization at all.

My children are now attending Glenmount Elementary Middle school . Each and every time that I visit my childs school it is in a total up roar, children fighting, cursing, crying,and smoking cigarettes in the hallway. My children are afraid to go to school. They are constantly being bullied by older kids. Who's bright idea was it to combined elementary-middle school age children together in one school? Especially with a school who lacks discipline, activities, and education. Supervision are aware of all the problems that occur and are not doing anything to provide a healthy envirnoment for the kids who want to learn. Administration does not want to do their job. They need people who are willing to do their job and are not afraid or turn their heads to the things that are occuring. Children run the school not the administration. What happen to P.T.A. meetings?

This school may not be one of the best, but I can tell you that I'm proud of it. A lot of people are antagonists, (the majority of which are parents and administrators), and are doubtful of the tutors, daily instruction, as well as the ability of the pupils attending Glenmount. But I'll have you know that those kids do real work in the classroom. If you are a visitor or spectator, then that's all you are. You must be with these extraordinary people every day to pay full witness to their capabilities. They have brains, not just street smarts--and the qualities one requires to be an eager learner. It may be evident that they can be very rambunctious, but who doesn't horse around when you're a kid? If people want their pupils to succeed, then why not believe in them before we criticize them? Just dig a little deeper.

Teacher have no control in class room. children out of there set, I saw children throw books out of the window. Secretary eating her lunch at the front desk in stead of the teacher lunch room. phone line stay busy very hard to get through during the day hours. when their a problem the teaher or the prinpcipal don't get back to you the next day or three days. they have very unprofessional staff as far as teacher.

I think the school needs a major overhaul. Too much time is spent disciplining the children and not enough time is spent on education!

I think that we need a new principal and staff. The children at Glenmount are ruling over the teachers. They should get a teaching staff that can handle the children. I know a lot of this starts at home but if the parents aren't responding and helping then we need to get the problem children out of the school and send them to an alternative school like Baltimore County does. That way the children who want to learn at Glenmount can!

I think that this school needs better leadership. It also needs teachers that take the time to talk to children instead of screaming at them in front of the other children or whoever is around.They don't have the patience to be the kind of teachers they should be. As far as i'm concerned there are only 4 really good teachers at this school.They also have no activities or any kind of sports for the children. No recess,and most of the time they don't get to eat lunch. The city needs to take a better look at this school.

Glenmount is OK. I think it could be a lot better. However, I think the lack of funding for Public Schools plays a major factor in its' short commings. Some of the teachers are really good, but are sometimes limited in what they would like to teach. When test time comes they are reinforcing only what is on the test for days or even weeks at a time. I feel that if they would have tought it when or how it should have been, there would be less need for weeks of reinforcement. To some this up I would say, if I could afford for my children to be in a private school they would be there. In the meantime, I work with them at home to assist the teacher in any way I can.
