I am sad to say that Glenmount Elementary/ Middle School would receive a Fail rating in this area. I specifically sought out the resource person with conecrns for my grandson . She reported (in December, 2013) that she had not started intervention , hands-on support yet for his needs. She wrote the student's name and politely assured me that she would be in touch and that my grandson would be at the top of her starting list. I learned that she did share my concerns with his 2nd grade teacher.
2nd quarter ( 2014) is starting, and I have no further feedback. My grandson has a U in conduct in every class. I simply would like tools to help channel his inappropriate acting out behaviors that could lead to bullying. Please help.
THIS SCHOOL HAS GREATLY IMPROVED WITH THE NEW ADMINISTRTION. I AM DELIGHTED TO SEE THE PROGRESS.
im a student here and i dont like this school but its the only one i can go to. kids walk out when mad and they are also told not to the kidsget into fight and the office just supsepnds kids are rude some teachers dont do their job the kids r destoryers the do not listen the atutorium is a mess its not a school with a lot of money and i do not recommend this school -a student
I was really pleased with the elementary side of this school. Teachers were good administrative support was good. The middle school is not as good. The students attending and their parents bare a lot of responsibility for this. I will be doing everything I can to take my kids out of the middle school next year. the combined format is not the best thing either. Teachers need to be able to either discipline or remove unruly students. very few good teachers and administrative staff at the middle school level. Their job is made more difficult by the disrespectful students who don't understand the importance of their education. - Pat
the school is not very good the principle doesnt do anything to help for the school all her arrens she makes the vice principle do it or secritary or nurse so i just think she should be fired because she is never around and when she is she doesnt do anything either
There are good efforts being made at this school by teachers. However there is not enough parental support school leadership. There is not enough prior notification on when PTO meetings are held. There are no hall monitors at this school and security is an issue. The school leaders are never around and the pretty much non-existant. We go to this school twice daily and have only seen both a handful of times. There are no extracurricular activities at this school. Parents are supposed to be involved in deciding where the school budget is spent, however we have yet to receive any imformation on this. We have received fundrasers, bake sales, and other stuff to sell but there is NO information on what proceeds go to. The main issues with this school have to do with its leadership. If the leadership assigned to this school was involved on a daily basis I believe these issues would and could be resolved.
This used to be a real school; now it's pre-justice system day care!
i love this school my kids went there and had a great time.there werent any racial things said or done to my kids.they enjoyed it from 3rd grade and up.
I can not stand to send my middle school child to this school. I feel bad for the teachers and what they have to go through. The kids there are horrible. I watched my daughters class today. The kids did not stay in sits, their lauagage is terribe, they have no respect. I am trying to find away to get my daugther out of there. My second child just started Pre-K her teacher is great. The middle school I just can t get over it.
I thought this school was an axcellent school until I enrolled my child there. This school is terrible. Teachers need to act like teachers and stop trying to act the same age as the students. A lot of the kids don't have any respect, but what makes it worse is when you see the teachers acting the same way as the students do. The principal is a whole differnt story, she walks around with her head in the air and do not seem to have any concern for her students. The classes are overbooked and to crowded. I just wish that I did research before I enrolled my child in this school.
For the most part I am ok with my son attending this school. The teachers try their very best to work with what they are given. However, I do feel that the lack of parent involvement is really sad. The teachers really could use more help in their classrooms and more support from the parents. I am very unhappy about the lack of security and how interaction the middle schoolers have with the elementary students. There definetly needs to be more discpline.
I can say that I do love the teachers here at Glenmount. They try their best to give individual attention to every student. However the students of today's century have changed alot since my sisters went here yrs ago. I give the teacher a lot of credit for sticking it out. They have a lot of bad mannered, ill educated children that attend here. The middle school students use terrible language around the elementary students. They use curse words that I don't even say. There is constantly a fight going on. The police are always at the school for some reason or another. Also be careful not to let the outside doors slam on your fingers u might be missing a few afterwards. (very hazardous) My child also has been sick every month since he has started school here. He/she is zoned for this school, however I really wish they weren't.
this school has really declined since they moved the original principal Mr. Crouse and Mrs. Walker to different schools, the children in the middle school mainly 7th and 8th graders give the school a bad reputation, one in which it did not have 5 yrs back. A small majority of the students in these grades don't even live in the zone for them to attend the school and this makes it bad on the students who live in the zone, not to say that there are not some in the zone who don't make it bad but if one really looked at the number of kids not in this immediate area one would be surprised at where most of the trouble stems from. The Hall monitors that are there at the school now 2007-2008 do nothing but walk the halls and talk to the middle school kids as
The teachers, students and parents at this school are mostly wonderful. The administration needs to be less afraid of suspending the students who make problems and are violent. They have lost great teachers in the elementary grades since the new principal came. The special educators are still fantastic from Mr. Mason and Miss Korner in Elementary to Mrs. Delaney and Mrs. Copeland in Middle school. Even the people who are at IEP meetings care about parents and kids. I wish the administration would realize how great there staff and students are.
My daughter is in first grade. The teachers are very caring, and giving. This school use to be much better.
Very good school, good moral support from teachers and staff. This school has a excellent princple Charlotte Williams. She is very good with the kids. She care about the whole child.
My child started Pre-K Aug. 28, 2006. One of my biggest problem was finding professionalism in the school's administrative office. The Principal was not present for Parents Orientation Day. That was not very good on her part. Also, the form room was not properly prepared. My child had a terrible first day. First of all children who are 4yrs old should not be allowed to go to a public bathroom without proper supervision by a responsible adult, they should even have a designated b/room. There was no soap in the bathroom. There is so much that can be done to show that teachers and others incharge really have an interest in our children's success. Parents, please stay totally intuned to your children's day to day school life.
Glenmount School was considered an excellent school in 1999 when my daughter attended now my son is there in the 3rd grade and it has become one of the most behavioral problem schools. It is important for parents to show there support, the last PTO meeting 1/18/06 1 parent attend besides the PTO Board and 2 Administrators. Parents where are you? If parenst would surprise there childrfen just 1 day out the week/month and monitor their behavior and be 2 steps ahead of the child school it would be a place to learn not be a social event each day. The next meeting is in May see You there! Parents are the key, the school reinforces. As parents we need to support the school and not fight them. It's second semester make your child accountable and your presence known! Parents have a huge voice in the school.
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.
