Glenmar Elem. School is a GOOD school for my kids. My son just graduated elementary from this school and my other son will be a 4th grader soon this coming school year. All the teachers are nice and very professionals. Mr Parker, the principal is very energetic and very involved in every school activities they have. He always make sure to remind every parents by calling or leaving a voicemail, to keep them updated and informed of every students activity in school. I like their Art teacher, Ms Fitzgerald. She always actively participate in Art Exhibits by submitting entries of her students artwork, which is also joined by other students from different schools of Baltimore County. Mrs Williams is my sons favorite teacher. She is a good and dedicated educator, very calm and caring teacher to students.

i was kind of hesitant to put my child to this school at first when she was in kindergtarten, but i just got a house in the area and i didn't had any choice. but i was so happy to find out the school was in good shape, physically, first, then th principal, mr. parker was a very good leader. he was able to put the school into an organized place for both teachers and students. you will even see him walk all the way to the end of the schoolgrounds to watch the kids go home. the teachers are great, very hands on and approachable. also, the school has free breakfast in the morning ! plus the rooms are cool during hot days which is important for kids to stay comfortable while learning. my kid is doing very good. her assignments and school works are at par. would recommend to parents not to hesitate to put their kids in here!

Both of my children attended Glenmar from Pre-k - 5th grade and I could not have chosen a better group of educators! Everyone at the school put the children first and made learning fun. They kept parents up to date and I never felt like I was being a bother.
