- a
Wonderful school with amazing teachers! The class sizes are also smaller than most other elementary schools in the county. The school is very diverse which really creates a rich learning environment. Glen Haven also supports the children of military families that live in the area and work at Walter Reed.

Teachers miss class very frecuently. Bullies are shielded, protected from getting any correction and the principal does not care at all about it. The principal will defend her staff even if they are in the wrong and she would not care or offer you a solution at all. I cannot wait for my children to go to a different school.


Teacher effectiveness: Strongly agree


- a
My child is reading an entire grade level ahead. In first grade, she was learning and understanding very complex concepts. The kids love the teachers and you can tell that the teachers love the kids.

Amount of homework: Agree


- a
Homework packets are distributed at the beginning and due the next weeks. Kids can work on them at a pace that is most appropriate. In first grade, this may have averaged out to 10 minutes per night + they ask you and your child to read together every day.

Develops character: Strongly agree


- a
Each month, the entire school has lessons that revolve around a particular character trait, such as honesty, integrity, and fairness. They celebrate students who demonstrate those character trait.

Terrific administration, caring and dedicated teachers, a welcoming and diverse community. My child is thriving at Glen Haven.

I absolutely love Glen Haven! The new principal is awesome! The school has an open door policy which I love. I volunteered in my son's classroom often. Parents are able to walk their child into their classroom every morning and talk to the teacher if needed. All of the teachers at Glen Haven seem motivated and really want the students to succeed. My son loves the school and has made some great friends. The PTA is dedicated and working hard to help the school succeed! I highly recommend this school!

The new principal that came in the fall of 2014 has really changed the atmosphere of the school for the better. Parents are welcomed and involved. The teachers are great! My son really enjoys his class and participates fully. There are many fun all school events to attend during the year.




- a
Excellent staff and leadership! Thank you for your heart and sweat for our kids daily. Much appreciated!

This school is fantastic, especially relative to the travesty we moved away from. Great teachers, great PTA, great leadership; it's genuinely confusing to me why (as I write this) the school has a 3/10 rating.
