Glenallan Elementary School5

Glenallen has done a complete 180 in the last 2 years. The new principal and faculty are amazing, the new building is beautiful and technologically advanced, and the STEM program is among the best in the county. Last year's 3rd graders beat out the rest of Montgomery County on the math assessment, which was a major feat in itself! These changes are right on time for our kindergartner and soon-to-be kindergartner. Love this school!!!
My son loved attending this school!! We were very sad to have to move in the middle of the year. His first grade teacher was awesome, he was very hands on and dedicated to his work and students. We moved quite abruptly and was unable to notify the teacher right away. After a few days, we received a call from his teacher checking in on my son, wondering where has been the past few days. It was very nice to see that personal touch and such raw dedication and genuine care for students well being. The administrative staff is awesome and the principal is a very stand up guy, charming and really friendly. I really miss having my son here.
The change in leadership and the brand new building have made ALL the difference in the world between my rising 5th grader's experience v. my rising 1st grader's. LOVE the principal and assistant principal; they are fully engaged and committed to every child's success, excellent partners with the parents, great communicators, great administrators, great people.
Glenallan is an excellent school! My son is going on his fourth year here. The Principal and Assistant Principal are energetic and committed leaders, the teachers and staff are highly dedicated, and my son has made friendships to last a lifetime. This year they have a brand new, beautiful building, they instituted the STEM program, they now have an engineering club, and a student council. You really don't get a sense of how unique and inspiring Glenallan is unless you visit the school and meet the students.
My grandson attended Glenallen Elementary School. I really liked this school and it's curriculum but most importantly, I really loved the teachers. They are professional but they also treat every child with respect and love and it shows that they love their jobs.
GREAT SCHOOL AND GREAT STAFF! I have had the chance to volunteer at a number of Glenallan functions and am amazed by the wonderful administrators and teachers. The new principal is doing a great job. The whole staff is very devoted to the kids at Glenallan.
GREAT school!! The staff is wonderful and really involved and engaged. The new principal is doing a spectacular job and it's easy to tell he really cares about the schoool, staff, students and community.
My daughter attends Glenallan and is in the third grade. I must say, the staff is nice but no nonsense, the teachers are very competent and overall, the school environment is welcoming and wonderful. We just got a new principal this year and he seems qualified and is doing a great job so far. The school has an excellent curriculum and a plethora of school activities as well as extra-curricular activities for the students. Anytime I had a complaint or concern is was handled in a professional matter and all issues were resolved. I love this school.
