My son attended Kindergarten at Gladden in 2014-15 and had a great year. His reading and math skills grew by leaps and bounds and he also matured socially and emotionally throughout the year. His teacher was very engaging and responsive to his individual needs. The administration and staff at the school were great -- my son often came home to tell me something fun/interesting he did in one of his special classes or something that his principal said or did -- everyone seemed involved and committed to educating and creating a positive environment for the kids.
Gladden is a terrific school! My daughter has attended for 2 years, and both her teachers have been caring, creative and enthusiastic about learning. The principal is very involved and energetic, and he is also a lot of fun, so the kids like him too. The music teacher and the librarian are excellent and do really fun things with the kids. This is a school in an area that doesn't have a lot of "money," but Gladden's principal and his staff are doing an excellent job with the resources that they have. I feel like my daughter is learning everything she needs and more, and she really enjoys going to school. I love Gladden!
T have five children and all of them have an a b average. The teachers push our children to be the best they can, and never let a child get behind. one of my children has adhd and mrs. lewis was a life saver with this, she took extra steps that a teacher does not have to take to ge my son where he is. This year my son is a honer roll student, and I think that is thanks to Mrs lewis,
