This is school is not friendly with kids who struggle. I had my child there for 2 years and she was not striving and got no help. Additionally, we did not receive much information about programs, sports or field trips. This school fails on a level of communication that is key to the success of your child. The staff was very hands off.

This school is terrible. I had my son enrolled last year for 2nd grade. The teacher refused to help us when we asked for additional resources or help or to get together to discuss his failing english grades after she was late getting grades to us and gave us no warning that he was failing until then. We would spend hours with him on homework and weekends with no help from her. Additionally, we came to pick him up once and they had lost him and he didn't reappear for over 20 minutes and the teacher had no idea that he had ever left her presence! My friend walked straight through the office and into the school once without knowing any of the staff or having anybody ask her who she was! Our son failed the second grade and could have easily been kidnapped. Additionally, they offer no talent show or any medium like that which I though was odd.

I really enjoy this school. My 9 year old has been here since kindergarten and he has enjoyed every year. Next year, our youngest son will start kindergarten and we are sure he will have the same enjoyable experience.

Taylor school has the best front desk team, especially Kay, she was very efficient at the beginning of school with all the craziness with the office being crowded and everyone needing help, Kay took charge with a smile on her face all the time...very professional

Kay in the front office is the most miserable woman on the earth. Why she is seated in the VERY FRONT of the office is beyond me. She NEVER greets you, never speaks to you, you have to say HI to her first before she will even look up, and even then she still doesn't say hi, she waits for you to tell her what you need. Ridiculous!! If she's so miserable she needs to quit. Other than that I am happy with this school. This is our first year in this state, town, school and other than KAY, Glen Taylor is a good school.

I have mixed reviews about Glen Taylor. PTA communication is 1/10 with 1 being the lowest. The office staff is very moody and not very personable. Sometimes they are pleasant other times they are just DMV cranky. The school nurse seemed inattentive when I was telling her about my daughter's health concern. I walked in and was not greeted or noticed for a while even though I stood right in front of there desk. Homework isn't graded in Kindergarten. The only time you find out if your child needs help or improvement is through progress reports where the teacher says isn't accurate. Teacher to parent communication is 3/10. Sometimes we are informed of what to expect in advance for the following month, many times we don't. I've ended up calling several other parents trying to figure out what's going on just to learn they are doing the same. Kindergarten is mostly about performance not much on what is known & learned. My daughter actually asked for EXTRA work because she was bored. What is great about the school are the kids. The kids are great. Most parents are active in their child's learning within the classroom and out. My daughter is in first grade now, we will see how that goes.

Amazing! I have a child with ADHD and his teacher Mrs. Curtis is the best thing that could have happened to him! She is amazing and a wealth of knowledge and caring. The principal and Vice Principal are great and the kids are excited and happy at the school! Couldn't ask for more!

I have had nothing but pleasant experiences in the years my son has attended so far (K-3). The only complaint I have is every single time I walk into the front office, I never get greeted or even acknowledged until at least 3 minutes have passes and you feel like they have to go out of their way to help you. Not very pleasant at all!

The teachers are pretty good but the principal is terrible. She doesn't accept calls from parents, occasionally she'll have the vice principal take care of parent concerns if you keep calling. She doesn't seem to like kids.

I think this school has the most committed teachers. Parents are also very involved at Glen Taylor. Unfortunately, with the new principal, things have changed for the worse. She never smiles and has changed alot of things for the worse. Sure miss the last two principals who genuinely seemed happy to be there. The staff in the front office seem unhappy and rude now too.

Like every school, this one has it's good and bad. Administration could be much better than it is. The feeling I get when I walk in the front office is how could I be so stupid to ask questions they have been asked a million times. And how dare I interrupt whatever it is they are doing at their desks. The principal seems to have a presence whenever I am at the school, I usually see her walking around in the halls, which is a good sign, but she is new to the school this year, and judging by the way some things have gone she is still trying to get the hang of it. My daughter had gone through 4 different teachers, all before November. Because of the chaos we didn't even see progress reports until almost January. We are looking into private schools for next year. Not happy here

This is a great school. The teachers are terriffic my son had Mrs. Aquino which I just loved. If I could I would have her follow my son all the way to 12th grade. The only thing I feel the school lacks is better Admin. It would be nice to be acknowledged when you walk in to the office right away. Other then that the teachers are great.

I love this school! This will be my son's second year at this school and he loves it. The teachers are great. He had Mrs. Johnson in second grade who is a fabulous and genuinely caring teacher. He is now in third and is privileged to have Ms. Ayala as a GATE teacher and is looking forward to having Mr. Anunson in the fifth grade. The teachers here go above and beyond for the students. They have a new principle and we've yet to see how she will be, but the past 2 principals have been great. Highly recommend Glen Taylor.

All in all, this is a good school. I do feel that my child's teacher listens to us, and she is very helpful and answers our questions honestly. I do feel perhaps because of the size of the school safety is a bit lax.
