We have had two children go through Glenwood and we can only say from the principal to the custodial staff, this is The finest school you could send your children will attend.

My son attends Kindergarten at this school. The teachers are very kind and caring. This is very important to me because my son had an awful experience at another school last year. After this, he had nightmares about it and didn't want to go to school anymore. He was left outside on the playground after recess,for about 15 minutes tangled in a soccer net.(Thank God or who knows what could have happened to him.) Before this happened he had loved going to school. It was so bad that I removed him from school and home-schooled him for the rest of the year. Thank goodness, we moved in the spring to a different school district and he can atttend Glenwood this year. Thank you Glenwood and St. Simeon's for making my son the happy little boy he was to begin with who loves school and learning.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 New Jersey used the New Jersey Assessment of Skills and Knowledge (NJ ASK) to test students in grades 3 through 8 in language arts literacy and math, and in grades 4 and 8 in science. The NJ ASK is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of New Jersey. The goal is for all students to score at or above the proficient level.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
