This school has been very great to my child. She's on the right track of becoming of what she wants to do in the near future. She came back with a smile on her face and telling how great this school is. She was blabbering on her teachers , the work she done, and it was marvelous to hear. Her math is just amazing. She entered this school since kindergarten and now is in 6th grade,learning her butt off and being happy about it. She was always in those 01 classes. For instance,701, which is the gifted class. So, I recommend this school , P.S/I.S.109 Glenwood Academy for Science and Technology.
The school is on the right track. My kids are at this school and have nothing but good things to say about the staff. Some kids are behavior problems but the administration is doing all it can to deal with those few.
I am new to the community and the school. I think the teachers are doing a wonderful job, especially the teachers in the gifted & talented program. Many of those teachers seem very committed to the kids that they teach. The new principal seems to have really turned that school around!!! Kudos to them. He has stated numerous times that he envisions 109 as a school that prepares their graduates to go on to extremely competitive high schools and beyond. Kudos to them!!!
This is my son's first year in the public school system and they sent him to this school. His teacher is loud and lazy. She is absent almost every other week. The principal is more concerned about her lunch duty then answering parents concerns. I am afraid that this year has back tracked my sons education because the teacher has to spend so much time reprimanding troubled students. Don't send your kids here!
