A solid Elementary foundation is paramount to building a learning relationship that last a lifetime for Children. What plant grows solid roots, if not in good soil and cared for? Glenn Marlow has been an awesome growing experience for my Grandson and has even taught me a few things on how to nurture the next generation of awesome adults. To the Principal of Glenn Marlow School; what makes my Grandsons' school day awesome? You Sir.... You.

Glenn Marlow is an excellent school and we've been very pleased with our daughter's experience here. The staff is extremely friendly and caring. This school seems to have the balance right, between great academics and a nurturing atmosphere. We only wish that Art and Music instruction were both year round.

Posted July 24, 2009

We moved into the Glenn C. Marlow area so our daughter could attend this outstanding school and it was the best thing we have done for her educational experience so far. Her teachers have been outstanding and quick to come up with solutions when she has struggled. Parent involvement is welcome and there are many opportunities for parents to be involved at school and with PTO activities. Parents are always welcome. The staff all genuinely like each other and the overall feeling is one of acceptance and devotion to learning. Every child should have an chance to grow at Marlow.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 North Carolina used End-of-Grade (EOG) tests to assess students in grades 3 through 8 in reading and math, and grades 5 and 8 in science. The EOG is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of North Carolina. Students must pass the grade 8 EOG test in order to graduate from high school. The goal is for all students to score at or above the proficient level on the tests.
