Glenpool Middle School2

The counselor, Michelle Cole is the most ridiculous excuse for a counselor I've ever seen. The parents are treated as outsiders here. The students are taught by several ineffective teachers. You either get it or you are out of luck. Our daughter has attended Glenpool schools since pre-K. The past three years at the middle school have been the worst. We have been very disappointed here. Our Daughter is an A student with no discipline problems and perfect attendance and we have had to fight tooth and nail with these idiots this entire three years. P.S. Watch your kids around the counselor. She frequently called our daughter in to her office for no reason just to see how she was. She called her out of class to do this. We finally demanded through the principle that she stops this at once and not call her back into her office without my husband or myself present as our daughter had no issues or reason to be questioned so frequently.Guess what? She stopped calling her in! She gave our daughter the creeps and she did us too. Something's weird there.
My child has been in Glenpool Public schools since 3rd grade, she is an 8th grader now. I am very happy with all of the Glenpool Teachers and Staff I have encountered in my childs school career. They have always been willing to help when necessary and to challenger when necessary.
Unfortunately, leadership is lacking at this school and the teaching my child received was very uneven. Personal experience with some teaching staff was extremely unprofessional. A small school like this one doesn't afford much choice when teachers aren't meeting your child's need. And the school system is doing very little to weed out those teachers and higher staff who are just 'biding their time,' while they waste the precious time of the students they are trained professionally to serve and inspire.
Glenpool Middle School is a great school. The buildings might not be great, but the education is awesome. Glenpool Middle School gets a 10 in the ELL scores and as well as high rankings in other test. Glenpool Middle School is full of motivation. The Middle School offers reward trips every year to students will good grades, and good behavior. The Vocal department has gotten mostly 1's in contest with a few two's. That's pretty good considering it goes all the way down to five. One is the highest. The band is great to; they have gotten State awards as well as many others. If you are looking for a great school with many great programs Glenpool is the place.
