I have one child in Glenolden elementary school and we are new to the school this year. Ms. Lambert, the principal, and Ms. Kugler have been the people we have dealt with most. Ms. Lambert gave my child a personal tour this summer and has been very helpful in all the things I have needed help with in this change. Ms. Kugler, his third grade teacher, has shown great patience and stays in contact with me or anything extra that I need to do. I think Glenolden school is a great fit for all the needs of my child.

I have three children, all of which either recently graduated from Glenolden school, or are currently enrolled. I have been very happy with the work they do at Glenolden. The teachers are all very wonderful, caring and hardworking. They truly care about the children and it shows. I have to tell you about two people who standout from the crowd from my personal experiences, and they are Ms. Lambert, the principal and Mr. Siriani. My oldest son who graduated last school yr June of 2013 at one point in his academic career began to experience some depression due to the loss of our beloved pets. His grades began to drop from honor roll to C's and D's. Both Ms. Lambert, and Mr. Siriani were on top of the situation and helped to get not only my sons grades back on track but they helped me get him back on track emotionally as well. I've never experienced such compassion. I can rest peacefully knowing that my two remaining children are at Glenolden with the same wonderful staff. Whenever I have a problem I email Ms. Lambert and I don't know when that woman rests because she emails me right back anytime that I email her. All children should be so lucky to have such compassionate teachers.

My 2 children attended Glenolden School last year and I am very sad we moved from the area because Glenolden was a great school. All of the teachers who my kids had interacted with were great! The teachers there are very supportive, caring, and understanding. My daughter is still sad that we moved and always talks about her teacher, Ms.Keenan (who was her 1st grade teacher). I had the pleasure of watching Ms. Keenan interact with the children and all I can say is, I was amazed! The children loved her, they were so attentive and very respectful of her, as she was to them also. She was a great motivator and has an awesome energy; just as good as it gets for a teacher. We miss Ms. Keenan, Glenolden School and the community dearly.

I have two children in Glenolden Elemnetary and I am very pleased to say they are doing a wonderful job. My daughter was having challenges with reading and the school assigned her a reading specialist and she jumped two grade levels in reading in just one school year. They really take time with the children and offer great activities for the children. The best is the music teacher.

My children had been attending a private Catholic school in the district. My youngest daughter was having difficulty in reading. The principal of the school suggested tht we transfer her to the Interboro school system (Glenolden School). It has been 3 years now and my wife and I could kick ourselves. Our children are doing great. They are challenged on a daily basis and excited to learn. The Teachers have been fantastic and we are proud to live in the Interboro School System.

Glenolden School, and Interboro High School were helpful in preparing me for life as a student, and human being. The faculty was always caring and the curriculum was challenging. My love of school, Glenolden, and the Interboro School District has helped me become a caring fifth grade educator also. Glenolden School was the start of it all.
