This school is the only bright ray of hope for a district that has lost it's way.

I am completly satisfied with the level of education and care that Glenside Elementry school had been providing for my children, Starting from the pricipal and down to the lunch ladies, they are all great people who are there to provide a good education and work as a team for the children. As a result my children are honor students and I believe that the school they attend is at least 50% responsible, and I thank them very much for that. I recommend Glenside Elementary school to any parent because I have never experienced the same quality of education, care and concern from any other school in the district. Thank Heaven for the boundary exemption program!!

The teachers and principal at Glenside Elementary work very hard to help the children of Glenside. There are monthly family activities and tutoring programs daily AND on Saturdays. I would never consider sending my child to another elementary school.
