Truly the BEST SCHOOL, EVER! Glenwood Elementary has the most caring and compassionate teachers in Tennessee. These teachers remain, today, just as dedicated and loyal to their students, maybe even more so, as our teachers were back in the 60's and 70's. They're implementing the new strategies, but still allow the children to have fun while learning. The entire staff is amazing! SUCH A BREATH OF FRESH AIR!!!!

I have taught at Glenwood for 23 years and would not be happy anywhere else.

Glenwood is a wonderful school for all age levels. The teachers are parent orientated and encourage all children to do their best. The Principal and all staff members are great role models. My son has been to a few different elementary shcools and we both LOVE GLENWOOD!
