My prayers were answered to have a good school year for my children at Glen Harmon. I love the goal setting and character curriculum. We have been blessed with good teachers and the overall school year with faculty and school events was rewarding. Looking forward to the new school year.

The academic program at Glen Harmon is good in most areas. I have been very dissapointed in the quality of teachers and faculty. They are not very friendly and do not support the children the way they should.There are a few good teachers at Glen Harmon. But not enough. There are too many instances of ill treatment towards students by certain faculty.Be sure you check your schools throughly before moving in to the district especially this one.
