This school is ok. Not the best by far. The teachers are mediocre, office staff is rude, and principal is unreachable. My daughter had many issues with bullies and I had to hassell the office people to have someone return my call. I never once spoke with the principal. I ended up speaking with the teachers. The only teacher that has stood out to me so far is Mrs. Allen a kindergarten teacher at this school.

I have been a teacher here at Glen Park for over a decade. I have seen some great teachers come and go. I love teaching at this school because we have the best parents and the best staff in Fort Worth. There are times that we get tired and stressed but our students are always first in our hearts and in our minds. We work for the kids because we want to make sure they excel i everything they set out to do. I love this school and with a new principal I know we can only get better. Go Glen Park!

This school is terrible! The Principle does not care about students or parents. Ive heard teachers and staff yell at the children and say that they are tired of them. There's so much favoritism, racism, and prejudice from the teachers. Unacceptable amounts of children are being retained. There teacher student ratio is 26 to 1. They have 2nd grade in the outside portables instead of 5th grade. I don't think that's very safe.

Teachers are great and work very hard to provide one on one learning in the classroom. My daughter viviana's teacher ms. D and ms. chaka make good impressions on her.
