We moved to the district of glenmore elementary two years ago. In hopes that all the things I heard about it was true. My son is fixing to continue at glenmore for third grade and we are so excited. He had a great two years there thanks to Mrs. Boatright and Mrs. Johnston . They are amazing teachers. So here s to a great new year. Thanks glenmore staff.

Great school! We love the teachers and the postive atmosphere . The teachers are willing to work with you and yoru child on anything and everything. The principal is a good leader, and willing to do anything in her power to make sure ALL students and parents are satisfied. There are several ways for parents to get involved with their childs education, like ascience day, fall festival. They also have luncheon days for moms, dads, and grandparents. I hate to leave this school it has been so great to my kids.

This school, the teachers, and the staff are awesome! Our girls have gone to school here for three years and when we move next year I am going to be really sad to see them go. The teachers and staff go way above and beyond for the students, they are like family. I just hope we can find a school as fantastic as this where we move next! This school really is perfect!

Glenmore is been an excellent school for my son, he took 3rd & 4th grade here and he's been an excellent student, the teachers are very friendly and comprehensive, overrall all the staff are great, the review for the TASK tests are fantastic for the students, I have to leave the school this year because we're military family, but I will miss this school and I know my son too with all his friends...There's nothing bad that I can say about this school because is simply perfect....

I changed districts to send my son here and I'm glad I did. He did great thanks to Mrs Boatright. My son is ADHD and will finish this year with an overall A. This school is the next best thing to the gifted program.

Excellen school, I agree with all the other parents. We were here for 6 mths since we were AF family. We moved here from Italy and my little one couldn't even read or write ABC's and within 3 month my son went from that to writing and reading books, Ms .Hirt was his teacher, and all I can say about her is that ,you can send your kids to expensive Private school and yet not find such a smart, compassionate and best teacher!!!

Glenmore is a great school with fantastic parent involvement. The students staff and parents work together to make the learning experience at Glenmore the best if can be for children. There are many volunteers that help make a difference at Glenmore too. This school really is like a small community with families working together and helping each other.

A former Glenmore Elementary School student myself, I am extremely proud to say that my children now attend Glenmore. The staff and principal go above and beyond making sure that my children are treated fairly, and my children have flourished because of this. There is a school comraderie present that can be seen amongst staff and students alike. I would recommend any parent considering sending their child to Glenmore to feel good about their decision to do so. A+++++++++ School!

My daughter started Kindergarden this year and so far I am very impressed. I work at a nursing home and one of my little ladies is an ex school teacher. She told me Glenmore is the best elementry in San Angelo and so far so good.

Glemnore is an excellent school. I went when i was younger and now my children go there. The teachers are excellent and work hard at getting the help any child may need. my son had trouble with his reading, they gave him help and now he's doing an outstanding job and is an accelerated reader!

I love this school! We are in the Air Force and we only got to stay here for 5 months, my kids and I were very sad to leave this school. I had a 5 year old and a 10 year old 4th grader. My 5 year old in that short amount of time progressed very fast. My 4th grader loves school, teachers, and was happy to go everyday. They had dinner for parents during open house, it was so neat. The school works very hard to come up with fun creative ideas to involve parents and schools.

A few years ago I went to Glenmore, the teachers were very nice and always helped. We learned everything we needed to and had fun while we did it. I recall my teacher reading to us and making us what to read. This school may not look like the best from the outside, but the teachers are great!

I am very happy with Glenmore. My son has gone there for two years now and my daughter started Kindergarden this year. Her teacher was very understanding and extremely helpful with the anxiety my daughter had at the start of school. I found the administration of the school very helpful. Any questions or problems I had were promptly taken care of. The principal went above and beyond the call of duty with helping my daughter overcome some personal issues. I give the administrators and the teachers a definite A+.
