This is by far my favorite school. The staff is great and my son has special needs and they have done wonderful with him. He loves it. It is the cleanest school I have seen as well. They really care about their students. I will miss it when he has to leave.

Glenwood is now awesome thanks to the new principal! He has made Glenwood School a better place for all of us students. He really cares about us & our education. All the teachers & faculty are nice. The teachers really care about us students & never get rude. They are very polite! Discipline is great because Mr. Comer doesn't take any non-sense! I love Glenwood School soooo much! Wonderful school! Highly recommend Glenwood! :)

Glenwood School has high quality teachers who love teaching and take good care of our kids. The students and parents are not as involved as they used to be before the current administration took over and discouraged us. Glenwood has fantastic Band, Art, and Elementary Music programs. Clubs for older students are great. It has sports programs but could use more. All it really needs is a good principal to bring it back to number one! We love our school!

I have had a different exp. than the other mom. My son is in the first grade at Glenwood and he is doing very well. His teachers he has had so far (Mrs.Terry and Mrs.Redden) are wonderful and seem to really care about the students.

Posted September 2, 2004

My child (and I) went to this school for one day and I was appalled at the lack of structure and discipline at this school. (This was mid-October when children should have had some sort of routine set). Children were constantly up walking around, even out into the hallway area. This was a first grade class, children shouldn't be out just walking the halls whenever they want. Children cannot learn in an environment where there is no structure. When this was brought up with the principal, she was unwilling to do anything about it. I walked out in tears at how disappointed I was. I contacted the school board immediately to find out what else I could do. There is no way I would recommend this school.
