    As the parent of 2 children whom have attended schools now in 3 different school districts I have to say we've found our home!! This school is amazing from the principal to the teachers to the parents they all just seem to be so supportive and involved every step of the way with these children. I seriously doubt that I could find a better school for my son to attend and plan on continuing for the next 3 years!!! Go Glerum!!

    I have been grateful for the nine years I have had children at Glerum. The caring talented and exceptionally experienced staff have prepared our two sons for the future in ways my husband and I did not think possible. From the enthusiatic classroom teachers to the support staff who make all the difference I could not be happier with Glerum.

    I have two children that attend Glerum. They both love it and so do I. The staff is very friendly and knowledgable and I've come to know them all over the years. There are also many afterschool programs catering to a wide range of student interests. I would recommend this school to anyone looking for a close-knit supportive place for their children to learn.

    I have been teaching for 13 years. This is my first year at Glerum. I am so very impressed with the commitment of the staff. Each staff member goes above and beyond to make sure the students' academic and emotional needs are met. The teamwork between staff and students really makes Glerum a fun safe school to be at. If you choose to send your child to Glerum you are setting them up for a successful future! As we say here...Life Is Good At Glerum!

    West Ottawa is a wonderful district and I've been very impressed with Glerum Elementary. The staff is very caring and wants to be sure the students needs are met academically socially and emotionally. I'm always greeted with a smile and a helping hand.
