Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled.

The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

    I transfer my 8 yr old here 3 yrs ago now she is in 2nd grade she has speech delay and has been in the IEP program for these yrs. My daughter just keeps improving which gave her confidence and enjoys going to school. My daughter keeps getting certificates for her improvements and I am so grateful for that. Her teachers are just amazing! I might sound like I am overreacting but this is what I have seen in the past 3 yrs. They go beyond for their students even with the whole crisis going on teachers try their best to manage with the tools the U.S Education department provides. Wanted to post this to let every one know I appreciate the dedication these teachers have for their students. But parents please don't forget the teachers can only do so much it is our responsibility to guide our children their education starts at home )

    Glenwood is small school (+/- 400 students) with a relatively large special education population because there are 4 special ed classes and one RSP on campus. The campus feeling is cozy and the quality of instruction has improved with each year that I have worked there as an itinerant provider (this is my 3rd year). There are still some issues that need to be addressed but the trend is for improvement and it has become a very decent little school. I would consider sending my own kids there.
