    My daughter is a student at GHS and I am very pleased overall with the quality of education she is receiving as well as the environment at the school. To my mind the school performs well because of PARENTAL INVOLVEMENT and evenly applied and appropriate disciplinary action on the part of school administration - as is necessary to maintain an atmosphere where learning can occur . Nonetheless as parents we CAN DO BETTER. Those of us who try to stay up to speed with what's going on in our kids' classrooms discuss continually the importance of school achievement and hold our KIDS accountable - rather than pointing fingers at teachers and administrators for failing to parent our children - we need to make our voices heard. And while we're at it - we may find an hour or two to mentor kids whose parents are asleep at the wheel!

    We have had a child in the Middle School for the past 2 years now and have had a great time with the staff and Principal's. We have had the best time and have found everyone above standard in meeting all the needs of our children. We are very much looking forward to High School at Glenvar.

    Glenvar can be a great school . However over the past 4 years the lack of leadership has taken it below sdanders. Most parents are reluctant to speak up for fear of reprizial.
