    My child is just about to complete their first year at Glenwood in K and the experience could not have been better. Involved detailed immersive family inclusion and a tremendous community. I could not have asked for nor expected anything more.. simply a terrific experience.

    My child is in K and has the best teacher ever. She is so patient and kind. We could not be happier. His classmates are also very fun and seem to all get along well. The boys and girls all play together. The one negative is there is not much play time.

    Great school. Most teachers are excellent. Kids are exposed to fun ways to learn in nurturing environment. Thoughts on improvements Automate the way children bring home folders filled with forms. Too much time is asked of parents to commit to school activities makes it difficult for family where both work .

    We just completed our first year @ Glenwood and we are blown away by this school. The principal and staff are incredible--personable involved caring and incredibly nurturing. The teachers are experienced tenured and very caring. The curriculum is as advanced as the private schools my children previously attended. The music program is AMAZING. They have an excellent after school program. The school radiates warmth the walls are papered with art work children run about happily and I feel happy leaving my kids there every day. The only critique I have is that the car pool at the end of the day is not as secure as I would prefer. It is a privilidge to have my children attend this incredibly fine institution. Schools like this are a a rare find. F and educators like Dr. Jasin the principal are equally rare.

    My son attended kindergarten at Glenwood last year. It was an amazing experience! The school's staff work as a real team are caring and kind with an obvious goal of bringing out the best in each child. I never expected a public school to live up to my high expectations. This one has.

    I am a parent of a 6 year old girl that attends Glenwood Elementary School and I have to say that I am impressed. Coming from NY and one of the better public schools I was astounded at the level of care that the staff has for every child. My child is in wonderful hands and the education that she is receiving is fantastic as well.
