About the Provider

Description: We believe that an effective school is one where all people involved believe that students can learn and gives them all equal opportunity to do so. The results should be measurable. There should be strong leadership and appropriate goals. An effective Glenwood School will exhibit genuine concern, true commitment, ownership through teamwork, high expectations, and strong community involvement. This atmosphere will foster high self-esteem and will generate productive citizens.

At Glenwood Elementary, we believe that all students can learn regardless of their background. Staff members are committed to helping each child reach his greatest potential academically, physically, emotionally, and culturally. Strong parental involvement and community support foster an atmosphere of high expectations and cooperation throughout our school. Consistency and dedication in moving toward our goals of excellence will allow Glenwood Elementary to meet the challenges of the future.

Through strong instructional leadership, a common goal, high expectations, active parental involvement, and a faculty working together harmoniously, our goal will be met. Needed changes will be based on appropriate student assessment. With an environment filled with love and respect for all, Glenwood School will provide a quality and equitable education.

We believe that Glenwood School will be a place where a quality education is available and achievable for ALL – a place where students, staff, and parents will work together in order to motivate and encourage each other in our quest for excellence in education. We will honor the past but will challenge our leaders of the future to take their rightful place in the information Age Society. We will ignite the spark of curiosity that creates a life long love and desire for learning; so that, ALL students will be able to actively participate in the democratic process.
