I have two sons in Glenwood and they have really worked hard to make learning interesting for each boy. One is in Gate while the other is doing very well. Where he has issues, the teachers work to build capabilities. I can not have asked for more out of a school than what Glenwood has provided.

Like a private school, with 10 out of 10 API numbers, huge parent involvement, which is a big reason this school is a Blue Ribbon Credentialed school. Their principal has been around for a long time, and their program are very consistent, and their standard is very high.

* In 2011-2012 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.
