Great school. The teachers are very caring and they run a smooth program. Coming from a private school I was impressed how much better this school was. The teachers do a good job.

The teachers are very nice & friendly, they care about my kids education but at the same time don't let them run rampant in the classroom, they have to learn to follow the rules and that there are consequences if they don't.

The administration is unbelievable. The principal knows every child and knows about them. He is fabulous. The atmosphere has changed completely in the school since he arrived. Our children now enjoy being at school and are improving.

Our family has been very involved in many different schools and Glenwood Park is top notch! Mr. Weber is a positive and involved role model.
