My son is in Mrs. Dawkins' 1st grade class. She is great with him & has been able to establish relationship with him that no previous teacher could (3rd school since kindergarten due to out-of-state relocation & nightmare experience at other FWCS last yr.). He had some behavior issues & had been bullied ...  Read more

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.

As a former student, I must say, this was one of the best schools I attended. My parents were military and we moved every 3 years. I attended 2nd-4th grade at Glenwood Park. I say that my success here and thereafter in school was due to my teacher Mrs. Litton. She taught me that you can always do more ...  Read more

I have 2 children, one has moved on to Jr high, the other is still at Glenwood. Both my children have gotten an excellent education at Glenwood Park. The teachers are first rate and set high standards for learning. I would recommend Glenwood to anyone looking for an elementary for their children.
