We moved from NJ to MI and now to PA. This is no doubt the bests school of the bunch. The teacher-parent communication is outstanding, the children are challenged, and they handle challenges very well. Very happy with Glenwood.

I think the teachers should do an evaluations of themselves. If there should be changes in their teaching performance. Not to wait for the standarize testing to come to make the changes.

Glenwood is a great all around elementary school. Parental involvement is high and special needs can be accomodated upon request.

I'm shocked there are any negative reviews with this school unless people have the expectation that a place can be perfect. IMO, Glenwood comes pretty darned close for a public school/budget restrictions. Though there is a new grading system which allows children to compete against themselves instead ...  Read more
