This is our 3rd year in Glasgow and my daughter loves it! what great schools does not show is that Glasgow is home to Advanced Academic program, which provides amazing opportunities for our kids. The teachers are great and always eager to help. Amazing development opportunities are offered as after-school programs. Which other middle school provides an opportunity to kids to build and fly a drone? Or study advanced theater? Principle DeRose is a rock star who is responsive, active and knows every kids by name. Could not be happier and feel lucky that my second daughter will be there next years as well.

The Great Schools ratings do not reflect the quality of the AAP program within Glasgow. It is a very strong continuation of the AAP feeder cohort from Belvedere ES and others with a program, in part, focused on preparing the AAP student for entrance to TJHSST. Both my current 8th and 6th grade children are thriving, achieving the highest grades in classes, gaining leadership experience, social skills, experience in attending state-wide STEM competitions, and participating in one of the strongest music programs in the area. Is a challenge to address the student body with ESL obstacles, home cultures not rigorously supportive of high academic achievement, personal discipline, social skills involving positive leadership, and other key attributes for success as defined by these scorecard metrics or the environmental metrics such as in the per capita highly competitive DC Metro area. I do think highly of Principal Derose, school officials, and especially the teachers my children have had the privilege to learn from. Go Panthers!

Principal is great -knows every kid (it seems), responsive to parents and hires and keeps phenomenal teachers. Very diverse school that is making great strides.
