I cannot say enough good things about this school. I am so surprised by the eating on here because it does not match my experience or that of the other parents I have spoken to. I highly recommend Glen Forest. If you move into this community consider yourself lucky.
I have had 2 sons go through Glen Forest, one is still there. I remember moving to the area and focusing on the ratings. I was HORRIFIED that the school in our pyramid was rated so low. And then my boys actually went there. I cannot praise the faculty and staff at this amazing school enough. They truly care! My kid is not just a number, he is not a box to check. I don't know if my involvement makes a difference (I am a class mom and part of the PTO) but the environment at this school is just what my son needs. I love that his teachers thus far have been amazing and open to my help, the assistance principals are spread across all 6 grades (so they can focus more on a certain subset of students) and that when I walk in to volunteer or just go meet him for lunch the office staff is warm and inviting. Mrs. Choate is a principal anyone would want to have leading the effort. She is the perfect balance of heart and a hard ass! And to be perfectly honest you can't baby these kids. You have to have someone soft enough to be understanding and stern enough to be effective. I could not have been more wrong when I saw that initial rating. While I agree with others on the PTO, I also have to say that you have to sign up and be active parents. They are always seeking volunteers. The opportunity to give to the school is definitely there. This school is a gem and I am a proud Glen Forest Elementary Parent!
I'm beyond happy with the experience my children have had at this school and their preparation for middle school.
Great school with qualified and passionate teachers.
