Hello fellow parents,
I just posted a few notes from my tour of Glen Park Elementary.
Please go to this link:
This was one of my first schools to tour, so I'm still forming my "reviews" and my thoughts on what to look for in a school. My goal is to tour two mid performing schools, two higher performing schools, a charter and a parochial. I'm trying to get a good balance under my belt to know what's really out there.
My overall thought was this is a very charming school with potential. The principal led the tour. She's pretty old school as far as principals go. This is good for some, but may not be for everyone. The school seems to be in a transition of sorts. A new PTO has formed which, I believe will help bring the school up a bit. The API scores seemed to have dropped in the past couple years. If anyone has insight on that, please comment below.
If you'd like to gain any additional knowledge from my tours, let me know.
