Our Commitment to Inclusion:
As a Title One school, Glen Forest embraces an inclusive philosophy. We use a co-teaching model to support students in their general education classroom. As a result, our teachers communicate and collaborate on a regular basis to meet the needs of all students. Enrichment is provided to all students through our Strategies Lab and the Young Scholars program. GT students are served through school based classrooms in grades three, four, and five.
Our Commitment to Technology:
Building technology skills for the future is a high priority at Glen Forest. We support this goal through our computer lab, mobile laptop carts, participation in the RiverDeep Destination Math program, and the use of Smartboards (interactive whiteboards). Students are challenged to use technology beginning with our Head Start program through fifth grade. Their instruction includes training on various software applications.
Our Commitment to Our Families and Community:
Connecting with families and the community enhances the academic achievement of all students. In addition to an active PTA, the Glen Forest Parent Center serves as a hub for parents to support school activities and programs, as well as, providing them with the opportunity to make connections within their own community. Educational opportunities are offered through monthly Parent Coffees, computer classes for adults, Partners in Print, Curriculum Fairs, Family Fitness Nights, and International Cuisine and Fashion Nights. These activities and programs build community spirit and celebrate our cultural diversity.
