School Description

Glencliff Elementary is a community-based school that strives to serve the needs of our diverse neighborhood. In addition to preparing our students for academic success, our curriculum also focuses on building leadership and responsibility skills. 

Among the many academic opportunities we provide students at Glencliff is Encore, the district’s gifted learning program, and related arts such as PE, art, music and technology. Glencliff also has an experienced staff of loving teachers who care deeply about the emotional and academic success of each student. 

Our parents notice the enthusiasm their children have about attending Glencliff. When we’re out in the community, we often hear comments about how well-behaved our students are. We work diligently each day to ensure that students are SOARING to the top in all aspects of their life.
