Welcome From the Principal

Dr. Marsha McGill   Principal

Dr. Marsha McGill

Welcome to the online home of Glenview Elementary! One of the most unique things about our school is the diversity of our student and community population. Eighty percent of our students are from a non-English speaking background, and we have on-site Arabic and Spanish translators who help students (and their families) transition to Glenview.

Our caring, hard-working teachers go above and beyond every day to ensure that every child is successful. I’d be proud to have you as part of our family and for our staff to have the opportunity to give your child a wonderful, well-rounded education.

School Description

Glenview Elementary is a diverse school serving a diverse community. We are an award-winning coordinated health school and we employ a highly qualified, friendly and welcoming staff. Our on-site Arabic and Spanish translators help our non-English speaking families feel comfortable at Glenview.

Students receive 90 minutes of dedicated reading and language arts instruction every day. Students also participate in Music, PE, Art and Computer classes each week. For even more learning opportunities, we offer Saturday classes and an English Language Reading Club.

Parents and families are truly partners in all we do. Parent nights occur throughout the school year to keep families informed about their child's progress and help them discover ways to work with their children at home. English classes, computer classes and volunteer days are offered either weekly or monthly. We give back to our families and community by providing two clothing drives that help families in need by providing school uniforms as well as other clothes. Computer help and internet access are also available to families.
