Discover This School

The Glen Park School is a diverse, close-knit community committed to social justice and high achievement for all students. We strive to support historically underserved families and students while cultivating an inclusive community where all voices are valued and heard. Through equitable access to learning opportunities and explicit instruction, students are engaged in academic, social, and emotional growth each day toward the goal of being lifelong learners and allies.
We hold high expectations for all staff, students, and families, and support this in a variety of ways: we nurture a rigorous professional learning community, provide parent education and participation opportunities, and differentiate curriculum for student access. We use a restorative approach to problem solving and conflict resolution between and among students, staff, and families. We also have regular showcases of academic and artistic work to allow students to experience the satisfaction of a job well done. In addition, we provide literacy support in English and Spanish, a full-time librarian, and a Wellness Center staffed by a full-time social worker. Our teachers provide a solid foundation of skills instruction integrated with thematic teaching across grade levels, we use the Teachers College Reading and Writing Workshop model, and staff meets regularly to analyze programs and practices to ensure student academic, social, and emotional needs are being met.
