Glenwood Elementary School Ratings & Reviews

May 06, 2018 Submitted by a parent
I would rate this school as the finest elementary school in San Rafael, and perhaps all of Marin. Both my children graduated from Glenwood and one is now attending Marin Catholic and the other in her first year at USF. It all started at Glenwood. I find it disturbing Glenwood digressed from a 10 to 8. The reason, Hispanic students did not test as well as White, so Greatschools.org has a system in place now which diminishes the rating of the school based on what they call “equity” and “low income” rating. In other words, if the school has a low minority attendance represented, and that minority does not test well, the school is subsequently punished to conform to the State’s narrative. I am of Mexican ancestry, both my girls have always received exemplary marks, and continue to do so. By Greatschools.org diminishing the overall rating of Glenwood is an insult to me as a representative of the Latino community. In short, Great schools is saying that my girls are not as intelligent, and I strongly take issue to that.

Glenwood is a dynamic, vibrant, contemporary school with a committed and long-serving faculty and staff. As a Doctor of Psychology I have been pleased to experience the most updated educational methods and philosophies being applied by every member of staff. The school vows for everyone to be respectful, responsible and safe. The community of parents and teachers is wonderful, and it has a great smaller school feeling. Our children are thriving and we could not be any happier. Congratulations to Principal Goodhope and the amazing teachers and staff at Glenwood.

It is so sad that a sincere and truthful review was written..that wasn't sparkling and perfect..and the GSF gets it taken down. This is supposed to be a forum..1st amendment rights..guess the truth hurts..and I guess the GSF also controls this page as it try's to make stepfords of all of us @ Castlewood drive. What a shame..fabulous teachers..good kids..very controlling parents association. So glad that there are other forums that won't be strong armed.

I am a parent at Glenwood School with two children that have had the most wonderful educational experiences over past six years. The teachers and administrative staff are extraordinary and they only have the best interest at heart for all of their students. As with all public schools in CA there are many missing components which are sadly not offered to schools and that is where the Glenwood School Foundation comes in to help round out the curriculum. Fundraising is a big part of any school and Glenwood is no exception. In order to offer classes such as Art, Computers, Music, PE and Science, we must participate in any way that we can to help fund these programs. Playing a part in school in any form helps the big picture for the students. Parent volunteers are desperately needed all year long to help facilitate programs, assist the teachers and enrich the academic experience for the children. I feel so grateful to Glenwood for providing such a safe and loving environment for my kids. Mrs. Goodhope is leading the school with experience and grace while being a supportive mentor to her students and teachers. My kids are happy and excited to be at school and that is truly priceless.

I am the Glenwood School Foundation (GSF) co-President and I'd like to address your comments. First, regarding our principal, Kim Goodhope, my oldest child had Kim as a teacher in 3rd grade, and from our experience she is an outstanding educator. I have yet to encounter a single parent who has had anything negative to say about their child's classroom experience with Kim. Having worked closely with her in her principal's role, she is proving herself as a capable and dedicated leader. With respect to your comments about the GSF, would we rather there be no need for any fundraising? Of course, but unfortunately, neither the state nor the district will provide a computer consultant, PE, art, music or science teachers, so we must pay for those things which we consider part of a robust education experience. The GSF also provides technology enhancements, campus improvements, field trips, etc. Our total annual budget is approximately $350,000 for those programs and nearly all of those funds directly benefits Glenwood students. I invite you to come to our next meeting on Oct. 8 to find out more about us, or you can contact me via the GSF website gsf.glenwoodspirit.com. Thank you.
