Glacier Park Elementary School Ratings & Reviews

Everybody is great and friendly. Non-judgemental and caring

My son's been attending Glacier Park for 2 years now and so far he's been thriving there. The teachers he's had have been wonderful, caring, and very talented in their profession. The school also gets a lot of volunteers and that makes a huge difference for the students and the teachers. The office staff is warm and caring, and I've seen first-hand how they know most of the kids by name, there are over 800 kids attending! Katrina in the front office is a gem, she's got so much to handle, yet manages to stay sweet with the kids and attentive with the parents. I can't say enough good things about this school.

I am still waiting to see the 5 star rating at this school. It has been nothing but a disappointment since my daughter starting attending here in kindergarten last year. So far, we have had "dud" teachers each year. The K teacher was smug, dry, and rude to the kids right in front of the parents. The 1st grade teacher has been very passive aggressive in their responses to questions about my daughters progress, as well as concerns about the classroom. Very condescending. The office staff seem to have every excuse in the world when bringing concerns to them. No one ever takes any responsibility for mistakes or oversights, which are constant. My child was lost by the school staff one day and they just shrugged it off. Many parents, when picking children up, are rude as well. Many just cut you off in the line to pick up your kid and just look at you like "what?". The only positive so far has been the principal. He is a sincere man who takes responsibility for his staff, something they should learn to do for themselves.

I have had three children in Glacier Park over the past four years and can confidently say that NONE of them has had a "dud" teacher. My son received a perfect score on the 5th-grade science MSP, and I give his teachers 100% credit. The Tahoma district is a funny dichotomy: District curricular leadership is exceptional, so teachers and administrators really collaborate and devote themselves to the notion that students should experience an outstanding curriculum across the board at every level. That means, happy, stimulated kids and high test scores. On the other hand, TSD struggles to get the community to approve construction bonds. That means the buildings are a mess, overcrowded and falling apart. Glacier Park is no exception, but they make it work anyway. Beyond awesome academics, the school offers before- and after-school enrichment clubs and sports, a visiting drama program, and one of the best music teachers around. The principal is fine, but the teachers are outrageously good, and kids just seem to love it there.

School has wonderful supportive staff. Teachers vary. I love the emphasis on reading at every level K-5. Homework could increase a little to prepare students for middle school. New principal on board who seems to have a good handle on things. PTSA is wonderful. Hoping to see more parent involvement in PTSA in order to continue to provide excellent enrichment programs that kids thrive at at GPES. Definitely recommend this school!
