Welcome to Glenshire Elementary School!
At Glenshire Elementary, in partnership with our families and community, students will experience a balanced education addressing the needs of each individual child. For all children to succeed, it is necessary to integrate social, emotional, and physical development with a strong academic curriculum, within a safe, secure and peaceful environment.
Students at Glenshire are responsible active citizens in our school community. They engage in meaningful learning opportunities and make contributions to their classrooms, school and community. Students are challenged and motivated by high expectations resulting in high quality work. They have opportunities to work individually and cooperatively in safe and respectful environments that foster a love for learning.
The staff at Glenshire is a community of learners. They collaborate together in Professional Learning Communities (PLCs) in order to reach their full potential with students. As a result they are committed to developing a habit of curiosity, inquiry and reflection that touches students and adults alike. Dedication to the PLC model translates to student support and school wide success in all areas. Teachers at Glenshire are consistently recognized and honored by their peers as outstanding leaders and educators. They are experts in differentiating instruction to meet the needs of their diverse classroom communities. Together with families and students, Glenshire teachers and staff create a safe and nurturing child-centered environment where children can flourish and meet their greatest potential.
