Testimonials

GlenPerson
Sending your infant to school can be terrifying, but since day one, our daughter's teacher has gone above and beyond to reassure us that The Glen was the best decision. Each day we see evidence of the confidence and independence the teachers have instilled, whether it is walking up and down the stairs on her own or looking through a book describing pictures to herself, we know these skills all started with The Glen! We feel lucky to have this opportunity for our daughter.
Mia and Shane Nickolich, Birth to Three Parents

My son has told me that he loves school. I am a believer of it takes a village to raise a child, and I could not ask for a better village than the Glen.
Jan Held, Children’s House Parent

I know the Glen Montessori School gave me an impeccable education and foundation. As I have become older, I habitually see the benefits of my Montessori education. So much that I have worked in Montessori classrooms and plan on sending my children to a Montessori preschool. It is such an amazing way to learn.
Eileen O’Boyle, Alumni student who attended the very first classroom of The Glen in 1986 and daughter of a founding mother of The Glen

We've been a Glen family for over seven years now and because of the wonderful teachers and staff at the school, not once in that seven years have I ever worried about whether my boys were being well cared for and safe. They've learned so much and love school!
Natalie and Alex Taylor, Children’s House Parent

Our daughter has been at The Glen since she was 9 months old --- and now she is 7 and in second grade! It has been amazing to see her growth in academics, confidence, and independence. The collaboration, helpful spirit, and diversity of the children make this such a special place. We attribute much of this to the nurturing staff and the Montessori curriculum. The collaboration, helpful spirit, and diversity of the children make The Glen such a special place.
Donna and Kilichan G. Elementary Parents
