Glendale School, as an advocate of lifelong learning, supports students to be independent thinkers, leaders and responsible citizens in a positive, challenging and diverse learning environment. We believe this goal is realized by teaching excellence through development of individual expertise and team collaboration; successful learning where students are challenged to become engaged learners and leaders; healthy and active living. We strive to create a positive learning environment where students, as responsible citizens, feel accepted and safe. We feel a strong sense of community is developed through school-wide events, classes working together and celebrating our diversity. We recognize that literacy and numeracy learning is essential for students to become life-long learners who ask questions, think critically and problem solve in our knowledge based society. Our staff is committed to fostering these basic principles in serving our students at Glendale. For our shared goals to be reached, our students are required to attend school regularly and pursue being intrinsically motivated in their own learning.
