  • Traffic has improved greatly with some changes we have made. We have almost 900 students so there are a lot of cars in a short period of time which causes a back-up.

    Test scores are good. We have made AYP each year. Teachers are doing many innovative things in their classrooms and we place an emphasis on utilizing technoloby.

  • Sub-standard education at its best. I will not be sending my kids here. The school needs security cameras, more adult supervision, etc. what more else is there to say?

  • School safety outside (a lady was walking a very large great dane) on the side walk besides the school between 7:45-8:00 a.m. while children were walking to the school. Very dangerous situation. Adult help is needed outside everyday to help in situations like this.
    (mornings and evenings) Also parents double park in front of the school which prevents you from leaving. K5 should get out 15 minutes earlier than the older kids. too many kids out at the same time (traffic is AWFUL.)

  • I believe Principal is an excellent principal. The only problem I foresee about Glen Iris is the security. We need more security in and around the school. In the mornings when the children get dropped off someone needs to be standing outside in the afternoons someone needs to tell these people not to park their cars in the parking lanes and get out leaving them unattended which means no room for parking. I was yelled at and honked at today while picking up my daughter for school. The school itself has cameras but it doesn't matter because you can go into and out of the building without anyone saying anything to you. Also, people double park and let their children out in front of the moving vehicles. I worry for my daughter everyday that she is going to be attacked by someone over there if it is not a student then by another parent.
