As a foster parent, most of the kiddos that come to live with me have previously been behind regarding academics. The teachers & school district work hard with getting these kiddos the extra help they need to succeed. I know it can be challenging for everyone. I have never had to fight for the best for my kids because the school already provides the best! They truley care about the students & love them hard for the time they are with us!

My experience has been wondrous. There is so many options on activities. Such as sports, UIL, band, choir, dance, cheerleading, and so much more! The academic studies at this school are beyond amazing they prepare you for what you will absolutely need in college. The teachers are tremendously helpful when it comes to your studies, they also teach you how to be responsible for taking care of business and how to deal with difficult situations in a respectful manner. The last thing I have to say about my school is about our food... it’s good to a certain extent. I wish we were able to have a less strict rule on how healthy are lunch HAS to be. But overall, our school is amazing inside throughout. It challenges you past your limits to be the best you possibly can be.
Glen Rose is an exceptional school to attend. Everything from academics to sports to the marching band, I highly recommend this school for anyone. All of the teachers make sure to teach all units clearly and make sure that everyone understands. The district provides a mac book air or iPad to every student for their school work. The lunches are better than your average schools lunch, they have everything to real meat to a snack line. If you have a food allergy don't fear for they can make you special food to ensure that you eat! All of the staff and students are welcoming to new and current students, which is what every person needs in their school life.
