My son attends GCS and started in the 6th grade. He absolute loves the school! He moved from another smaller private school in the county as it only went up to the 5th grade. He very quickly adjusted and made new friends. The teachers are wonderful and welcoming. They’re all very helpful yet ensure the students are challenged. They have a variety of academic options from language to various electives the kids can chose from. The sports and band program is also very solid. We are so happy to see our son thrive in an environment that challenges him and absolutely made the right choice!
The administration at Glenelg Country School will reflect on both the positive and critical feedback that families and students have taken the time to provide, thank you. We strive to make every family’s experience positive, successful, and fruitful. When your child is enrolled at Glenelg Country School, you become a part of our community, and it’s our utmost goal to make sure every family feels supported throughout their child’s academic journey. As always, every door is open to speak with administration and teachers to address any and all concerns. We are genuinely invested in your child’s future and will provide every opportunity available to see that their potential is met. Sincerely, Glenelg Country School Administration
