Well I went to glenwood also. I went K-8. At the time is was a good school. when Mr.Clark ran that school everything was in tact. I enjoyed it. I have to say they have had a big change and I don't agree with how things are. I don't have kids there but I have a niece. and the teachers there I feel like are only there for themselves and not for the kids anymore. They never bother to pick up the phone and call and say your child is missbehaveing they wait til its out of hand and then lay it on the parent to try to take care of. I don't agree with the teachers throwing a childs work away. I have a hudge problem with this. All work should be accepted. what happen to handing the paper back to the kid and haveing them redo this? they take too much upon themselves to do. Yea not all the teachers are bad but there need to be some changes! They have taken pretty much everything away from these kids such as Santas workshop and ect... also it was what 2 years ago Glenwood won the first championship in Glenwood history and you never heard anything about it and as far as I know the parents paid for what them kids received. If you want everyone to be so proud of this school then they should do something for these kids.
Are you the only person on this thread that doesn't know your kid is throwing their own papers away? Gosh, how dumb.

glenwood doesn't have any help for kids having learning problems.the teachers are no help.and some of the teachers need help on how to be nice to kids.
Glenwood is full inclusion school. That means special ed is mixed in with regular kids . It is not the teachers fault. Call the board of education and ask them why there is not more help and why they do that. It is not for everybody. That is what started a lot of trouble. The teachers try and they are nice to my kids.
so sad

My son goes there. He has no behavior problems at home. They continually state he has them at home. They continually blame my husband and I. Here is what I dont get. If we are such bad parents tell me why my kid dont have to take his medication at home. Tell my why I can control my kid. Its the school that cant seem to do anything with him. And you know what he goes to day care after school and they dont have problems. Yet its all my fault. They may have gotten a new principal but they have the same teachers. I am so sick of hearing this. They cant meet their mandates so what do they do try there best to blame the parents for their problems at school. I am sick of them. They need to start trying to work with the parents instead of bi#@%ing because the kids arnt fitting into their perfect little mold.
same here, my grandson went there was always in "trouble" but he was transfered to another school and he has no problems there actually the teacher says he is a very smart boy and a sweetheart.. i think its the teachers myself becuase they let "certain" kids do what they want, picking on another child and doing nothing about it but when he would defend himself then HE was a problem, whats up with that?? the kids at the other school dont have a problem with him either, he has more friends there too! they dont pick on him so he has no reason to defend himself!!

I was a substitute teacher for two years and was at Glenwood School several times. I'm sure there are some good teachers there, but I witnessed several that talked to the kids like dogs and were extremely rude. I would never send my kids there!

But yeah, the teachers at PSHS will tell anyone that the Glenwood students are smarter & they behave better than dang Princeton kids. Princeton middle kids are stuck up & not nice. Some are cool but others think they're too good.. they ARENT tho! Glenwood all the way baby :)
Why did they not fire that bitch when she was principal at Glenwood?

Sounds like your not so much of good example of a good parent with that language you use. I bet you are one of those parents that encourage your child to be disrespectful to people in authority! Authority must intimidate you! Oh wait I bet your one of those parents that has a perfect child that never does anything wrong and it must be someone elses fault all the time! lol yeah all of those kids have parents that are so in DENIAL! I have worked with kids for years and I can tell you from experience that it is the parents fault 90% of the time! Children learn from nurture and nature and if you speak in your household like you have done on here and you speak in front of your children in a negative disrespectful manner about teachers principals ect... then your child learns from that and acts like you do and they are to young to understand not to exhibit those behaviors at school. Therefor its YOUR fault if your child has issues at school. How in the world can children learn to respect their community with parents that don't teach them to? Then everyone wants to complain about how society is now yet they will not start in there own home by teaching their own child! Its so much easier to expect the Teachers and Principals to teach your kids respect then complain when you dont like how they deal with it! People like you need to WOMAN up and be a respectful Mother! It's your job to raise your child the right way and when they stray its your job to teach them right from wrong! YOU are the one that will have to answer for that one day

Let me just jump right in here with this one...Mr. Comer might be fine as an elementary/middle school principal, but as a person, he's a real piece of work. He is dishonest, greedy, and shows not one single ounce of compassion for fellow human beings. He refuses to take responsibility for his actions - even when they happen to be perfectly honest mistakes that anyone could make - and does it when the proof is shoved right under his nose. I realize there are plenty of people who like him and, as I said before, he might do a fine job as a principal (don't know, don't care), but as a man, he's cold, callous, and disrespectful. Everything is always someone else's fault as far as he's concerned and he'll lie and cheat as much as he needs to in order to cover his own ass. But, I'm a firm believer in what goes around comes around. So, Mr. Stephen Comer has it coming to him - and I sincerely hope he is smart enough to realize that Karma catches up with everyone eventually. And, if you're reading this, Mr. Comer, I most certainly hope you have the sense to remember the little "incident" several years ago where you screwed up pretty badly and almost cost a good man his life - and then you lied about it through your teeth, denied it even when the proof was shoved in your face, and caused undue stress on a wonderful, decent, loving, caring man and his family. I sure hope you're good to those kids. But what you did will bite you right in the butt one of these days.

Sounds like I hit a nerve? Could you be the person that I was referring to?

No, I do not teach my children to be disrespectful but this woman is the WORST example of a school principal that this county has ever had. We all know why she was retained as long as she was. I, for one, am glad that she is out of the system.

Allegedly someone embezzled money from the Brooklyn fund at the pre-school and got busted. Forced to retire or be fired. Don't know if it is true or not, but it wouldn't surprise anybody who knows her.

They say Mr. Comer is all show...does his paperwork so he looks good but doesn't have good control. After the school board put that Walthall woman out there to tear down the school, why did they send somebody weak to clean up her mess? No matter what, it is still the best school in the county.

No...everybody DIDN'T know how she kept her job. No clue. She was a bitter person and you are right to be glad. She ran off a lot of good people and hired some real winners when she knew she was leaving.

I am so glad they got rid of that witch Jane Walthall. She is the poorest excuse for a school principal that I have ever seen. She slept all of the time and took out her anger on the students. The last year that she was there, the kids did not get their yearbooks. I wonder why??? I also wonder why the Board of Education took up for her. She did not last long at Silver Springs.

I agree that isn't the best language for a parent to be using in front of a child but mrs. Watthall was an absolute poor excuse for a human being. She use to tell us there was no such thing as love, && no one could possibly love people like us. She also use to tell the older cheerleaders they needed to go on a diet. She was so disrespectful, && unconsiderate I'm glad she is gone. I just feel sorry for the little pre-K children she had authority over, because they have to grow up thinking the same way.

Mr. Clark was the best principal ever. Mr. Comer is pretty good from what I can tell but he really needs to get control of his staff. When that happens it will be a better school again.
Have to disagree with you on this one, I think Mr. Comer is the biggest joke to ever come to Glenwood. He is simply a puppet that lets Beverly White pull his strings, they should just give her his job, she does it anyway! But other than that, I love Glenwood, my kids have went there since Kindergarten!
