Glenfield Overview

Community, curriculum, coherence, climate and character are the building blocks at Glenfield Middle School. Our students truly have choices; real options that promote excellence in living, as well as learning. Glenfield Middle School reflects the energy, sense of possibility and engagement that define the adolescents we serve.

Students are assigned to one of several houses. Within the house structure, a sense of family is promulgated as people connect to create community. The value of "family" is affirmed, and students are supported by a team of teachers who encourage them to unfold the mysteries of life through language arts, mathematics, science, social studies and world language. In addition, through our aesthetic electives, youngsters create, shape and express themselves through a rich variety of artistic experiences in paint, sound, language, body movement, clay, voice and film.

Students and staff are energized and broadened as they create opportunities to sing, to say, to inscribe, to render, to show, to actualize something new to the world. Through an extensive elective program and interdisciplinary areas, Glenfield students experience what is demanded by artistry; they understand what excellence implies and become acquainted with more than their visible or audible products or achievements. Glenfield's program unfolds the process, the craft, the self-reflection, the rehearsing, the remaking and doubting into that which is referred to as excellence.

Glenfield Middle School is a purposeful learning community with a clear and vital mission; students have more to discover, limits to be broken through, horizons to be reached and untapped possibilities to explore. Through a multitude of experiences, our students make sense of their lives cognitively, perceptually, imaginatively and effectively. Glenfield Middle School celebrates the individual child, affirms the right of every youngster to a quality education and upholds academic standards for all.

Technology in both the "lab" concept and as part of the disciplines enriches all our students. World Language is a new basic subject introduced to all students. Academic success is the cornerstone of our foundation. The enrichment that overlays this strata adds meaning and purpose to our school. Our mission statement reads, "We believe that every student can learn and achieve in a stress-free, safe, and secure environment, which is both nurturing and challenging."
