I have found the parents to be very friendly, and lacking some of the pretentious attitudes that can be attached to other private schools. I actually appreciate the fact that parents are involved, without taking over the school and interfering with how it is run. Having attended private schools throughout my education, the community of parents here is really special. My son joined midway through the year, and the parents that we met, even when my son was touring, were all so welcoming. They were able to provide me with informed feedback before we were forced to make the difficult decision to leave another school, which really helped ease our minds. They were also very friendly to my son, also lessening the stress of the transition.
As parents we have had a great experience at Glenn Arbour Academy. Parents are encouraged to be involved. The doors of the administration and leadership personnel are always open to the students and the parents. They make themselves available whenever we have asked. Even if it is just a quick question. The staff will call or email the parents, always keeping the lines of communication open. The staff will always take a quick minute to say, "Hello" to the parents at pick up times or at any events the school has. We have had many opportunities to volunteer and join the school for school fundraisers, book fairs, family events, movie nights, music concerts and many more. It is wonderful every morning to be welcome to sit in on their morning assembly in the gymnasium. It builds a school community, within a community. It has been amazing.
