In September 2019 our family went on a tour and interview at Glenn Arbour Academy. We were interested in registering our daughter for grade three and our son for grade five. Our children were hesitant about the idea of changing schools, but from the moment they stepped in the front door at Glenn Arbour Academy they absolutely loved the school! From the warm welcoming atmosphere, to the teachers and students. My kids felt like they belonged there immediately. At the end of our tour we knew right away that Glenn Arbour Academy was the school for our children. Our children love and benefit from the small class sizes and the one on one help they receive when needed from their teacher. It is so refreshing to see our children have a love for school now that they are a part of the Glenn Arbour family!
Our son started at GAA midway through the year, and the teachers/staff/students all made him feel so welcome, making the transition far easier than I could have imagined. He had adjusted so well to the school environment and has really bonded with his teacher, even through this difficult time of social distancing. Mrs. Blanken does a wonderful job engaging her students through e-learning. The classes seem to be formed based on suitability, ensuring that the class as a whole can grow. The JK classroom seems to be learning together, allowing the teacher to focus on every student, rather than just one, who might be struggling. On a more trivial note, our son loves that the JK's are able to join in the extracurricular sport programs, and he also loves the catered lunch options.
