We started at GAA midway through the year, and the administration had such close contact with our son and with us, keeping us all comfortable throughout a huge transition. They have such a positive presence, right from the very first time you walk through the door, and they know each child and their parents by name, which creates a very personal approach. We have not had any experiences with discipline as our son is only in JK. That being said, at our previous school, the class size was so large, with a couple of children who required extra attention, and the go-to was to send them to the principals office. The school leadership at GAA seems to be one of a caring nature, and the JK's are guided so that they aren't ostracized by sending them to the office.

In our experience at Glenn Arbour Academy administration staff is respected because they respect the student. Whenever there is a problem, it is dealt with swiftly and taken very seriously. They have a lot of compassion and that helps to create a very positive environment at school and with the child. They are not overly harsh in their punishments and effectively communicate solutions. They make the students feel like they are well-cared for and are given a proper chance at a wonderful education.
