Mrs. Blanken, the JK teacher, provides her students will challenging work, that exceeds the JK curriculum in public schools. Each child is so engaged in learning and is given the opportunity to express their individuality. Not only do they learn a lot, but they all seem so comfortable with each other. A very supportive learning environment. My son also really enjoys his music, french and gym classes. It's fantastic that at this young age, they are provided with teachers who specialize in an individual area. So often, JK's are taught all subjects by their homeroom teacher, and while that teacher might be a great teacher, they don't always hold the knowledge required for specialized subjects. The teachers that we have had this year are all stellar at what they do.
The teaching at Glenn Arbour Academy is truly extraordinary. They are all friendly and clearly passionate about their work. The teachers could be approached with any question and it would be met with kindness and understanding. The class sizes are on the smaller side, which gives every student a chance to participate in class. The attentiveness of the teachers truly makes a difference in the educational experience. The teachers are highly respected and take the time to remember everyone's name, even if you were not in their class. We were truly grateful to be a part of Glenn Arbour Academy during the pandemic, with the administrators immediate response to have the children and teachers set up with Google Classroom for remote learning. The teachers worked very hard to keep the children engaged during the uncertain time.
