Elementary School Overview
In partnership with our community, Glen Lake Elementary School (GLES) provides all of our students with opportunities to acquire the knowledge, skills, and experiences necessary to build meaningful and productive lives.
GLES offers the traditional Kindergarten through 6th grade classes. Beginning in 4th grade students are introduced to the team teaching model of instruction used in Middle School and High School. All grade levels have the opportunity to participate in “Academic Specials” that include Physical Education, Music, Art, Library, and World Language.
In addition, GLES offers a Young Fives program and a Preschool program.
The Young Fives program has its own developmentally appropriate curriculum designed to meet the needs of a child who may not quite be ready for Kindergarten. The curriculum is delivered at a pace that has been adapted to best suit the abilities of the Young Fives child. It is similar to Kindergarten in many ways. The children do many of the same things, but with more individualized attention. Classes are smaller, allowing the teachers to do more experiential or “hands-on” activities.
When children attend Glen Lake Elementary Preschool they are given the chance to grow socially, emotionally, and cognitively. Lessons and activities are developed based on the needs of the children within the room. Every child’s needs and abilities are considered and planned around.
Glen Lake Elementary Preschool runs concurrent with the Glen Lake School schedule. Children can attend two to five days a week depending on their need or developmental level. If you would like more information, please contact the Elementary Office, 231-334-3061.
