Promoting Personal Standards for Success

At Glen Cove Elementary, we follow three essential personal standards in everything we do: making good decisions, solving problems, and showing respect.

Through explicit teaching, reinforcement, and review of these expectations, we empower our students to take responsibility for their learning and behavior. This approach ensures that they consistently succeed, both academically and socially, in and out of the classroom.

Empowering Learning Through Project GLAD

Our dedicated educators are extensively trained in Project GLAD (Guided Language Acquisition Design), a dynamic curricular model comprising more than 40 teaching strategies. This student-centered approach supports all learners in acquiring academic language, enhancing literacy skills, and mastering content knowledge. With GLAD-trained teachers at the helm, students actively engage in learning, foster inquiry skills, and cultivate essential social abilities.
