Overview

Glenview Elementary School is located in a quiet residential neighborhood between Highway 580 and the Warren Freeway in Oakland, California. It enjoys a very high level of parent involvement and strong administrative leadership that has organized parents and teachers into a cogent force for addressing school challenges. Numerous partnerships exist with local institutions providing enrichment during and after school.

At Glenview Elementary School every student is encouraged to be a life-long learner. To accomplish this we envision a clean, safe environment where our students are actively involved in a learning process that is exciting, meaningful and interactive. This process is built on the strengths and diversity of our multiethnic student body population. Activities are provided that enable students to take pride in who they are and to gain an understanding and appreciation of other cultures. Glenview's parents, staff, faculty, administration, and community have a strong commitment to the arts. Because of this commitment, Glenview students have 1-2 arts classes each week ranging from dance, drama, theater, music(instrumental – grades 4 & 5/vocal – grade 2) and visual arts. In most instances arts classes are integrated into the regular curriculum, giving students a broad range of ideas and inspiration so that they have a well-rounded educational experience.
