I was unfortunate enough to overhear how the principle deals with issues and its absolutely disgusting to hear how she talks to other people's children. I hope the school board finds an appropriate principal to lead this school soon.

After visiting the school today with my Granddaughter, Selina, for the yearly orientation day prior to the start of school, I must say that I was truly impressed at the organization in the school, the grounds and all the teachers who were so very friendly! They all made us feel so comfortable and welcome. I think we will be happy with Glassford Hills Middle School for the school year 2013-2014.
