Can't say enough wonderful things about this school! The Teachers and staff are truly dedicated to the cause. The Principal here runs a tight ship and we couldn't be more grateful and proud to have our Grandson attending Marley Glen.

A+ for AACPS special education programs! My son started attending Marley Glen at 3 y/o, after attending the 0-2 y/o program at Point Pleasant Elementary Infant and Toddler's program. Can't say enough good things about both schools! Infant and Toddler's laid a solid foundation, Marley Glen has continued the great job. My son's ECI teacher, Ms. Robin is kind and attentive and takes a earnest effort to get to know each child. My son has been gaining new skills in the few months he's been there. Heartfelt thanks to all the staff at Marley Glen!!
