Glenn C. Marlow Elementary School

Glenn C. Marlow Elementary School serves children in Mills River and Fletcher communities.  Since the birth of our school we have enjoyed great successes and growth. There are many ways to judge an institution’s performance.  We believe that our community shines in all categories.  Our children come from loving and supportive homes. This in turn makes working with children and parents a joy.

We are proud of our beautiful facilities. Marlow’s staff is second to none with twenty-two teachers having National Board Certification.  Every employee at Glenn C. Marlow works hard to make childrens’ educational experiences positive ones.  Many on our staff have won awards and recognitions, such as:

North Carolina Principal of the Year
Outstanding Bus Driver of the Year
Four District-Level Teachers of the Year
Fulbright Scholar to Japan
Who’s Who Among American Teachers

We hope you find Glenn Marlow Elementary to be a warm, inviting and caring school where children are encouraged to reach their maximum potential. Our staff’s priority is your child’s safety and education.

Stop that Summer Slide!

Summer is quickly approaching, and with it, the dreaded “Summer Slide!

When students lose many of the great gains they’ve made in reading ability over the summer, we call it the “Summer slide.” That’s why reading over the summer is so important– it helps students keep up their reading levels, and it’s a great way to stay occupied during those long, hot days.

If you need a way to keep reading fun, there are some excellent summer reading programs available through the Henderson County Public Library and even some local businesses. There are also a number of places to get free e-books!

To find out more information, take a look at our list of available summer reading programs and free e-books.

Parents and families– interested in keeping up with your child’s grades, growth, and attendance at school?

You can create a Parent Portal account in Powerschool, which will allow you to access your child’s information at home.
