A legacy of learning, a community of excellence.

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 children’s educational experiences positive ones.  Many on our staff have won awards and recognitions, such as:

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.

Cold and Flu Season-- Stay Healthy!

As we have entered into the cold season of the 2018-2019 school year, please make sure that you and your child are taking the proper steps necessary to stay healthy during this time of year.

Routinely washing your hands with soap and water, covering your nose and mouth when sneezing or coughing, keeping your distance from others who may be sick, and wiping down and disinfecting surfaces that may contain germs, are just a few preventative steps you can take to ensure your children and your household remain as healthy as possible.

If your child is sick, we ask that you keep him/her at home until they have been fever free and vomit free for 24 hours.

Thank you, in advance, for being proactive in these actions that help control the spread of germs and illnesses in our school. If you have any questions, please contact Kim Ball, our school nurse.
