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. If you are new to the area and would like a tour of Glenn C.

Glenn Marlow Boosterthon Fun Run 2016

Boosterthon Fun Run 2016

Glenn Marlow had its first annual Boosterthon Fun Run on Wednesday, April 27th, and it was awesome!

Our amazing students ran their hearts out! They did a fantastic job, and you can see how much fun the day was by checking out the Boosterthon-made video above! It was a great day for everyone involved.

Best of all, we raised over $18,000 to build a new playground and purchase new technology for our school! Wow– we exceeded our goal, and we couldn’t have done it without our Glenn Marlow students, families, and friends, and especially the Boosterthon team!

Thank you so much for your support, your pledges, and for supporting Glenn Marlow Elementary School!
