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:

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.

Girl Power Retreat

Girl Power at Marlow!

Attention parents/guardians of our fabulous 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade girls: it’s Girl Power time!

That’s right…we’re back! On Friday, January 27 from 4:45 – 8:30 our STEM Committee is hosting an evening of empowerment for our girls. We will begin by having dinner together (a taco bar). While we eat, we will have the all female leadership team from HiViz LED Lighting talk with our girls about working in the various STEM fields.

Participants will then participate in 3 rotations that focus on building confidence (we have an all female crew from Henderson County Sheriff’s office teaching our girls some self defense skills), encouraging creativity (Girls will design and build their own “Girl Power” sign – thank you Board and Brush!), and increasing STEM awareness (participants will create and build their own Glowing Valentine).

This event is limited to 45 participants. The cost is $50. This covers dinner, supplies, and a t-shirt. Individuals with inquiries regarding need based scholarships and/or any questions should contact Stephanie Patton,

Please complete the Girl Power Registration along with making the payment by January 11 to ensure registration.

Please see the Girl Power Flyer for more information.

Creating a Parent Portal Account in PowerSchool and Setting Email Notifications

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. Not only that, but you can also set up e-mail notifications, so all new items go straight to your e-mail inbox. This is a great way to keep track of your child’s grade in class, days your child has missed, and more.

Tutorial videos are available below to assist you in creating a Parent Portal account, and in setting e-mail notifications. Please check them out!
