    "Glen Oaks is a wonderful school from what we have seen and been involved with. My wife has been active in PTA and other activities and has been happy with everything she has seen. No school is perfect, but this is a very good school."

    "I agree with the most recent comments completely. The leadership is well, terrible. If your children attend Glen Oaks and you think the school is great, well then you have never encountered an issue. Once you have a problem or an issue, your eyes will be opened. The principal and assistant principal will not be very responsive or respectful. We left Glen Oaks last year to attend another school district and it is night and day! We had one issue this year in our new school that was rectified immediately. The principal at our new school truly cares and will respond to you and your child's needs. Sadly, Glen Oaks did not do that. And I also agree that there is a big bullying problem at Glen Oaks(and sadly the worst bullies are some of the teachers!) There are a handful of amazing teachers at Glen Oaks and luckily my kids were able to be their students. But I feel so bad for some of the other children that had bullies as their teachers. And yes, this school completely teaches to the test. And then when your child excels on the big standardized test, do they receive any acknowledgement? No. All they want is their money. So glad we moved...my children are thriving more than ever now."

    "Glen Oaks is in a beautiful community and has the benefits of extensive parental involvement. Our children attended the school under the former and present leadership. The school has declined significantly in test scores and satisfaction under the direction of the present principal. Unfortunately, nepotism is rampant in MISD which has allowed her weak, ineffective leadership, as well as several members of the teaching staff, to continue at Glen Oaks despite countless complaints for many years from families. They teach to the mediocre masses and focus strictly on standardized tests. If your child is over or under the median, do not expect anything extra. We left as soon as we could."

    "Our children attend Glen Oaks and we could not be more disappointed in the experience they have had while there. The climate of this school is extremely negative and bullying is a serious issue. Many of the teachers are very negative with the children. There is a lot of yelling and shaming of children especially in the upper grades. There is a remarkably high focus on standardized testing and getting the scores the school needs to appear impressive to the community. Unfortuately, many of the teachers are extremely out of touch and fail to use best practices for teaching. Some do not even seem to like kids. The principal is a weak leader and is not helpful in any way when issues arise. In fact, parents who bring problems out in the open are pretty much ostracized. The community is lovely and parents are extremely involved in the school. Still, the educational environment has become so bad at Glen Oaks that we have decided to move our children to another school. Though there are a few teachers who are exceptional, in general, this climate of the school is inferior to other schools in McKinney. Proceed with caution if you choose to enroll your child here."

    "We have two children at Glen Oaks Elementary and we have been so blessed for our children to attend this school. In reference to the reviewer disappointed with the getting assistance for her child, we have had the total opposite experience. The teachers and principal at Glen Oaks have been wonderful with my ADHD child. As a working parent, my children attended private daycare until they were old enough for elementary school. My ADHD child had a terrible time at private school - the teachers and principal could care less about helping him. Private schools don't have to take difficult kids. In most cases, they tell you upfront that they can't take your child or they kick them out during the year. I hope you'll consider giving the teachers and principal at Glen Oaks another chance. They have done do much for building up my child's confidence after he was emotionally torn to pieces at private daycare."
