About our school:

Gladys Wood Elementary provides a safe and positive learning environment for our culturally diverse students and their families.

  • Our academic program is child-centered, with instruction focused on students’ individual needs at their developmental level, allowing every student to make a year’s (or more) progress, and to close the achievement gaps.
  • As part of our schoolwide behavior program, individual student responsibility, respect and safety are the norm.

Gladys Wood Elementary opens its doors to all, providing an inviting place for children to succeed.
