Glen Edwards offers a variety of programs for our
students. Students who attend our school have the opportunity to
participate in AVID, Art, Computer Technology, Student Leadership,
Music, and Video production. These programs are all in addition to the
rigorous core curriculum offered throughout the day.
At Glen Edwards Middle School, we take great pride in
meeting the needs of all our students. We have support classes called
STRIVE for those students who may need extra support during the school
day to meet the academic standards in English and Math. Our staff works
extremely hard to develop relationships with students, both inside and
outside of the classroom. You will see many of our teachers outside of
the school day supporting our students. There are also many
opportunities for your child to participate in school activities outside
of the classroom, by way of athletics, dances or by joining one of the
various clubs we have on campus.
GEMS has a proud and rich history with continued
excellence. Currently, the facility is in the middle of a major
renovation. Thanks to the Measure N bond, GEMS will have a new two
story building at the end of this school year (Phase One). The new
building will consist of 9 classrooms, 4 of which are science, an art
studio, broadcast studio, and media center. The second phase will
include a new gymnasium, new band room, and a new addition to the
administration building, along with improvements existing classrooms.
This two-year project is anticipated to be completed by 2020. We are
excited for our students and staff to have this state of the art
We work hard to develop strong relationships with our
parents. Through the English Learners Advisory Committee (ELAC),
students site council, and our Association of Parents, Teachers and
Students, we are able to increase parent involvement. This year we are
offering PIQUE, which is a parent institute that will help parents learn
more about the educational system. We are continually working on ways
to include parents in the educational process. We welcome all parents
as a partnership in their child’s education.
