NEW, INNOVATIVE WEST VALLEY HIGH SCHOOL PUTS FOCUS ON COLLEGE, ACHIEVEMENT
Glenview College Prep Opens for Classes August 5, 2013
PHOENIX – Students who may never before have imagined themselves on a college campus now have a new chance to dream big.
Glenview College Preparatory High School, a tuition-free public school located at 3802 West Maryland in Phoenix, is set to open its doors to students on Monday. This is a safe, small, neighborhood school, its school leader and teachers are launching with a singular core focus: to graduate students who are fully prepared – mentally and socially – to study, compete and succeed at colleges and universities here in Arizona and across the nation.
“If you want to work hard, and have the help and guidance you need to succeed, we want you here!” said School Leader Giles Glithero. Glithero, whose own background is as a math teacher, believes the small class sizes and personal teacher-student attention is the key to success. “Our goal is to innovate through each and every student. Perhaps even more importantly, the students themselves will shape the future of Glenview. Even some of the elective classes will be created based on our students’ interests as well as our teachers’ personal areas of expertise and passion.”
Besides its emphasis on academic excellence, Glenview – which is part of The Leona Group of public charter schools – will offer outreach programs with colleges and universities. Dual enrollment will be an option for students who wish to earn college credit while still in high school. Clubs, student activities and sports will also be tailored to meet student interests. Enrollment packets are available online in English and Spanish, or you may contact the school directly at GCPInfo@leonagroup.com. Enroll today – You belong here.
