About Our School

  • Glendover sits in a quiet, residential neighborhood on a large campus that includes a walking track, tennis courts, and a playground with covered picnic tables. A major renovation was completed in August 2015, which included the addition of four classrooms, a library/media center, and enlarged and updated kitchen and cafeteria, and a more secure office suite.

    Family involvement has been a key to our success, with a well-organized PTA, actively engaged parents/guardians, and volunteers who log almost 6,000 volunteer hours each year. Our SBDM Council has been in place since 1994. SBDM committees (Curriculum, School Climate, and Communication) are open to parents and teachers.

    Glendover provides students with many extra-curricular opportunities. Programs include Chorus, STLP, Lexington Children's Workshops, Academic Team, Cross Country and Girls on the Run. We also have multiple music programs throughout the year (Chorus, Band, Orchestra), and International Night with a Parade of Nations, Science Fair and Science Fun Night, and a Book Fair Night where students perform for their peers. The Glendover Basketball League attracts families from all over Lexington.

    Our school has several community partnerships including the R.E.A.L. Men Read (Read. Excel. Achieve. Lead) mentoring program; Blessings in a Backpack, a partnership with Hunter Baptist Church that furnishes weekend food; Shop with a Cop, which provides holiday support for students; Sweet Blessings, which provides birthday cakes for needy children; and our Children's Fund, which supports the needs of students (glasses, doctor's visits, and other emergency services).
