Our History

Glenn Dale Elementary is nestled into the close-knit community of Glenn Dale. The oldest section of the school was opened in the early 1900's as a two room schoolhouse. Prior to that time, the community had been served by a one room school on a nearby piece of land donated by the Duval family. The school grew with the community and two additions to the building were made. With declining enrollment during the 70's, the school was closed. Later, it was reopened as a Head Start facility.

In 1993, after many requests by longtime Glenn Dale residents (many of them former students), the county reopened Glenn Dale Elementary. Glenn Dale has grown each year and has added another addition to the building. The new 8-room addition opened for students for the 2000/2001 school year.
