Choice Program: Communications with Foreign Language
Welcome to Glendale Acres Communication/Foreign Language Academy! Glendale Acres is a public primary school in the Cumberland County School System in Fayetteville, North Carolina. The school was built in 1966 and serves Kindergarten through second grade. Ashley Elementary School is our ‘sister school’ which third- through fifth-grade students attend.
Glendale Acres is a School of Choice, focusing on communication skills and foreign language. The communication component of our choice program concentrates on the enhancement of reading, writing, listening, speaking, and viewing. Students develop basic skills in Spanish through the foreign language component of our choice program with weekly instruction by the Spanish teacher.
Glendale Acres is committed to providing a safe and caring environment that will ensure success and nothing less. Through a variety of instructional approaches and student-focused decision-making, we strive to enable students to become lifelong learners and productive citizens.
It is the belief of the Glendale Acres faculty and staff that the children entrusted to our care are unique, progress at their own rate, and have diverse needs and abilities. They must be provided with a solid foundation upon which their educational experiences will be built. As we guide our students through their daily activities, we strive to create an environment that will encourage them to reach their highest academic potential while fostering emotional, physical, and social development. We strive to help students develop independence. Our faculty motivates students through effective teaching techniques to think clearly, critically, and to make sound judgments with respect to self and others.
We utilize parents and other resource persons within the community to help our students. Our school motto, “Learning with Love and Laughter”, epitomizes the nurturing environment provided at Glendale Acres.
