Glazer Elementary School

2001 Labelle Street
At Glazer Elementary School, student achievement is of most importance. Principal Bennie Glenn and the highly qualified teaching staff know that education is the key to their students’ future success. The Glazer staff knows that by working hand in hand with their community partners and parents, they will “ensure productive citizens in a global society.”
Glazer Elementary was recognized as a Leadership School by Schools of the 21st Century and was also awarded a $100,000 Skillman Improvement Grant, the highest award among six elementary schools included in the 2007 High Performing category out of 300 Detroit elementary schools. The grant helped to fund several programs including a GED certificate program and the purchase of computers to “assist parents of Glazer students who have not completed high school.”
Core academics are top priority at Glazer but students are welcome to participate in extra-curricular activities such as Chess Club, Choir, Art Enrichment Program, Academic Games, After School Tutorial and Art Club, and more. Students are also welcome to participate in the school’s safety patrol, sports program, and Technology and IT Classes.
Throughout the year Glazer holds several events for students and their families to celebrate and showcase the accomplishments of students such as Family Math Night, Computer Club, Annual Field Day, Science and Art Fairs, as well as several others. All these events add to the atmosphere at Glazer and the family feeling the staff creates for students each and every day.
