Welcome to the Gleason School website!  Whether you are a current student, parent, community member, alumni or prospective member of the Gleason School family, we hope to provide you with all the information necessary to make your experience with our school the best. 

At Gleason, we feel very fortunate to be a PreK-12 school all on the same campus.  This setting allows interaction of activities between the different grades and provides for richer learning experiences with unlimited possibilities.  Gleason has a truly unique family atmosphere with a faculty and staff that is second to none and ready to follow a child’s educational needs from the first day through the door, all the way across the graduation stage.

Since our founding in 1906, the campus has undergone many social and physical changes.  Gleason’s first public school was housed in the Masonic Male & Female Institute and to this day remains the center of the community.  Showing perseverance through the Great Depression, a new school building was constructed in 1929.  Over the years since 1947, additional new constructions in 1982, 1997, and 2004 have kept Gleason School’s facilities ready and able to serve the ever-changing needs of our students and community.

Our mission is to provide an educational environment that allows opportunity for developing the full potential of all students, enabling them to assume their roles as positively contributing participants in a complex and changing world.  We work daily to achieve this mission by focusing on 7 core beliefs.

  1. A student’s education must prepare him/her to interpret information and understand facts, principles, and concepts for daily living in a technology-based society.

  2. In order for the student to become a lifelong learner, opportunities should be offered allowing him/her to develop personal, social, and communication skills that will enhance emotional and physical well-being.

  3. A student’s learning needs should be the primary focus of all decisions impacting the work of the school.

  4. Every student can learn when instruction provides levels of challenge, ensuring the success of each student.

  5. Our school must have highly qualified, effective teachers and administrators.

  6. Our school must provide adequate facilities for learning within a safe environment.

  7. The responsibility for the total education of the student is shared by the school, home, community, church and other civic organizations.
