Gloria Floyd Elementary School strives to provide students with an excellent education in a safe and caring learning environment. We set high curriculum standards, guiding our students to reach and maintain academic excellence, while also promoting the emotional, social, and behavioral skills needed for them to grow and develop to their full potential as responsible members of our society.

Our school benefits from a supportive and engaged parent community, headed by the local PARENT TEACHER ASSOCIATION (PTA), which volunteers thousands of hours each year in support of our educative goals.

We welcome and encourage you to explore our website where you can find important information as well as useful educational tools for students, parents, and teachers.
