Glebe is an important part of the North Glebe Road community between Lee Highway, Washington Boulevard, Fairfax Drive and North Quincy Street. This location allows the school to celebrate Arlington’s rich cultural diversity. Glebe’s student population, white, Hispanic, African-American and Asian, closely reflects that of Arlington.

Glebe’s teaching staff believes in and implements techniques that encourage active learning. Students are engaged in hands-on activities in all curricular areas. From the moment students enter Glebe’s doors, they become directly involved in learning.
 
Glebe recognizes that children learn and grow in different ways and at different paces. Glebe’s teaching staff supports and implements a differentiated approach designed to accommodate and support each child’s learning style and abilities.
 
Glebe is a Foreign Language Elementary School. All Glebe students attend Spanish class 135 minutes a week. In addition to learning Spanish language orally and in writing, students learn about the culture and arts of the Spanish-speaking countries. Students and families at Glebe participate in our exemplary project called S.M.Art Project. S.M.Art stands for science, math, art and technology. The key concept behind the project is the teaching of aspects of the students’ math and science curriculum through integration and engagement with a modern art form, visual art, dance, music or theatre.
