Message from the Superintendent:

Thank you for your interest in the Glendale Elementary School District. The District is part of the diverse community of Glendale, AZ, home to the Arizona Cardinals, Arizona Coyotes, BCS Championships, Superbowls, historic downtown Glendale, dairy farms and family- owned businesses that attract young and old from a variety of cultures and backgrounds. Homes range from quaint houses that exude charm and character to newer homes in the Westgate and Arrowhead areas. Glendale offers all of the conveniences of a modern city, and is a great place to live and work.

Joseph Quintana

As the Superintendent, I am privileged to oversee the day-to-day operations of a kindergarten through eighth grade school district striving to develop a team of faculty and staff who possess the skills and character traits that contribute to student learning; add to a positive, professional, and healthy work environment; and to a District that is a responsible and respected part of the community.

We are proud of the fact that despite the budget challenges school districts and other government agencies are facing, we provide our students and staff attractive and well- maintained facilities, and access to technology and other resources that help students learn and teachers teach. Providing students with a strong education in a respectful and healthy environment is our number one priority.

Again, thank you for considering the Glendale Elementary School District as a place where you would like to teach. If you want to learn more about the District, do not hesitate to contact our Human Resources Department where someone will be available to answer your questions, or check out our website at www.gesd40.org or our facebook page. Congratulations for choosing a noble and rewarding profession. Teachers truly make a difference!
