    Tanya

    Owner
    My name is Tanya Glenn, and my husband, Jason, and I are the proud owners of The Goddard School located in Rockwall. We live in the local community and our two children, Madison and Champion, attend Rockwall ISD schools. Our relationship with The Goddard School began when we first enrolled Madison in the Toddler classroom. After a long search for the perfect school for our little one, we finally found The Goddard School and even though it was a bit of a drive, it was worth it for the education and socialization that The Goddard School provided. Years later, Champion also attend The Goddard School. Now both of our children are exceling at school, and we believe strongly that the foundation that both received from The Goddard School set them up for success. As parents, we experienced firsthand what an amazing school like this can do for our children, our community, and for helping to develop strong future leaders. That is why we wanted to bring The Goddard School to Rockwall.
