Gladesboro Elementary School derives its name from "Gladesborough," a name given to the area around 1850 by Sara Cook, a descendant of the first settlers who sought refuge following the Revolutionary War. She was amazed by the glades leading into the community from various directions. When a name was needed to establish a Post Office, the spelling was changed to Gladesboro, which then became the official name for the area. Gladesboro still remains a small rural community today. The current school was built in 1955. In 2001, additional administrative offices, classrooms, gymnasium, and media center were constructed to provide state-of-the-art facilities for our students.
The mission of Gladesboro Elementary School is to establish a strong foundation for lifelong learning for all students.
