Boardman Glenwood Middle School was originally the home of Boardman Junior High School when it was constructed in 1961. It became a middle school in 1969. BGMS currently houses grades five through eight and serves approximately 700 students.
The vast majority of students at BGMS reside east of Market Street. The exceptions are those students who live in the area whose boundaries are from Southwoods Drive to Deerpath Drive, and Green Bay and Market Street to Hitchcock Road.
Boardman Glenwood is located on Glenwood Avenue just north of Boardman High School. The school is bordered by Glenwood Avenue on the west, Southwoods Drive on the north, Market Street to the east and Boardman High School to the immediate south.
All vistors must register at the attendance office upon entering the school.
The United States Land Ordinance of 1785, which surveyed the Northwest Territory, provided opportunities to settlers who chose to live in this newly acquired area. This territory would eventually become the states of Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Michigan, and Wisconsin. This vast territory was divided into plots of land which measured six square miles called townships.
The state of Connecticut owned a portion of land in this new territory. These townships were eventuallly sold to buyers who had never seen the land they were prepared to purchase. Elijah Boardman and Thomas Canfield, two Connecticut residents, each purchased a plot of land that was a portion of the Connecticut Western Reserve Land Grant. Western Reserve Road, our township's border to the south, is a direct reference to that land grant. The plot of land purchased by Elijah Boardman over two hundred years ago now bears his name.
WHAT IT MEANS TO BE A SPARTAN
Perhaps the greatest city-state of ancient Greece was the city of Sparta and the most respected warriors were the men of Sparta known as Spartans. The Spartans were for centuries the foremost military power in Greece. They created one of the toughest and most disciplined armies in world history. Their soldiers were trained to be tough, obedient and, above all, to know no fear. Prior to leaving for battle, the men of Sparta were given their shield and were told to return "with this or upon this" meaning that Spartans could only return victorious or dead.
Education, respect, discipline, courage, and honor were characteristics that were demanded of each and every Spartan!
