History:

In 1975, the Cumberland County Board of Education and the County Court decided to build a Junior High School that included grades 7-9. The new junior high was named for a leading county educator, Glenn Martin, who was serving on the school board at that time. The partially completed Martin Junior high opened in the fall of 1977. In 1994, the school board decided to make Martin a K-8 school effective for the 1994-1995 school year and by 1996 Martin was a complete K-8 school. In the fall of 2005, a PreK class was added. Presently, Glenn Martin Elementary is a PreK - 8th grade school servicing approximately 750 students.
