The Glenroy School, the land for the school was donated by Andrew Roy, I am not sure about the exact date of construction, the nearest I can come up with is around 1910. There was a long set of cement steps with a hand rail that led from Route 93 up the hill to the school. The school was a two story wooden structure with steps to the front and back to reach the classrooms, plus a bell on top of the building. The rooms were spacious and each room had it's own pot belly coal stove for keeping the students and teachers warm in the winter months. Each student had a wooden desk and eventually had their own lunch room.

There were only six grades at the Glenroy School and when the boys and girls reached the seventh grade they went to Coalton School. There was no playground equipment at Glenroy school. The restrooms were located in the back of the school. The school build was razed in 1944.
