Mr. Cole Yarborough

Welcome to our school website! I have the privledge of serving the students, staff, and community of Glendale-Kenly as the Prinicpal for the 2020-2021 school year. I have been serving as principal at Glendale-Kenly since July of 2017.


As a staff, we strive to cultivate a learning environment where each child is able to be successful personally and academically. 


Glendale-Kenly is a special school with a rich history and we work to ensure that we remain a source of pride and excellence for our community.


I believe school should be a place where students want to run in the door each morning and not run out. We value building relationships with students and parents so each child is nurtured and feels safe so they are able to learn. As a staff, we know that we hold the tools to help students achieve things academically that each child (and family) might not even know is possible; through hard work and perserverence toward each child's academic goals. We also think it is important to have some fun along the way!


Please reach out to me with any questions or concerns you might have regarding our school.
