Known originally as the Saunders School District when it was organized formally in June 1918, the name was changed to Glenn sometime before 1944. In 1928, local men constructed a one-room schoolhouse using locally cut logs at SW6-8-15E in what would later be the Rural Municipality of Reynolds. The school closed in June 1968 and the district was dissolved later that year. Its area became part of the Agassiz School Division.

The teachers of Glenn School were Vera Ellen Horn (1928-1929), Nellie Irene Roth (1929-1930), H. Angus McDonald (1930-1932), Anne M. Harris (1933-1935), Kathleen Violet Heindle (1935-1938), Pauline Iris Palsson (1938-1939), Marion M. Winston (1939-1940), Olive M.

Orlins (1945-1946), Ida Pearl McMunn (1946-1947), Helen Ostry (1947-1948), Shirley Wechreschuk Biedler (1948-1949), Margaret McMunn (1949-1951), Henry B. Unrau (1951-1952), John P. Beda (1952-1953), George Bernard Schmidt (1953-1954), Shirley Senchuk (1954-1956), Joseph Bernard Cooper (1956-1957), Eva Fast (1957-1958), Harry Unger (1958-1959), Peter Cesmystruk (1959-1960), John Chobotar (1960-1961), Helen Kissick (1961-1962), George Henderson (1962-1966), Mrs. William Ellis (1966-1967), and Lorna Feilberg (1967-1968).
