Gribbin Elementary School
Welcome To Our School
The Eugene J. Gribbin Primary School was built in 1966. Our school was named after Mr. Gribbin, a former principal at Glen Cove High School as well as a Superintendent for the district in 1941. Mr. Gribbin's name was synonymous with education in Glen Cove for many years.
Currently Gribbin School houses 399 students in grades k-2.
The entire staff is dedicated to educating and nurturing the whole child. We strive for a safe and secure environment where every child is encouraged to excel.
"The lesson you teach today is not confined to the walls of the classroom. Once it is implanted in the heart and mind of a child it can change the world".
