Glastonbury School District Reviews
The Glastonbury School district is highly rated and often bragged about by many students and parents. While many parents move into the Glastonbury district to attempt to aid their children in their education, Glastonbury is not all its cracked up to be. While a wide variety of programs are offered along with sports and extracurriculars, there are many negatives. A lack of diversity causes for many issues in cultural appropriation and being In what's known as the "Glastonbury bubble". Many people who grow up and go to school in Glastonbury are sheltered in their school with countless teachers who let their personal and political opinions shine through. All and all, while Glastonbury does have countless opportunities, the negativities of teachers and stigmas attached cancel out leading to a 3/5 stars.
I have had a great experience at Glastonbury High School. I moved to Glastonburymy freshman year, and it was not a hard transition at all. The teachers and students are all so welcoming, and the enviroment at the school is exactly what I was looking for in a high school. The school has so many opportunities in sports, and has so many clubs and organizations that help you get involved with your community. It provides you with numerous resources, and helps one to follow their passions and dreams. I am so glad I came to GHS, and am so thankful for the experience I’ve had at the school.
I loved Glastonbury High School! and the lower levels were only a little less perfect. Although there will always be bad teachers in the system, there are always some willing to help and offer success. The resources in the public school district are vast, and more extensive than most private high schools. The sports are well-funded, and there has never been a year in which we have not won a state championship in some sport. The music department is well-funded and represented, and a great source of pride for the quality of ensembles, derived by a combination of great instructors and talented and determined musicians. Academically tough, but success is possible and there is little of a competitive atmosphere.
