Glen Ridge Public Schools Reviews

Going to Glen Ridge High School for 6 years has been a true experiences. I've met great people and have grown bonds with teachers that are willing to be by my side and chear me on to get to college and all aid me with tools and resources. But at the same time the school can be a little lacking with teachers and also the school as a whole. Glen Ridge was very heavy concentrated on sports and lacked a grasp on STEM, which has start to explode and expand to many school. Glen Ridge really just stated to grasp STEM and started to bring new tech to the schools. Teachers also lack sometimes with some teacher doing a semi-good job but at times lack not teaching the class or not doing anything.
All in all while the school has its ups and downs, I've learned a lot and also all the school grow and change with new faces every year.

Glen Ridge Public Schools provides a somewhat great experience. Besides the food, culture and physical buildings, the Glen Ridge School District does a fine job of preparing students for college and life.
Great schools all around. Not very diverse in some ways but diversity can be measured in many ways. Beautiful buildings and great teachers.
